The Real Million Dollar Baby?

Chuck Colson has a piece about the story which may have been the inspiration for the story Million Dollar Baby, and this one has a happier ending. Worth a read, in part, because it shows that the value of human life, dignity, courage and love are worth more than an existential tear jerker.

Colson quotes journalist Sandy Allyson saying what I think are some true words:
“We can have peace and happiness,” she writes, “in the midst of situations that might have previously been thought of as unendurable. That is just one reason why virtually all disability advocacy groups . . . are so vehemently opposed to this idea of ‘helping’ someone die, which may sound warm and fuzzy, but in the searing light of truth, is just murder.”

Think about it.
