Eine deutsche Stiftung hat den Eltern der amerikanischen Koma-Patientin Schiavo angeboten, ihre Tochter in der Bundesrepublik betreuen zu lassen. Es sei wichtig, dass sie die USA verlasse. Die Hellmonds-Stiftung will die amerikanische Koma-Patientin Terri Schiavo zur weiteren Versorgung nach Deutschland holen. Wie der Gründer der Stiftung zu Gunsten von Menschen im Wachkoma, der Wismarer Unternehmer Gerhard Hellmonds, am Mittwoch der Nachrichtenagentur dpa sagte, wäre eine auf solche Patienten spezialisierte Krankenschwester bereit, Schiavo kostenlos zu betreuen.

The clinic was founded by entrepreneur Gerhard Hellmonds to secure treatment and care for his wife who has since passed and now specializes in such care to patients in the vegetative state. A specially trained nurse offered to care for Terri free of charge at the clinic.
Boy, Terri's fight for life is making waves all over the globe!
I'd never have thought that of all places, GERMANY would have the rescuers and AMERICA the nazis.
Nice offer. I wonder if her parents would accept, presuming the tube goes back in in time....
Very nice of them, but unfortunately, her husband wants her dead so her abuse cannot be investigated.
agreed, our socialists are the worst.
German kindheartedness ping!
Germany's justice system wouldn't have ordered a woman to be killed due to 'hearsay'. I doubt this would happen anywhere but in Florida where the judge is legally blind - literally.
They could try all of the rehabilitation they desire there, without Greer or Michael hanging over their heads. In either case, I will not rest easy for Terri until Bush takes her into protective custody and she is way from that Hospice and Michael.
Someone please explain the the Germans (who wanted Kerry to win) that it is the conservatives that voted for Bush that want to save Terry, and the lefties that wanted Kerry to win that don't...
They cant believe this - We treat animals better than this.
What is worse is what it will do to our credibility overseas when we talk about freedom and human rights.
This is horrible.
The World's Superpower and Champion of Human Rights around the globe is starving and dehydrating a disabled woman to death and underage children who bring her water are being handcuffed and arrested.
Does that sum it up? Did I miss anything?
So what if Indonesia or Thailand has 6 year olds working in factories - at least they dont starve and dehydrate their disabled citizens.
If China decides to put a bullet in the brain of all their retarded school children tomorrow, what can we say or do?
Next time we want to whine because Libya or Egypt is on the United Nations human rights council we better learn to bite our lip.
Anyway, there is your perspective from over here. I will try to get more on the local reaction later this morning and report on my blog about it.
People over here also want to save her.
Easily explained. The majority of Germans do not know or understand American politics and they do not know or understand Bush's policies or strategies. The media there is left-leaning as MSM in North America is and politicians took advantage of anti-american anti-Bush sentiment for their own political gain. But let's be honest. If it wasn't for the new media and alot of grassroots efforts by concerned citizens, we wouldn't even know about Terri's fate.
This hospice owner lives in Bavaria, which is the most conservative part of Germany. Unlike many of his countrymen, he may not have wanted Kerry.
Thanks for posting that from SE Asia. We are dumbfounded here, too. Reeling with disbelief. Aghast at the intransigence of the Law of the Land that would torture this poor woman. And arrest CHILDREN for taking her water. It is terrible. Do tell them it is the people who voted for Kerry who are wanting this.
I fear the courts and the judiciary that hides behind their cloaks. They have way way too much power in this country. Things need to change or we'll end up in a judicial dictatorship.
ahh good ol Bavaria, the German Texas. I loved it there.
We live in an amazing world! It is particularly ironic because Terri Schiavo is of German ancestry, with her maiden name (Schindler) being the same as that of the man who saved hundreds of Jews from unjust murder in Hitler's concentration camps.
