Terri’s Fate: Prelude to Obamacare

Last week marked the sixth anniversary of the court-ordered killing of Terri Schindler Schiavo, an innocent, harmless and defenseless woman who succumbed to two weeks of forced starvation on March 31, 2005.

Terri was not dying or brain-dead and she wasn’t on any kind of life support. Terri’s needs were being provided by caregivers, no differently than infants, toddlers and many elderly are cared for. Despite this, judges, politicians and pundits bent over backward to paint her unworthy of life. Beholden to the all-powerful abortion lobby, they rushed to the cause of an adulterous, impatient and greedy husband who wanted her dead and forgotten.

Indeed, the battle for Terri’s life proved especially nerve-racking for the abortion lobby, its champions in the media and its minions in government. Despite their unprecedented legislative and judicial victories, these engineers of industrialized death have found that killing for convenience can’t be taken for granted. So they trivialized, derided, even vilified a disabled woman lying in a Florida nursing home. After all, any legislative action or judicial decision to continue feeding her might have been viewed as validating her life. And that might have led to validating human life in a broader context.

Perhaps none of this should come as a surprise. Even before Roe v. Wade, America had begun devolving into a loose association of self-centered individuals who tolerate others only so long as they prove useful. Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) personifies this utilitarian attitude; in 2009, while defending efforts to socialize American medicine, she declared abortion “preventive health care.” And thanks to the Democrat majority then in Congress, anti-life bureaucrats like Health & Human Services boss Kathleen Sebelius now can shunt billions to “community health centers” like Planned Parenthood and other purveyors of contraception and abortion.

In the long run, this means fewer and fewer taxpayers and ever deeper cuts in government services. How, then, will Democrats fund their spending sprees? The answer is clear. Unable to increase revenues, they’ll decrease expenditures. For Barack Obama, Harry Reid and like-minded politicians, killing is once again the answer. Just like they’ve sold abortion to generations indoctrinated in radical feminism, they’ll sell euthanasia to a stunted electorate saddled with trillions in debt and a graying population of unproductive consumers. Just as “reproductive health care” became code for dismembering children in utero, “geriatric health care” will become the polite term for smothering grandparents in bed. All that’s needed is to codify it, as some states have begun doing. And as the Catholic bishops and other observers have pointed out, Obamacare paves the way for it on the federal level.

If Obamacare is ever fully implemented, voters should not be surprised when they find Terri’s fate is their final reward for having supported America’s party of death.

What goes around comes around.
