"Fear Greer". (since then, Greer's lived in fear.) Nothing's following him except his conscience. He could not enjoy the view of the Clearwater Bay because he dare not face his desk away from the door before he retired. The man who was blind couldn't look out his window.

It seems fair to me. He refused to see Terri and she never got her broken wheelchair fixed. Why wasn't Greer impeached for all the suffering he caused Terri BEFORE HE MURDERED HER?

It wasn't just the Order to kill her.

Day Five

ABC, CBS and NBC Evening News Coverage Favors Those Who Would Stop Feeding Disabled Woman

March 22, 2005, Day 5 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. The next two-weeks, Terri's Network will post stories of the events that occurred on each of those 13 horrific days. We offer this not only in regard for Terri's memory, but as a reminder that at this moment, countless others are suffering slow, agonizing deaths in hospices, nursing homes, and hospitals in America and around the world.

From March 22, 2005 (Media Research Center) - A new Media Research Center study finds the three broadcast network evening newscasts have tilted their recent coverage of the Terri Schiavo case in ways that bolster her husband Michael’s arguments that the severely disabled woman is in an irreversible vegetative state and had clearly expressed a desire to die. But network reporters have attempted to debunk arguments made by her parents — namely that some doctors believe she could be helped and that Mrs. Schiavo, a Catholic, would not want her feeding tube disconnected.

Day Six

U.S. Judge Rejects Feeding-Tube Appeal in Schiavo Case

March 23, 2005, Day 6 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schindler Schiavo. Over the next two-weeks, Terri's Network will post stories of the events that occurred on each of those 13 horrific days. We offer this not only in regard for Terri's memory, but as a reminder that as we speak, countless people are suffering slow, agonizing deaths in hospices, nursing homes, and hospitals in America and around the world.

From March 23, 2005 (New York Times) - A federal judge refused Tuesday to order the re-insertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, denying an emergency request from the brain-damaged Florida woman's parents. The ruling by U.S. District Judge James Whittemore (pictured) came after feverish action by President George W. Bush and Congress on legislation allowing her contentious case to be reviewed by federal courts. The judge said the 41-year-old woman's parents had not established a "substantial likelihood of success" at trial on the merits of their arguments. The tube was disconnected Friday on the orders of a state judge in Florida. (continue reading . . .)

Schiavo Parents Appeal to U.S. Supreme Court

March 24, 2005, Day 7 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo.

From March 24, 2005 (CNN) - A lawyer for Mary and Bob Schindler - who are fighting to have their daughter Terri Schiavo's feeding tube reinserted - filed an appeal late Wednesday with the U.S. Supreme Court, which in the past has refused to hear the case. (continue)

Day Eight

A Turning Point in The Culture War

March 25, 2005, Day 8 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo.

We offer this not only in regard for Terri's memory, but as a reminder that as we speak, countless people are suffering slow, agonizing deaths in hospices, nursing homes, and hospitals in America and around the world.

From March 25, 2005 (By David Limbaugh) - Terri Schiavo's medical condition is in dispute, she left no living will, we don't know her present wishes, and yet the courts are ordering that her husband has the right to kill her? This outrage simply couldn't happen in a culture that considered human life sacred. "Objection," you say. (continue reading . . .)

Demographics were all over the place. MOre would have kept coming but Jeb Bush announced that he was going in there to get her so many people turned around. Jeb lied.

Jeb's not ever got my vote.

The state troopers finally blocked the streets off - nobody could get in. People there would hesitant to leave cuz they would not be allowed back in.

I think we were the first test run for how to deal with domestic terrorists although the terrorists were the ones killing Terri, not us.

March 26, 2005, Day 9 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo.

From March 26, 2005 (by Steven Ertelt) - With Easter on Sunday and Terri Shaivo’s life hanging in the balance, her parents say that Terri should be able to receive communion. The Schindler family are active Catholics and Terri went to Catholic schools while growing up.

Paul O’Donnell, a Franciscan monk who is helping the Schindler family, says Bob and Mary Schindler want her estranged husband Michael to authorize Terri to have communion.

The decision is important to Terri’s family as it could be the last time she has communion before she dies.

South Dakota 3-day abortion waiting period now law

PIERRE, South Dakota, March 22, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – South Dakota’s new pro-life Republican governor signed into law Tuesday legislation that requires a three-day waiting period for women seeking abortion.

“I think everyone agrees with the goal of reducing abortion by encouraging consideration of other alternatives,” said Gov. Dennis Daugaard in a statement. “I hope that women who are considering an abortion will use this three-day period to make good choices.”

