Terri Schiavo - the one-year anniversary
edit_button

Today is the one-year anniversary of the death of Terri Schiavo, who starved to death because her husband didn't love her. This is the reality that comes with euthanasia - good people die and life and death are placed in man's hands instead of God's.

Priests for Life offers the following prayer:


Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know that life is always a good,
and that it never loses its value
when it is beset by weakness or injury.
Lord, thank you for the life of Terri.
Even in her suffering and death
She revealed Your glory
and truth that life is always sacred.
As I remember Terri, I also commit myself
to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
Via Dymphna's Well

terri shiavo's husband DID love her , the way you portray your knowledge about the situation is pathetic because you do not know . She was in a vegetative state , i would not want my poor bed ridden wife to suffer . All i'm saying is , her husband loved her very much and i see where he comes from not being able to watch his wife live a sad vegetable life .

Pro-Choice on these type of matters? Then why did Terri not choose? It’s not much of a choice for someone else to allow you to die.
