I have heard some conservative talk radio hosts compare killing Terri Schiavo, who is indeed in a persistent vegetative state as the doctors and others who looked at this case have said, to Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime during the 1930's and 1940's. They are tottally off base saying such. The politicians should not have gotten involved in the situation as this is a private matter within the family. Terri had left this life 15 years ago and that should have been the end of it. She has earned her reward. The Nazis had eliminated those that THEY had determined would not benefit in their regime. They might have even kept some of those who had limited motor skills. Terri has no motor skills. Her cerebral cortex is liquified. She has the same look all the time. It is time to let nature take its course and let her die in peace. If you want the real reason why Terri should die, go to Neal's Nuze at boortz.com or read Neal Boortz' column at townhall.com
It continues to baffle me how the Pro-Life crowd is still using Terri Schiavo's misery to further their own political gains. Terri is in pain not because she has not eaten but rather because inside she is screaming to let her die in peace. I sympathize with the parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, in this situation but the doctors and courts have ruled, and it is likely the Supreme Court will not get involved in this as they have done so 2 or 3 times in the past. The parents should stand back and let Terri die so she can be in a better place with no pain.
