Keep in mind, too, nic, that even at the time of Terri's injury, withholding nourishment and hydration was NOT standard procedure. It just wasn't done and was NOT looked at being on par with being on a ventilator or other artificial means of life supposrt. When looked at in that light, one could clearly surmise that even IF Terri had said she wouldn't want to be kept alive "like that" she couldn't have meant by a feeding tube, because that was still illegal.

And I honestly do not think that anybody would ever say they'd rather starve to death than be kept alive by having food given to them (except for MS, Felos and other "right-to-deathers").

The fact that nutrition/hydration was not a consideration at the time of Terri's injury is CRUCIAL, sweetliberty. It seems that the Merchants of Death had to spend some time in getting the current laws in place before condemning Terri to death.

Another fine point .. it seems Judge Greer gave the okay for George Felos to act as Terri's attorney, to be paid for by her money .. in essence, she's paying him to kill her. Now that MS has to defend himself as acting in Terri's best interest, and George Felos is still on the scene, is he now Michael's attorney? Can he represent both?
