Feed Me

Has anyone noted the real irony with the Terri Schiavo right-to-die case?

She got into this whole mess because she had an eating disorder (bulimia/anoxeria or whatever) that caused her heart to stop. That robbed her brain of oxygen and put her in her current vegetative state.

Ok, fine. But now they're fighting over whether they can keep her connected to a *feeding* tube?? Can you imagine a more nightmarish scenario for an anoxeric woman -- being force-fed 24 hours a day? Maybe that's how her husband should couch his arguments.
