Merciless Spouse: Terri's Saga

Written by Soulful-Writer

Terri's husband once again showedrepparttar magnitude of his cruelty when he denied her parents' and sibling's request to be by her side until her last breath. This man must be made accountable for his cruel and inhumane actions towards Terri and her family. There is absolutely no excuse for his attitude and behavior. His cruelty towards Terri and her blood relatives is unforgivable and unforgettable. Terri's story must not end here. Her husband, assisted by our judicial system, condemned her to a most horrendous death forcing her to die of starvation and thirst. That act alone was ofrepparttar 132142 outmost cruelty and evidence of his absolute lack of compassion and affection for his wife.

Even if Terri would have preferred to die than to be kept alive artificially, there was no need to subject her to such a cruel way to die. She agonized for almost two weeks bearingrepparttar 132143 pain of starvation and thirst. Certainly, it would have been more humane to have induced her into a comma so she would not have felt what she must have felt during those final days.

Michael Schiavo has gotten away with this cruel murder withrepparttar 132144 blessings ofrepparttar 132145 courts. He is certainly a monster. How much longer is our judicial system going to condone monsters like him inrepparttar 132146 name of our Constitution? How couldrepparttar 132147 courts be so blind torepparttar 132148 blatant abuse this man inflicted on his wife not just during these past few weeks but, at least since she became brain damaged? How couldrepparttar 132149 courts completely ignorerepparttar 132150 pleas of her loving parents and deny themrepparttar 132151 right to protect their daughter from this man's cruelty? The courts allowed this man to violate Terri's human and constitutional rights with impunity. He and his attorney successfully turnedrepparttar 132152 media and court's attention to a political issue,repparttar 132153 right to life, when in fact this was a clear case of domestic abuse.
