    Charlie Crist Let My Daughter Die by Robert Schindler, Sr. Posted Jul 31, 2006 As most Americans know, on March 31, 2005, my daughter, Terri Schindler Schiavo died of starvation and thirst after having her feeding tube removed by court order. The sad chain of events that concluded with Terri’s death ignited a media firestorm nationally and internationally. What few saw or heard was the callous inaction of aspiring governor Charlie Crist. Florida Atty. Gen. Charlie Crist let my daughter die. He had it within his authority to save her life, but he turned a blind eye to her suffering....

Felos was the “right to die” activist lawyer that propelled Michael Schiavo’s case through the courts to have his disabled wife Terri starved and dehydrated to death.

    While not specifically calling it "revenge," Michael Schiavo has fired a shot over the bow at the "Bible-thumping politicians" whom he claims used his wife, Terri Schiavo, as a political football last spring. Schiavo has announced the formation of a political action committee, called Terri PAC, in hopes of raising funds to defeat the politicians who tried to intervene in the seven-year court battle over the life of the 41-year-old brain-injured woman.

    The end of the June 15 autopsy report on Terri Schiavo states that it is the policy of the medical examiner's officer "that no case is ever closed and that all determinations are to be reconsidered upon receipt of credible, new information." Whatever new information, if any, comes to light, the facts of who she was and how she died will inevitably change the way many of us confront our own deaths. Pat Anderson, for a long time the attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents, said the day Terri died of dehydration — as ordered by the courts and her husband...

    In a stunning profile of George Felos -- the attorney who helped Michael Schiavo put his wife Terri to death -- an author and famed theologian shows the weird side of the crusading right-to-die lawyer. This is certainly a story the mainstream media ignored. Writing in Crisis magazine, Benjamin Wiker, co-author of "Architects of the Culture of Death" and a senior fellow at the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, uses Felos' own words to expose his oddball views. Wiker is no friend of Felos' views. He writes of Terri's Shiavo's death: "Cold blooded murder," sanctioned by the state of...

    Her gravesite may be festooned in flowers, but "Rest in Peace" is something Terri Schindler has been deprived of in death. Date of birth and date of death are often the last things written for those who have departed this Earth, a timeworn testimony to the conventional practice that leans on societal respect for the dead left on untold scores of graves the world over. Convention and respect for the dead seem to fly out the window when it comes to widower Michael Schiavo and his flamboyantly bizarre attorney, George Felos.

    The right-to-life versus dying-with-dignity battle over Terri Schindler Schiavo exploded back into life on Monday, bursting back to life from the unlikely scene of a cemetery. "At the burial site of Terri Schiavo’s cremated remains, Michael Schiavo used a bronze grave marker to list Feb. 25, 1990 as the date his wife died," laments Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Washington-based Christian Democracy Coalition (CDC). "Feb. 25, 1990 is the date Terri Schindler Schiavo experienced a still unknown event that left her severely mentally disabled. Terri Schiavo actually died March 31, 2005, nearly two weeks after her feeding tube...

    Ashes of Terri Schiavo buried 12 minutes ago The remains of Terri Schiavo, a brain-damaged Florida woman whose fate sparked a highly politicized right-to-die battle, were buried on Monday in Florida, her husband's lawyer said. The interment of Schiavo's ashes took place nearly three months after she died and five days after pathologists released results of an autopsy that showed her to have had massive brain damage and no hope of recovery. Her condition resulted from a collapse in 1990 that deprived her brain of oxygen. The burial at Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park in Clearwater, Florida, was held in the...

    Just when it seemed that every liberal commentator on the Terri Schiavo case was starting to sound like Barney Frank, the great Joan Didion published a long and remarkable article on the case in the quite far left New York Review of Books of June 9. Frank, of course, took the occasion of last week's Schiavo autopsy results as yet another opportunity to denounce Republicans as "this fanatical party willing to impose its own views on people." For those of you still somehow unaware, "imposing their views" is a semiofficial Democratic meme or code phrase meaning "religious people who vote...