The law (HB 1217) is aimed at preventing mothers from feeling coerced or pressured into having an abortion, and requires that women have a one-on-one session with a crisis pregnancy center counselor during the 72-hour waiting period.

The mother would have to certify that she obtained counseling, and learned about the assistance and education available to help her “keep and care for her child,” prior to undergoing an abortion.

While nearly half of U.S. states have 24-hour waiting periods for abortion, South Dakota is the first state to make a three-day waiting period. The law is set to take effect July 1.

The American Civil Liberties Union of South Dakota, and Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota have announced that they will sue the state of South Dakota over the law. Planned Parenthood is the sole remaining operator of an abortion facility in the state.

Supporters of the legislation have pledged to raise private funds to finance a constitutional defense.

Baby Joseph Updates

Words cannot express how happy I am for Baby Joseph and his family.

Threads by Kaslin, NYer and me.

Baby Joseph gets tracheotomy

To join a Facebook page in support of the parents of Joseph Maraachli, click here.

ST. LOUIS, Missouri, March 21, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Joseph Maraachli, who had been set to have his ventilator removed against his parents’ wishes at an Ontario hospital last month, received a tracheotomy Monday morning and is doing well, says his family.

His parents, Moe Maraachli and Sana Nader, took Joseph to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri last Sunday after trying unsuccessfully to get him the simple procedure at his Ontario hospital, London Health Sciences Centre.

The surgery involves a slit in the throat to allow a breathing tube to be inserted into the airway.  The tube allows for suction of fluid out of the lungs, creates a safe and stable way to use a mechanical ventilator, and is more comfortable for the child.

The parents have been asking for this procedure in hopes that they could take Joseph home. The Maraachli’s daughter Zina died from a similar neurological disorder eight years ago, and in that case the family took her home after doctors performed the simple procedure.  They now want the same for Joseph.

In a statement today, Cardinal Glennon hospital said that Joseph is currently in the pediatric intensive care unit, where tracheotomy patients routinely spend 7 to 10 days following the procedure.

“After he is discharged from SSM Cardinal Glennon, Joseph will travel to Ranken Jordan - A pediatric specialty hospital in St. Louis before being transported to his family home in Windsor,” said the hospital. “It is our hope that this procedure will allow Joseph and his family the gift of a few more months together and that Joseph may be more comfortable with a permanent tracheotomy.

The statement concluded: “As with any of the children we help, our primary focus must remain on the patient and what is best in his or her individual circumstances. We ask that you keep Baby Joseph and his family in your prayers.”

Joseph was airlifted to the hospital Sunday night with the help of the U.S.-based Priests for Life, who are also covering Joseph’s U.S. medical expenses and his family’s accommodations.

Dr. Paul Byrne, a fifty-year veteran in the field of neonatology based in Ohio, told LSN last month that in his opinion Joseph should have had a tracheostomy “a long time ago.”  He also insisted that he has never seen a need to remove a child’s ventilator.  “If a baby has a disease process that’s so bad that they’re going to die, then they die on the ventilator anyway,” he explained.

The London hospital’s decision to remove Joseph’s ventilator against his parents’ wishes was backed up in January by the Ontario Consent and Capacity Board, and again on February 17th by the Ontario Superior Court.

Superior Court Justice Helen Rady’s decision was based on doctors’ testimony that he is in a permanent vegetative state with no brain stem reflex.  But the family has contested that claim, pointing to footage showing him flailing and reacting to tickling.

After the Superior Court ruling, the hospital had appeared set to remove Joseph’s ventilator on February 21st.  The move was delayed, however, when the family hired an expert lawyer with the financial backing of Canada’s Euthanasia Prevention Coalition.  Handelman was later replaced by Claudio Martini.

Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, has warned that Ontario is creating a system where doctors are authorized to force life and death decisions on patients.

In a blog post last week, he said the case emphasizes the need to reform a legal system in the province that favors hospitals over families in cases of disagreement over care.  “The law has a natural inequality that has resulted in a plethora of precedent setting cases that support the role of the doctor/hospital to make medical decisions against the wishes of the family. This needs to change,” he wrote.

Baby Joseph Is Going Home

Health Reform: A Canada court had ruled that under socialized medicine their baby must die in the hospital. Now he's in the U.S., getting the care his parents, not the bureaucrats, want.

