The Schiavo Situation

Given recent comments and other inputs in the news I thought I'd say a little more about Mrs. Schiavo's situation.

I agree that her husband should have the final say. I agree that when her Father gave her away on her wedding day he gave those rights to her husband. I agree that her family is being selfish and trying to hold on to her when the whole world knows she will never function on any normal level. I also agree that a feeding tube is essentially life support, not just because the courts say so but because she can't live without it.

Here is my biggest issue with this situation. They are starving this woman to death. Just like I wrote in the Future Inmate Post could you imagine if we starved death row inmates to death.

I think that if the decision was made to let her die they should have simply given her a lethal injection and been done with it. Instead she has to suffer through dehydration.

What if she has all sense of feeling but cannot express it. Think about it like that for a minute. What if you took a perfectly healthy adult and tied them down and sealed their mouth and then forced them to suffer through starvation.

It just isn't humane.

So that is what I think about this.

So, go ahead all you libs and say that lethal injection is murder; I don't want to hear it. So is starving her to death. At least an injection is humane.

SlagleRock Out!
