Scenario: A woman who has been on a feeding machine for 13 years. She is, according to most doctors, in vegetative state. While she does random smiles and other show of emotion they are just that, random--according to many doctors. In the Red Corner: Her husband who has won the case in court to pull the feeding tube in which his wife would eventually die because she can't sustain living without feeding help. His argument: She mentioned to him that she would rather die than be a vegetable. He has tried for a long time to get research the help she needed, he hoped her condition would improve but then just gave up on it and thinks that this is best for her and everyone else. In the Blue Corner: Her parents. Who do not want the husband to pull the plug. They want her to come home with them and she will be taken care of there. Their argument: She moans when the mother addresses her and they contend that she is thinking deep inside. They are so bitter towards the husband that they believe that the reason Terri is now like this is not because her heart stopped for a few moments (blood to the brain is vital) but that he, the husband, tried to strangle her. Red Herring? In the middle of all this is that Terri was awarded close to a million for malpractice suit and the Husband is contending that this is the only reason the parents want Terri to be alive and to live with them. Basically, the caretaker is the owner of the funds. What's happening with the case? The issue in Florida is that the feeding tube was turned off yesterday based on the court's decision and testimonies from many court appearances, appeals, and everything else that this case could have put forth. This case got so popular that people who support Terri, the one on life support feeding system, made a website that includes videos, letters, and everything else they can fit on the site. Where's my debate factors? Well, I was a bit surprised by a few things. First of all, I am surprised that a spouse had a bigger say in the life of a human being than her parents. I guess once you are married the de facto beneficiary, or the Grim Reaper, is the spouse. A good lesson to those that are not sure about whether they should marry that guy/gal. Secondly, I was accustomed to cases where the patient is in excruciating pain and wants to die. In this case, we do not know what Terri wanted prior or currently. Did the court do the right thing here? Should Jeb Bush intervene and throw a monkey wrench in to the court system?
