The flood of media attention on the Schiavo case could leave you thinking America is deeply divided on the right-to-die issue, and on the question of whether government intervention is appropriate. But:
… a 2003 Fox News poll found just 2 percent of Americans think the government should decide this type of right-to-die issue … And in the past week, an overwhelming majority — 87 percent — of Americans polled by ABC News and the Washington Post said that if they were in the same state as Terri Schiavo, they too would want their feeding tube removed.
For a change, America is united, not divided. But you’d never guess that from watching the evening news.
