First off, This is sick. If you have made a decision to 'let' a person pass on, where is the sense of having that person starve to death? A simple shot to knock her out, and then another shot to stop the heart. Very safe, very painless.
This poor lady's tribulations have been a long journey. I think someone escalated and some how got the govt. involved via 'connections'[/b]
I want to also add what has been in recent news reports (and it wasn't on FOX, it was on CNN TV)
It is possible that Michael abused her and caused her stroke. There were unexplained bruises on her body (wrists and neck) when she was rushed to the emergency room. For her to come out of her vegetative state and finger him would not be in his best interests.
Michael has not allowed her to be photographed or taken out of her room in two years.
Michael has banned the OPENING of a WINDOW in her room. She has not breathed a breath of fresh air in two years.
Does this sound like a man looking out for his wife's best interests? I'm not trying to sound extreme here, but it sounds more like a hostage (mental and physical) situation than a spouse letting his wife go.
As for the reason congress should have a say in this, how about the right of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?
