Poor Terri

I go to sleep. Terri Schiavo.

I wake up. Terri Schiavo.

I eat. Terri Schiavo.

I can't escape her. No matter what I do. No matter how I try to avoid it.

I believe in the "Culture of Life" and the sanctity of life. For me this is murder. For me this is Judicial Tyranny. For me this whole affair is something I'd rather not even see.

Terri's skin is pealing right now. She's bleeding. And my only hope is that they continue to give her the pain killers she's been given for years to minize the pain.

No matter what I do, I keep on getting hit with it. And then last night the media reported that the Schindlers are filing new information that suggests that Terri Schiavo tried to vocalize the words "I want to live."

Listening to commenters, one asked why the family waited 5 days to release this information. It was at that moment that I realised that I knew more than this reporter. The truth is that the lawyer had posted this information on a blog for Terry days ago. I don't have the link right know, but I distinctly remember it.

It amazing that bloggers can receive this information and absorb it faster some members of the media. But that's another story.

If Terri dies a vocal minority in US politics will no longer believe in the rule of law. This is a dangerous thing. If a small, yet significantly large enough portion of the population no longer believes that the state, and the courts will protect their rights then chaos ensues.

Any disabled relative will immediately think about kidnapping or other method to attempt to prevent their deaths in mercy killing cases, or similar cases. If the public believes that the courts have a bias, then they will no longer trust them.

People will take the law into their own hands. And that's the most dangerous thing to come out of this case.

  1. I know what you mean. I'm having a hard time accepting that this is "all for the best".

  2. Thank you for your post.


    What I am having a hard time accepting is that I know it is NOT all for the best, but still, no one could rescue her.
