Morality - Cruel and unusual Punishment for Terri Schiavo
Life Site News has a note about a judge breaking the law in order to get Terri Schiavo's feeding tube removed.
For those who don't know, Terri has been semi/comatose for 15 years. The only support she requires is a feeding tube, and there are people (her parents) wanting to look after her. Her husband however, wants her to starve to death.
The judge in the case has just ignored a congressional subpeona and had the tube removed. So now Terri Schiavo will starve to death, unless someone intervenes.
If you starve to death a criminal or prisoner of war, you would be brought up on serious charges, but apparently, if you starve to death your sick wife, it is all okay.
This is just another example of the 'slippery slope' when you start letting people decide how valuable another persons life is...
Apparently, the LA Times is trying to say that Starvation is not unpleasant
"This is not a cruel procedure," Goldstein said. "It is unlikely that [she] will feel pain in any way that we as sapient people will identify. Many family members think it is a very comforting procedure
Of course, if you read the Account of Kate Adamson who went through the same thing, perhaps you might think that the LA Times is, how do you say, full of it?
