This Terri Schiavo "execution" was such a tragedy and extremely appalling. I cannot believe America would let such a heinous thing happen to a human being. I praise God that he finally took Terri home, and away from this inhumane society. How could anyone make a decision to starve and dehydrate someone to death? How could our leaders let this happen, and make silly statements that their "hands are tied...there's nothing more they can do"! I recall they decided that (1) Iraq had weapons of mass destruction; (2) to invade Iraq; (3) ignore the decision of the United Nation; and (4) recruit and send our children to a foreign land to fight their personal war. But for something as simple as to replace a feeding tube to keep a human being alive, his/their "hands are tied", UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
I know this may be a simple family dispute, and I'm sure it's all about the dollars/money, but how can we, or anyone let this happen?
I have looked at this in many ways and have had several discussions with Todd and friends on this subject. However, I just can't seem to understand why Mr. Schiavo would want his wife to die in such an inhumane way. No water, and no food? It would have been easier if she was given a shot to die. I would "feel" for him, and understand if he had decided to pull her tube 14 years ago, or even 10 years ago, it surly would have been a lot easier for Terri and her parents. He claimed she did not want to suffer, but I believed she suffered the most these past 2 weeks.
You know, I have been questioning the legality of his decision, because he had abandoned his husbandly duties several years ago when he decided to have a relationship with another women, and bear children with this other woman. It's clear he has always been thinking of himself (only), and probably the money as well.
Of course the "rumor mill" has begun on this issue already, only a few hours after Terri succumbed to her slow, painful death. It is rumored and reported that the day Terri became ill, she and her husband had fought over how much she had spent (getting her hair done), soon thereafter she was found laying face down on the floor making some strange noises, and gasping for breath. The Reports are claiming that Mr. Schiavo had abused Terri! I also heard reports that several of Terri's bones are broken, which is reported was not broken while she has been incapacitated these past 15 years. Who knows if they are true. I'm glad an autopsy is being done on Terri, so all these allegations can be put to rest.
I'm also understanding that Terri had not undergone any testing in a number of years. Which is insane, because it's clear our technology has grown tremendously, compared to 15 years ago. Things we were unable to do then/or cure then, can be cured now. Terri may have been saved, if only Mr. Schaivo had taken some of the dollars he received (from this incident), and had his wife fully testing, to make sure nothing else could have be done to save his wife, before pulling her feeding tube and starving her to death.
One public statement Terri's mother (Mrs. Shindler) made to Terri's husband (Michael) that tore me apart , was "you have your life and your children, please let me have mine". Why could he not just walk away and let Terri's family have their daughter. Clearly, he abandoned her years ago, when he stopped being her husband.
As much as I disagree with many of Rush Limbaugh's (talk show host) views, I couldn't help but "feel him" when he stated "there are so many killers sitting in jail who needs to die, however they are not killed, instead a helpless woman is being killed/murdered the must vicious and inhumane way (denying her of water and food. )
This issue is really inhumane!!! Please, feel free to share your thoughts with me on this issue.
This week shockingly we lost high-profile, famed Criminal Defense Attorney Johnnie Cochran. Mr. Cochran died from a brain tumor at the age of 67. We all will never forget the strong black man who defended O.J. Simpson, and "got him off". I will never forget his famous statement "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit", and indeed O.J. Simpson was acquitted. After doing some research, I found that Mr. Adam Liptak wrote the best story on Mr. Cochran's life. See below. To the family and friends of Mr. Cochran we send our sincere condolences in your time of sorrow.
Until next week! Have a great weekend!
