When I first heard about Terry Schaivo, I was horrified that her husband wanted to starve her to death.
Then, I read the links posted here and realized that Terri has no cerebral cortex left. Her consciousness, her sense of self, is essentially gone.
Her husband’s appearance on Larry King Live on CNN was the first time he’s spoken publicly about this.
I thought he came across as a man who loves his wife, and realizes it’s time to let go. It’s obvious there’s no love lost between him and his in-laws.
It was the first I’d heard that Terri was bulimic, and this may have lead to her potassium imbalance. Is it possible for a bulimic to hide their condition from their loved ones?
I was suprised to hear that Gov. Bush had met with the Schindlers several times, but did not meet with Schiavo. Shouldn’t you get all sides of the story?
That revelation at the end, that Terri’s father did not report the offer of a felon to contract kill Michael, was very surprising.
Any thoughts? I’d rather this didn’t turn into a debate on the morality of right to die vs. right to life, but rather a discussion on how Michael came across. Did he change anyone’s mind?
