An autopsy confirmed almost everything about Terry Schiavo that was believed in the mainstream. Half her brain was gone, no signs of abuse or trauma. The only surprise was that there was no sign of a heart attack and no definitive cause for her collapse in the first place.

As soon as I heard this, early this morning, I couldn't help but think that the Right-To-Live believers would simply reject the autopsy out of hand.

I was right.

Seriously. Evidence? Who needs that. Belief is all that matters; belief is stronger than the best evidence, especially when that belief is a nationwide epidemic.
