  • Mother fights hospital to keep baby on life support (Terri's Legacy)

    DALLAS A mother fighting to keep her baby on life support, despite a hospital's determination that her efforts would be futile, will get two more weeks to find a facility that will take the 10-month-old. A judge had been set to decide tomorrow whether to grant a temporary injunction to stop Children's Medical Center in Dallas from removing Daniel Wayne Cullen the Second from life support. But attorneys for the boy's mother and the hospital agreed yesterday to extend a temporary restraining order for another two weeks. Attorney Brian Potts, who represents the boy's mother, Dixie Belcher, said he plans...

Yet for millions of Americans we will forever link our own celebration of our nation's independence to the courage of the Schindler family to go forward past the tragedy, past the personal sorrow, past the searing anguish to help America draw a distinct line in the sand, to issue a clarion call...

    TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Jeb Bush was in daily contact with congressional leaders in March as court efforts to intervene on behalf of Terri Schiavo faltered, according to e-mails obtained Monday from the governor's office. The e-mails, released to The Palm Beach Post in response to a public records request, also show that state lawmakers persevered with legislative maneuvering to keep the severely brain-damaged woman's feeding tube intact, despite advice from Bush's top Schiavo attorney that such an effort was hopeless.

Terri Schiavo's parents and siblings, who waged a lengthy court battle over her end-of-life wishes, said on Fox's "Hannity & Colmes" show that her husband is keeping her remains from them.

    Ironically, if Terri Schiavo's feeding tube had been reinserted and she had been allowed to live on, it would have done very little damage to the purported "right to die." It would have set no precedent for cases in which a patient has left written instructions, in which a patient's heart is unable to beat or lungs are unable to breathe without the aid of a machine, in which a patient was already suffering a terminal illness, or in which a patient's closest family members are united as to what the patient wanted. What made Terri's case stand out was...

What I'd like to see in the aftermath of the Terri Schiavo fiasco: Congress holds hearings on the matter. The far-left-wing media is shamed over its shoddy reporting about Terri's actual condition, and the far-left-wing media suffers a severe blow to its credibility regarding the question of how it managed to a) overlook numerous conflicts of interest among the pro-death...

               I have great respect for Ambassador Keyes, and for his acumen, but his article on World Net Daily suggesting that if Governor Bush does not call out the State Police, or I assume, also the National Guard to save Terri’s life, he is derelict in his duty.

Ambassador Keyes is not alone in his harsh criticism of Governor Bush, but I am not with them in this.      When Governor Bush moved the legislature of Florida to pass Terri’s Law it did so...

    America is now a nation ruled by the amoral and fallible will of men. They are called lawyers. The warning has been coming for decades. The current case involving the litigated and legally mandated death sentence of Terri Schiavo has now confirmed our current fate. This should be no surprise. For at least fifty years we have been indoctrinated with the specious argument that a traditional, rational and common moral code of conduct is bourgeois and unsophisticated. This journey of cultural madness has culminated in massive societal confusion regarding whether right and wrong behavior even exists. This is unless a...

To say that it had been at death's door for many years is a truism. But yesterday the trust plighted by men and women through the ceremony, sacrament to some, of marriage, shuffled off a remainder of its mortal coil. You've heard the knell for days, on the subways, the ferryboats, and in the polls. "Well, after all, he was a young man. Why shouldn't he find a life for himself, another...

    Why did Terri Schiavo die? The answer seems easy enough. The actual answer is because her "husband" requested a court to let him starve her, and the court gave him permission to. It is the first example of judicially granted, state-sanctioned homicide in American history. But Michael Schiavo and Judge George Greer were not alone in their willingness to put personal agendas above an innocent woman's constitutional rights to life and liberty. In a match of "manhood," the rhetorical war between the legislative branch and the judicial branch of the federal government – as much as any of the other...

    wASHINGTON, March 31 - The life and death of Terri Schiavo - intensely public, highly polarizing and played out around the clock on the Internet and television- has become a touchstone in American culture. Rarely have the forces of politics, religion and medicine collided so spectacularly, and with such potential for lasting effect. Ms. Schiavo, the profoundly incapacitated woman whose family split over whether she would have preferred to live or die, forced Americans into a national conversation about the end of life. Her case raised questions about the role of government in private family decisions. But her legacy may...