Joseph Maraachli, who’d been set to have his ventilator removed against his parents’ wishes at an Ontario hospital last month, got a tracheotomy Monday morning and is doing well, his family says. The procedure was denied him under a system of medicine that may be coming to a hospital near you courtesy of ObamaCare.

His parents, Moe Maraachli and Sana Nader, took Joseph to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis on Sunday after trying unsuccessfully to get him the simple procedure at London Health Sciences Centre, a hospital in Ontario, Canada. Doctors report he is resting comfortably.

His parents will soon be able to take him home, which was their initial wish. No one should outlive his or her children. Thirteen-month-old Joseph has a neurodegenerative disease that doctors say leaves little hope for recovery. Nine years ago his parents lost an 18-month-old daughter to the same disease. What’s made the anguish of this Windsor, Ontario, family worse this time is that the parents have spent precious time battling courts and medical boards as to just how and where their son should die.

“He’s a human,” Moe Maraachli told Fox News. “He has a right to fight.”

But Ontario Superior Court Justice Helen Rady recently ordered the couple to agree to take Joseph off his ventilator. The court was upholding a decision already made by Ontario’s Consent and Capacity Board, which some here might call a death panel.

Baby Joseph baptized

March 23, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Baby Joseph Maraachli has now been baptized, according to Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life.

In an e-mail update about baby Joseph’s status, Fr. Pavone announced: “Baby Joseph was baptized just the other day, and Jerry Horn of our Priests for Life team is now his godfather.”

The past two weeks have been full of major developments for Joseph and his family. After being airlifted to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri last week, on Monday doctors at the hospital performed the tracheotomy that Joseph’s parents have been requesting all along.

According to a press release from the hospital, Joseph is currently in the pediatric intensive care unit, where he is expected to spend seven to ten days. After that he will be transferred to a pediatric specialty hospital in St. Louis, before going home.

These happenings mark a dramatic change from just one month ago, when the Ontario hospital where Joseph was being treated was prepared to remove his breathing tube against his parents’ wishes, with the support of a court decision.

Moe Maraachli, Joseph’s father, said in response to this week’s events: “It’s a miracle. My son now has freedom. I’m very happy. My wife and I will respect the second opinion from the hospital in St. Louis. We will accept it with all my heart because Joseph got his human right to get a chance to get a second opinion. When God wants to take his life He’ll take it and nobody can say ‘No’ to God.”

In the recent update, Fr. Pavone explained, “Let me assure you, none of us at Priests for Life is saying that Baby Joseph – or anyone else, for that matter – should be given every treatment no matter what. Nor are we imposing any specific treatment on the child.

“All we wanted to do was give the child reasonable care and provide the parents with a second opinion. Period. And thanks to you and the incredible support from pro-life activists all across the country, Baby Joseph got that chance!”

Fr. Pavone also said that medical expenses are expected to rise to as much as $150,000 during Joseph’s stay in the U.S. Priests for Life has offered to cover all of the medical expenses, and is asking for the support of donors to help foot the bill.

Godfather: Baby Joseph's baptism shows life's eternal destiny

Joseph Maraachli just after his baptism

.- The godfather of Baby Joseph Maraachli, whose fight for life has attracted international attention and support, says the terminally ill boy's recent baptism was a testimony to the eternal destiny of human life.

“It's a tremendous testimony to the sanctity of life,” said Jerry Horn, senior vice president of the Catholic pro-life ministry Priests For Life, who was Joseph's baptismal sponsor. “So many people worked together in concert to bring him here, for a purpose greater than we could anticipate.”

“We were doing what we could to save the life of a child – which is why we do what we do, in the pro-life movement,” Horn reflected.  “But God's plan is eternal, and it goes far beyond ours.”

The 13-month-old boy received the sacrament from a Catholic priest in St. Louis, Missouri on March 18, two days before receiving a tracheotomy on March 21.

Joseph suffers from a rare and usually fatal neurological disorder called Leigh Syndrome. With the help of the Catholic pro-life ministry Priests For Life, he was transferred to a Catholic pediatric hospital in St. Louis, Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, on March 13.

Prior to this, the boy was a tracheotomy at a hospital in Ontario, Canada, where doctors were planning to remove his feeding and breathing tubes. The doctors' refusal of care prompted comparisons to the 2005 Terri Schiavo case, and led to an outpouring of support from pro-life advocates.

Jerry Horn discussed Joseph's baptism with CNA on March 24, shortly after Priests For Life director Fr. Frank Pavone made the news public in a March 22 media release.

