The Empire Journal used them again today as you know. Maybe you could post a vanity about it? I bet we could get some good leads real quick.

I agree with you. It was an excellent interview. We need help for Terru from everyone -- the situation is too serious for us to pick and choose. Terri case is not a pro-life vs pro-choice or a right-to-die issue. It goes far beyond these.

Terri is Catholic and left no living will. If she had felt strongly about dying, she would have made one. Furthermore, I can't imagine who would want to be starved to death -- it's a horrible way to die.

It is also scary that we can be killed on merely the word of someone who hates us and the whim of a judge if we become disabled.

In this case there is also an incredible amount of evidence of general corruption and disregard of laws.

Dehyrated is worse, and since Michael forbids water as well as food...

Stiil, another thing I wish courts could consider (though if they looked at anything reasonably, all of this would be a non-issue) is whether Terri's wishes would be applicable in this particular situation.

Even if Terri would generally prefer to die if she were incapacitated to the degree Michael is alleging, I don't think her desire to die would be so strong that she would want her loved ones dragged through to ensure that it was carried out. It would be one thing for her to wish to die if her circumstances were such that her live was causing nobody any pleasure and hastening her death would ease her loved ones' grief; it is quite another to suggest that she would wish to die when her loved ones want to take care of her and would gain happiness from doing so.

Do you happen to have the link to the website where O'Reilly had the interview with the woman who was wrongly diagnosed (like Terri) as having PVS?

I read that fantastic transcript a long time ago, & can't seem to find it again.

Don't go thru too much trouble, but if you can find it readily, I would appreciate it.

Thanks

No, I don't have it. Maybe someone else here has it. Seems to me someone posed sections of it here on FR. Just wondering if she had a book or an article published.

I will fax on Tuesday. It should be for any and all citizens and residents of the State of Florida though.

Try this:
Please do your best to save the vets, retirees, and others who have made themselves wards of retirement centers throughout Florida from being starved and dehydrated like Terri Schiavo, which will happen as a result of this precedent setting ruling, giving her fewer rights than a pet in the State of Florida.

Probably not enough whereas’s and heretofore’s, but the following is easy enough for any 7th grade student to understand, it protects all citizens, including illegal immigrants, legal immigrants, children, and disabled. It will suffice until a right-to-die law can be properly drawn, which should include the fact that the person must sign and it must be notarized that the person wishes to have assistance in their own deaths. This should not include starvation/dehydration/failure to provide medical care. In Oregon, no spouse, no guardian can make that decision for the person. If they don’t sign it themselves it doesn’t happen. And even so, only 1% of the decedents in Oregon have availed themselves of the right-to-die law.




Whereas it has been found to be in the best interests of the citizens and people of the State of Florida, it is hereby ruled that no citizen or person, regardless of race, creed, disability, status of health, standing in the community, or even one convicted of a capital crime, may be caused a death by starvation and/or dehydration or suffer abuse by neglect of medical care.

Guidelines: Anyone causing a citizen or resident of the State of Florida death due to starvation and/or dehydration and/or abuse by neglect of medical care shall be charged with felony first degree murder. Sentencing guidelines shall include a recommendation of 41 years of confinement in a State Penitentiary (minimum) with confinement for life as the maximum penalty. There is to be no death penalty consideration.
