I suppose that the name of Englaro would never have reached my consciousness were it not for the inhumane remarks made by the leader of Italy regarding her condition:
“Physically at least she is in the condition to have babies”,
The woman had been in a coma for seventeen years and last night she died peacefully. I have written before on my dislike for Senor Berlusconi (I shall link it at the bottom of the page); but that remark that he made whilst intruding in a dying has no answer .
