Life and Death: Reflections on the Terri Schiavo Case

Recorded on April 18, 2005

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Terri Schiavo's death was a deeply personal tragedy. Yet it also became an emotionally charged national debate over personhood and politics, family and federalism. There seems to be no shortage of questions and no easy answers. Who may decide who lives and who dies? What are the proper roles of our state and national governments? How should society protect life while respecting the wishes of individuals and their families? Join us as our distinguished panelists address these and other fundamental questions surrounding this continuing national debate.
