Mis deseos

OK, aquí van, para que no me pase como a Terri:
Si por cualquier motivo muero, quiero que donen todos mis órganos para que personas que los necesiten puedan utlizarlos. Las córneas van al Banco de Córneas de los Clubes de Leones del Distrito R. El resto de los órganos, a instituciones que se encargen de asignárselos a personas que los necesiten, y en caso de que esas instituciones no existan, que el mayor de mis familiares cercanos decida a quién entregárselos.
En caso de que sufra cualquier tipo de accidente que me deje en estado vegetativo prolongado (como Terri), si respondo a los estímulos de los sentidos por favor manténganme viva. Si las únicas máquinas que me mantienen con vida son aquellas que me alimentan o me dan agua, manténganme viva. Eso sí, no permitan que sufra.
Si tengo muerte cerebral irreversible, háganme el favor y desconéctenme de cualquier aparato que me mantenga viva artificialmente.
Si estoy en coma, manténganme viva. Conozco el caso de una persona que despertó de un coma profundo luego de 19 años.
Si muero y hay forma de resucitarme, háganlo. Si Dios quiere que viva, él buscará la forma de hacerme vivir.
Por favor, no me dejen morir de inanición ni de deshidratación como pasó con Terri.

¿Estamos claros?

I dont know how to work these things (blogs)and for that matter didnt know not even where to post, but anyways I think you might enjoy reading SuperSonicGaba blog (link in remolacha.com), the article on US Newspapers. I think I know how much you hate "anonymous" postings so for the record my e mail is keniamedrano@hotmail.com,(obviously my name withing :P). I enjoy your blog so much its the first thing I do after reading remolacha everyday.
Keep up the good writing, and thanks for giving me those few minutes of total abandonment every day. (I am 48 yrs. old and manager of a handmade cigar company in a free zone in Santiago, RD). Bye!!!

DITTO ENY. WHAT HAPPENED TO TERRI SUCKED. IT NEVER SHOULDVE HAPPENED. WHAT WAS A LIFE AND DEATH MATTER TURNED INTO A MEDIA CIRCUS. TO TOP IT ALL OFF, NOW THE A*&^HOLE OF HER HUSBAND IS GONNA RECIEVE A BUNDLE OF MONEY FOR "RELIEVING" POOR TERRY OF HER MISERY. THANK GOD FOR THE "JUSTICE FOR ALL" PART OF OUR ALLEGIANCE.

What gets to me is that the people who want her to live are mostly conservatives. All these liberals who hate President Bush opposed Republicans to simply give her family another day in court. Meaning they would have allowd this "legal murder" to happen. Liberals just make me so proud...Hipocritas.

I knew Gabemaster would turn up to say something like that! UGH! Like I've said before in other postings, nobody deserves to die like that, but nobody deserves to LIVE like that either. Trying to keep her alive was a mistake. Had she been my loved one, I would have called Dr. Kevorkian for tips.

Right, letting somebody in that situation STARVE to death is veeery compassionate. She didn't leave anything in writing so is her husband's word against her parent's. Maybe she could have said to pull the plug on her if she is hooked up to a machine keeping her alive artificially but like Bracuta said she wants for herself maybe she didnt want to be unplugged if those machines were only feeding her. The thing is we will never know but since noone knows for certain why not err on the side of Life. Why kill her by not giving her food or water. This is barbaric. And liberals side with that mentality, just because you would prefer to be starved to death doesnt mean everybody else should.
They say she wouldn't even feel starving or in pain, oh yeah then why the hell did they have to giver her morphine?? She definetly felt something that was not good and they knew it. Like the President said "If we are going to err then let's do it on the side of life" there s nothing wrong with that.
