Is Terri a person with constitutional rights?
3/23/05 | syriacus

1. Dr. Cranford said, to Hannity last night, that PVS persons have no constitutional rights.

2. Cranford has said that Terri is PVS

Question:
Does Terri have the constitutional right to ask to be starved to death?

If the people who want to kill Terri think she has no rights,

and

if the people who want her to live think she does have rights

Then

Which group can represent her rights?

He has also written that people with Alzheimer's have no constitutional rights. He would have made a nice little Nazi.

Hannity did a most excellent job at flushing this guy out and exposing him as a 'kill the useless feeders' advocate.

So anyone know why Greer decided this guy was the only doctor whose testimony was worth considering?

Probably because he wasn't interested in any other result.

She does have rights, and so far the courts have upheld them.

Terri has no constitutional rights. Neither do any married women in America. That's what all of these courts who are allowing her to be starved to death are saying, anyway.

There were seven doctors who have examined Terri and diagnosed her as PVS. You know, licensed physicians that have actually examined her; unlike Hannity's brother, "one of the best radiologists in the country," I'm sure.

Remind me what motivation causes people to work in the "healing" professions. I think it's the same one that causes spouses to be beaten, and dogs to be kicked.

She does but according to the courts she allowed for this to happen by confirming it to her husband.

A "Right" is something a group of like minded people will war to acquire for themselves and their group.
They'll retain that "Right" only as long as they are willing to use force.

"Rights" are not easy or cheap.

The only one I've seen named is Dr. Crawford, the longtime euthanasia activist. Do you know the names of any of the others?

Your right. If any doctor has any questions regarding treatment for a patient he should: ignore state law; disregard the spouse; ignore the vast majority of expertise and empirical data from his field; petition you and Sean Hannity and his brother-in-law for treatment advice and get Congress involved.

Including Cranford, who said she has no rights.

I have another question

If
Terri can't think
and
Terri can't feel
Then
Why are Michael and Felos saying no one would want to live in such a miserable way?

The Constitution does not say that its laws are only for those deemed physically and mentally fit. It would have been a much lesser document if it had.

The "doctor" is deluded and deranged.

No, I don't have their names. But all professional opinions have been part of the eight years of litigation--due process denied, indeed--and part of the consideration of the three guardians ad litem that have been appointed and all come to the same conclusions.

Cranford the quack examined her 45 minutes only and he was totally ridiculed onHannity. Hammesfahr examined her for 10 hours and does not believe her to be PVS. Plus he did not get paid to give his opinion unlike the quack.
You seem to have trouble following this case right???
Or Even a TV show for that matter because Hannity only brought up the expertise of his brother an emminent radiologist as to the matter of an MRI test, which is a radiology field and your hero quack was tootally stumped and proven for the incompetent death driven deranged person that he is.
