http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/971896/posts?q=1&&page=5167#5167

Simply visit Terri's official web site at:

http://www.terrisfight.org

There are contact numbers at her web site for her core media team, legislators, media and for press updates.

See flash movies of Terri interacting with her mother, responding to a physician and see for yourself that she's not in PVS "persistant vegetative state").

In addition to access a text file with a lot of information see:

If you want to join Terri's fight, it's important for us to CONTACT BUREAUCRATS, THE MEDIA and also your friends and family. It's up to you how you choose to Help Terri.

Pinellas Pasco Judge Greer set October 15, 2003 at 2:00 p.m. for her feeding tube to be removed. There's something wrong with Florida's exit protocols and the way the courts handle new information re: criminality (misrepresentation, attempted murder, etc.) affecting a case. There was no living will, only the assertion of a very suspect, so-called husband, his brother, etc. that Terri would not want to live on life support. Terri is not on life support, she is not comatose or PVS and she is not living "artificially". She does get sustenance from a feeding tube but only because she has been denied rehabilitation by her so-called husband after he won a malpratice lawsuit three years after her collapse (cause unknown but probably due to strangulation or physical abuse, or both) which is why Terri needs an army of supporters to spread her story from coast to coast. Terri has retained rights that are being sidestepped because she is disabled and has been denied rehabilitation! The technologies of rehabilitation have greatly improved exponentially yet Judge Greer has not let Terri have a chance to learn to eat or to be able to learn to speak/communicate again. Also new information bearing on the case which shows criminality on husband's side has not been considered by the 2nd District Court of Appeals who handed down Mandate for termination of Terri's feeding based upon testimony of criminal husband and brother as above stated. Who is next?

Let's make a difference! Thank you for your efforts.

Are the churches of Pinellas Co. oblivious to this murder planned for 2 p.m. on Oct. 15? I am wondering if the churches aren't just sitting in their comfortable pews humming choruses and listening to "feel good" sermons while a precious life hangs in the balance. I am beginning to think that people in Pinellas Co. hate the disabled.

I noticed last night that John Walsh's "America's Most Wanted" (Fox, 9 p.m. Eastern) featured two stories on crimes in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.

Does she have to remain in Florida? Time is slipping away so if she resided elswhere in the U.S.; maybe this would give her lawyers more time to plan for her survival.

Well, the "estranged husband" and official guardian has her under 24-hour bodyguard watch, and it is impossible to take her from the hospice. He wants her dead YESTERDAY.

Regarding a "criminal" husband: there is evidence that Terri may have been battered the night of her collapse. This is not conclusive, nor is this to be read as a direct accusation.

However, a bone scan the following year revealed multiple injuries and major trauma to Terri. Broken wrists, ankles, vertebrae, a compression fracture in her femur.

When she was first admitted, the attending physician said her rigid neck was an injury he had only seen once before - in the victim of attempted strangulation.

A radiologist reviewing Terri's scan said that she had "been worked over pretty good".

It is because of these statements that many believe Terri's condition could very well be the result of physicial abuse. Terri is about 5'5" and weighed under 130 when she collapsed. Her "husband" is 6'6" and over 250.

Again, this is neither conclusive nor an accusation. It is, however, evidence that some find terribly hard to ignore.

I am appalled at the people of Pinellas Co., FL. They should have long been marching on the courthouse of "Judge" George W. Greer. If there is no recall in FL (there is none in TX except for city officials under a home-rule charter), they should be demonstrating loudly and demanding Greer's resignation.

Instead will they just reelect Greer in 2004?

Then the fault is not with the people of Pinellas Co. then? I would be unsurprised if Greer does not retire at the end of 2004. He has done his part for the euthanasia movement and will be held in prominent regard among the advocates of "mercy killing." He may though think he can win again. With such little outrage from the citizenry over this starvation, Greer may think HE is God incarnate!

It would appear that each documented injury could be grounds for litigation on each case in point with the obvious result taking months to resolve during a lengthy appeal process. Something can be done and the point is make her non husband pay for his sins.

If a helicopter swept down on the hospice and tried to remove her, I would imagine that Jeb Bush would take immediate action to retrieve Terri. And the Schindler would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law AFTER Terri is murdered. Some justice in the state of FL!!!!