    It’s okay to dehydrate and starve the disabled. At least that’s what some letter writers to canadafreepress.com are saying as they gloat about the release of Terri Schiavo’s autopsy. "Poor Terri had half a brain left, no chance to ever rehabilitate, no feelings, no thoughts, no way to tell everyone to leave her alone so she could see G-d (sic). It took 15 years but she did it no thanks to people like you," wrote Gloria whose email came from a generic hotmail account (picchetti707@hotmail.com)

    A federal judge who declined to review the lawsuit Terri Schaivo's parents filed to prevent her painful 13 day starvation death may have had a conflict of interest. Federal District Court Judge James Whittemore of Tampa was charged by Congress to take up the case and issue a temporary restraining order preventing Terri's death. He refused. However, it appears Judge Whittemore, who became the subject of condemnation from Congressional leaders after his decision, possible should have recused himself from the case. Whittemore served in the 13th Circuit Court of Hillsborough County, Florida from 1990 to 1999. According to a report...

    First, let us understand what the Terri Schiavo matter was not about: Despite ideological diatribes from David Corn at The Nation, this was not "an ugly big-government attempt to intervene in a family conflict" designed to appease "religious right crusaders." Despite ranting from Robert Scheer, also at The Nation, this was not "egregious political opportunism and shameless trafficking in human misery," and the citation of dubious polls won't validate Scheer's hope that the majority of Americans want to see a helpless woman starved to death by judicial order. And despite hysteria from the Los Angeles Times, this was not "a...

    For decades, neuroscientists have recognized that the brain has three distinct systems. One is derived from primitive reptiles that were adept at survival strategies. Another includes the limbic system – often called the “seat of emotions.” The third includes the neocortex and prefrontal lobes (comprising the right and left hemispheres of the brain) that account for thinking, verbal abilities and other “higher” functions. My theory is that Terri’s putative husband Michael, his attorney George J. Felos, and Judge George Greer – who ruled for years against Terri’s right to life – have highly developed reptilian brains and prefrontal lobes, but...

I will divide them in to two distinct categories: past and present. The past danger I am referring to concerns the time when I was first paralyzed.

Now, after more than a decade of litigation, a 41-year-old brain-damaged Florida woman is slowly dying at her husband's request. What's more, recent polls show that most Americans are so confused about end-of-life treatment that they think that this is a good thing. Who is to blame for this fear of extreme disability?

    George Felos, perhaps trying to ease his guilt, (though this is unlikely since one must have a conscience to feel guilt) and improve his image as a heartless ogre, went before cameras and fed the world one of the biggest lies it has ever heard. He related how "peaceful and beautiful" Terri is as she lay dying. I guess if dying of dehydration and starvation is so lovely, perhaps we should all die that way. Perhaps we should give that option to criminals on death row. We certainly should stop being concerned about the children in poor countries dying of...

    Felos' alleged personal relationship with God is highly unusual. And other people should know about it. 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....

He stated--this is not a quote--that had society accepted Kevorkian's solutions of quick, easy, and painless euthanasia, Terri would not be facing slow death by starvation. He called this "obscene" but blames this obscenity on anti-abortion,...

    EDITOR'S NOTE: As public attention turns again the predicament of Terri Schiavo – the 41-year-old brain-damaged woman whose husband is seeking her starvation death – I thought it was time to remind our readers of the dangerous worldview which is driving the attempt to euthanize Terri. Below is a reprint of most of my Nov. 13, 2003, editorial published at a time when Terri’s life was in danger, as it is again. As we go to press this week, a flurry of activity in Tallahassee, Washington and the courts continue as advocates seek to save Terri’s life. Her husband claims...

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A judge ruled Thursday that the state's social services agency cannot delay the removal of the feeding tube keeping brain-damaged Terri Schiavo alive. The Department of Children & Families had asked for a 60-day delay in the removal of the feeding tube, now scheduled March 18. The agency said it wanted time to investigate allegations of abuse and neglect by the woman's husband, Michael Schiavo. But Circuit Judge George W. Greer ruled that the agency's attempt to get involved at this point was inappropriate and "appears to be brought for the purpose of circumventing the court's...

