Terri Schiavo Must Die

     I keep hearing the local news botch say "This complicated issue". I guess we really have a great divide in this country, where something can be so cut and dried to opposite sides of the issue. I haven't heard anyone on either side that thought it was complicated. You know, the fact that this severely brain-damaged woman's face sometimes contorts into what could be considered a smile really shouldn't be construed to mean that she is enjoying any of this. They don't let defense attorneys use vaginal secretion evidence in rape trials anymore -- involuntary physical reactions do not constitute consent -- kinda similar situations in my book. You stroke this vegetable's head and she smiles, or more accurately; her face squinches into something not unlike a smile, that means something? If there were a way to invest in Living Will futures I would so make a ton o' money; 'cause if this case doesn't cause millions of people to have one drawn up I don't know what would. "You too could fall victim to a political agenda, don't let this happen to you!" Because, aren't we really just talking about taking back the right of the spouse to decide for the impaired better half?

     Pity Terri, hubby, parents; they are all just tools of some pretty big, powerful tools in their own right.

     "This is a complex case with serious issues, but in extraordinary circumstances like this, it is wisest to always err on the side of life," said the killingest Governor in American history, at the beginning of an event on Social Security at the Tucson Convention Center.todaynyt

If I were Terry, I would just want to die. But from an outside perspective, with complete unbias, I can't understand why they just don't give custody to those who apparently care for her (which leaves out her husband who is probably to blame for her condition). Who knows, maybe their waiting for a miracle.

Please explain how the fuck you figure the husband is responsiible for her condition???? That is trulty an unforgivable thing to say when you are so obviously oblivious to the facts of the case. To quoiote the San Francisco Herald :"The furor over Schiavo, who left no written instructions before suffering a chemical imbalance that sent her into a persistent vegetative state 15 years ago, "should be a wake-up call for everybody to get an advance directive,'' said Jack Lewin, a Sacramento physician and chief executive of the California Medical Association."
Get your damn facts straight you fucking nazi.
