RIP Terri Schiavo

Terri Schiavo: 1964-2005

Terri Schiavo passed away this morning. Her fight for life here on Earth is over. This woman endured more than anyone could ever desire to. Being starved to death is not a pretty picture, despite what her husband and his ghoulish attorney say.

And she now has Life eternal in the arms of God; Our Father in Heaven. She will no longer need nourishment beyond that of the Father's love.

This issue, however, will not disappear right away. The debate will continue for years to come. And yes, a precedent has been set through the law--something that I put a lot of faith into--that someone who has no record down as to their wishes can be killed. Make no mistake. She was killed. She was killed the moment Judge Greer allowed the hearsay into the record that she wanted to die, according to her husband.

Many people dislike that. They don't like the fact that I use the word "kill" to describe what happened to Terri Schiavo. But what else can be drawn in terms of a conclusion. Michael Schiavo did not remember his wife's supposed wishes until six years after her accident, if there really was one. That's conjecture and opinion on my part, and I won't apologize for my suspicion; something more than warranted when one examines the facts of this case.

Hopefully, we--as rational people--will do two things. First, make out a living will. I know that we've heard this since the beginning of this most recent fight, but it's true. Just make out a living will. Second, that we will get legislation passed in the States that won't allow this sort of judicial malfeasance to occur again when it comes to the life or death of a fellow human being.

Publius II
