Ms. Succo raises an interesting point regarding Terri Schiavo in her letter to the editor- that she did not have a living will. How many of us at CSU have thought through to make up a living will at our ages? Probably not many.
What makes it hard to respect Mr. Schiavo is that he has "gotten on with his life." As Mr. Miller is mistaken, Mr. Schiavo has not been fighting for his wife's wishes for 15 years, but instead, he has been living with another woman in the meantime. In most states bigamy is against the law. So why then was the Schiavo's marriage not annulled by Florida state law, as Mr. Schiavo has a common-law wife?
Terri Schiavo has been injured by her husband's common-law situation. Wouldn't it make sense to recognize Terri's parents as the most qualified to exercise legal guardianship over their daughter?
