1989 (8 images)

3 of 8
Dan Martino, a street preacher from Chattanooga, Tennessee, argues with Adrienne Gillespie, 15, of Layton, Utah, over the controversial “right-to-die” case before the Supreme Court on December 6, 1989. The court heard arguments in the case of Nancy Beth Cruzan, a 32-year old Missourian woman who has been in a coma since a January 11, 1983 accident. Her parents are fighting the state over their right to remove Nancy Beth’s feeding tube. The preacher’s sign says “Only the Lord Jesus had a right to die!”, and another reads “Only God has the right to pull the plug”. (UPI Photo/Matt Mendelsohn/Files)
