The facts of life

The beautiful SarahK (now) of IMAO posted this about the Terry Shiavo case. One of the commenters pushed my buttons and I responded. I figured I'd requote it here for posterity:

Original post:

All the links I've seen about this Schiavo case have seemed like normal advocacy-group stuff(aka, rediculously biased). Now, it's certainly possible that the case actually is that clear-cut, but given that that doesn't happen often(and that if it did, I'd probably hear more about it), I'm going to ask if anyone has a link that talks about this from an unbiased(or even oppositely-biased perspective). I don't care how sick you find the perspective, I'm just interested in seeing something with a different line so I can figure out what the actual facts of the case are for myself.

Not to disbelieve the best-looking IMAO blogger, of course, but it just seems to me like there has to be something else to it that the advocacy groups aren't saying.

My response:

Fact: Terry Shiavo is alive.
Fact: Her husband does not want her to stay that way.
Fact: Her parents do.

Alsadius, are you for life or death? What other facts would you allow to pollute your thinking on this? Life. Death. Those are the FACTS.
