Movie Quote of the Week

But society faces momentous decisions. Decisions about the right to die, about abortion, about terminal illness, prolonged coma, transplantation. Decisions about life and death. But society isn’t deciding. Congress isn’t deciding. The courts aren’t deciding. Religion isn’t deciding. Why?

Because society is leaving it to us, the experts. The doctors.
--Richard Widmark, Coma (1978)
