So Terri Schiavo remains very much with us. Polls show that most people believe that her dehydration was just and proper because she was so impaired. But perhaps our inner voice, the part of us that never lies, sees it differently. Perhaps the reason Terri Schiavo comes so quickly to mind whenever we hear stories about “miraculous” awakenings, is that we remain profoundly disturbed by what we did to her, haunted it would seem, by her beautifully smiling face.

We should be haunted, because her murder is just a glimpse of what will come under Obamacare.

Her end was nothing but murder, pure and simple. It's coming to us all now with the decisions about who will be given care coming from nameless bureaucrats. Satan is dancing with delight over the passage of this bill - Reid, Pelosi and Obama are nothing more than his mouthpieces, and the rest of the Democrat Party is in lockstep with them.

What ultimately killed murdered Terri Schiavo was Jeb Bush's inability to take a moral stand as Governor of Florida. Cowardice killed Terri.

The Terry Schiavo story was the first time that I began to realize that there is something terribly, terribly wrong going on in this country.

We are supposed to defend and help those who cannot help themselves, not murder them by starvation and dehydration. This woman was made to suffer.

I hope that anyone that was personally involved in what was done to her burns in Hell for eternity, because that is what they deserve.

Terri Schiavo isn't the story we have to be worried about.

Anne Frank is the story we have to be worried about.

her autopsy stated that the condition of her brain was consistent with either PVS or minimal consciousness

This isn't true. Such a determination can only be made on a living brain. And the doctor that did the autopsy stated as much. What he did say was that there was damage. I still get steamed by writers that misstate what was said.

Polls show that most people believe that her dehydration was just and proper

Because they weren't told the truth.

The thing that gets me is she had a feeding tube because she would silently aspirate food into her lungs if she ate by mouth...so the husband finally decided (because she was not ‘with it’) to cut the tube and let her starve to death?

Man, wouldn’t it be better to let the girl eat and die at least hydrated and feeling full?

Look, Terry Shiavo’s murderers just want the power of life and death and they don’t care about these arguments. The only thing that will protect the sanctity of life in the future is power. That power can come by the ballot. but when a majority are against life, it must come by force or it won’t come because it is too easy for most to just let the murderers go about their business. At every level when votes went against Terry’s life, those who could have stood in the way meekly stepped aside and that was a disgrace. Votes for murder are not to be respected.

The people who literally 'pulled the plug' are not haunted. And yes, agree; we have much to fear given Obamacare - an 'oxymoron'- if there ever was one.

The killing of Terri was a true horror story. What is likewise shocking is how many people failed to react to what was done to her.

Forty years ago today, Edwarda O'Bara fell into a diabetic coma. Her mother, Kaye, took care of her until Kay died last year. Now Edwarda's sister, Colleen, takes care of her.

Edwarda doesn't have an estranged husband to kill her, so she lives. She is loved, and she is shielded from the hatred of the bloodthirsty eugenicists.

Read about Edwarda's amazing life story here.
