Terry's Tube Removed

The feeding tube that has kept Terri Schiavo alive for 15 years has been removed, said Suzanne Vitadamo, her sister. The move comes amid a flurry of legal activity focusing on the brain-damaged woman Friday, including two very different orders handed down by two judges. Seven years ago Schiavo's husband, Michael, and her parents began a legal tug-of-war over whether to have her feeding tube removed and allow her to die.

Ironically, Scott Peterson received the death sentence for killing his wife while Michael Schiavo will recieve a million dollar inheritance for his. Also ironic is that as a criminal, Scott Peterson's death will be relatively quick and painless, while it is estimated that Terry will slowly die over the course of one to two full weeks. What is wrong with this picture?
