TERRI'S FIGHT
(Daily Thread 2 - November 1-2, 2003)

Link back to thread 2 - October 30-31)

.

Contained in thread 2:

.

Contact information for the ACLJ, link for Chris Ferrara's legal brief, Senate Amendment to Terri's Bill, Ken Connor of the Family Research Council joins fight for Terri's Law, contact information for law enforcement and Judge Demers, Republic's impassioned letter to Judge Demers, Schiavo's claim that Terri's surgery was a success, link to CBN interview with the Schindlers (Oct 31), state's medical directors come out against Terri's Law, more links to testimony and legal debate, short bio on Judge Demers, update from the vigil and a doctor's exam report on Terri from 1990. Wacky Sam has also graciously offered to provide server space for documents to be kept to prevent their loss form other sources.

There is also a lot of discussion and links dealing with the seeming network of connnections between the girlfriend, Jodi, various insurance business links and possibly Terri's new doctor. In addition, several questions are addressed regarding Michael Schiavo's hiding of assets and tricks that may have been employed to throw off investigative efforts. Some of the FReepers have been doing their homework on the unholy alliances in the case. Let's keep working to connect the dots and expose the results. Also contained in thread 2 is some of Schiavo's litigious history, a bit more information on George Felos and more on Jay Wolfson. Some information on the doctors involved in Terri's case can be found on this thread as well. Since there are so many posts and links to the above mentioned topics, the best thing to do is to browse the thread.

I think the ACLU is oversimplifying the issues here. Jeb Bush did not overturn a judicial decision becsuse her disagreed with the outcome, he intervened to protect a class of citizens who stand to be put to death by unscrupulous guardians under the premise that the "right to die" must be protected over the "right to life" when there is no living will and the family members are not in agreement.

The ACLU has a weak case if this is the best they can put forth. The right to life, as outlined in the Declaration of Independence, trumps Michael and Felo's misguided "right to kill" garbage - and it's not lost on me that he was instrumental in getting that "right to die" stuff codified.

Schiavo has had more loopholes work in his favor than has I presume his favorite president: W.J.B. "Clinton." This man is a textbook case of lucky breaks in the pursuit of evil.

Courts do NOT consider anything in the Declaration of Independence in reference to modern interpretation of "law." Sorry to disappoint you, but the courts have forgotten Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, Livingston, and Sherman there.

Maybe it's time to FReep Washington and ask for a nation-wide moratorium on dehydtration death, where there is no living will and the family members disagree.

I see a need for a law passed to protect what I *thought* was an inalienable right - the right to life over death.

This man has so blatantly violated the covenant of marriage before God that he long ago lost the right to call himself Terri's husband.

Yes, you just made the point that characterizes the liberal community: "the ends (death) justify the means (recognizing the marriage bond)." Even though liberals claim to abhor that famous dictum, they use it to forward popular liberal ideas. Why can't the people of FL AND the USA see?

Absolutely, Demers has virtually said that he considers this law unconstitutional, and he is expecting a decision soon, and therefore "Dr." Wolfson won't have to finish is guardian ad-litemship.

Is Demers "Republican"?

I agree with you, but here's a question that is still
not fully looked at. "IS Micheal Paying Child Support ?"
If so, How long ?
How much ?
To whom ?

This is key to the investigation, it will be our 1st down.

There has been nothing said about Schiavo not paying child support for the child conceived in either 1989 or 1990. An earlier poster said he was paying child support. I would suspect that he may have dropped behind in payments, considering the nature of the man. This is another instance of how in the Age of Clinton ethics has ZERO bearing.

They lived in an apartment; apartment renters cannot get homeowners' insurance, can they? Or is "renters insurance" just a form of homeowners'? When I lived in an apartment, I never had renters' insurance, never thought about getting it. But I have always otherwise had homeowners' insurance.

"I keep reminding myself that this is a spiritual battle and though our numbers seem to be weak, we are strong in our convictions and our faith. (Hint: David and Golliath)"

Same here Saundra. And I think, too, of Gideon. God has always used the weak and the "foolish" to confound the wise in the world. I am so thankful that we have the support and the faith of one another to keep us mindful of that.

Thanks for the reminder Saundra, and Sweetliberty! I have felt all along that Terri's fight is a spiritual battle. I think we all get weary of the battle often, and I must admit yesterday was one of those days for me. "

I keep reminding myself that the " Battle is the Lords"! 1 Samuel 17:47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give all of you into our hands."

