Just saw the teaser headline that the husband of Terri Schiavo is disgusted by a Jeb Bush ad that featured her. There is nothing more disgusting than the "husband's" behavior in forcing her to die of hunger and thirst when her own family was willing to take care of her. He went to court, won millions which were supposed to be for her lifetime care, then took a new "wife," and abandoned Terri to a painful death. There's probably a better word than disgusting for him, but I don't own that sort of vocabulary.
She wasn't connected to life support--was breathing on her own. Could recognize voices and respond. She needed food and water, as we all do to live, but because she couldn't swallow, she was disconnected from life. Her parents begged to let her be their responsibility.
