    Terri has been essentially dead for some time know.

    Twenty percent remaining brain tissue, a heart beat, meaningless responses to stimuli, with no chance for improvement, does not make for a life.

    If I were Terri, I would have wanted my spouse to end my life years ago.

    Time to get out the video camera and invite multiple witnesses for the taping of me completing a Living Will, Advanced Directive, and Durable Power of Attorney regarding health care. Make sure you get everyone on tape. Then, make multiple copies of the video tape and the documents.

      Your opinion. Not the opinion of many others.

      I don't believe what you stand for makes a life. Can I starve you to death?

      You have no way of knowing that.

      You don't have a clue what the future of indigent care technology is going to bring to the world. If you follow through with those plans, you are a fool.

        WA,
        You should not call someone a fool for having an opinion. It's wrong, just as I was wrong for calling Terri's parents sick people. I'm sorry for what I said. Now you should apologize to Skeptic.

        You should state your opinion, but dont' insult people.

          I didn't call Skeptic a fool for having an opinion. In fact, I ddin't call him a fool at all. I told him if he followed through with his plan then he would be a fool. I would consider him a fool not for his opinion, but for his actions.

                  The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

                    I'm new around here, but I'm wading in anyway, simply because it seems so few actually understand the American system of government and the United States Constitution.

                    Firstly, I'd like to address the concept here of "judicial tyranny". The truth in this matter, despite the situation with Mrs. Schiavo, is that it was an unconscionable violation of our own Constitutional Process that Congress, the Senate, and the President got involved. Their attempts to circumvent the courts is in direct violation of the Three-Part system established in the Constitution.

                    The Legislative branch (Congress and the Senate) writes laws, the Executive Branch (the President) enforces the laws, and the Judicial branch (the courts) interpret the laws.

                    The Constitution's establishment of a three-part government was made so that no one branch of government could become too powerful. It is a system of checks and balances that was created to ensure that the governemnt of the country could not be powerful enough to turn into a despotism or tyranical regime (such as the card I have seen played so very often here - Nazi Germany. And really, it's a card played so often it's like there's whole decks with just the one. Give the Nazi cry a rest. People who demand that their beliefs be forced onto others are the fascists. I encourage you to consult a dictionary and thesaurus for definitions and synonyms.).

                    Before going off about tyrranies and despotic groups of people, I suggest one actually reads the Constitution. It's there for a reason, and foisting any kind of morality on the populace is not that reason. It's there to limit governmental control over the people.

                        Hey Skeptic-
                        Would you want your wife to be engaged to another man and have children with him too? Would you trust her if she couldn't honor her marriage vows? Remember those? For better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health until DEATH DO YOU PART?

                        Any one who believes this man is "devoted" to his wife is a

                          I should have no knowledge of the case at all!!!! It's a private, family matter!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's my point.
                          I agree. There no hope for her or her family as long as she is being kept breathing. From what I hear her husband stood by her side for a long time. Any money he got paid her bills. His life has been on hold for 15 years. On the other side, parents see hope where there is none. They do not wish to accept what is happening. We are in no position to judge. And it is not a issue to play politics with. It's time to let God take her and get on with life. Then they all can start over again.

                          Joh 4:23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

                            Really? How do you father 2 children by a different woman with your life on hold?

                              He shacked up with another woman and had 2 kids by her.

                              Oh yeah, his life is really "on hold".

                                I can think of two people off the top of my head that are going to truthsmack back into reality for this statement. Would you like a soda?
