"If the government can kill you, you have no true liberty."

If the government can force the artificial prolonging of life, based upon the religious beliefs of others, you have no true liberty.

Also, in this case the government killed no one. The closest family member decided to stop the artificial prolonging of life which had dragged on for several years.

So, food and water are "artificial life support"?

You mean the estranged and probably abusive husband who decided to starve and dehydrate Terri so he could spend Terri's money on his girlfriend and the illegitimate children they had together?

Nice try ... the ‘closest family member’ was living with and raising a child with another female yet the Florida greerghoul refused to remove the adulterous husband from control over Terri’s life. You strike me as the type who thinks that’s just peachy. Says a lot about you and nothing about the case you fail to comprehend.

Actually the government helped hold Terri still so she could be killed. They helped a lot with a complicit judge and police and SWAT teams so she could die according to the judge's order.

Meanwhile, I just finished my own artificial life support, a sandwich, which included a drink of water. The LE's guarding Terri at that time did not allow her a drop, not one drop of water for that thirteen days.

Glad you brought this up. Maybe some new visitors will find out what really happened. The "closest family member" wanted her dead many years ago, just kept at it until with help from friends he could get the job done.

My mother had the same argument, and my husband agreed with it. I told them both that if the only things keeping me alive were food and water (like right now), they'd better not decide that I don't need 'em.

Oh he stopped it alright...MS had medical therapy to Terri suspended once he got his $$ medical settlement...she possibly could have learned to swallow on her own with therapy that MS purposely withheld along with other abuses to her. With 'closest family' like this who needs enemies.

And the end result was that an innocent woman was MURDERED and any of these candidates would allow it to happen again.

This isn't just an opinion, it is a complete misrepresentation of the facts. Theresa Marie Schiavo was not sustained by "life support." She was physically incapable of feeding herself.

I invite you to learn to observe, think, and draw your own conclusions, instead of adopting the media line of choice. It's hard work, but you'll be a much better citizen. America is home to enough parrots already.
