Subject: Terri's Fight

This is just so utterly wrong and disgusting. If Terri's still alive, well and not threatening anybody's health, why would you starve them?

It's basically euthanasia taken to a higher level. Terri should be able to live.

If you feel the same way, PLEASE let other people know about this.

(note to people reading this journal who think that I haven't been updating recently - the vast majority of my journal is friends-only. I'm posting this as a public entry because it's so important.)

According to the husband, he is acting in accordance with Terri's wishes. Every court that has heard the case has agreed with this.

I don't know what the exact situation is, but the site you linked to is highly emotive and prejudicial. Personally, I don't see the harm in allowing people to die, if that's what they want to do. Certainly, I'd be wary of supporting a group bearing banners comparing the hospital to Auschwitz.

I just hope that Terri's wishes (whatever they might actually be) are heeded.

I didn't realise that it was Terri's wish not to be kept alive. I guess I didn't read the whole case properly.

I'm still not certain, but, eh. Still, not allowing the family to stay with her is a bit much.
