From a Moral Perspective, Should Terri Schiavo's Feeding Tube Have Been Removed?

  • Yes, we have a right to die.

    It is just so sad when those on life support are kept alive even though they will never have a conscious life again. So we should not keep people on feeding tubes. Actually, not eating or drinking is one of the kindest ways to die if one is already depleted, and she should not have been made to stay alive physically and possibly in pain.

  • Terri Schiavo was Beyond Saving

    While I can understand the family's drive to save their daughter, the autopsy's results were conclusive in stating that she would not have re-entered a normal quality of life. Her brain had deteriorated beyond hope and she would have been rendered blind and incapable of normal brain function. She also specified that she did not want to live off of unnatural mechanical means and her husband respected her wishes.
