I was listening to the radio on the way to the university when I heard Jesse Jackson talking to the press outside of Terri Schiavo’s hospice facility.
He spoke of having acted in a ministerial capacity many times near the end of people’s lives. He talked about Demerol and removing life support and fairly rapid expirations. Then, the shocker:
“Terri Schiavo has been without food and water for twelve days. They are starving her to death.”
The Jesse Jackson who backed off his pro-life views to seek the Democratic Party’s nomination so many years ago has decided he is willing to draw a line.
