* Schiavo: Why No Lethal Injection?
I don't understand the argument that the right to lifers use to pull on our heartstrings about how it is cruel and unusual that Schiavo is being allowed to die of thirst and starvation. Doesn't this push in the other direction and make euthanasia a better idea, not a worse idea? Isn't it obvious that she should have been given a lethal injection instead and allowed to die quickly and painlessly? But, if the law forbids that (which is undoubtedly the fault of the right to lifers), then this is the only other choice, no?
