I just flipped on Fox News and caught the last few seconds of a commercial. It was one of those sleezy lawyer spots. Ugly graphics, big type, cheap production value, etc.
There’s a “lawyer” on camera pushing Living Wills. As the video of Terri Schiavo in that hospital bed played behind him.
Full screen shots of her. Up close shots of her. Until only her face fills the entire screen.
As the “lawyer” says, “Don’t let this happen to you. Call today to get your living will!”
Throughout the Terri Schiavo fiasco there was only one thing I felt I knew for sure. That she would never have wanted her physically disabled condition broadcast around the world. I don’t know one woman who would have wanted that.
And when I found out that her parents were selling copies of that video for $100 each, I was appalled. Absolutely disgusted.
While trying to save their daughter’s life, they have sold her soul.
They do indeed have a lot to live with.
