Larry Gostin on Terri Schiavo

In this week's, Journal of the American Medical Association (subscription required), Larry Gostin, Professor of Law; Associate Dean (Research and Academic Programs); Director, Center for the Law and Public's Health, has an interesting article addressing the aftermath of the Terri Schiavo case.  In the article, entitled, "Ethics, the Constitution, and the Dying Process:  The Case of Theresa Marie Schiavo, he provides some ideas on how we can best address the many competing concerns that arise when individuals make end of life decisions.  He concludes the article by stating, "If political leaders were truly committed to a culture of life they would pursue humanistic policies to dignify the manner in which people live and die."  [bm]
