What is wrong with this world!!!!!

Here is an excerpt from Schindler attorney Barbara Weller's account of the last few visits with Terry Schiavo. I found it via David Limbaugh's blog. I encourage you to read the entire account. If anyone is still wondering whether this woman is alive and does want to live, this will dispel all doubts immediately.
The most dramatic event of this visit happened at one point when I was sitting on Terri’s bed next to Suzanne. Terri was sitting in her lounge chair and her aunt was standing at the foot of the chair. I stood up and learned over Terri. I took her arms in both of my hands. I said to her, “Terri if you could only say ‘I want to live’ this whole thing could be over today.” I begged her to try very hard to say, “I want to live.” To my enormous shock and surprise, Terri’s eyes opened wide, she looked me square in the face, and with a look of great concentration, she said, “Ahhhhhhh.” Then, seeming to summon up all the strength she had, she virtually screamed, “Waaaaaaaa.” She yelled so loudly that Michael Vitadamo, Suzanne’s husband, and the female police officer who were then standing together outside Terri’s door, clearly heard her. At that point, Terri had a look of anguish on her face that I had never seen before and she seemed to be struggling hard, but was unable to complete the sentence. She became very frustrated and began to cry. I was horrified that I was obviously causing Terri so much anguish. Suzanne and I began to stroke Terri’s face and hair to comfort her. I told Terri I was very sorry. It had not been my intention to upset her so much. Suzanne and I assured Terri that her efforts were much appreciated and that she did not need to try to say anything more. I promised Terri I would tell the world that she had tried to say, ”I want to live.”
I want to live. Amazing!

Putting this woman to death is an act of pure evil, plain and simple. There is literally no excuse to do such a thing. The fact that this situation has been allowed to go this far is a very chilling testament of how our society has devolved into an immoral, egocentric sesspool where one will do anything to uphold their ideology, even at the expense of human life. At the onset I gave Mr. Schiavo the benefit of a doubt, wondering if Terry really did request such a thing, but at this stage there is no doubt that this man is looking out for his own interests and not that of his wife.

This is all about one man who is to much of a coward to admit his wrongs and be accountable to his own wife. He would rather murder her than to simply do what is right.

In all this I pray for God's will to be done.
