Irrevocable Choice

Irrevocable Choice is a blog about life issues. Those in favor of legalized abortion often use the word "choice." Once completed, the "choice" to destroy a human life either via abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research is IRREVOCABLE. It is PERMANENT. It can NEVER be undone. The innocent life can NEVER be restored.

Terri Schiavo's Forced Starvation Delayed

Today, a judge delayed Terri Schiavo's forced starvation and dehydration until March 18th. We can only pray that God will enlighten the heart of the judge, and/or Michael Schiavo in the meantime. We should also pray that the Schindlers will be successful in seeking other issues to stop the forced death of Terri Schiavo.

The attempt to starve Terri Schiavo to death is based on the claim that she told her husband she would not want to be kept alive artificially. There is NO documentation. There is NO written directive signed by Terri Schiavo herself. In short, this is HEARSAY. In most cases other cases, PROOF is required to support a claim. When the stakes are so high, in this case, the life of a human being, is it not common sense that proof should absolutely be required before that innocent life is destroyed?

According to LifeNews, Mr. Schiavo's attorney commented on the fact that Mr. Schiavo is living with another woman and has children by her. Read the link to see Mr. Felos' comments. I find them interesting. Typically, when a husband and wife get married, they vow before God and other witnesses to love, honor and obey their spouse in SICKNESS and in health, for better or WORSE, till death do they part. There aren't exceptions for "loneliness" or "different moral judgments." It's black and white. In sickness AND in health. If one cannot live up to such a commitment, they should never take such vows.

If Terri Schiavo's starvation and dehydration is allowed to begin, this sets up a dangerous legal precedent. In any case, anyone can CLAIM something was said and the court will accept it. Afterall, since it has been accepted in this case, it can easily be accepted elsewhere. The need for proof will become a thing of the past. Can we honestly call this "justice"?
