If Terri Schiavo Dies...Topics: News
Before Terri Schiavo dies of starvation and thirst, there are two questions that must be answered.
1. Even if we were to concede, for the sake of argument, that this woman is irreversibly and totally vegetative, what possible objection can there be to her parents assuming custody of her and, at their own expense, taking care of her?
2. Are the members of the United States Congress so faint-hearted, feeble, and foolish that the best they can do is to get another judge involved in this case?
There must be thousands of Americans today in medically hopeless condition. Are they all to be killed? If not, are we to spare some and kill the others?
No one has made a compelling argument as to why Mrs. Schiavo must be killed. Instead, all we have is an unproven, unproveable assertion by her husband that she told him, years ago, that she would want it so. No one else heard her say this. Because the assertion cannot be proved, it has no business being in the argument.
Why should her parents not take care of her? There is simply no reasonable answer to that question.
