In emails to LifeNews.com and public posts on her web site, Maxam also made it clear she has contempt for other pro-life news sources that cover the Terri Schiavo saga. It appears Maxam wants a stranglehold on reporting on Terri and the debate that still exists about euthanasia that received national prominence because of her plight.
The Schindlers and everyone else in the pro-life community understand that Terri's death was about much more than Terri and that is why they have decided to start a day of remembrance for her. It's not about "investigative journalism" or "getting even" or making money, it's about sparing others the tragedy they endured.
We are in this for the cause. People like Terri Schiavo deserve to live. When their right to life is abrogated by abortion, euthanasia or embryonic stem cell research, whether some people like it or not, LifeNews.com will tell the story that the mainstream media often refuses to report or covers up with biased or inaccurate stories.
As the celebration of our Lord's birth approaches, I am reminded of how He so eloquently carried on the Jewish tradition of "telling stories" and I think that is what those who reported have done. They told us Terri's story, she became real to us all, she became more than a statistic, more than an anonymous victim of the culture of death, she became the face of hope and passion.
The timing is fitting as we recall, the event ending Terri's life matched apace with Easter, Holy week, and with sometimes incredible parallels.
