The bottom line in the Schiavo case is that no one really knows what Terri's wishes are or were. You have a husband who at the very least has motives for wanting her out of the picture. You have a judge so throughly convinced of her wishes it makes one wonder how he could possibly be so sure about anything. And you have a loving family who wants more than anything to keep her alive. The families thinking and motives are clear; Let us take care of her, let us try and rehabilitate her, who knows what miracle might manifest itself.
CLEARWATER, FL., March 14, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On Saturday a rally of over three-hundred of Terri Schiavo’s most die-hard supporters heard the first-hand account of the sufferings and remarkable recovery of Kate Adamson. Struck down in 1995 at the age of thirty-three by a rare double brainstem stroke, Kate, then a mother of two young girls, was completely paralyzed; she was unable even to blink her eyes. Like Terri Shiavo, the medical staff treating her questioned the merit of continuing granting Kate the most basic human right of food and water.
When no one can possibly know for sure, must we not always error in favor of life? Judge Greer may be operating in good faith, but his inflexible often dictatorial rulings show a rigid self certainess reserved only for God or someone with a God complex.
