Terri's husband isn't the enemy, guardian says
Orlando Sentinel ^ | February 25, 2005 | Mike Thomas

Posted on 03/19/2005 9:18:52 AM PST by EveningStar

Wolfson's report is based on court files, depositions, medical records and interviews with everyone involved.

That said, I begin with the most explosive allegation:

Did Michael try to kill Terri?

Wolfson laughs. "No!"

-----

Wolfson's report states that in the four years after her collapse, Michael "had insistently held to the premise that Theresa could recover and the evidence is incontrovertible that he gave his heart and soul to her treatment and care . . . In late autumn of 1990, following months of therapy and testing and formal diagnoses of persistent vegetative state with no evidence of improvement, Michael took Theresa to California, where she received an experimental thalamic stimulator implant in her brain. Michael remained in California caring for Theresa during a period of several months."

Says Wolfson now: "Michael was adoring of her. One nursing home complained he was hostile and abusive of the staff in championing her care. She was immaculately kept. In 13 years, she never had one bedsore."

I believe this was due to the fact the parents were the ones closely supervising her care! Leave to a liberal rag to paint the murdering hubby into a Champion!

Mary Schindler's Plea
Mary Schindler, Terri Schiavo's mother, stood before a microphone moments ago.

In that building behind me my daughter is starving to death...

We laugh together. We cry together. We smile together. We talk together...

Please, please, please, save my little girl.

So the guardian is on Michael's side? Sad. Shouldn't the guardian be on Terri's side?

Not her enemy? I don't see anyone else trying to kill her.

Well, aside from the judge and the lawyer.

You'd think so, wouldn't you?

It shows that this whole procedure has been corrupt, and the fix was in from the start.

If he'd been fair and impartial he'd never have been appointed guardian.

Today is the feast day of Saint Joseph. During a terrible famine in Sicily, the people prayed to him to deliver them from drought and famine, and their prayers were answered. Saint Joseph is the patron of families, fathers, people in doubt, social justice, travellers, and those who are dying. http://www.ewtn.com/Devotionals/novena/joseph.htm

It is beyond me why the thug just doesn't walk away from it all---especailly with all those millions he has been offered. What harm is there in turning her over to her parents? Something doesn't sound right.

So a guy who has actually SEEN Terri, and examined Terri and has been hired by both sides of the case, who knows this case intimately, is not someone you can believe, is that what you're saying? Are you sure you want to leave that on the record?

Let me guess: The clinic had enough escorts today, so they let you off so you could post some pro-killing stuff here?

Is that really necessary? Where do you get the scones to make a charge like that?

Hildy for your enlightenment, I suggest you read 1 Corinthians 13... especially verse 8. My point, is that Michael quit on Terri. No matter how you look at it he gave up, and even though married took up with another woman and had children by her. If he still loves Terri, but does not have the stuff to keep on keepin' on in his care for her, then divorce her and let her parents, who have not quit on her, continue to nurse their daughter.

Don't waste one minute on people like that. I actually enjoy when they do that because it does show that there is no basis for their arguments so they resort to attack. I view it as a win.

Anyway we think you have a financial motive in this.

Because otherwise we'd have to think something about you that doesn't go well with Christianity. We prefer to give you the benefit of the doubt.

Without stating my opinion about this matter, what is unfortunate to see is how many opinions are being offered by people who haven't paid attention to some of the nitty gritty facts.

I've seen freepers espouse that Michael is after the insurance money. And yet according to court papers, Michael formally offered to divest himself entirely of his financial interests in the guardianship estate.

Freepers have said that Terri has not been seen by a neurologist. That's patently untrue.

It's been stated she did not have a CAT scan. That's patently untrue.

It's been stated that Michael refused to let a priest visit her. That's patently untrue. Some of them have given interviews after their visit with Terri and just yesterday she was given last rites.

Terri's sister stated on CNN last night that they don't even know if Terri had a heart attack. Court documentation by numerous doctors provides evidence that Terri did have a heart attack. Her sister denied that Terri had bulimia but that is the very basis under which Michael won a malpractice suit.

Some freepers have said that only Michael was told about Terri's comments that she never wanted to be kept alive with machines and tubes. Yet court testimony indicates her best friend, Joan, also heard Terri say that.

Court testimony provided by members of the Schindler family included very personal statements about their desire and intention to ensure that Theresa remain alive . . . at any and all costs. Nearly gruesome examples were given, eliciting agreement by family members that in the event Theresa should contract diabetes and subsequent gangrene in each of her limbs, they would agree to amputate each limb and would then, were she to be diagnosed with heart disease, perform open-heart surgery. Within the testimony, as part of the hypothetical presented, Schindler family members stated that even if Theresa had told them of her intention to have artificial nutrition withdrawn, they would not do it.

This is a deplorable situation that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. And it's been upsetting to see absolute lies stated as fact, over and over again on FR. If any good can come of this, it is that people will think more carefully about signing Living Wills and making their intentions clear.

The last I heard reported, was that the video

obtain, and that the video is 4 years old.

Is that correct?

When one side can't argue effectively without mis-stating the facts, there's something drastically wrong.