It's not really the "courts" that rule in favor of the estranged husband. It's one judge - George Greer - and the appelates have stood by him.

Remember, the husband's attorney petitioned the court early on for a non-jury trial. There is indication that collusion may be a factor in the case (http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewCulture.asp?Page=/Culture/archive/200309/CUL20030917c.html). Finally, Judge Greer has not allowed simple swallow tests for Terri to determine if she could safely consume table food. It is rather obvious that strong bias exists.

Again, the second DCA has backed him and it's anyone guess why that it. But, in the grand scheme of things, the courts are not the ones sentancing Terri to death. It's Judge Greer.

Thank you, phenn ... This information was exactly what I was looking for ... as you noted, there is a difference between suspicion and fact, and from what I've read so far, it is remiss to say "criminal" regarding Michael Schiavo ... highly suspect, definitely. I did not want any of the posters to think otherwise.

May your work for Terri and her family be rewarded with your hearts' desire ...

Pegita, you are right. M. Schiavo's conduct may not be "criminal." We have divorced "criminality" from "immorality" for too long. In fact, for many "good" is evil and "evil" is good!

Pegita, it may not even take a weary judge. The federal judge this is to go in front of is Richard Lazarra. From what I've been told about him, two things work in Terri's favor. One is that he is a devoted Catholic. Let's face it, Catholics aren't super hip on the idea of killing people off. It simply goes against their teachings.

The other good tick is that Lazarra's entire family are reported to be major humanitarians. One sibling is said to run missionary and hospital efforts here and overseas to help children who are disfigured due to burn and injury.

With those two values as part of their character make-up, one could assume that the Lazarra family - including Richard Lazarra - take human life pretty seriously and have aspirations to serve this notion.

Just an opinion.

Thanks again, phenn ... your information is so encouraging and gives better direction to the prayer efforts on Terri's behalf. My Dad spent some time in a Catholic nursing home ... several short stays, as a matter of fact ... and each time the Living Will was discussed. On the subject of nutrition and hydration, the facility WOULD NOT withhold either because of their belief, no matter if that were the patient's request. May the Lord give such a strong stance to this Judge ...

I don't understand why Terry's parents can't be made her legal guardians. I haven't read the whole story, but it seems to me that if the man wants so badly to be her "ex-husband," why can't he get a divorce but give up custody to her parents, who obviously want to see her live? Seems that maybe the rumors of criminal wrongdoing on his part are more than just rumors... particularly after the bone scan findings of multiple major traumas.

Because he is a major creep! He is not Terri's loving "husband". He has been living with another woman Jody Centzone for the last 10 years. He has children with Jodi. What he has done to this family is beyond immoral. I only hope that one day he suffers as much pain as he has caused.

---
It seems the Pasco Pinellas state judge, George W Greer, has ruled mostly in favor of the so-called "husband" and the people he has gotten to say Terri is "PVS" (permanent vegetative state) and that the 2nd District Court of Appeals either accepted this or ruled that she was and/or that the mere testimony of Michael Schiavo and a couple collaborators saying she would not want to live on life support or "artificially" was enough for her to be put to death by terminating her feeding and dehydrating/starving her to death. It doesn't seem to matter that Michael in some of the affidavits which were brought forth after Jeb Bush wrote/faxed a letter to Greer make a difference on the original ruling even though they show his criminal actions, words, deeds, etc. Apparently no new evidence can change the ruling. The court/legal system appears to be "screwed up". Michael had won a malpractice lawsuit where he stipulated her rehabiliation but after he got the money he did the opposite, he secluded her and prevented her rehabiliation. Also judge Greer allowed Terri's rehabilitation monies to be spent to pay for Michael's attorney George J. Felos who has gotten Mr. Greer to rule in his favor in regards to commencing terminating her life on Oct. 15. I was at the court room on Sept. 11 and Felos wanted it to commence on Sept. 11 that very day at 5p.m. The judge admitted said "I know" when people said that she was a human being. He said it in an annoyed fashion. Through all the logic any man of integrity would have ruled in Terri's favor to have her rehabilitated so that she could learn to communicate and eat, etc. so that she could go outside in the sun, etc. but this judge doesn't listen to reason. He is of the type that is corrupt in his thinking and will rule the other way just to spite the people who love Terri and because IMO he is a bad man and if you read all the info. at www.terrisight.org and if easier to read certain texts at:

