A Libertarian Defends Life Over Death

Douglas Kern of Tech Central Station takes an interesting stand defending "life" over "death" in his essay today entitled "Which Terri Schiavo ?". I call the piece interesting for two reasons. First, because his take on Terri Schiavo's situation focuses on the changing attitudes we have as humans as we age and when confronted with situations we did not expect. His writing also is of interest as Doug is not a self-described conservative or liberal; whose position's on life issues are almost predictable; but is a libertarian- that funny in between cohort that is less predictable. I found his arguement to be very persuasive.
