A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your views on Congress getting involved with the Terri Schiavo case?"
"I would guess that if they felt there was any possibility of saving the poor girl's life that they probably should get involved. They get involved with abortion and everything else so why shouldn't they get involved with this?"
Bob Cronin, Leabrook Lane
"I think it's ridiculous. I wonder why people are not discussing the fact that as science gets more advanced, they're going to be thinking of more ways to keep people alive and when will it end. If the woman has no chance of getting better it seems crazy."
Lindsey Kayman Kotliar, Mount Lucas Road
"Mainly I think it's just a waste of money. It should be left to the husband to decide what to do about it and they should leave it up to him. Congress should focus on more important issues that affect everyone as a whole."
Ajay Patel, Bunker Hill Road
"From my point of view it's personal and if family members take responsibility and still care about her she should still be alive. She's part of their family. It's very difficult to let someone die if they are still cared about. I can't understand why Congress or anyone else should be involved with this. Maybe they should move to Switzerland to keep her alive."
Sergei Batyie, Wiggins Street
"In my opinion Congress has no right to get involved in this case. Leave things about the person and the body to the person and their own body."
Harlan Tenenbaum & Eli, Spruce Street
