Worse than a flip-flop, Obama has declared he ‘regrets’ supporting Terri Schiavo’s RIGHT to live.
That woman had a CONSTITUTIONAL right to her life. There was NO EVIDENCE that she ever said she wanted to die if she was ‘in that condition.’
I’ve worked extensively with women who were battered and abused with some very dreadful results. The ONLY people who are willing to treat women that badly are men who don’t love, have NO compassion whatsoever. I’ve known women who were brilliant-and then destroyed; one an engineer, in the middle of complex and intricate naval projects who was fine one moment, and mentally severely disabled the next, because of a battering male. One ‘lucky’ hit and it was over for her and the quality of her life, forever. It has happened to many more, Terri Schiavo being only one of those.
Between this engineer and Terri there were a couple other differences. Terri had family who LOVED her. This engineer did not. Terri couldn’t get herself up out of bed and walk and speak, however badly. This engineer could, very badly.
The man who battered the engineer spent some time in jail. Not a lot, but it was something. Not Terri’s ‘husband.’ He got her money. He had a family on the side. He found her to be a ‘drag’ on his ‘new life.’
There is one other big difference- nobody cared if this engineer lived or died, so she lived. Nobody besides her batterer wanted her dead, and so she lived.
Terri, however, became the clarion call for all those who can’t love, who can’t sacrifice for love, who don’t want to be bothered, and call it ‘rights’.
When animals are penned up in a cage too small, or fed too little, we have animal rights activists all over people. When the Amish raise puppies for resale, to help themselves earn a living, they are faced with red-faced screaming crowds and signs proclaiming them to be a ‘puppy mill.’
Terri died one of the most horrible, torturous deaths a human being CAN die. People go to prison for withholding water or food from an animal, but she was made to go for 14 days without any.
YOU try going 3 days without water and you’ll see what kind of torture it quickly becomes.
Brute and vicious animals are put down more humanely than she was.
And now Obama REGRETS his compassion? His advocacy for Terri’s CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to life? Her parent’s CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT AND SCRIPTURAL OBLIGATION to care for the sick and dying?
Well, women’s advocacy groups and politicians- all I can say is- when will you begin to advocate for our RIGHTS under the Constitution?
You don’t advocate for me. You traded the ‘right to choose’ of a Laci Peterson for your agenda to NEVER have an unborn child be considered a person by law. You advocated for her ‘batterer/murderer’ and her son’s ‘batterer/murderer’ just so the child couldn’t be considered a person, with rights, by law.
You traded the rights of Terri Schiavo, in favor of her ‘batterer/murderer’ for your agenda to never be bothered with caretaking in any form. So also, Mr. Presidential Candidate, have you.
You ARE death dealers. It seems to me, ‘women’s advocates’ who have exterminated your own children, that there will be a day when you are old, and alone, and someone will think you’re too much a burden on society. You, too, perhaps, will be denied water and food, whether you ‘choose it’ or not. You’ve made euthanasia all too normal now- won’t it be an extreme act of hypocrisy for you to object, one day, when someone else complains you’re too much hassle and should be ‘euthanized.’ Our candidates are all going along with this monstrous, Nazi, agenda.
You, Obama, are no longer a viable candidate for many, many of us.
