Fox News published this article under a misleading headline, e.g., that the Schiavo case is about “faith versus science.” The article itself is fine, as far as it goes, but the headline writer got it all wrong. Schiavo is about the fundamental right to life of a profoundly disabled woman. It is a case where the judicial branch has been obsessive about process and dismissive of simple justice. It also may be a strong indication that the hegemony of the “bioethical consensus” reached among those within the Bioethics Establishment, is (hopefully) coming to an end.
