    Default Terri Schiavo.....what do you think?

    Of course this case is far more reaching that just this particular instance, but what do you guys think? I think it is a topic worth discussing.

    She's gonna be murdered because she's handicapped. She's just a problem that's a drain on everyone. So, let's just get rid of the problem.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    As a catholic, I strongly oppose removing the feeding tube from her. It's God's choice alone to decide whether a life should be taken or not. As human beings, we don't have the power or authority to decide whether somebody should live or die.

    If I was ever in a similar condition, I'd hope to be put down quickly and quietly.

    That still doesn't make it right, though.

    And that is exactly how it is. I work with severely handicapped children. And I see this all too often. It just broke my heart to think that they were going to starve this poor lady to death! One of my kiddos is basically in that same condition. Wheelchair bound, drools, not alot of eye contact. But being around her all the time, you pick up on some of the little things that she does. She is still a human being. At one of our other schools, we do have some kids with feeding tubes. So this really hits close to home with me. Another thing, we have a non-verbal down's syndrome girl who we are almost positive is being sexually abused by her father. The state won't do anything about it because she cannot tell us, therefore there is nothing to suggest this. They just don't want to have to place her somewhere else. Sadly, it is very hard to place handicapped children. I was clueless about these kinds of things until I started working with these kids. They really need some support. I suggested to my family that they go visit a home for the handicapped. It is a real eye opener.

    Dunno - it's really up to the individual if you ask me - is it fair to extend someone's life beyond that where their idea of quality of life has been compromised? To me - no. I'd probably want to be put down if I was even in danger of losing a limb. But there are others that adjust and go on, and good for them, and they should have the right to do that, too. The big issue here is, her husband says this is what she would want - problem is, she never filled out a living will so it's hard to say. The family seems to think she'd want to fight. So it comes down to a he said-they said situation - who's right? I really need to make a living will, but I do make it a point to make my feelings clear to enough people on the matter so should I forget, there should be no question. Because my wife, bless her soul, I don't think has it in her to put me down should it come to it. Hell, she's gonna have a hard enough time cremating me!

    Terri Tried To Say 'I Want To Live'

    By Steven Ertelt


    EditorLifeNews.com

    3-18-5
    PINELLAS PARK, FL (LifeNews.com) -- Just before representatives of her estranged husband Michael removed her feeding tube Friday afternoon, Terri Schiavo reportedly told an attorney for her parents that she wanted to live. Barbara Weller, one of the attorneys for Terri's parents Bob and Mary Schindler, told reporters about her visit with Terri on Friday. "Terri, if you would just say, 'I want to live,' all of this will be over," she told the disabled woman. Weller said Terri desperately tried to repeat Weller's words"'I waaaaannt ...,' Schiavo allegedly said. Weller described it as a prolonged yell that was loud enough that police stationed nearby entered the hospice room. "She just started yelling, 'I waaaannt, I waaaannt,'" Weller explained. At that point, police removed Weller from Terri's hospice room and, later, her feeding tube was removed. Randall Terry recounted Weller's experience on the "Sean Hannity" nationally syndicated radio program. Meanwhile, another Schindler attorney described the mood of Terri's parents after the tumultuous afternoon. "They're devastated," their lawyer, David Gibbs told Reuters after the tube was removed. "They would change places with her in a heartbeat, if there was any way that they could be the one that's sick and hurting, and give their health to Terri. They're a mom, a dad. ... It's a tough day for them."

    the husband should simply divorce her and move on in his life, rather than killing her and making her parents lose out...

    Agreed. I can't say that this is 'living' in any human way. I wouldn't want to exist in such a state.
