I have been calling them Nazis

--posted by Tony Garcia on 3/23/2005

I have been calling those who want Terri's tube pulled "Nazis in training". Unlike the Democrats who throw that term around like a baseball I have a reason for doing so.

Should we kill a baby whose parents, while still loving the baby, just cannot care for it? The baby is handicap with no hope of recovery, blind, one-arm, one-leg and very mentally retarded. It basically has no higher-brain functions and the quality of life is at best the same as Terri Schiavo when the court first ordered her starved to death.

Should we kill it? It would be mercy killing, the same as Terri. It wishes are known with as much certianty as Terri's.

Should we kill it?

Without fail those whom I ask this question to have said yes.

That is the same answer that Hitler gave. The baby I describe is also known as Baby Knauer.

That baby was the beginning of what turned out to be a slippery slope that was followed...and it is starting all over again.

Should we kill the baby? Should we have killed Terri?

I have fair skin and burn easily. My quality of life at the beach is substandard. I'm also a bit pidgeon-toed.

*Gulp* I'm next.

Hitler killed disabled poeple, including children, for very different reasons. He wanted a pure race, and saw ppl with disabilities as a contaminating nuisance. Nazis didn't kill the disabled out of mercy!!! And, there's a difference between "killing" and "letting die," but that's a different issue altogether.

Don't overlook such key motivations in a haste to label those who disagree with you.

THIS IS A SICK, SURREAL JOKE...

While the Economy is falling apart, inflation is on the march, we're in the middle of a War with no end, sick people die because of no health care, bankruptcy rates increase, the housing market bubble gets bigger and bigger - and gasoline prices are going through the roof...

Our President, his brother, and Congress worry about a woman in a "vegetatitve state" at some hospice in Florida.

You couldn't MAKE this up!

'there's a difference between "killing" and "letting die," but that's a different issue altogether.'

and you know, that's true, there is a difference. The Nazis of course carried out barbaric acts of "killing" like a gunshot to the head or suffocation in a gas chamber. Our more civilized Florida court has ordered that Terri's feeding tube be removed and no hydration or nutrition be given through her mouth. Finally, we are "letting (her) die".

Unfortunately for Terri, according to neurologist William Burke in an excerpt posted by Atomizer in Fraterlibertas, she, "A conscious [cognitively disabled] person would feel it just as you or I would. They will go into seizures. Their skin cracks, their tongue cracks, their lips crack. They may have nosebleeds because of the drying of the mucus membranes, and heaving and vomiting might ensue because of the drying out of the stomach lining. They feel the pangs of hunger and thirst. Imagine going one day without a glass of water! Death by dehydration takes ten to fourteen days. It is an extremely agonizing death."

Hmmm, I think if I was forced to decide I would prefer being killed by Nazis over the Florida courts method for letting me die.

Wait, hold the presses, concerning the Nazis and their 1939 "mercy killing" of the sick and disabled, I found this at http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/timeline/euthanasia.htm:

"A decision on whether to allow the child to live was then made by three medical experts... Three plus symbols resulted in a euthanasia warrant being issued and the transfer of the child to a 'Children's Specialty Department' for death by injection or gradual starvation."

I guess they weren't so barbaric after all!!