http://bellsouthpwp.net/p/c/pc93/FedCourtDktCaseNo8_03-cv-1860-T-26TGW.txt

you will see that he is very corrupt and even tried to hide his actions and even got the sherrif (Sherrif Rice) to make a fool of himself and break the law, etc. He ruled by fax after the Sept. 11 hearing in that he said he would postpone his ruling until the next week (so that he wouldn't have to hear or deal with some of Terri's family and supporters who were gathered in force there). And was anyone surprised at his ruling? No. He has just handed down the death sentence of Terri and to absolve himself of anything criminal says that he is following the mandate of the 2nd District Court of Appeals. No matter the evidence in the affidavits which were entered into the court records from the Emergency Federal Hearing of Lazarra. No matter that they show the utmost criminal intentions of the so-called "husband" and "guardian" of Terri but also that the judge who also represents as a "guardian" was remiss to stick up for a disabled person who deserves to live and has the will to live. Oh, but during some other previous testimony "the hairs stood up on the back of his neck" after hearing some of the things spoken about, etc. I guess he is a closed minded judge who errs on the side of death for disabled people because he is a sportsminded able person who is not used to disabled people. He does not uphold the constitution of his state nor of the Federal level. He is a menace and a disgrace and he has ruled and that is final- he has as stated before succeed in giving Terri her death sentence and there is nothing that can be done. Or is there?

I'm not sure but if she was my sister I would definitely do my utmost to take her somewhere safe where she would be out of the clutches of Michael Schiavo, George J. Felos, George W. Greer (who made the final death sentence stick) and the whole legal system of Florida which has no conscience, plus even the Attorney General's of Florida and the Governor who won't call a special session in the legislature to save Terri or the President of the US who doesn't answer his e-mails because they made it to hard to communicate with him and the Vice President who when sent a fax does not respond and the Attorney General of this great nation, John Ashcroft who as well doesn't give a damn. I would also try to stay away from the majority of the media who are semantically stupid and biased to give criminals every chance to distort their story to make it seem like they are in the right, etc. and that they are good people when reason says that they are monsters and when reason can see right through their phoniness and hiding behind the law which seems to do what they want it to do, etc.

Well, that's just it. Disability is not a crime. But, it is (apparently) a death sentance to estranged spouses and biased judges.

Why do you suppose Jeb Bush got out of the fight when George W. Greer and Michael Schiavo denounced him publicly. Shiavo used practically "fighting words" against the governor. Greer said he was putting Bush's letter in the "file," and he said it in a most demeaning way.

Why won't Bush stand up for decency? Even if he cannot legally stop the starvation, he could make a PR show, like he did for the man who insisted on breaking homeowners association rules to fly his flag.

And Charles Crist was supposed to be a really reliable conservative. He is nowhere to be found in the fight. Isn't he from Pinellas or a nearby county as well?

Where is Jimmy Carter, that self-stated paragon of compassion and virtue?

This simply cannot be allowed to be the final end of this woman. There must be a organized plan that can legally isolate her from this evil system. As far as not returning E-Mail messages I have no answer but Jehovah God Almighty in Heaven can bring much to bear on her husband through the prayers of his saints. I'm not sure if its biblical but it bears repeating in this case Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! Someone or group must step up and become her Champion!

We are just so despondent and don't know what to do to save this disabled person. And I wasn't particularly supportive of the Americans with Disabilities Act when the first President Bush signed it into law in 1990, the year Terri collapsed. Evidently, this law has no real teeth and was a "feel-good" PR type of legislation. Even the president's son Jeb (nor G.W. Bush for that matter)ever mentions it in regard to Terri or in any other context.

"Why can't he get a divorce but give up custody to her parents, who obviously want to see her live?"

He doesn't want to divorce her. He would be liable for splitting up whatever "assets" that were there during the marriage, including any he has gained while Terri has been incapacitated. Then there's the alimony he'd have to pay, too. All that, plus Terri would continue to live! If she ever gets any better, she might be able to tell what really happened that night she collapsed. He also had a terrible falling out with Terri's family after they found out what kind of son-in-law he really was. He doesn't want them to get any satisfaction from knowing that justice was served for Terri. No, he'd rather condemn her to a death by dehydration and starvation than have ANY of these alternatives!

