Terri Schiavo 'should matter to us,' Judge Greer's new pastor saysTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
- Florida Baptist Witness
Her name is Sharon. You don't know her, but God does. She matters to God, she matters to me, and how she is treated should matter to you. She will never engage in stimulating conversation or ponder political debates. She will never read a book or write a paragraph. She will never marry or raise children or even earn her own keep. But she matters.
Sharon is my handicapped sister. She is mentally impaired, severely so, and has been from birth. My brother and I watched our parents care for her and somehow we learned an intuitive almost unspoken lesson. Her life is valuable, as valuable as that of her two brothers, both active in ministry. Whatever difference exists between her IQ and mine, imagine the gap between mine and God's! Yet he loved me and valued me so much that He would send the Jewel of Heaven to buy me back. He made me and redeemed me and that is the heart of our conviction about human life--everyone matters to God. Which brings us to Terri Schiavo.

Let Terry Schiavo live. All that voted for the feeding tube to come out are murderers and you know it. There is still time to put it back in.
Save her life. She responds to people in the hospital and God loves her. Since her husband doesn't care about her, why should he be her guardian. Her parents love her and she shouldn't be killed just because she is mentally handicapped. God and many others love her. This is murder and all who want feeding tube out are MURDERERS. There is no difference between abortion (which is also wrong), weapon killing, and removing an instrument that keeps someone alive. These are all murder. Save Terry Schiavo. LET HER LIVE
