Schiavo- Pro-Life / Pro-Choice You should be ashamed

As CNN.com continues to post their updates to the GROSS tug of war over the life of Terri Schiavo I am going to say what no one else you. "TO SHAME ON ALL OF YOU!!!!"

I do not know what the answers are to her individual case. I do know that to make a permanently disabled human into a mascot for the pro-life agenda is disgusting, as well as to use another person as a pro-euthenasia sacrifice is equally as sickening to me.

I think this entire discussion is REPLUSIVE!!!

So what you're saying is nobody should have the moral courage to take a stance on anything. In this country, when a dog is hit by a car, we don't put it in a room and starve it to death to put it out of its misery. In China, when babies are unwanted, they do just that. That's the difference between good guys and bad guys. Like it or not, you're going to have to decide which one you want to be.

Lone Ranger,

To imply that I lack the moral courage to take a stand on this issue shows a clear missing of the point of the post.

The point is that to use one individual a person, created in the image of God, as a soccer ball for a "CAUSE" is wrong.

Both sides are spending tons of money of lawyers, media firms, and every other PR stunt to turn her into a martyr for their cause. Now That lacks moral courage!

If a dog is hit by a car it should be euthanized, that is not evil. That is what any person who actually loved that dog would do for it.

Yes, Terri Schiavo is not a dog, and naturally the answers are not as clear cut.

The first question is, Is it euthenasia to remove a feeding tube? The second is, are we even right to begin with when we play God and keep a person "alive" only for our own comfort?

Sir I do think it is a horrible tragedy that a man in an adulterous relationship that violates his commitment to his wife every day is allowed to make decisions on her behalf. Unfortunately in this day of secularism that is the world we live in.

However, I also think it is a tragedy that people on both sides of the "right to life" debate are so callous that they would exploit this woman's condition and make a complicated decision, filled with complicated questions into an oppurtunity for great air time.

I don't quite think that is what God desires his church to be spending their money and time pursuing.
