Terri Schiavo Implicitly Affirms Life Support for Jahi McMath

The 1990s and 2000’s were a time when the Terri Schiavo case got a lot of media publicity. Both sides were armed for and against euthanasia. The topic of mercy killing is not easy to resolve especially where friends and family are concerned. Terri’s parents wanted to extend their brain dead daughter’s life.

They were the ones who had given her life and to take it away from her was the unthinkable. But her husband wanted to end the misery she was in. Finally, the feeding tube was removed and she died to the disappointment of her family who started a foundation in her name. Today, another couple’s daughter, Jahi McMath is considered brain dead after a botched tonsillectomy. And her parents want her to be put on life support

The Terri Schiavo Foundation claims that it lies in the interests of the greedy medical sector to dispose of patients even when they have a chance of recovery from their comatose state. However, doctors say that keeping a brain dead patient alive needlessly is torture to that person. It is a sort of suspended animation and the individual has a vegetable existence. 

The family lawyer of Jahi has pointed a finger at the hospital for neglect of human life and humanitarian values. The hot potato topic of euthanasia is one that has no formal resolution. It requires extremely good judgment since it resembles assisted suicide. The prayers of the nation as well as the rest of the world are with 13 year old Jahi McMath who is stuck between the twin realms of life and death. May God ease help her in the predicament she is in!

Why do some people get sick while others stay healthy? And if doctors can't save someone, can God? A lot of ...