Horn spoke with a sense of awe, as he described how a boy who was considered unworthy of medical treatment, was able to receive an initiation into the supernatural life of sanctifying grace.

“In so many ways, God's plan was greater than ours. The fact that he was baptized into the Church was amazingly significant.” Joseph's baptism took place around 5 p.m., meaning that it occurred on the vigil of the March 19th feast day of St. Joseph.

“No matter what happens with Baby Joseph from this point forward, he has received the sacrament of baptism,” Horn said.

Dr. Paul Byrne, a pioneering neonatologist with almost five decades of experience, took the initiative to have Baby Joseph baptized. He said the baptism was “one of the most exciting things about taking care of Baby Joseph,” and noted that the same “holds true for all sick babies” who require baptism.

Over the course of several decades, Dr. Byrne has himself baptized many infants who were in danger of death. Catholic teaching holds that anyone, not just a priest, can baptize a child in cases of necessity, as long as water and the traditional Trinitarian formula are used with the correct intention.

In this case, however, Dr. Byrne sought out a local priest. He said it was “relatively easy to strike up the conversation with Joseph's father and mother,” Moe and Sana Maraachli, to obtain their permission for the baptism.

“The father said that he himself was Muslim, but the mother is Catholic,” explained Dr. Byrne. “The father said he wanted his son to be raised in the religion of his mother.”

Barring a medical miracle, Joseph is unlikely to reach the age at which most children receive the other sacraments. Dr. Byrne said it was a “special privilege” to participate in treatment to prolong Joseph's life, “when other people were determining that he should not live any longer.”

The greater privilege, however, was in helping Baby Joseph to receive the gift of God's grace in baptism.

“When a baby is baptized, they are absolutely pure,” he said. “It's so exciting to be a part of that.”

Beach Boys to Headline Second Terri Schiavo Benefit Concert

After country music star Randy Travis thrilled listeners at a concert last year to raise funds for the Terri Schiavo foundation, the Beach Boys are heading up the concert this time around.

The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network is using the concerts as a way to raise critically-needed funds to support its work helping disabled patients like Terri and their families as the next step of their mission following Terri’s death. She was killed by her husband, who won a highly-disputed court order allowing him to remove her feeding tube and take her life during the course of a 13-day starvation and dehydration death.

The foundation has come to the aide of hundreds of disabled people and their families, helping them to find legal support, medical care and treatment, and offering input and advice on dealing with hospitals, guardians, and family members who may not value life quite as much.

“Terri’s Foundation fights every day for the families faced with trying to protect their loved ones from a strong euthanasia movement,” Terri’s brother Bobby Schindler has said. “Without your support, we could not continue to be in a position to educate those on health care reform, futile care, assisted suicide and so much more.”

The second annual concert will take place near Dayton, Ohio this June and tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster this coming Saturday and at the Fraze Pavilion Box Office.

Few, if any, acts can match The Beach Boys’ concert presence, spirit and performance. Opening for The Beach Boys will be another hugely popular vocal group in American music history, The Letterman. The show promises to be a fabulous music event, long to be remembered by music fans and helping a great cause.

“Without question, The Beach Boys are the most successful and important American band of the rock music era,” the foundation told LifeNews.com today. “Their harmonies and infectious rock beats combine into memorable hits about teenage life in California in the 60s – surfing, cars, and girls.”

The Beach Boys rode the waves of success in 1961 with their regional debut hit “Surfin,” and, by 1966, they had emerged as one of America’s top pop groups by releasing eleven top 10 singles in five years including, “Help Me Rhonda,” “Surfer Girl,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” and “I Get Around.”

The band’s biggest selling hit came in 1988 with “Kokomo” and they were honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 Grammy Awards. Their 1966 album “Pet Sounds” has been listed by VH-1 as the #3 album in Rock & Roll History.

Meanwhile, by the early 1960′s The Lettermen had already had a few hits, and were a tremendous success. In almost every poll in the early 60′s, The Lettermen were named Best New Group or Best Vocal Group. The 60′s and early 70′s saw The Lettermen score over 25 chart hit singles, including “Theme From A Summer Place,” ” Goin’ Out of My Head,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “Hurt So Bad.”

March 28, 2005, Day 11 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. Over the next two-weeks, Terri's Network will post stories of the events that occurred on each of those 13 horrific days. We offer this not only in regard for Terri's memory, but as a reminder that as we speak, countless people are suffering slow, agonizing deaths in hospices, nursing homes, and hospitals in America and around the world.

