My suggestion is to prepare a divorce petition for Terri Schiavo and challenge her to make her "X". If she is sufficiently sentient to understand that this is the only way to save her life, we can assume she'll try her best. If she succeeds, she has an argument to make in court. If she fails, then her husband's position that she is not sentient is correct. Let her prove she wants to live!
Update 3/26/05 1:33 AM - It seems the judicial string is played out, unless there is compelling physical evidence that Terri Schiavo wants to live. I hope they try to get her to sign her name and then take the evidence before a judge. If she succeeds, we can rejoice. If she fails, then we can take comfort that her sacrifice will help others in the future. So just as we accept losses of our military men & women in Iraq for a future good, we will accept the loss of Terri. Already, she has made a difference. So whatever happens, Godspeed - Terri Schiavo!
