Terri Schiavo’s life on the line again

Terri Schiavo’s life on the line again

Fr. Rob reports that Michael Schiavo may remove Terri’s feeding tube as early as next Tuesday. How many times have we come this close to her death, or even closer with the tube removed for several days, before she was saved a for a little longer by a miracle. Terri’s parents are still fighting, still trying to find a way to save their daughter, even as legal avenue after legal avenue closes. Should it be so hard to prevent a living, breathing innocent person from being put to death?

I was telling Melanie the other night that if she were in Terri’s position and I was in Terri’s parents’ place, I’m not sure I would be so patient as they have been. I would have hired mercenaries to storm the nursing home and spirit her away. I can’t imagine what it must be like to see someone trying to kill your loved one and having the System help him do it.
