No Compassion

I really don't understand the prolonged, sustained effort to murder Terry Schiavo. She has people -- her parents -- willing to care for her. Her husband is apparently the person most determined to kill her, though why his desire for her death supercedes her parent's love is beyond my poor capacity to understand.

I vary between puzzlement, sadness, and disgust at the way Terry Schiavo is treated by her husband. I am puzzled at how long he can pursue his single-minded goal. I am saddened at the ways in which the medical and legal system have been used to further the goals of one party in this case.
And I am disgusted at the resolution of this decade-long struggle.

Someone said something to the effect that now she can die with dignity. Slowly starving to death does not strike me as being a particularly dignified way to die.
