Blogburst for Terri: Terri on Morphine Drip

From Reuters

I don't have it in me to post what I know about what is happening to Terri physically now. I'm glad they have her on morphine.

Schiavo, 41, passed her ninth day without nourishment and Gibbs said she was declining rapidly. "They've begun to give her morphine drip for the pain. And at this point, we would say Terri has passed the point of no return," he told CBS' "Face the Nation."

But the same report parrots the tiresome lie that Terri can't suffer.

Doctors have said Schiavo would live for up to two weeks without the feeding tube. They say patients in her condition appear to feel little or no discomfort when deprived of nutrition and water.

They apparently see no need to reconcile the obvious contradiction.
