Terri Schiavo: her right to live or die?
What is wrong with the Republicans? Why are they involving themselves in a personal matter? What is to be gained by forcing themselves upon a family like they are? Peggy Noonan is right, though wrong. The Repubs will pay a price, for interfering in a private family matter, for rushing through laws designed for one person, not for the community-at-large. This is a slippery slope and I don't like it!

To respond to the suggestion that Michael, Terri's husband, is playing god; well, so are Terri's parents and those who want to keep her alive. This argument is phony, and without merit.

Do I want Terri to die? Yes, yes, I do. She will be better off dead. Anyone in her situation would be better off deceased. I know that I would prefer to be dead, and not kept alive artificially. If I am unable to use my arms, legs, if I am unable to move around unencumbered, please kill me. I will sign any release absolving you of all liability, granting you immunity from prosecution, if you do the necessary deed.

You may think that I have a death wish. Nothing could be further from the truth, I just believe that if life requires artificial means for it to continue, than it isn't a life worth living.

That is all for now.