Results of the autopsy may not be released for several weeks, the medical examiner's office said. Husband Michael Schiavo hopes the autopsy will settle questions about her medical condition, but experts differ on whether that will happen.

On February 25, 1990, Theresa Schindler Schiavo collapsed in her home and suffered significant brain damage. In 1992, Mrs. Schiavo’s husband Michael was awarded a $1,050,000 malpractice settlement, of which $300,000 was allocated for Mr. Schiavo’s loss of consortium and $750,000 for Mrs. Schiavo’s rehabilitative care.

    WASHINGTON, March 31, 2005 ( - On Thursday, March 24, the director of public affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida sent an e-mail to advocates for the abortion operation telling them how to "express your appreciation" to Florida Republican senators who split with the GOP leadership by voting against a bill intended to save Terri Schiavo. The message listed the names and contact information for the six senators. "Apparently Planned Parenthood isn't content with killing 244,628 innocent children in the last year through abortion. Now the harmful organization is telling its advocates how to thank elected officials...

    Terri’s Legacy, It Is Time for a Real Culture of Life Bill From Progressive America; Terri's Law By Anthony Wade March 31, 2005 The circus is finally over, Terri Schiavo has gone home. The side-show has packed up their tents and will head home, learning nothing, and soon forgetting a woman that sparked such outrage. That is unless someone does not let that happen. The GOP will feign indignation and try to use Mrs. Schiavo as a weapon to reign in a judiciary they feel is out of control but all you need to know about the judge in...

    I address this to real Catholic Freepers, and I am happy to greet friendly Anglicans and Orthodox Freepers. Terri Schindler's murder because of the decree of the State and the inaction of the State means our sister in Christ will likely die a martyr because of the Culture of Death.If and when this premeditated murder is completed, I would like us all to rally faithful Catholics everywhere to call upon the Church at every level to acclaim Terri as "Theresa Marie Schindler, Martyr for the Gospel of Life" If in time, Holy Mother Church will remember the ancient custom and...

    Public opinion may be shifting on the decision to disconnect Terri Schiavo's feeding tube and starve her to death, according to a new Fox Opinion Dynamics survey - with a significant percentage of Americans now saying it was "murder." When asked about the "decision to remove" Schiavo's feeding tube, 38 percent of Americans told Opinion Dynamics that they disagreed with the decision, with 42 percent backing the move. A full 20 percent said they were unsure. A widely circulated ABC News poll last week asked if it was right to pull Schiavo's feeding tube, noting that she's been "on life...

    (English-language translation) Following the death of Terri Schiavo, the woman who was in a vegetative state for 15 years and without food or water for 13 days, several people interviewed by this daily stated that an injustice was committed against this woman. Dominican Sisters of Fatima Magdalena Rivera and María Irene Santiago said that this case was very sad and unjust. "God is the only author of life and death, and we have to wait for God's moment so that a person may leave this world, [which] we must not violate," said Sister Magdalena. She pointed out that there have...

    The daughter of Bob and Mary Schindler has died, slowly executed by court order. Even in her death, the parents and their other children remain the example of peaceful forgiving Christians. While many Teri supporters angrily lash out at Michael Schiavo, George Felos, the court and even elected officials, the family asks for peace. And now they are asking only for the body of their daughter, which is also being legally denied. What beautiful people..... Or ---- is this 21st Century re-enactment of Uncle Tom's Cabin ? I know many people would be offended that I would make such a...

A complete autopsy will be performed on Terri's body by the local county medical examiner's office. Once that is completed, Michael plans to have Terri's body cremated and...

    Two weeks ago, Judge George Greer's pastor asked him to 'reconsider' his membership at Calvary Baptist Church, one of Clearwater's largest and best known Southern Baptist southern congregations.Greer severed ties with the theologically conservative congregation within days of the request. Calvary said it did not technically ask Judge Greer to leave. The truth, Calvary says is that Greer was the first one to walk away and had not attended the church in years.The membership question was merely an attempt to make it official. Long before the current pastor, Greer had problems with members of the Southern Baptist denomination.The Florida Baptist...
