Cardinal Martino Appeals for Terri SchiavoTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
"A Vatican official launched an appeal to save Terri Schiavo, the
brain-damaged Florida woman whose husband wants her off life-support
care." The only problem with the statement is that she is NOT on any form of life-support. She needs food and water but so do you and I. Had she been givent the opportunity to learn to take in food and water without a tube, she wouldn't even need the tube. One of Terri's former nurses provided an affidavid that she had fed Terri jello, but Judge Greer wouldn't listen. However the news from the Vatican is nothing less than very good news.
... In statements on Vatican Radio, Cardinal Renato Martino, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, said: "If Mr. Schiavo succeeds legally in causing the death of his wife, this not only would be tragic in itself, but would be a grave step toward the legal approval of euthanasia in the United States."
... He added: "I would like to remind everyone in this connection, about all that the Holy Father has said in past days to the Pontifical Academy for Life, confirming that the quality of life is not interpreted as economic success, beauty and physical pleasure, but consists in the supreme dignity of the creature made in the image and likeness of God.
... "No one can be the arbiter of life except God himself."
