I was just thinking: if so many FL doctors were not as corrupt as their lawyers, then there would be no one willing to remove the tube.

To: Ohioan from Florida

just ran across this, too:

TALLAHASSEE, FL- There is a surprising last minute filing in the Theresa Schindler-Schiavo case from an unexpected source.

The Florida Governor and other parties while they have not done everything to the public’s satisfaction in regards to saving a disabled, purposely-denied-from-rehabilitation human life they have contributed somewhat and have introduced some delays which may prove useful in giving other parties enough time to go before the courts as well as the public opinion.

Now that this matter is coming right down to the wire other parties such as Gordon Watts have come before the courts. Although, there are some perhaps who think that Mr. Watts doesn't have a right to come before the courts so far they have been proved wrong because it is the courts that have allowed Watts' filing to remain alive since October 2003. Even as the Governor's spirited case has been dismissed and denied by the courts thereby denying due process at all levels in efforts to bring to light all the facts, Mr. Watts has now made a last minute filing which may prove to be one of Theresa’s saving graces.

On the parents’ side the Gibbs law firm has just recently made arguments to the court that Theresa Schindler-Schiavo has been denied representation in court. However, Mr. Watts made similar arguments several years ago and so is continuing to petition the courts along said lines. Seeing that Theresa’s life has been put into immediate jeopardy (in regards to the threat of Judge Greer possibly lifting a 5 p.m. stay today (Wednesday) that prevents removal of her feeding device which provides food and fluids into the GI tract by simple gravity flow, Mr. Watts has made a last minute filing which it is hoped will save Theresa from the threat of being heinously and barbarically killed via dehydration/starvation. Let it be noted that it would be illegal to starve and dehydrate an animal let alone a serial killer on death row and that the whole nation would be up in arms if anyone threatened to do this to a pig or said human. To say that subjecting Theresa to starvation/dehydration violates state, federal and international laws would be an understatement. What is happening here in Florida is morally, ethically, and philosophically reprehensible and violates all standards of decency in regards to human rights and a civilized society.

Although the family’s attorneys and the Florida Governor have made some good legal arguments only Mr. Watts has petitioned the court concerning Theresa’s illegal detention at the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, Inc. based on the fact that she is not terminally ill and it is illegal according to state and federal laws for her to be placed into and detained in hospice. Mr. Watts has used habeas corpus as the vehicle to bring this argument. As it stands Theresa has been illegally detained at Hospice Woodside for close to 5 years.

Those who have done research on the internet have found that the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, Inc. and a bioethicist / end-of-life / right-to-die network (Partnership for End-of-Life Care) from Miami University headed by Ken Goodman and others from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center (Kathy Cerminara and Michael Masinter, so-called disability, right-to-die, advocates with connections to the ACLU) has firmly entrenched itself with the Florida Office of Elder Affairs, the recently scandal-ridden Department of Health, and on up to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Miami University ethics head Ken Goodman did a national interview on PBS in November of 2003 in which he said that Theresa Schiavo was permanently unconscious for over 13 years and had no brain. The evidence shown in videos on national television news networks and across the internet as well as regular visits in-person visits by Terri’s parents, siblings, their attorneys and priests prove otherwise. To their shame the judges and governor have failed to meet with Theresa. There is also evidence that Michael Schiavo suppressed a bone scan in which he may be responsible for 13 fractures sustained by Theresa Schiavo which included a broken femur and a broken back which dated to the time of the “incident” which occurred on February 25, 1990. Michael became aware of this X-Ray bone scan which was performed on Theresa in March of 1991 for a closed head injury yet he failed to bring in the authorities. Any other person would have gone ballistic upon finding out the results of such a bone scan. This implicates Michael Schiavo as having some sort of culpability for Theresa’s original “accident”.

