Let Terri die

For God’s sake, let Terri Schiavo die.

To her parents: Let go. Your daughter is a grown woman who told her husband she did not want to be kept alive on life support. Honor her life and wishes by allowing her to die as she wished.

To the elected officials who have used the Schiavo tragedy as a political opportunity: Shame on you. Your callous manipulation of this issue is a new low in the already tarnished history of American politics.

To the so-called right-to-lifers: Drop it. Your heartless use of Terri Schiavo as a poster girl to your cause showcases your lack of humanity and insincerity.

To the media: Stop turning this into a typical cable news network circus. Turn the cameras off and most of the demonstrators will go home. This is a media event because you choose to make it so.

It’s over. The lame attempts by the President of the United States and Congress to circumvent the law failed. The courts have spoken. Terri Schiavo has spoken.

Let her die. It’s the only decent thing left to do.
