A mentally disabled woman whose court ordered starvation-execution began Friday attempted to contradict her estranged husband's claim that she wants to die hours before her feeding tube was disconnected, an eyewitness is claiming.
Barbara Weller, an attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents, told reporters Friday afternoon that during her visit earlier in the day she told Ms. Schiavo:
"Terri, if you would just say, 'I want to live,' - all of this will be over."
According to pro-life activist Randall Terry, who recounted the scene to radio host Sean Hannity, Schiavo tried desperately to repeat Weller's words.
"'I waaaaannt . . .' Schiavo allegedly said, in a prolonged yell that had police stationed nearby running into her hospice room.
"She just started yelling, 'I waaaannt, I waaaannt,'" Terry said, according to Weller's account.
At that point police ejected Weller, he said.
Whoa. Hold on. I thought she was brain dead.
SOMEbody around there's brain dead, but it just might not be Terri.
Trrri is neither brain dead nor mentally disabled...shes just a lump that that b@stard husband of hers gave throw away at will
Probably the cucumber she married.
Terri is not brain dead at this point. Nobody could ever assert she is.
"Whoa. Hold on. I thought she was brain dead."
Nope. Just her husband and the courts.
Does the attorney have this on tape?
You have to be a devoutly Roman Catholic, faithful husband like Michael, or a reasonable, honest judge like Greer to "know" the true intentions of Terri.
There is no doubt in my mind that as Michael Schiavo watched the press coverage of Scotty Peterson's sentencing this week, he was thinking, "What an amateur."
Not sure, but this was was first reported on Free Republic here:
If this is indeed even true, what makes you think she was trying to say that she wanted to live?
And with less detail here:
A friend of mine heard this on Hannity also. She said the report stated that many people heard her screaming like this. Any witnesses coming forward to verify?
Because she was responding to a request to speak up or forever hold her peace
Proverbs 24:11 [KJV] If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
24:12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
Yeah. On video tape?
I hope that's sarcasm! =P
