    I do agree with Liz, though. Congress needs to step out of it.

    The Terri Schiavo story should NOT have anything to do with the Rally. If ESCs have nothing to do with the rally than what would this accomplish?

    I'm with Vike. I hope that if I was in her position my family would let me go. Living wills are a damn good idea.

    amazing how you pro-sciavo death ppl play both sides.
    1. she feels no pain, she is brain dead.
    2. she is suffering.

    DA...but her soul is still trapped inside...jmo

    she is still suffering, I know that I would never want to live like that...

    what is her condition as far as life support? vent? feeding tube? what else? brain activity?

    She is being used like a PAWN. how would you like that for yourself; given the situation she looses EITHER way, be it her family or her government!!!

    People with disabilities are not PAWNS!

    She is not on life support, unless you consider nourishment life support

    Faye...if a feeding tube is NOT life support...what the hell is it?

    There was an animal called a crockagater, had two heads, one at each end and all it could do was eat and drink, and it was real mean cause it couldn't shit or pee. Actually, I learned that analogy in an electronics class when the teacher was telling us that every circuit must have an input and an output. Getting back to this, do you consider, bowel and bladder life support?

    respect the crockagater

    I dont get it? From a nation that voted "Million Dollar Baby" the best and most spectacular movie of the year and now everybody is upset over this? I am really starting to think Americans are a bunch of hipocrates, much like their President.
