  • call for Terri Schiavo hearings in Congress

    04/27/2005 5:28:39 PM PDT · by david ford · 17 replies · 486+ views
    I'm quite upset over the far-left-wing media's shoddy reporting re: Terri's actual condition. She'd be alive today in her minimal level of consciousness and still able to feel pain if the old media had reported accurately on her actual condition. 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...
  • Schiavo Case Spurs More Christophobia

    I talked about Christophobia in my book "Persecution," written almost two years ago, so I hope no one accuses me of stealing the term. But it is rearing its head again in light of the Schiavo case. It makes a lot of people, including some Christians, even Republican Christians, when Christians join together to influence current events or politics. Today, former Missouri Senator and friend of the family, John Danforth, published an op-ed in the New York Times lamenting the increasing Christianization of the Republican Party -- my paraphrase. Danforth's column begins: By a series of recent initiatives, Republicans have...

    --- Terri Schiavo and the Culture of Death Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas March 25, 2005 "But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death." (Proverbs 8:36) America as of late has been inundated with a steady dose of death. Innocent blood is flowing unabated throughout our nation. It appears that the American dream of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness is hemorrhaging and becoming a nightmare right before our very eyes. The nightly news lists the litany of woe and murderous rampages that are savaging our land. "Four dead in Dallas," "Four...

    Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman at the heart of a bitter legal dispute, has died, a spokesman for her parents has said. Mrs Schiavo's feeding tube was disconnected on 18 March, following a seven-year battle through the courts. Her husband Michael Schiavo had said his wife would not have wanted to live in her current condition. The 41-year-old's parents fought to the highest level of the US courts system to keep their daughter alive.

    San Diego -- NOW THAT Terri Schiavo has died, many of the questions the country has been wrestling with are moot.It no longer matters which doctor had the right diagnosis, or whether Schiavo's husband or parents had her best interests at heart, or whether the federal government should have been involved, or whether this was a case that was best handled by doctors and family members as opposed to politicians and judges.

    CLEARWATER, Fla. A Florida judge is keeping some records of investigations into Terri Schiavo's treatment out of the hands of the media. The St. Petersburg Times wanted access to summaries from the state Department of Children and Families. The agency launched dozens of investigations into complaints that the brain-damaged woman was mistreated. Some were based on bone scans showing Schiavo suffered fractures. Others were based on statements she made to family and friends that she was unhappy in her marriage. Schiavo's husband has denied harming her. Circuit Judge George Greer has denied the request -- saying the records belong to...

    On March 31, 2005, thirty years after feminism’s hey-day in the 1970s, a woman died from dehydration, on the orders of her adulterous husband, who was supported by the courts in his quest to end his wife’s life. 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. Mr. Schiavo subsequently refused to allow rehabilitative care for his wife. There are other reasons to...

    Dr. Cyril H. Wecht, the well-known forensic pathologist and coroner of Allegheny County, Pa., told listeners of a morning radio show that he was denied permission to observe Terri Schiavo's autopsy, despite the wishes of her parents. A medical examiner in Pinellas County, Florida, is conducting an autopsy that could help determine what Schiavo's state of consciousness was and whether she was abused by her husband, as the Schindlers allege. Wecht, appearing on the syndicated America's Morning Show with Quinn and Rose, based in Pittsburgh, said that an investigator working for the Schindler's law firm had called him on Thursday...

    How are we to explain liberal's and leftists' support for disconnecting Terri Schiavo from her feeding tube and making her die a slow death, while she is guarded by police officers who prevent anyone from even putting a drop of water to her lips? And how are we to explain the liberals' belief that conservatives, who want to prevent this horror from occurring, are religious dictators intruding into a purely private matter? Most people think that the liberals are driven by their pro-abortion ideology, which takes the form of opposition to the Christian idea that Terri's radically limited life is...

    PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - Medical examiners concluded an autopsy on Terri Schiavo on Friday, and prepared to release her remains to family members who continued to fight bitterly over the case of the brain-damaged woman who became the flashpoint for a nationwide debate over right-to-die issues. "The examination included routine forensic autopsy procedures, supplemented by full post mortem X-rays," the Pinellas County, Fla., medical examiner's office said in a statement.

    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.

    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.

    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...
