Brain-damaged Terri Schiavo dies

I haven't commented on this case because I had no desire to add to the multitude of voices already bleating about it. Now that the poor woman has finally made her journey to a place far better than this Earth, I think one comment is worth making; the fact that she was starved to death is an indication of how sick America has become, to force her to endure two weeks of hunger and thirst is quite simply disgusting and is the best testament that I can think of to a society which is dying a slow death itself. America, you should be ashamed of yourself. This is not a debate about Euthenasia it's about fucking cruelty, but then it's not suprising coming out of the country that gave us Abu Ghraib! The biggest joke is that most of those cocksuckers call themselves fucking Christians! That's very Christian, forcing someone to starve to death. America, today you make me more sick that you normally do. Shame on all of you!

Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman at the heart of a bitter legal dispute, has died, a spokesman for her parents said.

Mrs Schiavo's feeding tube was disconnected on 18 March, following a seven-year battle through the courts.

Her husband Michael Schiavo had said his wife would not have wanted to live in her current condition.

The 41-year-old's parents fought to the highest level of the US courts system to keep their daughter alive.
