As a socialist, I have do disagree with this blog. I do not think the government has any right looking into our bedrooms and hospital beds.

Goddess Bless.

Even if tens of nurses are willing to come forward and implicate the husband for having tried to kill his wife? Ditto for having put her in the hospital? I think we lose the right to privacy when a crime is involved.

Being a socialist has nothing to do with it.

Remember, vocabulary is everything in this war. It's not about the "right to death OR life" per se, it's about fraud. Get the word out!

Since when does the government not have a right to intervene in what is an attempt to murder.

If this had been a case where someone was really in a comatose state then I am certain that those who have sought to help this woman would not have done as much as they have.

This is not about government intervention in a private matter. That, unfortunately is what I call the party line by the team who want this woman dead, no matter what.

This ceased to be a private matter from the time that Michael Schiavo attempted to strangle his wife, then committed fraud by bringing a case based upon incomplete information about her medical condition.

This case is getting attention from around the world and the reason that it is getting that intention is a result of the implications that this judicially approved homicide will have on the lives of the vulnerable in society.

It is a travesty of justice when in the criminal court hearsay evidence, that could in fact convict a real murderer is dismissed because it is hearsay, and in a probate court under guardianship laws, a woman cannot get protection because hearsay evidence from a man who has a conflict of interest is accepted as reliable.

What is worse about this case is that any evidence that is contrary to the party line is dismissed as not being credible. Hence the real friend who on oath stated exactly how Terri felt about the subject was dismissed as unreliable and the judge accepted the testimony of the brother and sister in law of the man who wants this woman dead.

The fact that Michael was heard to say "Is the bitch dead yet" is a further indictment that truth has gone out the window in this case.

No doubt goddess bless, as a socialist you also accept the idea that it was ok for the SS to round up innocent people and put them to death. I am not talking about the Jews. I am talking about the disabled, the sick and the elderly who were murdered in gas chambers before the final solution began. No one did a thing about that situation either.

As RD knows, I am not a liberal but I support her all the way and I think that she is making a very sincere effort because she knows the difference between government interference in what is a private matter and government interference that is necessary to prevent judicially approved homicide that will have horrific consequences if it is allowed to continue to happen.

RD, I still think that you rock. Go go go.

Hi. I am the anonymous socialist.

33 state and federal judges (including some real lefties like Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas) have concluded that it is Terri Schiavo's right to die with dignity.

Hey Jeb and George: butt out, this doesn't concern you.

Almost all of the other judges ruled on the basis of procedure, not on the facts of the case.

There's the rub, and that's why the Schindlers have had an awful time in court.

Which means the guardianship system in this country needs to be reformed to prevent another outrageous case such as this one.

To RD, I am a conservative and want you to know that I support your fully - it's good to see you blogging about this very important case. I am thankful for your a "liberals for terri." I wish you could both go on Joe Scarbourough or some other talking head show to prove that it's not just the "religious right" that's up in arms about this. And I am not religious, by the way.
To Anonymous - signing as an anon person is a really chicken s@#t way of making a negative, critical comment. If you're not ashamed of your views, name yourself.

Hi, anonymous socialist here.

Terri is now resting in a peaceful state. The protestors, including her "parents," need to go home and do some inward reflection. I seriously they get grief counseling and spiritual guidance. They have not been served well through now, and have been used by people with nefarious, political motives.

Terri has moved on (15 years ago, actually). It's time her parents, and you all, moved on as well.

RIP Terri Schiavo. We've been through so much together.

Sure, she's in a "peaceful state."

How do you know?
