really you people don't get it do you? yes i know i'm generalising. and i got reasons for that.
all over the globe there are hundreds of thousands of people who are in coma. almost an equal amount of them are braindead for several years. do you
hear anyone, besides the family, about that? nope. so what makes this case special? absolutely nothing.
only difference with other cases is that this one has gone to court many times in almost 15 years or so. why? because the family are selfish and
can't accept their daughter has been dead for almost 15 years already. instead they want to keep the corpse warm and make their daughter suffer in
what they believe is "life". on the other hand you got the man, motives unknown yet due to media people suddenly feel this man is evil incarnate.
for many years this woman has shown that she is dead already. all her "reactions" aren't from a conscious level. they come from the back of the
mind which is "programmed" to make automatic responses to certain stimulation. her brain was dead for 90 or so percent.
many times this woman was cut off for food and ready to leave. then she was pulled back at the last minute every time. any idea how cruel that is? let
her rest already.
because it has been on the news and the media has shown "sympathy" images of this woman everyone suddenly feels sorry. aaww how nice...and so naive.
i don't see anyone caring for all the other coma patients with the very same fate in life.
people who go to church, thinking they understand the teachings and what not are one of the worst people in this case. they suddenly start to protest
saying that this is murder and #. if you were a believer of religion you wouldn't even accept medical aid to begin with, because if god thinks it's
your time he will take you. but then again, people these days think they are god and have the right to decide whether to keep someone artificially
warm and suffering instead of doing the humane thing and let the coma patients, who are braindead, go to rest. i felt especially sick when these naive
church goers started to use their children to protest and such.
and the pro-life activists. omg they are the most hypocritical of all the people who got themselves involved in this. trying to hire a hitman to take
away life from 2 perfectly healthy human beings...for what? to "save" the woman so she can suffer for many more years to come?
I can't believe, a so called free and openminded society like usa, still has to debate over topics like this. you should have it sorted by now
already. instead you're like 50 years behind of many other countries when it comes to this topic.
it's quite simple and i'm gonna lay it out for you all. when someone hits the state of coma there is still a chance they will come back. so the
first few years they will just be sleeping in a hospital. if the hospital is a good one they will perform regular check ups on the patients. during
one of the check ups, in due time, brain deterioration will be noticed. when most of the brain is dead you let the patient sleep in. no pain for the
patient and they can rest instead of being kept "alive" like a damn plant. even the families can find peace in that because they want whats good for
the other instead of being selfish and thinking they know whats best for the other while they don't. like in the shiavo case where her parents and
most of amerika seems to have wanted to make this woman suffer if they had their way. even bush seems to have wanted to make her suffer, but then
again he's an idiot. and thats a whole new topic.
so now this woman is finally allowed to find rest. but just like expected from the media, and how they manipulated most of the population, they will
drag on the story. after all you need a scapegoat now to please the concervative/religious idiots and anyone else that was against letting this woman
find peace. and who is the easiest the pick on? indeed the husband.
no one seems to know his real motives (yet). all is just speculation upon speculation. even in this thread i seen one ignorant peron (topic starter,
no offense intended) say that he was trying to hide something by wanting to cremate his wife. all this bull#. so he changed his mind now. i'd do the
same when so many people would bitch at me blaming me for things i didnt do. this autopsy will proof he didnt do a thing and that the woman was dead
as it was. this proof which he'll gather can then be used in future law suits, which he'll probably have to deal with. seeing so many people believe
he is a murderer @: if the autopsy proofs he did kill her. then so be it, but i doubt it, unless things get tempered with. which isn't unusual for
those parts of the world.
after all...digging up dirt, making up dirt and making someone look real evil just to make the other party look good so they can recieve sympathy is
the american way. just look at how things are done in the court of law on an almost daily base. don't tell me it's not true, i got satalite tv and
can recieve various channels all across the globe.
in short, i'm disgusted at how badly a country like this deals with coma patients who are way past gone. so inhumane, selfish and cruel. it's still
treated like a taboo
i'm glad i live in the Netherlands. sure we got our problems, but at least we got things sorted when it comes to live and death :@
as for me personally. i got my will and everything sorted already. and that at age 21. it's best to embrace death then to fear it and look at it like
some sort of taboo. after all, death is just another aspect of life. either accept it all, or don't accept anything
as for the burial method. either way will be fine. the outcome is still the same. its not like you need your body on the other side anyway. once again
this is just a selfish issue. you want to cremate her to feel peace with yourself? (husband) or do you want to bury her to find peace with yourselves
