Mercy Killing without Mercy

Terri Schiavo has slipped the surly bonds of matrimony to Michael Schiavo to find the mercy no earthly judge could grant her. At the end her family was still pleading for Michael’s mercy to be with their beloved daughter and sister as she passed. Terri is safe from Michael and the courts forever.

The case of Terri Schiavo is now out of the legal realm and into the moral where it will be debated and reconsidered for years to come in the court of public opinion, which never closes.

My heart aches for Mary, Bob, Suzanne and Bobby. I know how it feels to be haunted by powerlessness when a dear family member dies from dehydration and starvation and their experience was so much crueler than mine. I pray that their exhaustive diligence brings them peace and comfort.

May God bless Terri and the Schindler family with His loving mercy.