On another note, outside of the court arena, there is a growing effort by persons coming from many and various backgrounds in the realm of internet blogs which has grown to over 150 blogs seeking to providing factual information in this case which the mainstream media refuses to address or which the mainstream media continuously misrepresents. Another notable internet site called FreeRepublic.com also has been at the forefront of efforts by others to get justice for Theresa Schindler-Schiavo since at least August of 2003 and has served as another meeting place for people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs to meet, exchange information and coordinate efforts to wake up not only the mainstream press but to also bring wider attention in the public domain to the her plight and the plight of other disabled and vulnerable people. A few notable internet news sites which have been especially good at getting factual information out in regards to Theresa’s plight are http://worldnetdaily.com and the up-and-coming http://www.theempirejournal.com from New York. In the blogging effort the URL for the main blog under which all the others 150+ blogs are joined is http://www.blogsforterri.com/ and there is of course http://www.terrisfight.org

In conclusion it is hoped that the combined team efforts of many parties will bear fruit and ultimately get justice for the disabled and vulnerable of the State of Florida and our nation, including Theresa Schindler-Schiavo. This is a call for all media outlets and people of great humanity who care to help avert Theresa’s murder, to demand that she be given protective custody and that the perpetrators who have been attempting her murder be investigated. The Florida Governor is the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the State of Florida as well as the head of Department and Children and Families and he needs to bring the abuse of Theresa to a halt. Others are calling for the intervention of the President and the Pope.

Wonderful news but what concerns me is, what if the judge rules at 5 o clock that the tube be pulled. If they do the procedure will we be able to get a judge to overule and doctor to reinsert the tube before the end of the weekend?

Florida Judge Extends Stay in Terri Schiavo Feeding Tube Case
Feb. 23 (Bloomberg) -- A Florida judge extended a ruling that prevents Terri Schiavo's husband from removing the feeding tube that is keeping his severely brain damaged wife alive.

The ruling by Judge George Greer in Clearwater, Florida, allows Terri Schiavo's parents to continue for 48 hours to seek legal remedies to overturn an appellate court order in the case that allowed Michael Schiavo to seek the removal of the tubes.

Michael Schiavo and his wife's parents have been battling since 1994 over whether Terri Schiavo, 41, should be kept alive. Her parents, Robert and Mary Schindler, say their daughter is able to communicate and may improve with therapy.

Well, Michael R. Schiavo, a popular Clearwater nurse, objects. Is anyone surprised at this man's popularity among his neighbors? In an earlier generation, people would have shunned him.


As far as the cost of the feeding tube, there is no cost per se so long as the tube is washed out with clear water after each administration of a nutrititional supplement given two or three times a day.

I'm guessing you think it's ok for the government to allow a man to deprive his estranged brain-damaged wife of food and water, which IS AGAINST FLORIDA LAW. Or am I mistaken? It's just a guess. No offense meant.

The best way to control feelings of hatred toward someone who is doing or enabling evil is to pray for their sincere repentance.

Judge Greer is in great danger of judgement.

Michael needs to be charged with Bigamy:

http://usmarriagelaws.com/search/united_states/polygamy/index.shtml
Bigamy: Crime of marrying during the continuance of a lawful marriage. Bigamy is not committed if a prior marriage has been terminated by a divorce or a decree of nullity of marriage. In the United States if a husband or wife is absent and unheard of for seven (or in some states five) years and not known to be alive, he or she is presumed dead, and remarriage by the other spouse is not bigamous. It is not necessarily a defense to a charge of bigamy that the offending party believed in good faith that he was divorced or that his previous marriage was not lawful.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1878 that plurality of wives (polygamy), as originally permitted by the Mormon religion, violated criminal law and was not defensible as an exercise of religious liberty. The Latter-day Saints renounced polygamy in 1890, but the practice has persisted among some, although it has been rarely prosecuted.

All 50 states have statutes against bigamy (multiple licensed marriages). In most states, bigamy is a felony.

The following states have laws against cohabitation.

Alabama
Alaska
Arkansas
Florida
Massachusetts
Mississippi
Nebraska
North Carolina
South Carolina
Virginia
West Virginia

798.01. Living in open adultery
Whoever lives in an open state of adultery shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083. Where either of the parties living in an open state of adultery is married, both parties so living shall be deemed to be guilty of the offense provided for in this section.

http://www.sodomy.org/laws/florida/cohabitation.html



Florida laws prohibit living together, sex outside of marriage and sodomy (defined as "any unnatural and lascivious act")

Well that's what I wanted to know. If it's against Florida law then where's the problem? I've been following this case here and there and don't really understand what the holdup is on the final decision. If the law says that life decisions rest with the husband, than the decision is his. Why do her parents have standing at all?

No offense taken, but if a legislature has written a law that life decisions rest with the husband, then the people (government) have granted him the authority to make this decision.

This is why I'm confused. I don't understand what all these stays will accomplish. A final decision will have to be made eventually.
