Pro-death, anti-disabled propaganda on Terri Schiavo's tombstone

http://www.wftv.com/news/4634214/detail.html

Link leads to photo of Terri Schiavo's tombstone. Her unfaithful
husband chose to put the date of her becoming disabled as the date of
her death.

In my mind this vicious hatred of the disabled--- saying they are not
really alive--- is on a par with bigots who say black people are not
humans but 'apes'. Sick, sick, sick!

This just redoubles my determination to promote the idea of
memorializing Terri Schiavo and other euthanasia victims in a quilt and
a website showing the making of the quilt. This killing of the disabled
has been going on in silence long enough--- it's time to get rowdy about it!
