Terri Schiavo Dies.

Yeah this has gotten a lot of attention...but similar to the Laci Peterson murder case, the Schiavo controversy is one of those that can be considered the "perfect case," or something like that. Just has all the elements that people want to hear about. But I'm glad it's finally over.

What a terrible way to go down though. RIP. :,-(

Why does the husband deserve condolences? This guy has his wife murdered in a slow and brutal way and he wouldn't even let Terri's parents and siblings in the room for her last moments. This guy is pure evil. I can think of a lot of things the husband deserves, condolences is not one of them.

dude, his wife has been in a hospital bed for 15 years. If you consider euthanasia murder thats a whole different debate. He said he was acting on the wishes of Terri. Ill admit the exclusion of the parents was a little weird, but people do weird stuff in those situations. Give the guy a break.

My own opinion is this:

You best go out and get yourself a document to prevent crap like this happening to you.

As for this case, I refuse to have an opinion. This is a personal matter between the man, his wife, and her family. I'm utterly disgusted with the way people have intruded themselves upon this matter. Literally, forced their way into your and my homes, Terry's hospital room and made this a circus show.

I'm not fooling myself into believing that there was a right and wrong way. I've never been in the husband's predicament, and I'm sure as hell not going to pass judgement on anyone immediately involved.

Here accident, or however she became brain dead, happened before I was born, so I don't hardly anything on the topic, all I know is this is what the Wisconsin State Journal read on the front page:
''The real Terri Schiavo died 15 years ago, not Thursday.''

Yeah, I agree with Aww on that. I also agree that if nothing is in writing formally, then the presumption would be to live and not die. But I am jsut stating my opinion.

As a married guy here, this poses something that couples need to consider moreso now than ever really. No one knows when tragedy may strike. We did our wills and stuff a few years ago, and glad we won't have anything like this to deal with.

I also think the husband shouldn't be cut too much slack. He seems to have about gotten everything he has wanted to far.

Yes it is too bad that something this personal made such a giant story.. alll these media people didn't care about the moral issues they just wanted a story ! That is what pisses me off..

May she RIP and may all of her family have peace too

Yeah, the wife and I did ours as well and clearly spelled out to each other as well as on paper about what our wishes were. I've seen this type of thing happen in person before which prompted us to control and spell out what we wanted. I strongly recommend to anyone that is married to do the same thing, not for you but for your family so that this terrible burden never falls on them.

I said "and this is what happens" because her husband said that she wanted the tube removed even though there wasn't enough proof stating that is was true. she actually didn't want it removed, she just wanted a divorce. Now she had to die when she really didn't want to die.

Can you prove that statement? NO ONE knows what she wanted, except for Terri. We can't really go on anyone's word. Not the husband, not the parents, not the brother. The only person who could have said what she wanted was Terri herself.