From March 28, 2005 (By Nat Hentoff) - Florida Circuit Court Judge George Greer has again ordered the removal of 41-year-old Terri Schiavo's feeding tube. As of this writing, attempts by the Republican Congressional leadership and some Democrats are being made to save her, through the courts, but the odds are long. If she dies of dehydration and starvation, this grave injustice can affect the rights of ... (continue reading)

Rev. Jesse Jackson: Treatment Of Schiavo An 'Injustice'

March 29, 2005, Day 12 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. Over the next two-weeks, Terri's Network will post stories of the events that occurred on each of those 13 horrific days. We offer this not only in regard for Terri's memory, but as a reminder that as we speak, countless people are suffering slow, agonizing deaths in hospices, nursing homes, and hospitals in America and around the world.

From March 29, 2005 (Orlando.com) - The Rev. Jesse Jackson said the treatment of Terri Schiavo is an "injustice" and denying her feeding tube is "unnecessary" during a visit to the woman's Florida hospice Tuesday. "Without food or water for 12 days, there are vital signs and she is being starved to death," Jackson said. "She is being dehydrated to death and that is inhumane. (continue reading ...)

ALL the judges who murdered Terri will rot in h e double hockey sticks. Judge Greer wasn’t the only killer.

Nat Hentoff’s from The Village Voice. Many libs knew she was being murdered. Even Obama who regretted during the election that he voted to stop Terri’s murder.

The Republican legislature is pondering loosening up nursing home rules. There will be more killings, without judges, without medical providers. Hospice of the Suncoast will be in charge. Floridians, beware. Your future may very well be in the hands of the death cultists.

Visitors, if you get sick in Florida, LEAVE ASAP.

A survey called about all these politicians. For Jeb Bush, I hit “unfavorable” every chance I got. He cow towed to his older brother who had the globalists breathing down his neck to make sure Terri would die. Jeb cow towed and then I left the Republican Party until and unless they remember their values.

BB and all, just remember that the Hospices (good and bad ones) are in every single nursing home. It's not simply the building they murdered Terri in. The Hospice of the Suncoast (largest in the world) lurks in every nursing home and even people that say "no hospice" end up roped in to some bargain with hospice for oxygen tanks or comfy beds. It's a deal with the devil to take things from Hospice of the Suncoast. With what people pay to be in a nursing home, the oxygen should be provided by the nursing home and so should the bed!

What kind of tom foolery is this?

Hospice of the Suncoast suffocated my mother.

Jesse Jackson showed up the day a group of us went to Orlando to meet w/Rep. Dave Simmons who told me, "Terri would be martyred". I knew Terri was going to be killed that day. Rep. Simmons said we could quote him on that.

He's a GOP. At least he told the truth, unlike Jebediah Bush.

Jesse Jackson day wasn’t a total loss. Two people who went to Orlando to meet with Rep. Simmons had never met before (friends of mine). By the time we got back to Clearwater and had a second meeting at a law office, they were sitting across from one another at a conference table. They fell in love and got married. Thank u, Terri.

Terri Schiavo's Mom Pleads: 'Give My Child Back'

March 30, 2005, Day 13 of Judge George W. Greer's court ordered death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. Over the next two-weeks, Terri's Network will post stories of the events that occurred on each of those 13 horrific days. We offer this not only in regard for Terri's memory, but as a reminder that as we speak, countless people are suffering slow, agonizing deaths in hospices, nursing homes, and hospitals in America and around the world.

From March 30, 2005 (CNN) - The mother of Terri Schiavo made an impassioned plea to her daughter's husband Tuesday night, calling on him to "give my child back to me." Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was removed the afternoon of March 18 under court order, and doctors have predicted the brain-damaged Florida woman would die in the next few days. Her mother, Mary Schindler, uttered two sentences at a news conference: "Michael and Jodi, you have your own children. Please, please give my child back to me." (continue reading ...)

I still can’t wrap my mind around the fact that an innocent woman was tortured to death, while the entire world watched, and some people even cheered. If there was any truth at all in Darwin’s theory, we would have evolved beyond that behavior many centuries ago.

PURE EVIL is the cloak of many cowards and politicos who killed Terri.

TERRI'S DAY THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 2011. Please have a moment of silence for Terri and future Terri's.

Thank u, wagglebee for the day to day diary. Terri's barbaric killing was worse than any slasher movie ever made. Homeland Security was there also to make sure that Terri would be murdered in her homeland.

You're welcome, but I must admit I tear up every day when I post it.
