Autopsy findings ultimately irrelevant

June 16, 2005 09:00 AM

The results of Terri Schiavo's autopsy provide some answers concerning her physical condition, but in no way do these findings justify the cruel death by dehydration that was imposed on a living human being. The fact remains that Terri was not dying, did not have a terminal condition, and could have continued to survive with proper nutrition and hydration. There are those who will use this autopsy report to claim that the death by dehydration imposed on Terri Schiavo was compassionate or merciful. Others would say such a life is not worth living. Such thinking is misguided and absolutely wrong. Those decisions are not ours to make.
