Italy has their own Terry Shiavo case going on where the fate of a women who has been in a vegetative state for 17 years is now being debated between the wishes of her family and the government. The father, who says his daughter expressed that she wouldn’t want to live like she is currently, has attempted to have doctors reduce and eventually stop feeding her. Meanwhile the Italian government with help from the Vatican is trying to prevent the doctors from carrying out her family’s wishes.
Of course this issue is nothing new but what caught my eye was this beauty from the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi trying to justify why this woman should remain a vegetable.
Justifying his campaign to save Englaro’s life, the prime minister added that, physically at least, she was “in the condition to have babies”
