    you could create a petition to get a law put on the ballot to rule DNR's and pull the plug paper work illegal...thus preventing anyone from having the right to die as terri did

    If it is CLEAR that is what somebody wants, I have no issue with it. It was the manner in which her husband went about "remembering" that is what she "wanted" after he had already shacked up with somebody else. Would you want somebody to wait three years before granting your wishes?

    two things........if she wanted to die she should have been permitted to do so....however since there was nothing in writting....she should still be alive....and the case should not have been decided on hearsay evidence....presented by parties with and obvious conflict of interest

    We are in agreement here.

    I heard on a talkshow some guy saying that what the nurses said about him saying stuff about wanting her to die, etc. was only hearsay and cannot be considered.... well, this entire case was based on hearsay. Funny how people pick and choose the hearsay they want to.... hear!

    More like, a nut job with a cause deemed good by the "right to die'rs". I bet if you followed the money, you would find that his attorney was supported by euthenasians and abortionists.

    The attorney is a nut job as well. I was hearng some excepts from his book on spirituality in the law. I think he is seriously nuts.
