Terri Schiavo

Republicans jumped onto the Terri Schiavo wagon as fast as they could, beating their pro-life drums with all the hypocritical fervor they could muster. I came across the last-minute debates on C-SPAN this evening, and am having a hard time turning away. The speed and ruthlesness with which the Republicans have politicized this issue is truly repulsive.

One thing I've noticed is that the parents and siblings of Ms. Schiavo is referred to as "the family of Terri Schiavo." Why is Michael Schiavo, her legal husband, no longer considered her family? So much for "preserving the sanctity of marriage."