    CLEARWATER - Terri Schiavo could be taken away by state agents if the Department of Children & Families fails in its bid to delay the removal of her life-sustaining feeding tube, her husband's attorney said Tuesday. Also Tuesday, DCF attorney Keith Ganobsik announced in court that his agency will ask Judge George Greer to ban reporters from a hearing today on its request to intervene in the case. Last week, the DCF lost a bid to keep that same request a secret. In a document made public through the efforts of the The Tampa Tribune and News Channel 8, a...
  • WHY DO MICHAEL SCHIAVO, GEORGE FELOS AND JUDGE GREER WANT TERRI SCHIAVO STARVED TO DEATH?

    Michael Schiavo says that feeding a person through a tube is keeping that person alive artificially and his brain-damaged wife Terri Schiavo wants to be starved to death instead of given food and water through a feeding tube. Michael's lawyer, George Felos, is a "right-to-die" advocate who "knows" that Terri wants to be starved to death. (Read on.) And Judge Greer presumably applied the law to the facts, as he routinely does, and respected Terri's wish to die, based on what he considered "clear and convincing evidence." Even though it was oral. And tainted by the self-interest of Michael and...

    George Felos, attorney for Michael Schiavo, said he thinks the legislation would be unconstitutional. It is Terri Schiavo's right under the Florida Constitution to not be kept alive artificially, and the courts have affirmed that, he said. Felos characterized the group's efforts as yet another attempt to undo repeated court rulings in favor of Michael Schiavo.

    CLEARWATER - The name of Karen Ann Quinlan, whose right-to-die case 30 years ago created legal precedent for end-of-life issues, has surfaced again in the case of Terri Schiavo. Schiavo's parents want Judge George Greer to throw out his ruling to remove her feeding tube because his order includes an error about the Quinlan case. Her husband's lawyer called the request invalid and dismissed the error as insignificant. Greer's 2000 order to remove the tube was based on trial testimony from Schiavo's husband and others that she would not want to live on life support. But a friend of Schiavo's,...

Circuit Court Judge George Greer said in a nine-page order that attorneys of parents Robert and Mary Schindler did not have sufficient legal basis to move toward a hearing on the issues they raised last month. The attorneys had asked Greer to set aside his order, which will let...

    George Felos' book, "Litigation as Spiritual Practice," reveals the sick and diabolical thought process of the attorney who is killing Terri Schiavo 1/30/2005 Who is George Felos? He is Michael Schiavo's attorney and has been a key proponent of putting Terri Schiavo to death. To say Felos is a diabolical servant of Satan is an understatement. George Felos' book, "Litigation as Spiritual Practice" (Blue Dolphin Publishing, 2002) contains the following quotes. About the Jews, George Felos wrote, "The Jewish people, long ago in their collective consciousness, agreed to play the role of the lamb whose slaughter was necessary to shock...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- On Wednesday, attorneys for Florida Governor Jeb Bush filed a request with the nation's top court asking it to uphold a law passed by the state legislature that allowed Bush to prevent Terri Schiavo's estranged husband Michael from subjecting her to a painful starvation death. The request asks the Supreme Court to decide if Terri's right to equal treatment under the law has been violated by state courts that overturned Terri's Law, the measure that allowed Bush to save Terri's life. Bush attorney Ken Connor, former head of the Family Research Council and a pro-life advocate,...

My family is so very thankful to the Clearwater Police Department for doing such a thorough and deliberate job with their investigation and for finally proving that these charges were completely baseless. As horrifying as the least six weeks were, I am grateful to the men and women of the Police Department for undertaking their duties seriously and fairly. We are sorry the taxpayers had to pay for an investigation that turned out to be a total waste of law enforcement resources. We have been banned from...

    I am sure that other Freepers have already posted this information somewhere else, but this is such an urgent matter that I am not willing to take the chance that this info may not get out to the public.. At this moment Terri Schiavo is in grave danger, and her supporters need to rally to her aid. Reports have been issued that Terri has begun to vomit. This is very dangerous for Terri. The liquid nutrients she is being fed will likely fill her mouth and then enter into her respiratory tract causing severe pneumonia that would most likely end...
