Schiavo: et tu, Ralph Nader?

Ralph just boarded the "Save Terri" train.

I'm realizing that I'm not a fan of the remove-the-feeding-tube method. As Terry Schiavo has no cognitive processes, she experiences no pain that is not simple reflex. But it's awfully hard on people to watch. But of course, it's not technically legal to give a morphine order to "titrate to pain," especially when the patient isn't experiencing cognitive pain. Though I'm pretty sure that'd be the most ethical method.
