The husband did not have his wife’s best interest at stake. He wanted to have some of the insurance settlement left over and had already left his wife (who was bedridden) for another woman.

I’m half expecting an executive order to exhume Terri Schiavo so they can kill her again, just to be sure she’s really dead.

Actually the second for me, Roe being the first, Terri was entirely predictable, and I predicted it, just didn't think it would take this long. Much worse is coming soon.

It made my heart physically hurt when I read that. Next he should appoint the lawyers of that guy in San Diego who raped and murdered that little girl. The guy confessed to his lawyers that he did it but they went ahead and defended him like he was innocent and even tried to blame the parents (who were partly to blame, by the way)

I knew that Obama was a bad man but he’s showing himself to be truly evil. The Culture of Death is spreading. How can we expect God to look on our nation favorably when our highest elected officials embrace such wickedness?

This must be a truly difficult day for Terri’s family. I’ll say a prayer for them.

Not unless the people repent. Those who voted for him at my job are still unbelievably giddy about him. He is a total con, and this appointment is a foreshadow of the death to come to the innocent. A total abomination.

You are right. Roe was the real landmark of barbarism.

Maybe what made Terri Schiavo’s case so stark was that instead of an invisible murder carried out in a womb, we saw a living adult human being deliberately being starved to death under specific judicial sanction. It came home to me that none of us is safe.

The reason we are now living in the USSA is because the GOP adheres to the rule of law and the socialists don’t, AND GET AWAY WITH IT EVERY TIME, because their allies in the press control the message.

Of course Bush stood around like a fool while Terri Schiavo starved to death because he didn’t want to upset the “rule of law”.

The law is whatever those in power choose it to be.

The left understands that fully.

“because their allies in the press control the message.”

I realize it is such a daily observation here that it becomes cliche, but it needs to be repeated - for most of america, the network and print media CONTROL THE MESSAGE.

They control the amount of coverage any topic or person gets, the slant/bias given to it, they can elevate a literal nobody to the level of presidential nominee (and actually elect him) while elevating an opposing candidate whose unpopularity in his own party was probably his biggest draw for them.

They can also just ignore someone, or only report on them in a negative or deprecating way (ron paul? his coverage was abysmal.) They could have won him the gop nomination if they had so wanted, I bet, such is their influence over public opinion.

Why is the GOP timid and the DNC brazen in so many categories? Because the GOP members know they will probably be crucified publicly, and the DNC know the item will not be widely reported if at all outside of talk radio.

Unfortunately, they control congress and the white house in 2 weeks, there are literally trillions of dollars to be stolen from the treasury this year, and this is their hour.

Dr Gupta is actually a board certified neurosurgeon (practicing) who is also an assistant prof at emory university and was an associate chief of nuerosurgery at an atlanta hospital. He is no “TV doc”. I am not sure if he will make a good surgeon general or not. I dont know why he would even consider such a beuracratic govt job when he can practice what he trained for and is purportedly very good at.

...because the good surgeon wants a shot at making policy, not actually helping people.

I read a prophecy someone gave (I don’t recall who) that if Terri were allowed to die, that we would have a spirit of death come upon our country and that many, many more deaths would take place due to violence, attacks on our country, etc. I pray not, but it looks like it’s coming to pass. God hates seeing the innocent slaughtered and will not stand for it.

And especially those Christians who should have known better and voted for him. Three of my born again classmates whom I love voted for this animal. I spoke up to one of them and I’m afraid I may have lost his friendship. How can a Christian vote for death?
