Oh Sullivan, how foolish
I am literally sitting in the hospital room with my dying father .... He is dying of Pulmonary Fibrosis, a disease from which there is no chance of recovery. He has specified in a living will, and thru multiple discussions with family and the hospital staff, that he does not wish to be placed on life support when the rapidly approaching (within days) time comes.
The thought of having the state, in the name of someone else's beliefs, defy my father's wishes for a natural death with dignity, fills me with rage...
This makes it to Sully's email of the day.
An hysterical rant from a pathetic loser whose father is dying and instead of praising his father's unambiguous declaration as to his wishes not to be kept alive and with his family on a life support machine, he uses his fathers coming death as an occasion to squeal about something that WILL NOT HAPPEN.
Schiavo husband gave hearsay evidence of Schiavo wife's wishes about not living on life support. Hearsay. Would not carry weight in a typical case and certainly shoulod not have carried weight in a case of life and death - veggie life included.
This Sullivan's readers father has been clear about his wishes in front of independent witneses.
The two fact situations could not be more different.
Pretty simple, really.
Too simple for Sully.
