The Catholic Church and Terri (a devout Catholic)

I must admit that I do not understand.  Where are the officials of the Holy Catholic Church?  What is this silence and inaction that reigns most prominent in response to the plight of Terri Schiavo and those of like desperation?

How can you justify (singularly and as a whole) for any to embrace the beliefs of the church and teachings of Jesus Christ while then turning your backs so obviously on a gentle lamb left to be fed upon, and devoured by, the vicious wolves of darkness?
A life long Catholic, I shiver in the aloneness and abandonment I feel this day as a result of your failure to act -- to intercede -- in saving a young woman from the hands of not just murder, but the horrendous torture of dehydration and starvation.  Alone and abandoned.  Alone and abandoned and wondering if  the church would do for me what it has not done for Terri Schiavo?  Would it fight for my life if I could not?  Would it fight for my right to my religious beliefs if I could not?  Or...  would I, too,  be left laying there at the mercy of those who should have no authority over the slightest of  breaths I take or not?
Would I lay there in the darkness of my moment wondering why an atheist had right to his/her belief and not I?  Why an atheist could so readily be embraced by the U.S. Supreme Court though my church -- the Catholic Church -- would not even step up to the attempt and demand like rights in the behalf of me and those like me?  Is this what I would feel?  Alone and abandoned?  Touched by the possibility that my belief... my church... is no more than an illusion of the strength and love it once was within this plane of being?  Touched by the possibility that my church... the church family I so felt safe within... has somehow moved into some other realm I'm not invited into?  Perhaps I wouldn't wish to be.  I suppose I am left to wonder.
One commits mortal sin to abort a baby -- but the Catholic Church may readily abort Terri Schiavo and those such as she?  I find the irony so teasing and taunting.  And so desperate to wonder...
Where are the officials of the Holy Catholic Church?  What is this silence and inaction that reigns most prominent in response to the plight of Terri Schiavo and those of like desperation?  How can you justify (singularly and as a whole) for any to embrace the beliefs of the church and teachings of Jesus Christ while then turning your backs so obviously on a gentle lamb left to be fed upon, and devoured by, the vicious wolves of darkness?
May God Embrace and Help Us All!
