Right to life for all

Dear Editor:I read the letters regarding Krabloonik with a heavy heart, but it wasn’t until I read the letter from Jennifer Houston that I made a sickening discovery. She actually said, “Ew! Does this mean it’s OK to starve and beat our animals, if that’s what someone wants to do with them?”Was Jennifer writing letters to the editor on behalf of Terri Schiavo? If she was, I wholeheartedly support her strong “right to life” stance and appreciate her devotion to the cause. These animals that MacEachen euthanizes are not healthy, vibrant ones are they? They are the infirm, terminally ill and possibly disabled ones, right? When did animals’ “rights” to die honorably and humanely rise as a higher social issue for some?People need to take account of their value system, and if a dog ought not be starved or dehydrated to death, which obviously it should not – perhaps a human ought not either? Terri Schiavo may not have wanted to live, that is debatable, but to die in that fashion is not even suitable for an animal!Sue KelloggGlenwood Springs
