Terri Schiavo’s Last Day of Food?

March 18th, 2005 Visited 1365 times, 1 so far today

I’m sure everyone’s reading and seeing information about this case.  I really don’t know if I can actually add any more to the discussion that hasn’t already been said.

I echo Peggy Noonan in her comment that it’s amazing how much press this story is getting.  It is important to get this right.

  • We need to show that we support life.
  • We need to set a precedent for life.
  • We need to make sure that we stop the tide of life being eroded as a guarantee.
  • We need to make sure that all Americans have the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, regardless of their mental or physical state.

These are important times.  Pray that God might spare us from ourselves and our lust to have things convenient for ourselves.  Pray that the judges and people in this case would have guidance from on high– but most of all:  That He might receive glory in this.

    I think I heard on the new’s last night that something would be decided today about Terri. I don’t understand after all these years why her husband want’s to let her starve to death. May God be with Terri and those who hold her future in their hands.

    The right to life is in the Constitution. The right to die is not. Sure, it’s a stickier question than that, since there can be some disagreement about what means should be used to keep a body alive. The problem is, we’re not talking a person on a ventilator. We’re talking about a person that is coherent, and is only being fed from a tube. She could be taught to eat!

    In this case, there is nothing from this woman saying that she wanted to be starved and dehydrated should she be in this state. We only have the word of her unfaithful, money-grubbing husband and his band of paid right-to-die doctors.

    Humans also have the right to die if they so choose.