I have posted this till I am blue in the face, and nobody replies:

Why is there outrage that Schiavo said on Larry King that he had also dehydrated and starved both of his parents? He claimed that dehydration was the second most painless way to die -- after an aneuryism. Yes, he said that, and no one blinked.

Is there no pressure on the Morton Plant Hospital to remove him as an emergency nurse. One would think that Pinellas Co. residents would be complaining to the hospital about this kind of "nurse." Of course, I bet he would love for Morton Plant to fire him: another big civil suit would go forth?

Might I respectfully make a suggestion that you use higher contrast between the background color and the font color. Even with the larger font size, I am finding it very difficult to read the black on dark red, even with my glasses, and my vision isn't THAT bad.

Yes. I changed the purple (Terri's favorite color) to a a lighter as opposed to darker color. Do a refresh when you go to:

The 14-year-old was confirmed by a letter writer to the St. Petersburg Times who was a friend of Terri's before the collapse. Apparently, the newspaper refused to print her allegation. Larry King did not even know that he had this first child by Jodi, much less the 14-year-old.

I would imagine that the St. Petersburg Times is very careful about what it prints for fear that Schiavo would sue it for libel. He would probably say that he is NOT a "public figure" under the law and seek big damages there too.

Can't it be argued that Demers is circling the wagons to protect one of his own? (Greer)

Pending Supreme Court review, I doubt any judge will order that the dehydration/starvation be resumed, as that would constitute an irreversible error if Terri's Law is upheld by a higher court and she dies in the meantime of court-enforced dehydration/starvation.

Regardless of the outcome of Wolfson's investigation, there has been no ruling - yet - on Anderson's motion to remove Michael as guardian - that is coming up November 5.

Removal of Michael as guardian SHOULD BE a slam dunk! (to use a little basketball terminology)

From the Palm Beach Post:

"Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, tried twice to have the new law blocked by a Pinellas County judge but he refused. But the judge gave Felos five days to make new arguments and Terri Schiavo's parents five days to respond."

"Anderson said that earlier Wednesday, she had gotten a motion hearing date of Nov. 5 on her petition to remove Michael Schiavo as guardian of his wife."

I did not know that Pat Anderson will try on Wednesday to have Schiavo removed as guardian. How can she do this? Will Demers even recognize her to make a motion?

Wouldn't it be Wolfson, who would have to make such a motion, and we all think he is pro-Schiavo? Moreover, there is no chance that Demers will permit Schiavo's removal as guardian. Demers is just George W. Greer with eyesight, as I see it.

Jody's second child was born last week, according to reports here...so make that two, with a third child by an unknown woman, during his marriage to Terri (before her 'collapse' incidentally) unconfirmed.

I hope the woman who wrote to the newpaper has gotten in touch with the Schindlers - I understand she can give them the name of the woman in question. I thank her for her courage in coming forward.

Any impartial, unbiased guardian appointed to look out for Terri's interests would be in court demanding a divorce - I hope the new guardian takes Michael's blatant infidelity into consideration when reviewing the case. How can it be deemed irrelevent when Michael's guardianship is contested? It's evidence of his conflict of interest, for crying out loud!

Unfortunately, Judge Demers has ordered that because the new statute does not explicitly state the duties of the new guardian ad litem, those duties will be restricted to conducting such investigations as are necessary to advise Governor Bush about whether to leave in effect his order regarding Terri's feeding.

Unfortunately, I don't really see a good solution here. One thing that's needed is some real legislation to protect people from judges who make findings that are clearly contrary to fact, but I don't know how such legislation can be produced quickly without it having some major flaws.

I guess that the same could be used for the Life Ribbon itself so that it will say Join the Terri Schindler Life Ribbon Campaign like the banner example.

"The family and the attorneys are not comfortable with Dr. Wolfson," Hennessy said. "He has stated on local television that he is opposed to Terri's Law, that he is uncomfortable with it, so we feel that creates an instant bias."

anyone know the links to local news that may have video????

The pdf on Terri's site has a comment by Judge Demers that he did not believe there was proof of the statement by Wolfson and if there was that he didn't believe it would affect Wolfson's judgement....


evidently Demers doesnt' think Wolfson's behavior toward a female colleague will affect his behavior either.....

