Economic Solution to Terri Schiavo?
I think we need to defer to the courts in establishing whether Terri wishes to die over living in her condition. However, if it can't be established what her wishes are, I think that so long as the burden of keeping her alive doesn't fall on unwilling parties, I don't see any problem with any party that wishes to keep her alive doing so. I suppose now that the problem is whether parties are obscuring the situation to keep her alive against her will.
Personally, I don't know what I would want and don't really care. I'm perfectly fine with leaving that decision to others should I end up incapacitated. I feel that I can't know what I would want and I am fine leaving things up to chance should the unthinkable happen.
UPDATE: dogfaceboy has a good post on Schiavo.
Good points in your post. Thanks for reading and sharing.
