Episode Summary

The Right to Die and Sexual Disorders
The entire country is watching as Terri Schiavo is dying. Schiavo has been in a vegetative state for 15 years, and last Friday the feeding tube keeping her alive was removed. Her husband says she would want to die, while her parents insist she should live. Now it's up to Congress to decide. Our program begins this week with an extended panel discussion with Zanny Minton Beddoes of The Economist and Peter Beinart of The New Republic. They discuss the right to life and Congressional involvement in the matter.

The tragic murder of 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford, the victim of a known pedophile, has raised the question of whether pedophilia is a treatable disease. Dr. Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins University says yes. On our "Back Page" Tucker speaks with Dr. Berlin, founder of The Johns Hopkins Sexual Disorders Clinic, about the chemical, biological and mental factors that contribute to pedophilia and how it can be treated.moreless
