Will They Starve a Woman Who May Be Able to Eat?Topics: Medical Issues
Some of the nurses who have cared for Terri Schiavo have testified that they have given her juice on a rag and small mouthfuls of gelatin. A doctor has testified that there is reason to believe that she may be able to swallow food or be taught to do so. Michael Schiavo has not allowed Terri the doctor-recommended tests that would determine if she could take food orally or be taught to do so.
The implications of this are chilling. If the feeding tube is removed, will attempts be made to feed and hydrate Terri orally? If not, on what basis will oral food and water be denied?
