The Feminists stand with estranged husband, Michael Schiavo! Bonnie Erbe of PBS and Susan Estrich of CNN both support Michael’s right to starve his disabled former wife. Feminists support a husband’s right to choose Dr. Humane Death, aka Dr. Ronald Cranford, to give medical evaluation of an incapacitated woman.
Where stands NOW, the National Organization for Women? Who knows? No one has seen them standing for Terry against the male tyranny of her husband, Dr. Kevorkian’s acolytes, and the courts. No one has seen NOW standing for Terri’s female nurses and friends, who believe she should be allowed to live.
Where are defenders of women’s rights? “… it’s no one else’s business if Michael Schiavo, Terri’s husband, wants to kill her. The National Organization for Women is AWOL on this case. The American Civil Liberties Union is actually working with Michael Schiavo to end Terri’s life.”
The Martyrdom of Terri Schiavo by Father Jacobse was written while Terri was recuperating from a previous court-ordered starvation. “Terri lies mute and helpless, but nevertheless an eloquent witness for the inherent sacredness and dignity of life. Terri does not deserve to die. She recognizes and responds to life in ways entirely appropriate to her injuries.”
