americans have an inherent problem with the DELIBERATE use of words.
for example, people say that this woman in a VEGETATIVE STATE should not be allowed to have her feeding tube removed, because that would be STARVING HER TO DEATH. ok, well... you can't starve a vegetable, can you? dumbasses. (not to mention thay she would be given a morphine drip)
and people think that the husband wants to "kill" her. and that the parents should be allowed to take over the life support costs, and keep terry schiavo alive as long as they want.
ok... the husband is fighting for what TERRY WANTED. who knew her better at the time of her accident? her husband or her parents? i bet her husband knew more about the person she was, and the personal and private wishes. Private wishes that she confided with the man she loved and was married to.
i don't want to hear any arguements about the how mebbe that WASN'T what terry wanted. because a court ruled that it was. her husband, her friends, all vouched that she indeed would never want to survive by artificial means, and the judged agreed, and so now it's a LEGAL FACT that terry wanted to be taken off life support in a a situation like this... so congress, and terry's parents, and anyone else who has fuckall to say about this shit should stop and think about ONE THING...
now in america, there is no respect for anything sacred anymore (if there ever was, i don't know.) and now, a person's dying wishes mean nothing to no one.
i hope when i die, or when im dying... someone who loves me has teh sense enough to drag my rotting carcass across a border.
if the united states had it's way, i'd be a zombie on a feeding tube...
perhaps the whole issue behind this is that the republicans are banking on a plan to keep vegetative humans barely alive, so that they can manipulate the voter registry. i mean... who knows?
and where do we draw the line? what if i want my ashes poured into the ocean when i die, and everyone knows it, BUTTTTTT my family thinks it would be better for me to have an open casket. who gets what they want? what happened to honoring the dying and the dead?
i think what they are doing to this woman is cruel. let her die already.
