Silence from the Left . . .

It is unfortunately noted that the case of Terri Schiavo has been by and large a topic of internet conversation among Catholic and religious bloggers. Raving Atheist can be credited for bringing this matter to the attention of his readers. From the comments box, a possible and jarring explanation for the silence of so many:
"I think (and hope) that most atheists, like most anybody, would oppose Terri Schiavo's death by starvation for a simple, non-theological reason: it's murder. More importantly, as RA notes, why does the interest in this stem largely from religious and conservative blogs/websites? Where is the liberal outrage over this? Is RA right that the left's support of abortion and reflexive opposition to most positions of the Catholic Church puts them in an untenable position regarding a case like Terri Schiavo's? As a liberal, I find that horrifying..."
