So I'm Fasting Today

It is Tanis Esther and I'll fast till sundown.

Terri Schiavo has been fasting since the 18th. I know a lot of people see this as a discontinuation of life support; she is really "dead" her body just doesn't know it yet. Bull.

This is murder. To do this to this woman is a slow, torturous murder.

From the blogs for Terri site comes this link to a doctor who, while in favor of disconnecting nourishment and hydration, does not feel it applies in this case, and feels that Terri may have been misdiagnosed as having PVS.

I repeat. This is murder, a slow, torturous murder.

At the very least the family should be allowed to try and feed and hydrate the woman by mouth. According to another doctor the fact that she can swallow her saliva indicates that she could swallow food.

Please, please G-d, a miracle for this woman?

What kind of world do we live in when the sick are treated as mere shells.

On the terrisfight site scroll down a bit to the third section and look at those clips.
She appears to respond. She laughs. She feels pain and joy. Because another can't imagine that as life, doesn't mean she is suffering; let at this woman's face when her mother walks in. Look at the clips. She is beaming.

She is alive.
Pray for her and do what you can.
She is alive.
