Dr. Death - Infant Euthanasia

The New York Times has a profile of Dr. Eduard Verhagen, one of the Dutch physicians who has advocated euthanasia for certain disabled infants.   The article tries to explain why the doctor believes as strongly as he does in his viewpoint concerning this issue.  Unfortunately he receive lots of hate mail from America and he finds it astonishing some of things people say about him, especially since they have never met him. 

Speaking of people who are receiving unwanted and mostly negative attention, the New York Times on Thursday ran a front page story on Judge Greer, the judge who has had the Terri Schiavo case for over 7 years.  It is a great story about a thoughtful , interesting  and courageous Judge who has had to leave membership in his church and travel under guard.  [bm]
