I know this doesn't parallel exactly w/ Terri's case but a caller on Bill Bennett's show this morning asked if there were any cases where people were "charged with starvation" and I found this one fitting and figured I'd pass it along.

Well...what chance did she have of recovery? I certainly would not want to live in her condition. It was only humane that the starve her to death. < /sarcasm>

A case very much like this just went to a jury here in Santa Cruz. The two people starved an adult (retarded) sibling and their elderly mother to death.

Seems to me the only "crime" they committed was not keeping her clean during the "death process". Terri is so much more fortunate than this woman (sarcasm).

It doesn't matter. Terri will die a miserable death becuase too many Americans don't want to hear it anymore: media exhaustion.

Too bad Ashley Smith couldn't meet with Michael Shiavo. < / sarcasm>

Not too different. I guess the main difference is that the judge did not order the starvation in that case.

Starvation is "moral" when commited by a "State" sanctioned killing center.

Adult Protective Services, a division of the state Department of Human Services, investigated a complaint involving Dreager's care in July 2002. Counselors investigated and closed the case a year later, saying she no longer needed their help.

From the time the case closed to the time Dreager died, no other complaints were made.

**************

Fortunately, the judgement our state agencies is infallible.

This is so sad.

Maybe they can get Felos as a lawyer and import Greer as judge. I don't see the difference in concept between this and Terri Schiavo's case. Was the adoptive sister her legal guardian? All she has to say is that this woman wanted to die, they discussed it while watching a movie.

Pulled a Mikee Schivo eh?

Sick Bastards. Hope they rot in decline the same way they forced this poor woman to do.

Excellent find.

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.

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.

Dreager, who had cerebral palsy

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.

Thank you for posting it. Let those who think starving someone to death isn't horrible.
