The Terri Schiavo Story

Thank you so much for sharing this story. As a person who feels that i would not have wanted to live this way i am so sad to see how this whole thing played out. I have told my family and my parents that i would never want heroic measures done to keep me alive. Now yes i would want them to do what they could but i would never want to be on life support or in a vegitative state.

But i feel since terri was already living this life and her parents were taking care of her, i don't think that starving a person should ever be done. I don't understand why her husband just didn't get a divorce and go on his way and let her family take care of her. Those decisions about life had already been decided. If he didn't want her to be alive why did he let them keep her going from the very beginning.

Sorry this whole thing just bothers me. I think people should always talk to family and parents to let them know exactly what they want to be done in case of something like this. And i would hope that most families would do what you wanted.
