After the whole world watched the courts mandate the slow starvation of Terri, how can this mother allow that to happen to her child? It has not even been a year since this event happened to Lauren. There is no living will so we have only her mother’s word that Lauren said she would not want to live in this situation. IMO, we should always err on the side of life because God is in control and miracles happen EVERY day. God bless this earthly father for trying to protect the life of his little girl!

Be prepared to hear that she is a heroin addict and therefore “doesn’t deserve” to live.

Wow. Everyone should watch the video linked in the article.

If you don't see the link, I've re-posted it here.

This is a beautiful girl. She is only brain damaged, not a "vegetable" (whatever that's supposed to mean). She looks like many other brain damaged patients I've seen -- who did slowly recover.

I can't believe we have sunk so low as to allow execution of persons who are merely disabled.

If the argument didn’t fly in Florida, I have a hard time believing it will fare any better in Delaware.

As in the Terri Schiavo case, physicians have been quick to label Lauren as having a persistent vegetative state -- something Terri's family called dehumanizing and medically inaccurate as patients have recovered from it.

I'm not a medical expert, but yes, they have seemingly been quick to label Lauren as having a persistent vegetative state. Although the following article doesn't mention a coma, firefighter Donald Herbert was evidently in such a state for about 10 years before he woke up.

The plight of Lauren Richardson has now reached the media spotlight and Terri's family have joined the efforts to save her. This is now the Terri Daily thread for the month as we approach the anniversary of Terri's death. I did some posting about Lauren on our January thread about Javona Peters and will be reposting here. This latest came out a couple of hours ago and I excerpted a few salient points.

................................

WILMINGTON -- The two attorneys who were on opposing sides in the 2005 Terri Schiavo fight had the same advice for the parents of Lauren Richardson, now in the same situation as Schiavo.

Stop now.

Get away from the courts, get into a room together and try to work out your differences before it is too late.

"If there is one thing I learned from the Schiavo case, any way other than litigation is a better way to resolve this," said George J. Felos, an attorney who represented Michael Schiavo.

"I urge these people ... not to look to the court but to work this out themselves, before their positions harden and before things get said and things get done to make it impossible to talk," said Pat Anderson, an attorney who represented the Schindlers, Terri Schiavo's parents.

~Snip~

Anderson said the case is "eerily" similar to Schiavo's, a Florida case where Schiavo's husband maintained that his wife would not have wanted to live in a vegetative state on life support.

Schiavo left no written instructions and Schiavo's parents, the Schindlers, opposed removing a feeding tube.

The two sides fought in Florida courts for seven years and gained national attention before the U.S. Supreme Court let stand the rulings of state judges, allowing Michael Schiavo to remove the feeding tube in March 2005.

~Snip~

Anderson said her great fear during the Schiavo case was "that all those people who looked at the television screen [and saw the video of Terri Schiavo] and said, 'I wouldn't want to live like that,' might live to regret it because those words might come back at them," she said.

"Those sort of casual remarks would be elevated to an oral directive," she said-- exactly what happened in this case, "If the mother's testimony is accurate."

Anderson, the Schindlers' attorney, said the two cases point to what she sees as "a huge societal issue."

"Why are we executing disabled people because they are disabled? These patients are not dying of any terminal disease. If they die by removal of a feeding tube, they in effect have been executed because their brain has been damaged."

Anderson said if the family of Lauren Richardson does not take her advice and work this out among themselves, outside a court, "Hang onto your socks, it will be a nasty fight ... Everyone is going to lose."

Terri Schiavo's brother, Bobby Schindler, who now helps run the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation Inc., agreed.

A story about Lauren Richardson was recently posted on the foundation's Web site.

"Certainly, communicate, try to work this out," he said. "Do anything to keep it out of the courts."

At the same time, Schindler, who had been in contact with randy Richardson, was pessimistic, saying that they tried to do that with Michael Schiavo in 2002.

He said that the only compromises that Michael would agree to all ended with the "killing" of his sister. "We would never compromise like that," he said.

In the Richardson case, Schindler said, "Anything short of caring for the girl, I don't know what can be accomplished."

On Saturday, Randy Richardson said "I am willing to do anything possible to avoid death being imposed on my daughter, mediate, whatever it is. My feeling, my concern is my daughter be given the chance to life."

Towers could not be reached.

Halt court war, Schiavo lawyers advise

If we are going down this road (actively killing people by denying them food/water) then I suggest we just admit it and euthanize them humanely as we do our pets.

Wow. Imagine your own Mom wanting to pull the plug on you. Very, very sad.

Please “ping” me to new developments, if you continue to post them. Thanks! :)

As someone noted on Stanek’s blog:

Only yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court stayed the execution of James Callahan, a convicted rapist and murderer in Alabama, due to concerns lethal injection may be cruel and unusual punishment. How can people have such schizophrenic opinions on life and death?

http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSN3135451720080201

And yet another excellent comment:

What reasons are given for the mom wanting to abort her out of the womb daughter?

It seems very suspicious to me that an 18 year old express something regarding a death wish. The evidence given is heresay given by a prejudiced witness, the mom who wants her killed.

The spark of life should never be snuffed out by another human.

And the mom’s attorney, sounds like a pro-abort twister of truth.

I believe God allows these types of things to happen, as terrible as they are, to test the church.

Where are you church? Where’s the roar of a lion against this obvious abomination? Hey all you lukewarm Christians, where’s your concern about this girl’s eternal soul?

Can’t you see that this stuff, along with the abortion battle, is just another front in the war for life. God is watching to see what we will do and we are all accountable to Him.

I for one state and stand for this women’s life. I publicly decalre that starving her or dehydrating her is an act of the most heinoue kind of murder.

Where are you NOW, and NARAL and Amanda Marcotte? Here’s a born woman who is trying to stay alive. You say we pro-lifers are not concerned about women that are already alive. I mean, can’t we even come together on this one?

Lauren no longer uses a ventilator or other breathing apparatus and is not on artificial life support

Oh, well, all the more reason to rush in and torture her to dead. /s

“She’s committed no crime”

Well, yes, technically she did.

Whether that means she should starve to death is something else entirely.

The video should be shown widely. Not just to further her cause but to kids to show them the consequences of heroin.

Very sad.

calling human beings...”vegetables”.

Just in time for Easter. Again.

Absolutely disgusting.

Heartfelt prayers for this young lady.