To add further insult to injury, he already has another "wife" with whom he has fathered two children, one already here and the other on the way. This would totally put him in a financial bind, I'm sure. Paying the consequences for poor choices just isn't up his alley. Lovely, thoughtful guy, isn't he? Should be nominated for "Husband of the Year" (sarcasm)!

We are all hoping that the more attention we can bring to Terri's unjust situation, the louder we will get, the better we can make our world. Terri's life is on the line, but if you read further about this on the monster thread, you will soon realize that there are a thousand more Terri's out there. There is a strong euthanasia movement that has been working toward this end for many years and most of us are just now waking up to this fact. If we can help in some way for Terri to win any of these court battles, it will be legal precedent that might help any one of us in the future. The way I and many others see it, any of us are only a car (or other) accident away from being in Terri's situation.

BTW, for any and all newcomers to Terri's fight, we appreciate your support. Phenn, one of the FR posters on this thread, is actually one of the people who works at terrisfight.org. She is very knowledgeable about Terri's current situation, so she is an excellent resource. We appreciate her coming on to FR and posting her thoughts for us.

Prayers for Terri!

Ironic and sad! It must continually stab them in the heart knowing that they allowed their precious daughter to marry this monster! Jodi Centonze's family would do well to warn their daughter about this man, too.

Hello everyone.

I just learned of Terri's case about two weeks ago while listening to the Glenn Beck radio program. I was shocked and appalled to learn of the heinous and criminal things that are happening to Terri Schindler Schiavo and her family.

I want to know if a benefit concert has been discussed for Terri? We would need a BIG, BIG name, like a Michael W. Smith or an Amy Grant to get on board and passionately fight for this cause. I am willing to put up a significant contribution for this cause.

Who is in charge of rallies for Terri in the St. Petersburg, Florida area?

To save Terri's life WE MUST GET THE EYES OF OUR NATION ON ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA, ASAP! This may be long shot, especially at this late stage in the game, but we must pull out all of the stops in order to help save her!

I live in Savannah, Georgia and I am literally telling EVERYONE I know about this case. I am making 1000 copies of the fliers from Terri's web site and will distribute them over the next two weeks. I am meeting with and calling pastors, priests, church leaders, businessmen, organizations, radio stations, famous celebrites, athletes, news journalists, basically, everyone. I am sending emails, faxes, making phone calls, and writing hand written notes to some of them.

Every person who's name is on Terri's flier must be flooded with phone calls, faxes, and emails from now at least until October 15, 2003.

I am from Georgia, a border state of Florida, and few people that I talk to are actually familiar with Terri's case and are hearing the details of this case for the first time from me. I have spoken to the offices of two US Congressional Representatives here in my hometown and both secretaries I spoke with were not familiar with this case and assured me they would promptly notify the congressmen.

Please, someone let me know when the rallies for Terri will begin. I am going to be there and hope to bring several friends with me.

The clock is ticking for Terri and for all of us who must help her. My email address is MisterJDC@aol.com. Please contact me if there is anything you wish to let me know.

GET THE WORD OUT! TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THIS CAUSE! TAKE THIS PERSONALLY! THIS IS NO TIME TO BE PASSIVE!

God Bless Terri! God Bless the Schindler family. God Bless everyone involved in the fight to save Terri's life!

God Bless America!

I'm not sure of who is in charge of rallies as I didn't know if there had ever been a rally for Terri. Perhaps Phenn can answer to this. It sounds like a good idea to me.

You feel this way HERE, but what about what you posted on the big Terri thread, started by Ragtime Cowgirl?

To: Ragtime Cowgirl

Stop your hate filled action immediately and remember you are a mortal yourself and think how you would feel if the situation was reversed! You won't live forever yourself and you also don't know in what condition you may end up in!

I added more than just one topic when I started this pt 2 thread yet it only says Activism/Chapters;US:Florida, I clicked to add a topic but it wants me to type something. What can I do? I also typed more than a few keyboards and the ones that were more than one word were put together. I would like for some more topics to add as I was of the opinion that Terri's fight would include all the states and even other parts of the world, etc. and covered other topics besides activism. Please help me with topics and keywords.
