I appreciate everyones opinion concerning this topic. However, if one has not traveled that road, one does not know the hurdles and pitfalls ahead. Who gave life to this lady? I believe she came from the same source we all come from. Our creator, God.
He and only He, has the right to decide if it is time for her to join Him in His kingdom. We were all given the freedom of choice, and who's to know what Terri's choice would be if she had a voice. Is it selfish for the family to want their daughter with them? Is it selfish for them to be able to love her and hold her? Is it selfish for the husband to want to see her gone. Is she suffering?
Can we answer any of these questions? When there is suffering and all hope is gone, do we have the right to terminate life? Who are we to say that she will not get better? Doctors have been wrong so many times. They are not God. I'm just as confused as all of you are about this subject and I have no answers. All I know is that I have a grandson who has been in a coma for over 4 years now.... and he has a feeding tube and to remove it and allow him to die would, in my eyes, be very cruel and inhumane. I just had to vent my feelings. If we don't like our life and we are unhappy and hurting, do we have a right to end it?
Love and peace, Maggie
