Pulled a Mikee Schivo eh?
Sick Bastards. Hope they rot in decline the same way they forced this poor woman to do.
If those who want to murder Terri get by with it, all of are in danger from anyone who might decide to starve us for the good of the family and society. Then after they killed us, they could claim that we wanted it done.
Phil fyi and files.
Yeah - my neighbors.
Life is good, eh?
Perhaps they should explain that she wanted to die that way.
This is a terrible case. And you must note that the person who was starved was NOT a PVS patient. There is simply no moral equivalency.
Goes well with this story too:
The whole thing is making me sick. What a twisted thing to do to an innocent person and all under the guise of "legality". Seems so obvious to me that the husband has a conflict of interest and therefore custody should be given to the parents and IF after attempted therapy it is universally agreed that she truly is in a PVS then the parents can make the decision.
What is the intent of "law"? To serve itself or to right wrongs?
Dr. William Hammesfahr, the only neurologist who's spent any significant time with Terri, likened her condition to that of a child with cerebral palsy.
That rang true to me. Terri's laugh, and her attempts to speak, sound uncannily like those of a child with cerebral palsy who lives in my neighborhood.
This child, who looks at least as disabled as Terri, gets wheeled around in his wheelchair to parks and ball games. He goes to a special school and also gets to attend school events of his siblings. I hear him laughing in the back of the auditorium at school plays.
So sad that Terri is never allowed to leave her room.
Yeah, I saw that one eailer. Creepy.
Do you have a link to the Collingswood story? If so, I'd appreciate it if you'd post it.
Thank you for posting it. Let those who think starving someone to death isn't horrible.
