little dog - weim

schiavo

OK, what I don't understand in this whole controversy is the actual death methodology. Why starvation? Is there actually some reason? Are the husband and other proponents more comfortable with having it happen passively, rather than taking some more definitive (and, I'd think, more "humane") action, such as injection?

Regardless of whether the logic is correct (i.e., she can't feel any of the physical discomfort of starving to death), wouldn't another method be a lot quicker, more predictable and less drawn-out, and/or more dignified?

Sorry if this is a dumb question ... I haven't been closely following the story.
