She has lived in her current condition for 15 years. This is not about end-of-life decision-making. The question is whether she should be killed by starvation and dehydration. 2. Ms. Schiavo is not dependent on life support. Her lungs, kidneys, heart, and digestive systems work fine. Just as she uses a wheelchair for mobility, she uses a tube for eating and drinking. Feeding Ms. Schiavo is...

Because she is physically sustainable but brain-damaged, she must be starved to death. One week before Good Friday, her nutrition and hydration were cut off by order of Circuit Court Judge Pontius Pilate, a/k/a George Greer, who found his own blindness faultless but her innocence liable to death.

    There is a new dimension in the fierce battle over whether Terri Schiavo's life is worth saving. A federally funded investigation has begun into certain medical judgments made by her husband and guardian, Michael Schiavo, including decisions in recent months. But more important is whether the inquiry will discover what actually caused Terri Schiavo's alleged cardiac arrest in 1990, which is said to be the reason her brain was deprived of oxygen, resulting in her condition for the past 13 years. The degree to which this investigation is widely reported by the media may help determine whether Terri Schiavo lives...

In his book, Felos described an incident that occurred while he was engaged in a “right-to-die” case, very involved in the hospice movement and traveling by plane. Felos wrote that he "wonder[ed] what it would be like to die right now” and “indulged the thought by imagining the plane starting to lose it trajectory and descend.” So what happened? The plane lost its trajectory and descended! Creating chaos in the cabin as people began to realize the plane was going to crash, Felos wrote....

    Before lawmakers in Florida allow Terri Schiavo, a mentally disabled woman who is fed through a tube, to be starved and dehydrated to death, they ought to take a careful look at the 2000 Census.  It explains why the Constitution compels them to keep fighting for Terri's life.  In 2003, a Florida judge decided Terri's estranged husband (who has two children by another woman) could disconnect her tube and kill her by starvation and dehydration. Gov. Jeb Bush persuaded Florida's legislature to enact a law allowing him to restore Terri's tube. But the law was narrowly cast: It applied only...

    WASHINGTON - The world has moved on since the case of Terri Schiavo, whose husband sought to remove the feeding tube that kept her alive, briefly grabbed public attention last fall. But Terri's life remains at risk. Michael Schiavo, her parents, the state of Florida, and advocacy groups continue to fight over her future. Alas, she keeps losing where it matters most, in court. Terri collapsed in 1990, leaving her profoundly cognitively disabled. Her husband won a $1.3 million malpractice judgment that included money for her medical care, but subsequently refused to fund rehabilitative treatment for her. Along the way...

    Starting sometime in June, Pinellas County residents will, for all intents and purposes, be compelled to ingest a product used in rat poison which will be added to their domestic water supply. The addition of fluoride to the water supply is not meant to make the water supply safe to drink, but rather, will be added to the water supply because some folks in government have taken it upon themselves to make a medical decision ... This forced ingestion of an identifiable substance for its alleged health benefits would appear to violate what Michael Schiavo’s lawyer might claim is a...

    This document is titled "Petition to Modify Visitation Rules" and was filed on behalf of Michael Schiavo by attorney Deborah Bushnell. The language in this document has caused tremendous concern. You can view the entire document by clicking here. Part 1, Paragraph 5: "When the ward is in the hospital, petitioner should be permitted to more strictly regulate the ward's visitors in order to accommodate the need for hospital personnel to administer medication and treatments unimpeded." Does this language mean to say that Terri's immediate family will no longer be able to visit or see her should she become hospitalized?...

    American Constitutional Research Service 12-14-03 JUDICIAL TYRANNY: FROM PARENTAL RIGHTS TO TERRI’S LAW BACKGROUND On Oct. 21, 2003 Florida’s Legislature passed a bill know as “Terri’s Law” authorizing Gov. Jeb Bush to intervene in a case in which a judge, Judge Greer, ordered a feeding tube to be removed from Terri Schiavo who was, and had been, in an incapacitated state for a number of years. The order of the judge to remove Terri’s feeding tube was in consequence to a court action by Terri’s husband who claimed Terri’s wish was to be left to die and sought the Courts...

    You may have briefly allowed Terri Schiavo into your life a few weeks ago as her picture flashed across your television screen, or her name poured from your radio. That fleeting visit with Terri might have left you with the visual image of a brain dead woman left to linger in a perpetual state of limbo simply because her family can’t come to terms with her injuries. Terri’s plight may have impressed you as nothing more than a family feud gone horribly public, but Terri’s battle for life is much more significant than a simple personal dispute. On the surface...

    STUART -- A comatose mother of four whose imprisoned husband and family were at odds over whether to take her off life support has died after 10 years of being in a vegetative state. Susan R. Miller, 49, of Stuart was the focus of the long legal battle. Her husband, armed robber and kidnapper Wallace Miller, wanted the feeding tubes removed from his wife of 11 years, but her children and eight siblings said she wouldn't have wanted them to end her life. The issue became moot Sunday, when Susan Miller died. She had been in a Stuart nursing home....

    The Associated Press Published: Nov 21, 2003 CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Jeb Bush asked an appeals court Friday to disqualify a judge in the constitutional battle over a law that allowed doctors to reinsert a brain-damaged woman's feeding tube. The appeal came a day after Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge W. Douglas Baird refused to step aside as requested by Bush. The governor wants Baird off the case after he said at a hearing last week that the hastily passed law intruded on Terri Schiavo's privacy rights and was "presumptively unconstitutional." Schiavo's husband Michael has offered those arguments and is suing...

    Clearwater, Florida-AP -- Another legal wrinkle involving Terri Schiavo (SHY'-voh), the severely brain-damaged woman at the center of a Florida right-to-die case. Governor Jeb Bush is asking an appeals court to disqualify a judge in the case, saying he's biased. The judge, W. Douglas Baird, refused to take himself off the case yesterday. Baird is presiding over a challenge to a hastily-passed law that allowed Bush to order Schiavo's feeding tubes reinserted. At a hearing last week, Baird said the new law intruded on Schiavo's privacy rights and was "presumptively unconstitutional." Schiavo's husband, Michael, says his wife never wanted to...

    TAMPA, Fla. - An attorney for the husband of a brain-damaged woman is trying to convince an appeals court that Gov. Jeb Bush should not be allowed to delay a challenge to a new law that restored her feeding tube. In a brief filed Monday, Michael Schiavo's attorney argued that his constitutional challenge to the new law should not be held up any longer while Bush takes issue with failing to be served with a formal notice of the lawsuit.Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, also argues that if the 2nd District Court of Appeal in Lakeland sides with Bush, then the...

    The parents and siblings of Terri Schiavo have mounted a television campaign to appeal to a national audience and counter similar efforts by her husband. WorldNetDaily has reported the Schindlers have been locked in a 10-year battle to keep Michael Schiavo from removing the brain-damaged woman's life-sustaining feeding tube and to get her rehabilitative therapy she has been denied for a decade. Michael Schiavo insists Terri does not want to be kept alive "through artificial means" and succeeded in getting a Florida court to order the tube removed last month. The 39-year-old survived six days without hydration and fluids...
