A Note to The Esteemed United States Congress on the Case of Terri Schiavo

Can’t you CORPSE-FUCKERS just leave this poor woman alone to die already? Without trying to squeeze your own jollies out of her before she goes?

Also interesting that for conservatives it’s “torture” when you remove the feeding tube for a woman with no consciousness, but “harmless pranks” when you beat a conscious Iraqi.
Pretty much sums up their views on race.

I really don’t know how I feel about Terri’s life, but I am concerned about the motives of the husband. If the majority of her family wants her around and are willing to care for her, why not just walk away?
From what I understand he’s living with another woman anyway (which is understandable, but it shows he’s obviously moved on). Maybe he is hoping she will expire before a term-life policy does? What is his motivation?

“What is his motivation?”
I dunno, maybe it has something to do with not wanting to see the remains of a woman he loved and who was an important part of his life — who is dead and gone and never coming back, no matter whether she’s on the tube or not — kept in a Creepshow pseudo-animate state so people can play with them like a fucking rag doll and pat each other on the back about how “concerned about life” they are?
Why is that so hard to comprehend?

I don’t know what Mr. Schiavo’s motivations are, and I don’t care. He’s her husband, hundreds of years of common law say legally they are the same person, and he has absolute control over her fate. Every single state and federal court that has heard this case has found for Mr. Schiavo for these reasons. That’s what the whole sanctity of marriage thing is supposed to be about. Remember how concerned we all were about the sanctity of marriage until a republican led congress tried to undermine it last weekend. On issues like gay marriage, abortion, and the death penalty, I might have not agreed with the politics of the religious right, but I felt, and still do feel, that they were correct on the law. In this case, I have great misgivings about what’s going on with Ms. Schiavo, but its not my decision, its her husband’s, and for congress to interfere with that decision (even if it is moraly wrong) is an abomination of the law.

Two thumbs up on what Joe said.
It’s funny how “sacred” marriage was until Bill Frist decided to run for President…
