Terri Schiavo...be her voice
I was so saddened to hear that Terri Schiavo's nutrition and hydration has now been witheld from her. Especially since she is not a vegetable. How could a judge let this happen? She is alive, alert and I saw the video clips myself, she smiled, when you smile, you are happy within. She tried to communicate, so the fact that she is being starved and dehydrated now as we sit here, is so sad.
Terri's husband Michael Schiavo had the choice, whether to let her keep on with her treatment or not, and he chose to stop the treatment, he has moved on with his life and has a woman and children and will marry after Terri dies, her parents asked him to sign Terri's rights to them and he wouldnt, why??
Michael Schiavo claims he found his wife Terri on the floor when she fell into the coma, the cause of her state now is unknown, except for the fact that oxegen was not getting to her brain for a long time, which was the cause of her brain damage, I don't want to accuse, but I wonder why he didnt have the heart to let his wife be cared for by her parents.
My heart goes out to Terri and her family, my prayers are with them and I am just in schock about the system and to think that she must be thirsting and hungry thanks to Michael Schiavo.
terrisfight.org and support her cause any way that you can, offering kind words, prayers or just anything you can think of, or at least give your self the knowlege of her complete story.
