Remembering Terri Schiavo

A year ago March 18th, all means of sustenance were removed from a spirited disabled woman, as per the order of a probate judge. Armed law enforcement officers were assigned to ensure that no one could approach her with food or water. Less than two weeks later, a tortured, starving, dehydrated woman was relieved of this life and ushered into eternity, at the will of her estranged husband, and the signatory hand of a judge. Have we learned anything?

On September 11th, 2005, 11 yr. old Haleigh Poutre was admitted to the hospital, having been allegedly beaten over the head with a baseball bat, by her adoptive mother and step-father. She was found to be in a permanent vegetative state, and the Massachusetts Department of Social Services recommended she be dehydrated to death as well. The Massachusetts Supreme Court agreed.

But the Lord, in His mercy, intervened this time, allowing the nation to see the folly in declaring a person "brain dead".

Today Haleigh can eat scrambled eggs, and cream of wheat. She can indicate some of her needs and desires with her hands and fingers, and imitate rythymic patterns, all things that require the use of a brain. In short, if Haleigh's brain ever was dead, it isn't dead now.
