Because Satan's most intense activity occurs at the most sacred times.
I have waited to reply because this needed to really sink in.
Thanks and accept my sympathies as well
I don't know anyone who always rejects the removal of a feeding tube. They object in this case because of the facts surrounding the case, particularly the discrepancy between the husband's report of the wife's desires before the lawsuit and his report of the wife's desires after the lawsuit.
The family says she would not voice a desire to be terminated in such a manner.
Prior to the lawsuit the husband presented her case as one in which he claimed damages just so he could continue her care. His argument, if effect, was that she wanted to continue living in that manner.
After the lawsuit, he suspiciously remembered that she wanted to die in such a situation, but in some unguarded moments he has slipped and indicated he doesn't know what she would have wanted.
For me, it's a simple thing. Give a full hearing that includes a review of all old and all new evidence. Give the girl a chance to recover.
Finally, don't pretend it's a natural death when you forcibly prevent natural feeding.
Yes, we've been lied to. I think most of us understood that. The underlying motive is what I can't quite fathom. Why does the left want so desperately for her to die? The only answer that presents itself plainly is that the blue staters want symbolic revenge for the election.
BTW, Terri's health isn't the only thing that has passed the point of no return. This public lynching is THE low point in 21st Century American morality.
Spend some time reading liberal rags or listening to the liberal spokesman who loves men, barney franks etcetera and it will become obvious to you. The liberals consider this a 'privacy' issue --ANYTHING is okay because it is private --murder, euthanasia, suicide, sodomy, abortion etcetera etcetera... How dare the government keep Terri alive when this is a delicate and private family matter within the sanctity of marriage blah blah /sarcasm off
For me, it's a simple thing. Give a full hearing that includes a review of all old and all new evidence.
So, tell me, under your theory of jurisprudence how many full 'do-overs' does the loser in a lawsuit get? One, two, ten, as many as he wants? When would anything be decided?
Just the review of the procedure for fairness and applicable law took 5 years and 5 appellate and reviewing courts. Imagine what a couple of factual retrials would have consumed.
Let's be honest. The opponents of Terri's right to die would keep insisting on more trials and more appeals until they finally got the result (further imprisonment of Terri in that awful body) that they wanted. Then, of course, they would be satisfied that 'justice' was done.
WC: Much of the nonsense here has been supposedly aimed at the fact-finding process as to Terri's wishes. But you now admit, what I have long suspected, that you won't be satisfied until our nursing homes are filled to overflowing with breathing cadavers being pumped with slurry and having their diapers changed, notwithstanding their carefully worded living wills to the contrary, because their views don't match yours.
A: where did i admit any of this you jerk? what i said is that MS's disreputable behavior made many people who normally would not have been interested in the case pay attention.
No, what you admitted was that 'many Terri supporters' wouldn't be satisfied even if Terri had expressed her wishes in writing. It isn't about the accuracy of the determination of her wishes; it's about the fact that 'many Terri supporters' don't agree with her wishes and don't want to let her get free of the slurry and the diapers no matter what she wants.
My analysis is that we're still awaiting the first hearing of all the new evidence. In a capital case, any new evidence should generate a full review.
You don't get a 2nd chance to get it right after you kill the party involved.
If you have to ask, it won't matter, what I say. Good luck.
You say I don't "get it" - when I ask you to tell me what I "don't get" - you CAN'T TELL ME .. ROTFLOL!!
Oh my goodness!!
