Quote# 58637

The Italian government has been plunged into a constitutional crisis over the fate of a 38-year-old woman who has been in a coma for the past 17 years. Eluana Englaro was left in a vegetative state after a car crash in 1992. After a decade-long court battle, doctors reduced her nutrition on Friday in preparation for removing her feeding tubes, which her father claims would be in accordance with her wishes.

But in an extraordinary turn of events, the country's prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, after consultation with the Vatican, has issued an emergency decree stating that food and water cannot be suspended for any patient depending upon them, reversing the earlier court ruling. On issuing the emergency decree, Berlusconi declared: "This is murder. I would be failing to rescue her. I'm not a Pontius Pilate."

Justifying his campaign to save Englaro's life, the prime minister added that, physically at least, she was "in the condition to have babies"

So, you're saying someone should be sleeping with a comatose woman?

Berlusconi e' molto pazzo.

"Let's rape the vegetable because she can still have kids!!"...that's a new low...even for you Catholicism....

Aaargh, that is the vilest image I've had in my head for about a year. Goodbye lunch.

Yeah, a woman in a coma is gonna have babies. Someone will think it's normal and okay to fuck someone in her state, and then those babies will grow up financially and emotionally supported with a healthy view of the world.


I can't believe some people.

Berlusconi, obviously, fucks dead women.

2/12/2009 5:12:58 AM

This is disturbing on so, so many levels.

2/12/2009 5:36:50 AM


This kind of shit pisses me off. This should be all private to the family. There is no reason the fucking government or Vatican should get involved. And the last line is quite possibly the most disturbing thing I've read in awhile.

Bordering on necrophilia! *barfs*

2/12/2009 5:42:26 AM


Hey, Silvio, have you met former President G.W. Bush? You two wackos have a LOT in common...sounds like fundie love to me ^_^

2/12/2009 5:44:20 AM


It amazes me that that people actually vote for scumbags like Berlusconi. I'm an atheist so do not believe in kama. So the best I can hope is that this shit lands up in the same condition - even if he cannot have babies

2/12/2009 5:46:41 AM


Fuck you, Berlusconi, and fuck you, Ratfucker.

2/12/2009 5:47:12 AM


So, comatose females are incubators? Fuck you!

2/12/2009 5:53:26 AM


Uggghhh that's just sick!
I knew Xtains are Insane but that's just fucked up...

2/12/2009 5:54:52 AM


Wow, this sounds eerily familiar. America went through this crap a couple years ago. The only difference is that they're trying to justify keeping her alive because she's theoretically fertile, which is a pretty perverse justification...

2/12/2009 6:02:12 AM


Who cares if she has been a fucking bedridden braindead vegetable for 17 years...someone needs to do the nasty to her so she can spit out some kids...

That what you meant dickwad?

Jesus Christ let her die with some dignity at least. :(

Maybe I should come over there and try to impregnate you...up your ass...

2/12/2009 6:44:43 AM

Maybe Berlusconi should get together with that nutjob whose (name escapes me) blog appeared on here a while back, postulating that a good "use" for brain-dead female patients would be to put them into pods and use them for breeding purposes with a few chosen "righteous" Christian men, to raise up a new fundie nation. (((shudder))

2/12/2009 7:30:04 AM


I think this is a repost...

2/12/2009 7:44:15 AM


Well, we knew Berlusconi was an arse, but this is a new low even for him.

2/12/2009 7:45:31 AM


Great job alienating the people, Silvio.

2/12/2009 7:47:26 AM


Berlusconi declared: "This is murder. I would be failing to rescue her. I'm not a Pontius Pilate."

Any attempt to rescue her failed in 1992. She's all but dead.

Justifying his campaign to save Englaro's life, the prime minister added that, physically at least, she was "in the condition to have babies"

That's very, very creepy.

2/12/2009 7:48:14 AM

a mind far far away

Thank Darwin she died right after Berlusconi made that order to keep her on her feeding tube, or else we'd have a bunch of catholic comatose kids running around, starting crusades and shit.

2/12/2009 7:51:15 AM


Why the fuck did the Vatican get involved?

2/12/2009 9:22:25 AM


As an Italian I would like to apologize for inflicting upon the world a repeat of the Terry Schiavo fiasco.

I would also like to apologize for Berlusconi, but unfortunately he is inexcusable.
