for a woman who didn’t have to die, for a woman who was starved to death by her husband with the government’s approval, for a woman who may have been beaten to get in the shape she was in (according to one expert doctor whose word has turned around a different case).
March 31, 2005 Terri Schiavo died after 13 days of no food or water. The government forced her starvation while her parents watched and her husband hung out with his girlfriend and their child.

In this case, we did not do nothing, but what we did was not enough. I am appalled that such a thing could happen in the US. Apparently we do torture people, just not in Guantanamo Bay. And Bush had nothing to do with it. The court in Florida agreed with the estranged husband, how could he be anything less with a new girlfriend and a baby? and killed his wife.
God, don’t forgive them. Call them to account for the death on their hands. Let your vengeance be clear to the nations.
