Perspective or Lack Thereof

I am sickened by many aspects of the Terri Sciavo case but what I read here didn't make me sick, it made me furious: Texas critics question Bush's "life" culture

President George W. Bush's intervention for Terri Schiavo has opened old wounds in Texas where death penalty opponents say his words of support for a "culture of life" ring hollow after so many executions during his time as governor of the state.

Bush said he stepped into the Schiavo case because the United States should have "a presumption in favour of life," but there were 152 executions in Texas during his administration, including some in which the convict's guilt was in doubt, critics said.

"It's hypocrisy at a thousand levels," said University of Houston law professor and death penalty defence attorney David Dow.

"I saw many, many cases where there was substantial doubt about whether someone was guilty or whether the death penalty was the appropriate sentence, but he never said anything," said David Atwood, head of the Texas Coalition Against the Death Penalty. "I really can't say he cares about life."

"We all recognize there is a difference between an innocent person and someone who has committed a heinous crime, but to say one life is important and one isn't, that's politics," Atwood said.
For a person to end up in death row he/she has already gone through due process, something not afforded to Terri Schiavo. Furthermore, what people choose to do with their lives is what makes their lives important. So yeah, I don't consider a serial killer's life as important as Terri's, so bite me.
