These scriptures come to mind.
For I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. (Matthew 25:35)

Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these
My brethren, you have done it unto Me. Matthew 25:40

Rescue those being led away to death...If you profess ignorance and say, Behold, we did not know this, does not He Who weighs and ponders the hearts perceive and consider it? And shall not He render to you and every man according to his works?" Proverbs 24:11-12,

THE PRICE OF SILENCE

When they came for the poor,
I was silent, because I was well-off.

When they came for the homeless,
I was silent, because I had a home.

When they came for the unemployed,
I was silent because I had a job.


When they came for the immigrants,
I was silent because I was born here.

When they came for the sick and disabled,
I was silent because I was healthy.

When they came for the women,
I was silent because I was male.

When they came for the unborn children,
I was silent because it wasn't my problem.

When they came for the children,
I was silent because I was grown-up.

When they came for the students,
I was silent because I had my degree.

When they came for the youth,
I was silent because I was middle-aged.

When they came for the Jews,
I was silent because I was Anglo-Saxon.

When at last, they came for me, no one was left to hear my cries.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I pray that none of my family or friends are ever in a situation like Terri Schaivo.
But I wrote my congressmen anyway.

Her skin is cracking now from dehydration!
It is her husband who is demanding they remove it. He has a girlfriend (supposedly the same one
he was running around with when this happened to Terri.)

Yep, if someone starves a dog or horse they can go to prison but let them starve a human being and people say it is ok!

Could you imagine if someone wouldn't let you have a drink of water? Why let her starve and thirst to death!!!

Her skin is cracking now because she is so dehydrated.

Everyone seems to have an opinon on Terri Schaivo whether they really understand it or not!
Everyone seems to have an opinion on this but most of them are confused and think that it is all about
taking Terri Schiavo off of a respirator. She is NOT connected to one. The controversy is
that they have disconnected her feeding tube and now she will starve and thirst to death. How inhumane! Where do they put people who do that to a dog or horse? What if this was one of your loved ones?

I personally would not want to be connected to a respirator if I was brain dead but PLEASE don't let me starve or thirst to death!

For anyone who does not know:
Terri Schiavo's collapse has been attributed to a chemical imbalance caused by an eating disorder click to read more

Rescue those being led away to death...If you profess ignorance and say, Behold, we did not know this, does not He Who weighs and ponders the hearts perceive and consider it? And shall not He render to you and every man according to his works?" Proverbs 24:11-12,


Several different translations but I think it is clear that we need to be praying for Terri Schiavo.
----------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 24:11-12, KJV: "If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; if thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? And he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? And shall not he render to every man according to his works?"

Proverbs 24:11-12, AMP: "Deliver those who are drawn away to death, and those who totter to the slaughter hold back from their doom. If you profess ignorance and say, Behold, we did not know this, does not He Who weighs and ponders the hearts perceive and consider it? And He Who guards your life, does not He know it? And shall not He render to you and every man according to his works?"

Proverbs 24:11-12, NIV: "Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, 'But we knew nothing about this,' does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?"

Proverbs 24:11-12, The Message: "Rescue the perishing; don't hesitate to step in and help. If you say, 'Hey, that's none of my business,' will that get you off the hook? Someone is watching you closely, you know-Someone not impressed with weak excuses."

Chemical imbalance brought on by an eating disorder ~ What caused Terri to be in a coma
Philadelphia) Schiavo's collapse has been attributed to a chemical imbalance caused by an eating disorder.

And the lesson inherent in that is uncomplicated and uncontroversial: women who kill themselves to be thin can kill themselves for real in the process.

Terri was unhappy about being a chubby child, according to published reports, and enrolled in a weight-loss program in her senior year of high school.

Men started noticing her once she began losing weight and she soon met Michael Schiavo, according to reports.

It was only later that other family members told a reporter they may have missed the problem. Terri didn't eat much, and her sister suspects she threw up after meals. They said she worried about gaining the weight back.

After she collapsed in 1990, she was found to have a potassium imbalance - one of the telltale signs of an eating disorder - and doctors theorized that's what caused her heart to stop. Click to read the whole
story
 

****************************************************

The case of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman who has been on life support for 15 years, has divided her family members, national lawmakers and the American public over right-to-die issues. Schiavo was 26 when her heart stopped because of a chemical imbalance believed to have been caused by an eating disorder, leaving her severely brain damaged.

Schiavo, 41, is the Tampa, Fla., woman whose heart stopped 15 years ago due to a chemical imbalance in her body. Doctors believe the imbalance may have been caused by an eating disorder.

Doctors restored her heartbeat, but she has been severely brain damaged for the past 15 years. She has required a feeding tube to eat.

Artificial ????
I can't get over how many people are confusing the feeding tube with a respirator and jumping on the bandwagon saying she shouldn't be kept alive by artificial means. (I was not aware that water was artificial!)

What makes it artificial....the fact is that someone who loves her is not willing to let her die simply because she can't pick up a cup and drink it herself. If your spouse or child or parent could not do that for themselves would you decide then they aren't worth keeping alive? And if answer yes, then what about yourself....would you want to be terribly thirsty and have no one give you a drink?
