Terri Schiavo: If I am in her shoes.
Lovely vegetables one of the shops in Fremantle
Brain-damaged Terri Schiavo dies on 31st March 2005
Do you think if you are in her situation you still want to live?
Mrs Schiavo collapsed after her heart stopped beating temporarily in 1990.
Court-appointed doctors had said she was in a permanent vegetative state and would not recover, but her parents had said she could.
The parents are not even doctors but maybe they think they still have faith in her. But to let her suffer like this is for years (Bed ridden). Is it humane? I wouldn't want to suffer like this and also let my loved ones suffer seeing me in a vegetative state.
Her husband Michael Schiavo's had said his wife would not have wanted to live in her current condition. Mr Schiavo's overriding concern was to give his wife "a peaceful death with dignity",
Many people will not agree with me on euthanasia "a peaceful death with dignity". But I can assure you that if you have experience an event like this in your life then you will want to ponder again. Is euthanasia/mercy killing really that "heartless cruelty"? I don't think so. You see a person really suffering (vegetable state) and even the best doctors (specialist) can't do much to help, it's a crying shame. Everyone will be like living in hell condition. Euthanasia; This is in some cases legal.
As for me I will state in my living will that if I am confirm by a pool of doctors (specialist) that I am a permanent vegetative state and would not recover I will have them pull the plug. "To suffer alone rather than to let others suffer". Imagine day in day out your loved ones seeing you in such a vegetative state. Sooner or later they will get fed up; they too have a life to live. Wouldn't it be better to go, if the time for you to go has arrive.
This is my thoughts on my life as I grow older, maybe not wiser but that life's.
