SAVE TERRY SCHIAVO
The young Florida woman described as in a Persistent Vegetative State, shouldn’t have medical decisions made for her by her husband, who has asked his live-in lover, the mother of his two children, to marry him when Ms. Schiavo dies…and he wants to withdraw her feeding tube, causing her death. He’s in a conflict-of-interest. The Florida courts should empower her parents to make these decisions. I’ve read they hope to care for her as long as she or they live, if necessary. If Ms. Schiavo could be spoon-fed, few would say she should die; TPN is just one step away from that. She is her parents’ disabled child.
Oh, that’s right, offing the Disabled is now fashionable, since Million Dollar Baby won all those Oscars….
