FOR YOUR REFERENCE – THE SCHIAVO CASE

Eric Zorn's Notebook
“Here's a handy Webliography on the Terri Schiavo case the subject of his column 3/23/2005:

  • The Terri Schiavo information page,” by Florida attorney Matt Conigliaro is the most pointed-to spot on the Internet by those interested in this story; praised for its breadth and relative objectivity.

  • Key events in the case of Theresa Marie Schiavo,” by Steven Haidar, Dartmouth College/University of Miami; Kathy Cerminara, Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center.

  • “Whether Terri Schiavo will live or die in the coming days has come down to this: Can federal district judge James Whittemore set aside virtually every bedrock constitutional principle on which this nation was founded, just so members of the United States Congress may constitutionalize the nowhere-to-be-found legal principle that a "culture of life" is a good thing?” An analysis by Slate’s Dahlia Lithwick.
  • There are an estimated 4,000 deaths each day where there's a conscious decision to limit treatment in some way…” (ABC News)

  • "Money Evaporating in Terri Schiavo battle,"(Associated Press).

  • Life-Support Stopped for 5-Month-Old in Houston: Two extended analyses on this somewhat related story, one on "HealthLawProf Blog" by Thomas W. Mayo, Associate Professor of Law SMU School of Law, and the other on “Lean Left” by Kevin T. Keith.
  • "The Schiavo Case and the Islamization of the Republican Party," by Juan Cole, professor of history at the University of Michigan.

  • "Terri's Law is unconstitutional," by Chicago attorney Frederick S. Rhine.

  • "Oh my, yes. If there's anything that defines George Bush's career, it is his tendency to err on the side of life." A withering look at the president's career highlights by "Tom Tomorrow."
