Final appeal in Schiavo case

[Boston Globe — Front Page]( “WASHINGTON — The parents of Terri Schiavo, the severely brain- damaged woman who has been slowly dying since her feeding tube was removed Friday, appealed last night to the US Supreme Court to have the tube reinserted.”

Please… just let her die in peace. Nobody, and I mean nobody, has any business in what’s going on in that family except the family itself. The President… The Pope?!?!?! Please!

The Catholic church has a position on life as follows:

From the moment of conception until natural death, human life is sacred.

Let’s analyze this for a second. There are four possibilities that need discussion:
# Natural Life
# Natural Death
# Unnatural Life
# Unnatural Death

Now, in cases 1,2 and 4 I don’t think there’s much discussion. All of this is about number 3. I know, the religious right will have you think that Terri is being murdered, but the fact is that she is being kept alive in an entirely unnatural manner. There is no Terri left in Terri’s body. She’s a zombie, pure and simple, and there is nothing sacred about keeping her suffering by keeping her alive.

Let her go.
