" Study Indicates PVS Patients Aware, Can Communicate"
Certainly puts a new spin on dear Terri Schiavo's case. Where she was once a martyr only to moral blindness and legal perfidy, now we see she was also a victim of intransigent scientific ignorance. This is just a(nother) case of researchers confirming by scientific findings what the moral truth had already declared: Don't starve that woman to death, she's a living human being! The problem is that for some, even when that claim is obvious (namely, about themselves), the meaning of "human being" is just as valueless (except of course for themselves).
