More Irish views on Terri Schiavo

The Freedom Institute weighs in.
John McGuirk puts it quite succintly -
"Ok, so the American courts have decided to agree with her husband that Terri Schiavo is not worth keeping alive (Even though her husband has not visited her for 10 years, has children with another woman, and stands to gain a substantial amount in life assurance if she dies). But considering that when those same courts sentence a criminal to death, every effort is made to save them pain, why is it that Terri Schiavo must die slowly of thirst over a week, while her parents stand and watch? This is euthanasia by the back door, and Mrs. Schiavo and her family are being needlessly forced to suffer."
