Okay, go back to the Terry Schiavo case where her husband said she wanted to die and her parents said she wanted to live. Do we believe the parents who have loved her all her life or the husband who has a girlfriend and wants to remarry? Hard to be sure of anyone else's motives.
I don't expect you to have an opinion but someone else will.
Who we believe is also irrelevant. It's who was the next of kin, and so has the authority to speak for her. That was her husband. Just like it was the husband in the link YOU provided. Just like it was the husband in the Munoz case.

After 15 years, it can hardly be expected that he would want to be alone. Where is your empathy? Oh, that's right, you have none. You're a vile piece of crap. It's very clear you've never lost a spouse, that's for sure. Consider yourself lucky.

Of course my opinion is relevant. To me It has nothing to do with Mrs. Munoz, or her situation. Neither does yours.
No it isn't and it is usually a secret and a good idea to keep it to yourself.

Unfortunately for her it was her husband. Being a parent, I have empathy for them. If I put myself in their position with my daughter's life in the hands of someone ready to move on, I would have fought as hard as they did. What people do out of love is more honorable than what they do for convenience.

"You're a vile piece of crap" That is about as deep as you can get on meaningful comentary.

I do feel lucky that I don't have your brain or attitude..

I assure you, my opinion is relevant to me.

You should take your own advice though. At least I'm not advocating everyone must act according to my own personally held beliefs, like you, you control freak.

You have no empathy. Your concern is for your own feelings, not theirs. That has become increasingly clear.

Again, if you had empathy, or knew anything about the grief of losing a spouse, you'd know that 15 years is not to soon to be "ready to move on".

There was nothing to fight FOR. She was in a persistent vegetative states.

You don't have any brains. And I'm THRILLED to be nothing like you, Witless.

No my feelings are for them. It isn't up to you to decide if they should have fought. It is clear that you don't understand their pain. Feel lucky that you haven't lost a child because she was in someone's way.

OH...now it is the body that is offering life support??? What happens when the brain does not wish to go along with the plan of the body? I guess you go to a doctor and have it corrected just as when the body offers itself up to illness the brain takes it to the doctor..

You are insane and about as fanatic as one can get.

Not judging by your posts, they aren't. You're very self-centered.

"It isn't up to you to decide if they should have fought."

Where did I say that?

I know it's hard for you, Witless, but do try to pay attention to what is actually being said.

I made two points, that in Schiavo's case there was nothing to fight FOR, and that in ALL cases where there is no written directive, the next of kin has the authority to make the decision.

"It is clear that you don't understand their pain."

Of course I understand it. I never said otherwise. YOU are the one who is unable to empathize.

"Feel lucky that you haven't lost a child because she was in someone's way."

Neither did they.

Of course. When have I ever indicated otherwise?

YOU are the one who has a problem understanding that the same holds true for YOU.....YOUR opinion is relevant solely to you.

No one else is obligated to agree with, or live by, EITHER of our opinions.

Damn, you're dumb.

Again YOU are deciding that they had nothing to fight for. They saw it differently. The next of kin had a conflict of interests. They did in fact lose their child due to someone else's need to be rid of her.

If a woman is pregnant, she decides how much, if any, consideration is given to the fetus. Organ donation is not the same as gestation.

When women get pregnant their are two lives to consider. If Mrs Munoz was pro choice then she was probably an organ donor too.

Munoz didn't offer anything. The hospital and state took away her right to NOT kep her body alive..

<quoted text> So let me get this straight,you think that you're heroic for being kept alive to save a strangers life but it was barbaric for a woman who offered life support for her developing child, to be kept temporarily alive?
FTR, being an organ donor doesn't erase the fact that you discriminate against other humans while supporting killing them merely due to the fact that mom doesn't want them.
Suppose Susan Smith was an organ donor. Does that change her evilness? Dr Kermit Gosnell too. Was he not evil?

Try to get your facts straight. Her parents never discussed it with her; her husband did. The parents were also batguano insane. The husband didn't get a girlfriend until well after the battle between him and her parents began.

That would include Terry's father, who was for keeping her body on support.

Don't worry - we maintain egalitarianism in that regard, by not taking your word for anything, either.

Wrong. I'm not deciding anything. Her persistent vegetative state did that.

No, he did not have a conflict of interest. As her husband he WAS the next of kin. Not her parents. She was an adult married woman, they no longer had a say.

No, they did not lose her for that reason. They had lost her years before. Why would any loving parent wish for their daughter to persist in that condition year after year after year after year?

She forgot about him, in her rush to scold women for not subsuming ourselves to men's opinions....when in reality, when it comes to Mr. Munoz and his wife's father, she'd prefer the courts to have continued to ignore their opinions, because they don't fall in line with her own.

Hypocrisy is her middle name.
