The Schiavo Slant, Part 4
Topic: WorldNetDaily
Today, WorldNetDaily graces us with the preface of Diana Lynne's WND-published "Terri's Story," and it's the strongest sign yet that the book has a pro-Schindler slant.

Some sample quotes from the preface:

-- "What if the husband was mistaken? Or worse, what if he lied as some fear?"

-- "Even if Michael Schiavo would have realized in a quiet moment by himself over the last decade during which he sought to end her life that he was mistaken about Terri's wishes, the pro-death train had already left the station."

-- "While it was debated among family members, lawyers, lobbyists, lawmakers, bioethicists and news commentators as to whether Terri Schiavo would have wanted to live for the past 15 years in her brain-injured state, it is indisputable she never asked to not be fed. She never declared a desire to be dehydrated to death."

-- "At that point, the right-to-die case flashed across the radar screens of pro-life organizations such as Life Legal Defense Foundation, the Alliance Defense Fund, The Christian Defense Coalition, National Right To Life Committee and the American Catholic Lawyers Association, which entered the fray in various ways to bolster the efforts of Terri's parents and siblings to keep her from becoming a 'sacrificial lamb on the stage of the right-to-die movement.'"

That last statement would appear to the theme of Lynne's book: She portrays Terri Schiavo as the "sacrificial lamb on the stage of the right-to-die movement" and bashes anyone who doesn't agree.

We can assume that Lynne's book is biased and in no way "definitive" -- in other words, another "whole story" that's anything but.
