    Months after her death by court-ordered dehydration, the Justice Department has ordered an investigation of a complaint alleging discrimination against Terri Schiavo under the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Rehabilitation Act. The Justice Department's Disability Rights Section directed the Office for Civil Rights of the Department of Health and Human Services in July to conduct the probe, reported the Empire Journal, an Internet news site that has published numerous investigative stories on the Schiavo case. Schiavo died March 31 at age 41 at Woodside Hospice in Pinellas Park, Fla., after her estranged husband Michael Schiavo obtained judicial approval to...

    We make a lot of assumptions about those who have been brain damaged the way Terri Schiavo has. We see them lying there, changed from the person they used to be to something different. No one wants to be there. We are repulsed, turned away, and think it is perhaps the worst of fates. And yet how little we know about what's going on inside a person's head during all of this. We could learn more, like by using MRIs to see how much cognitive ability is really left, but too often in our rush to disassociate ourselves from the...
  • 'Roe' Asks Court to Overturn Abortion Ruling

    The woman once known as "Jane Roe" has asked the Supreme Court to overturn its landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion 32 years ago. Norma McCorvey, whose protest of Texas' abortion ban led to the 1973 ruling, contends in a petition received at the court Tuesday that the case should be heard again in light of evidence that the procedure may harm women. "Now we know so much more, and I plead with the court to listen for witnesses and re-evaluate Roe v. Wade," said McCorvey, who says she now regrets her role in the case. The politically charged...

    Schiavo May Not Wait For Final Say By DAVID SOMMER Published: May 8, 2004 CLEARWATER - Michael Schiavo will not necessarily wait for the state Supreme Court to rule in the battle over his wife's fate before again trying to remove her feeding tube, his attorney said Friday. Schiavo could ask a court to lift an automatic stay in the case that prevents him from removing the feeding tube so his wife can die, attorney George Felos said. If the stay were lifted, Terri Schiavo's feeding tube could be removed without further court action, Felos said. For six years,...

    What strange times are these that we argue over whether to dehydrate to death a living human being. But thanks to medical technology that makes gods of beings unworthy, here we are. The Florida case of Terri Schiavo, 13 years in a "vegetative" (but wakeful) state and the subject of warring factions concerning her fate, is a nightmare in anyone's wolf-stalked night. Simply distilled: Her parents want to her alive; her husband wants her dead. Terri collapsed in 1990 from unknown causes and became severely cognitively disabled. Husband Michael has been trying for years to remove his wife's feeding tube...

    As you may already know, Gov Jeb Bush has not yet taken steps to protect the life of Terri Schindler-Schiavo. This is in spite of memorandums of law from several notable legal scholars ensuring him that he has the legal authority and obligation to do so. People in the Tallahassee area of Florida are encouraged to hold vigil at the capitol offices as well as the Governor's mansion. Signs and banners can be fashioned inexpensively and will assist you in getting your message across. Please spread the word. Thank you. -phenn-
