Relapsed Catholic with a link to an article about Kate Adamson, a woman in a "vegetative state" whose feeding tube was "at one point removed for a full eight days before being reinserted due to the intervention of her husband (also a competent lawyer)." She's now talking about her experience.
"Terri Schiavo, although not nearly as severely disabled as Adamson once appeared to be, is slotted to have her feeding tube removed at 1:00 pm this Friday." (Emphasis mine.)
Need we say more?
