Axia College Material Appendix D The Terri Schiavo Controversy This is an information presentation about the different opinions Terri Schiavo’s parents and husband had about ending or preserving her life. Background In 1990, Terri Schiavo became severely mentally disabled after her heart stopped momentarily, cutting off the oxygen supply to her brain. According to doctors, Terri was in a “vegetative” (“Terri Schiavo's Life,” 2003) condition; however, she was able to breathe without medical help and respond to stimuli.

She lives in her mind, barley speaks to anyone. She spends most of her time analyzing all the things around her life.

Helen Sumner, a mother of an unborn child, lies at Mercy Hospital in a comatose condition and is drawing a lot of unnecessary attention. Some (like journalist, Marcia Keaton) believe that Helen is dead and needs to be taken off life support immediately, which Keaton admits is keeping her alive. There are differing opinions on this situation and I feel the need to share my own. Marcia Keaton makes her views on this situation known by expressing her thoughts as it is. She doesn’t sugar-code any of the message and neither will I. Keaton’s main argument for taking Helen off the life support is that it costs too much money and the money can go to better causes than saving the unborn child’s life.

For Neo, it is facing Agent Smith. For Siddhartha, it is letting his son have his own experiences on his own path. Both find out that no matter how hard they fight, their fighting is carrying them further and further from enlightenment.

Terri Schiavo entered a persistent vegetative state in 1990 and would end up spending fifteen years of her life there. Doctors saw no hope for Terri and Michael, her husband, claimed it was his wife's wish to not be kept alive. Michael wanted her feeding tube removed, but Terri’s parents refused to let that happen. They hoped everyday that their daughter would somehow recover. Eventually, a bill was passed by George W. Bush, which gave hospitals the power to remove patients from life support.
