The comment made was solely based on an irrelevant poll. If you choose to sign such a thing, that's your own decision.

But you keep pushing your opinion that NO ONO would EVER choose to die by having nutrition and fluids withheld. That's what I was commenting on. You keep commenting that "she's starving to death," and no one would want that to happen to them, but you choose not to listen to people who challenge that view.

When you continuously do that, do you really expect anyone to give what you post any more consideration?

I listen to, and have listened to, the most credible of cases presented. If it's a blog site, I will question it's credibility. If the polls ask if anyone wants to be in Terri's position, I will question those as well. If it's firsthand evidence, I give credit to it. Simply my style.

Are you insinuating that I've dodged all opposing opinions by ignorance? Because I feel that all I've done is state my stance, defend it, and attentively challenge opposing viewpoints.

The young protester attempted to take a glass of water into the Woodside Hospice for the brain-damaged Terri Schiavo. A federal judge rejected a request from the parents of Schiavo to order her feeding tube reinserted, dealing a blow to attempts by the U.S. Congress and the White House to prolong her life.

Thanks for the info, but I don't consider him that much of a fanatic. How old is he, ten?

i dont really see why this is SOO blown out of proportion.. a lot of people die because they can not afford the life-support systems anymore, actually governor bush had signed a bill that legalized pulling the plug on these people, why is no one discussing that but this case is being taken all the way to the congress? selective perception is a bitch

also, the woman is in a permanent vegetative state, she will not get any better, why do all these people put all the time and effort to keep her suffering? i dont think anyone HERE would like to live in the state she is in, we would all want the plug to be pulled. she was being kept here at her own expense.

I don't believe these protesters are either.

And I think it is wrong to agitate a child to extreem behavior.

So she could choke to death on it.

I make it a point not to post on this board anymore, but I just had to come and note that it's really difficult to read statements about scientific matters made by people who don't understand science on this level.

Terri's cerebral cortex has eroded.

She is no longer with us.

It's grotesque to keep a dead body with a living soul here.

Her parents have said they would contest this even if TERRI herself had a living will specifying she did not want to live this way.

That should tell you something about these poor people's complete and utter inability to let their daughter go.