Pat is acting on behalf of the Schindlers, as Felos is acting on behalf of Michael (and supposedly Terri).

The appointment of Wolfson as guardian-at-litem does not supercede Michael's guardianship nor does it exclude the Schinders from exercising their rights in court.

Wolfson will report his findings to Jeb Bush, as I understand it. His findings will not carry the same weight as a judicial ruling, in fact I don't know if they will be made public, though I assume so.

Felos can be expected to challenge Michael's removal as guardian, if the court rules in Anderson's favor Nov. 5.

Also running in the background is the investigation into alleged abuse(s) by Michael Schiavo, of Terri as a disabled person, by the Florida agency (whose name escapes me right now) for elderly and disabled persons. We will not learn of their findings until that investigation has been completed.

So Schiavo reluctantly acknowledged "one child" when Larry King asked, though he had just had his second one some three days earlier! Obviously, Schiavo did not want his "adoring fans" (like Janet Reno)to know the full measure of the man.

if the court rules in Anderson's favor Nov. 5.

If that were to happen, the whole case would be essentially over, and Schiavo would be unable to continue his battle to kill her. I doubt that hardly ANYONE expects Demers to rule against Schiavo as the guardian.

Interesting article about the hospice here...(long, only posting tidbits)
http://www.hospicepatients.org/Saving-Hospice-from-Hospice-Extremists.html

Who are the extremists that have taken over the hospice and hijacked it for their own agenda? From the St. Petersburg Times and other documents, it is clear that the extremists who have taken over this hospice are Mary Labyak and Teresa Craig. Mary Labyak is the C.E.O. of the hospice and President of $uncoast $olutions. Teresa Craig is C.E.O. of the for-profit experimental venture, $uncoast $olutions, that is designed to make money for those on its payroll. $uncoast $olutions is not an altruistic charitable undertaking at all: it's all about money!

Mary Labyak is leading this hospice (and the industry) in a direction which furthers her extremist agenda in making hospice a place to kill the disabled! Mary Labyak is recognized as a leader of the national hospice industry, asked to speak at national conventions about hospice by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and other groups. Do these organizations question her extremist agenda of killing patients in hospice? Not one bit! Not one statement from these national groups has condemned the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast for wrongly admitting Terri Schiavo into hospice! That is very, very troubling, to say the least.

They are willing to violate the federal law that forbids admitting non-terminal patients into hospice.

Labyak admits that more than a million dollars has been diverted from the hospice to the for-profit $uncoast $olutions! She tries to explain it away by saying it is a "loan," but nobody has informed us of any loan declared on the books of the for-profit $uncoast $olutions. We would like to see it if it exists. Everybody knows that if a loan is taken out, a contract is written defining the terms of the loan, commonly with interest to be paid. When the public donated to this hospice, they did not intend for their donations to be used for profit! Not to the tune of more than a millions dollars, which is what Labyak admits. The class action lawsuit and hospice's own internal documents show that over $7 million has been diverted over the past few years to the for-profit. Labyak admits diverting the funds.

*****hope the source url can validate this next comment*****
When Mary Labyak drives around in her $ 31,000 (THIRTY-ONE THOU$AND DOLLAR) dark blue "free to her" 2003 Chrysler Sebring luxury convertible (paid for by donations to the hospice) visiting those clubs or sits around in her posh Condo, does she worry about the staff who may be overworked? Is she overly concerned about services to the patients? Does Teresa Craig worry about the staff or patient services when she drives around in her $30,000 (THIRTY THOU$AND DOLLAR) gold "free to her" Chrysler Sebring luxury convertible (paid for by donations to the hospice)? Does Mike Bell worry about the staff or patient services when he drives around in his $ 30,000 (THIRTY THOU$AND DOLLAR) silver "free to him" Chrysler Sebring luxury convertible (paid for by donations to the hospice)? Do they have a conscience that might bother them knowing that donations to the hospice pay for their luxury cars and other perks and bonuses? Obviously not.

They know that while big bonuses are being doled out over at $uncoast, while they get their perks like ("free" to them) luxury cars and bonuses (declared or hidden), those funds used to pay for their perks are not available to pay for services to the patients. They also know that staff salaries had been frozen for the past few years (oh yes, they finally gave them a small raise).
