    No, dead people cannot come back to life so neither can she regain hers. It's not only fair, but if why does illness make a difference? A healthy person can die from old age in there. She clearly is not healthy (mentally), she murdered people. What world are we living in where that is okay? What about people who have to be around a MURDERER? She can continue to grow as a person...in prison. Plus, religion is not a cure nor a sign of a good person and LSD is a choice.

    She should die in prison. I'm not saying to torture her or anything...make her comfortable...but she should die in prison. I don't care how much she's changed.

    The last words that eight months pregnant Sharon Tate ever heard were from Susan Atkin's mouth, as she was begging and saying "Please, I just want to have my baby..." were, "Look, -itch. I don't care about you. I don't care about your baby. You're going to die, and there's not a thing you can do about it."

    Susan Atkins is already being shown infinitely more compassion and mercy than she showed Sharon Tate.

    No. SHE says she has 6 months to live?? What do the doctors say?

    I just read that an inmate at San Quentin was let out to go to a regular hospital (instead of the infirmary) and he died there two days later. But he was still handcuffed to the bed..

    According to the latest I've heard, she has actually rebounded and has shown some improvement in recent months.

    No in my opinion she shouldn't. Here in the UK we had the case of Myra Hindley partner and accomplice of Moors murderer Ian Brady, she was in failing health and the so called do gooders campaigned to have her released from jail to die at her family home, but she died in jail and hopefully went on to burn in the fires of hell (my opinion only) for what she helped do. The children they murdered had families and I think they really had the loudest voices when it came to making the final decision.

    I say keep this woman inside to die alone.

    Source(s): Really good question.

    Absolutely not. She can't possibly have fully grasped the evil of her actions because who can grasp it? It's not humanly possible to grasp it, so a life sentence is the only option.

    Life in prison means you live there until you die. She is a beast, she was the craziest one of the whole bunch next to Manson. Her victims did not get a second chance, she shouldn't either. In my opinion.

  • H*** no did the people she killed when they asked her to stop because she was pregnant did she * show any compassion no let her stay and * suffer just like the people she killed and the family's

    No. I just think about that that poor 9 month old baby and Helpless Sharon Tate getting slaughtered. That lady should rott in a cell until she croaks.

    No. What happens if Manson develops some horrendous disease and has 3 months left to live? Should he be let out too?
