The Human Argument For Terri Schiavo.
[BUMPED TO TOP]
Her eyes are open.
Indeed, the hubbub we're seeing right now is not about Terri exclusively. It is about how our society values life.
...who dares say you have no right to commune with your gravely ill child? To comfort your child? To pray for your child? Who dares say you have no right to hope that she will recover no matter what the doctors say? Who dares say you have no right to comfort, commune with and pray for her even if you have given up hope? Yes, the woman is mortally ill. Who dares say that her life is therefore worthless, to be cut off at her husband's whim?
So does LaShawn Barber.
Blogs for Terri has more, and it doesn't look good.
Peggy Noonan has a column up on OpinionJournal.com:
But in the end, it comes down to this: Why kill her? What is gained? What is good about it? Ronald Reagan used to say, in the early days of the abortion debate, when people would argue that the fetus may not really be a person, he'd say, "Well, if you come across a paper bag in the gutter and it seems something's in it and you don't know if it's alive, you don't kick it, do you?" No, you don't.
UPDATE 5 [with bump to top]:
Tom DeLay speaks out:
WASHINGTON - House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) today condemned the removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube and pledged to continue working for a legal or legislative means to save her life.

Michael Schiavo dares say you can not commune with your gravely ill child! I can't believe he can get away with that... Hopefully that will soon change! Terri's parents have really been treated unfairly by michael. How does he get the right to refuse her parents from visiting Terri?
If it pleases the court a new guardian must be appointed!!! Very soon I might add.

That Fla. judge that said Terri Schiavo's feeding tube be removed needs to be removed from his seat on the bench.
Posted by: annika at March 18, 2005 02:03 PM
OH! MY GOSH... THIS IS A TOTAL DISREGARD OF TERRI'S RIGHTS . TERRI DID NOT HAVE A LIVING WILL!!!
MICHAEL SHIAVO IS ONLY DOING THIS BECAUSE HE HAS A NEW FAMILY! HE IS HER HUSBAND ONLY ON PAPER!
MIKE YOU REALLY NEED TO TAKE A HIKE. YOU AREN'T FOOLING ANYONE.

Michael Schiavo won a 1.7million dollar malpractice suit for Terri. He say's there isn't any money! That money should have been invested for Terri's care, not for legal fees to meet her demise.
Terri does not have a living will!!! Her rights are being violated as a disabled person by pulling that feeding tube out.
Michael say's this is a family matter. Her family has been refused any say so.
MICHAEL SCHIAVO HAS A NEW FAMILY... MICHAEL NEEDS TO GET LOST.

Dear WILLisms.com, this story really hit home hard because Terri Schiavo is so much like my sister who was in a car wreck over 2 decades ago! I know you understand because my sister just so happens to be your Aunt.
I urge your readers to pick up there phones and call their Congressmen and Senators and give this woman a voice! since she can not speak for herself.
Michael Schiavo is clearly violating her rights as a handicapped person since she Does Not Have A Living Will. He obviously has a conflict of interest. He needs to relinquish his guardianship and get on with his new family.

Typical liberal mumbo jumbo , pro death ruling for Judge Whittmoore to rule Terri Schiavo will not have her feeding tube reinstated!!!!

This is not a liberal versus a conservative issue. This is an issue of getting your estate planning in order, before you go through something like this. If a living will was in place, this would not even be in the news at all. If you haven't done so, get a living will and don't put your family, nor govt. through this. This was the point of my posting at my blog. Do it NOW!
