03/20/2005 Entry: "Women in Blogging, Day 20"

"I suppose that these statements are technically true. Speechlessness is not always due to destruction of brain structure, but if massive destruction of brain structure is present, that's certainly the way to bet. CAT scans tell you if tissue is present and structured normally, but not if it's working; however, if tissue is absent, you'd think its lack of functionality could be assumed. And yes, if Terri had the same fMRI results as a healthy person, that would bode well for rehabilitation - but as we sometimes say here at Respectful of Otters, it's equally true that if my aunt had testicles, she'd be my uncle. Terri Schiavo doesn't have a cerebral cortex. She's not going to have a normal fMRI pattern. She simply couldn't. So it's pointless to speculate about what it would mean if she did."
Respectful to Otters, March 18, 2005

One of the best, most compassionate and informed entries on Terri Schiavo.

Let Terri Schiavo go, folks. Whatever really was "Terri" is gone already, and you're just keeping the meat alive. That seems incredibly cruel, no, there's no Terri there to be cruel to, maybe cruel to her husband, who's trying to do the right thing. Well, if not exactly cruel, then it's just plain sick to keep her body going in that condition.

The amazing Sisyphus Shrugged has more and more and... aw, just go read her. She's cookin', like usual.

Barbara at The Mahablog is all over the subject as well. I wish I could write like that.
