When Terri Schiavo collapsed with a cardiac arrest in 1990, she could have had no idea that 32 years later people all over the world would know her name and care very much about the manner in which she died. What began as a private family tragedy ultimately exploded into an international cultural conflagration and what was perhaps the most important legal case involving American bioethics since Roe v Wade. When it was over, Terri was dead, society was bitterly divided, and our culture changed fundamentally.

In this week’s podcast episode (Episode 26) of Humanize, Wesley J. Smith, award winning author and chairman of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism, and host of the Humanize podcast, interviews guest journalist and best-selling author Lynn Vincent. Vincent spent more than a year researching the Schiavo case for her new podcast Lawless, which examines “the frightening fact of American life that not all crime is against the law.” In 14 detailed episodes, Vincent explores the facts, controversy, and meaning of the Terri Schiavo case.
