Lashawn Barber posts a message from Terry Schiavo's dad. The letter is to clarify some common misconceptions that many have regarding Terry Schiavo's condition. One key point that he makes off the bat is that she is not brain dead. That she does respond to external stimuli from her family. I believe this is a key issue in that if she is responding, in whatever way, shape or form, to her family, why is there any question as to whether or not to pull the plug? It seems ludicrous that her husband would even consider such a thing! Given the circumstances, with her husband fathering two children while still married to Mrs. Schiavo, having several mistresses, and strong suspicions of physical abuse, it becomes blindingly apparent that this man is up to no good. His intentions on ending Terry's life are disingenuous and self-serving. I will continue to pray for her family and for Terry Schiavo that she will recover even more so, maybe to the point of being able to communicate cohesively, which can put an end to this whole horrid debate.
