Depressing

Majority of Americans in this Fox poll would remove Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube. I wonder how much that would go down if pollsters added a little more information in the question–that there is no evidence that she would have wanted to be removed from life support. That her husband has taken up with another woman, had children with another woman. That her parents say they just want to try to help their daughter–and doctors have offered to work with Terri for free–to see if she can be rehabilitated. Michael Schiavo can walk away–that’s all they are asking, from how I understand it: If the husband wants out, he can have out. And I wonder if people read this before they answered, if they would have answered differently.
