Clash between Loved Ones Examining the Terry Schiavo Case

In Uncategorized on March 26, 2005 at 1:27 pm

As I look at Terry Schiavo laying in comatose unawareness; I experience various emotions. The first one is that of a mother, I think if Terry were my child I would not care that her tongue was hanging out of her mouth and her eyes were rolling out it would be enough everyday until I died to just go to her bedside and hold my daughter, my precious precious daughter.

However as an individual watching Terry I honestly would want death than to be just a staring vegetable, I would be resentful that I was on any sort of life support which caused me to just stare into space for the rest of my life. I especially would be upset that my rights to privacy were violated by whoever is allowing the media to post pictures of me all over the news with my tongue hanging out. I would think oh no that’s just not a cool way to live life. Honestly I would prefer death than having everyone see the eye roll back and the tongue hanging out. As for my mother, I suppose I would not mind being kept alive to just comfort her, but only in private. The moment my eyes and tongue were splashed across the screen I would say kill me, that’s not the way to go. I want people to remember me as talking, walking and breathing. I want my name to be associated with life, not an eye rollback.

As for the husband, you are no good. If the woman wanted custody of her daughter you should have given it to her. Why “you” want to kill her I don’t completely know? Why didn’t you just get out of the way. If it were not for you believe me it probably would have been all over by now.

Finally, instead of murdering the woman through starvation, and it is murder why don’t they just give her a lethal injection if she is in fact truly dead, for starvation is murder. Watching the Terry Schivao case is very eery to me. It almost seems to me as if we the public are being prepared to watch other atrocities. Personally for me I feel like a german watching a gas chamber execution on TV. I don’t know why I feel this way but I do. It ultimately seems as if we are being asked to choose a definition for who is worthy to be alive.

Finally mom at this point you should be fighting for an injection to just euthanize Terry Schiavo. Please someone please don’t let us murder this woman through starvation. Criminals are entitled to protection from criuel and unusual punishment but patients are not starvation is definiteky cruel and unusual.

  1. I agree with so much of what u are saying. I live in Australia and we are getting her picture as well. I believe they should let her die, but u are right there has 2 b a better way then starving her. Her mother can’t accept that her baby is gone anyway, it would be the hardest thing in the world to do, but they have to let her go, what shes doing, it isn’t living…
