Be Nice to Terri Schiavo

Terri Schiavo, severely disabled, has been in the news for months and months. Her poor husband Michael wants to kill her and mean people like Gov. Jeb Bush won’t let him.

The courts have now struck down “Terri’s Law,” the Florida measure that tried to restrict a husband’s right to terminate an unwanted marriage. With a little luck, she’ll be dead in no time.

My concern here, though, is not with Michael’s right to bump off his wife. I think more attention needs to be paid to the humanitarian side of things. The executioners intend to withold water until she dies of thirst. This just isn’t right. Dying of thirst is a slow and tortuous way to go. Terri is fully conscious and aware of what’s going on.

The Muslims have a much better method: saw her head off! She’ll be gone in seconds, almost no pain at all, and Michael can get on with his life. Of course, he should be awarded the privilege of dispatching her with his own hands, since he’s had to work so hard for so long to protect his rights as a husband.


  1. It is absurd what is going on in our country today!!! Not only have judges decided that homosexuals have the "right" to marry, but now, in this case, they have decided in effect that Michael may murder his wife! I wonder how much longer our society can remain free when we ignore the words of the Father of our Country: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to POLITICAL prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supporters."

    Hope you and yours are doing well.
