Day Four

House Passes Schiavo Bill

March 21, 2005, Day 4 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 21, 2005 (CNN) - Following more than three hours of passionate debate on Capitol Hill, the U.S. House early Monday passed a bill on 203 to 58 vote that transfers jurisdiction of the Terri Schiavo case to a U.S. district court for a federal judge to review. (continue reading . . .)

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 . . .)

An American doctor argues in the latest issue of the leading journal Bioethics that artificial nutrition and hydration should be withdrawn from all patients in a permanent vegetative state

There is indeed an arguement among professionals as to what exactly a vegetative state is...or when a person is indeed in a vegetative state. Just one of the things that needs to be cleared up before sentencing people to death- not to mention that if it is agreed upon no one should ever be starved and dehydrated to death.

Originally a living will was to ensure if someone did not want to be on life support or have other measures taken, then a living will was a guideline. Now if you don’t want to be starved/dehydrated it better be in writing- and who knows if that would be honored.

I will never forget Terri. I did everything within my power to save her...agonized each day she was without food and water. She passed away on my Birthday and I still cannot celebrate on that day. If hubby wants to take me out or my daughters want to have a cake or whatever we do it on another day. There is a hole in my heart that will never heal from learning how evil some people really are.

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 . . .)

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.

So basically whenever I see the word “bioethicist” - I can assume it is synonymous with murderous, sadistic, torturous, cruel,amoral, etc....?

Terri Schiavo Dies

6 years ago, court-ordered dehydration death called 'peaceful,' 'barbaric'

March 31, 2005 (WND) - It was six years ago today, March 31, 2005, that 41-year-old Terri Schiavo succumbed to 13 days of court-ordered dehydration and starvation under the watchful eyes of a security guard posted nearby.

Thousands of protesters were gathered outside her Pinellas Park, Fla., hospice, surveilled by rooftop sharpshooters paid for by the hospice at a cost of $98,162. Schiavo's estranged husband, Michael Schiavo, and his attorney took turns with her parents and siblings and their attorney holding a bedside vigil during what right-to-die advocates called her "death process," which was triggered by the court-ordered ...
