Terri's case demonstrates that justice isn't a major goal of the American judicial system.
“In short, Terri was not dying.”
And that right there is the heart of the problem.
Her husband was losing patience and decided to kill her.
The Republican Party insiders with the National Right To Life Committee totally focused on abortion, not broader life issues.
They did the Karl Rove thing with emotional issues like partial birth abortion, abortion funding, abortions for minors.
Money got raised for NRL and voter guides pointed people to support insider politicians who voted for the emotional legislation that didn’t overturn Roe vs. Wade.
Terri Schaivo led them to pass phony legislation in Congress to look good.
In Florida Jeb Bush should have done a whole lot more to save her life and if he wasn’t willing his brother W should have stepped in.
JFK sent federal marshals to Alabama in 1961 to protect freedom rider civil rights protestors under attack from racist mobs. He did it because the state of Alabama wouldn’t.
Terri Schiavo deserved that much......
Those 3 men are monsters that Terri became a victim of. I hope they roast in hell for eternity for the crime they committed.
Killing someone by hunger and thirst, an excruciating death that takes two weeks, for the "crime" of being disabled ... that's compassionate and part of "freedom".
At this point, we should pray for the divine chastisement upon this country to be harsh and swift. The longer God delays, the higher our crimes mount, and the worse our punishment will ultimately be.
