This case does have little to do with how we euthenize animals..but as I said above...I can see the pro death people using this case as an example of why we should allow physician assisted suicide, ESPECIALLY if it is deemed that Ms. Shiavo experienced pain or discomfort while she was allowed to starve to death. I can hear them say that none of her pain would have happened if her husband and doctor had been given another legal out to end her life humanly, since they determined that she had no quality of life. My feeling is, where does it end??? I have no problem with the tubes being taken out when a person is in a deep coma and MRI's show that the brain is destroyed and the person will never wake up. The line in this case is very gray, however. The experts disagree. This sets a bad presidence. Will it only be a matter of time before children born with severe downs sydrome or other abnormalities or elderly who other's feel have passed their usefulness be done away with? I think that President Bush's sentiments on the topic are very appropriate here (not a direct quote), he said that in matters such as these, it is best to err on the side of life. I couldn't agree more.
