Terri Schiavo

This is the 40 something year old woman in Tampa who is being kept alive by her parents. Her husband has been fighting for a few years now to let her die by removing instruments such as a feeding tube. Her parents have been fighting against her husband. Mr. Schiavo says that his wife would not want to be kept alive. Her parents believe that she will be able to recover with time and therapy while many doctors say that she will never be ale to. What are your thoughts on this? Google Terri Schiavo and see how many results you find. The courts are supposed to have a result later today.

Wow--I think that if God had wanted things to be different, he would make it that way.

Who is paying for the feeding tube would be my question. IF the gov.'t is forking the bill and the doctors have said there is just no way she will ever recover, then I think it is unfair to keep her alive.

That's my opinion without really knowing all the facts...

Well, to be completely honest, I haven't really followed closely with the whole issue. All I know is that when I see her picture it makes me ache on the inside. I really like your blog nate, I will return!

I haven't really kept up with it either...and her picture does break my heart. I know that if it were me that were like that...I would not want to go on living like that if I would never recover....
