David Limbaugh: Prayers for Terri

Topics: News

- David Limbaugh
Absent a further court order, Terri Schiavo's feeding tube will be removed on Friday, and she will starve -- painfully, many say -- to death. Doesn't it strike you as eerie that the court relied on the testimony of an "estranged" husband in making its decision?

Doesn't it strike you as horrifying that Terri may very well want to live but they are going to cause her to die, not by removing a respirator, but a feeding tube?

Do you really believe that Terri's husband, Michael, who is living with another woman with whom he sired two children, is refusing to relinquish guardianship of Terri to her parents because he is irreversibly committed to carrying out Terri's wishes?

Do you believe that disabled, but conscious and self-breathing people who can't physically feed themselves or verbally express their desire to live, but who have left no written legal directions as to their destiny in such circumstances, should be starved to death?

How likely is it that Terri, now only 41 years old, would have discussed her wishes as to life support with her husband in 1990, when she would have only been in her mid-twenties and with no inkling of life-threatening or disabling medical conditions?

I am horrified that this murder is going to be permitted to take place. I think Judge Greer should be sued for death by a cruel and unusual means;one that he would not impose on the worst criminal in our prison system. Where are all the Wwmens rights groups? Why are they not standing up for this powerless woman?If Terri were a pet dog, PETA and all the animal rights groups would be up in arms. If Terri were a tree, the enviromental protection activists would chain themselves to her in protest.If Terri were a terrorist, the Civil Liberty Union would stand up for her rights. Is it just disabled, caucasian, Christian women that are at risk in our country? May God help us all. Marian Gaynor

Forget about amnesty international. They are only interested in protecting child murderers,
serial killers and others such as those that killed 3000+ people on 911. They have no interest in protecting the rights of an innocent woman who is about to undergo a form of lethal punishment we cannot even impose of convicted murderers.
