Thoughts on the Schiavo Case
Here are some of the issues/thoughts I have about the Schiavo case (without many conclusions or judgements):
It seems that Michael Schiavo basically gave up on his wife ever recovering from her injuries after about 2-3 years of doing all he could to rehab her.
Why would a man have legal custody over someone who he’s decided to be unfaithful to?
Something between Michael Schiavo and the Schindlers happened once the damages were awarded around 1993.
Why wouldn’t there be an autopsy? With the cremation to occur it looks like Michael Schiavo has something to hide.
Why would a judge take the word of a man who only spoke about his wife’s wishes once he seemed to take a new start in life?
There are two completely different views of Terri’s condition as of 3/26/05 (beginning day 9 of her starvation).
Why can’t someone try and feed Terri through her mouth.
If Michael Schiavo had not began a new life with another woman then I’d still respect him as Terri’s husband. He gave that up a long time ago and I don’t see why judges can’t see that.
If the Republicans were making this such a political issue then why is it mostly Democrats saying that the Republicans are playing politics, yet the polls show that this is not a winning issue for Republicans.
I am disgusted at how people are just so willing to pull the plug on someone when so many questions have been unanswered.
Randall Terry is the wrong face to attach to the Schindler’s cause. His tactics are horrible.
So many issues/questions, yet this woman is basically sentenced to die. That is something that cannot be undone.
