Terry Schiavo has been making news recently, because she is in a Brain Damaged-Dead Coma State, subsisting on a feeding and hydration tube and has been that way for 13 years. She cannot move, talk, respond, do anything for a productive life, from what I have seen of her on TV.
Her husband had her permission, that if she is in this kind of physical condition to let her die. Her family says that even in this state, Terry would want to remain alive. The family doesn’t want to let her go, OK I can take that, but she has been in a Coma, vegetative state for 13 years, she is already dead, and will probably, most likely not come out of it. She is draining money and resources.
She was taken off of her feeding and hydrating tube, and the court allowed this, but Jeb Bush, Gov of FL, passed a law for her to be put back on her feeding and hydrating tube. She was going to have a peaceful passing - her body would have given out, probably her kidneys, or heart, but she is now having to remain suffering. Her husband, is trying to have this law made unconstitutional, as it is not her wishes.
This lady needs to be let go, let her die, it should have been done long ago, when it was medically established that she was coming out of this condition. Family, husband, friends, could have said goodbye, remember the person you knew when she was vibrant, full of life and productivity, her attributes and contributions and just let her go.
I feel very bad for Terry and her family, and husband, this has splintered them.
I don’t even want to think of all the money that has been put out for medical and legal fees, by the husband and the family.
Some people say this is a Mercy Killing, I don’t see what is wrong with that, if I because of accident, or illness become like this lady, my husband will try to save my life, but he has my permission, my wishes to be let go if I am in a state that I won’t be coming back, it will be hard to do, but I would have lived a full life and do not want to be in a Coma-like state, like Terry, especially for all the years.
