Little Lulu: Dishonest or Stupid?

Here’s Michelle Malkin in her latest crybaby post:

Update: Some bioethicists are now arguing that Terri is not a human being:

Wesley Smith: Bill, do you think Terri is a person?

Bill Allen [a bioethicist]: No, I do not. I think having awareness is an essential criterion for personhood. Even minimal awareness would support some criterion of personhood, but I don’t think complete absence of awareness does.

Michelle, even Christians recognize that there is a difference between a "human being" — which is a biological bag of bones, flesh, nerves, and muscle — and a "person" — which is a human being plus that intangible extra something which many of us call a soul.  Or do you not believe in a soul?  Do you not understand the difference between a person and the carton in which that person is carried?

Besides, read up on your Descartes.  You know, "I think therefore I am".  That’s all that the bioethicist is saying.  Someone who cannot think does not exist as a person, although they biologically exist.  Do you get that?
