    Would you favor it if the government suddenly quit feeding and giving liquids to the political detainees being held at Guantánamo Bay, because they had become an expensive nuisance? Or would you take to the streets to protest against the viciousness of it? Would you be in favor if one of our state governments decided to starve to death its prisoners because they had become too expensive to house? Or would you be demonstrating at prison gates or in front of the Capitol -- objecting to the inhumanity of it? If you believe it would be inhumane and vicious to...

    TAMPA, Fla. — Terri Schiavo's body was cremated Saturday as disagreements continued between her husband and her parents, who were unable to have their own independent expert observe her autopsy.Michael Schiavo has not spoken publicly since his wife's death, but Felos said Saturday: "He's holding up. It's very difficult for him." Michael Schiavo is required to tell his wife's parents of any memorial services he plans for Terri Schiavo and where her ashes are interred.

    Michael Schiavo has said he hopes the autopsy will settle questions about his wife's medical condition, but experts differ on whether that will happen. He declined to comment Friday. Terri Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, and Michael Schiavo spent Friday planning separate funerals for the 41-year-old woman, who died Thursday -- nearly two weeks after her feeding tube was removed.

    ALERT: As you know, Terri Schindler-Schiavo has passed away, the victim of an out-of-control tyrannical judiciary, politicians who couldn't or wouldn't stop the judges, and a man who had abandoned his wife long ago and shouldn't have even been allowed to stay as her guardian. The crowds outside Terri's hospice in Pinellas Park, Florida, are all going home, weary from the battle. While Terri is gone now, we still live to fight another day -- and we WILL fight the judicial tyrants, to honor the memory of Terri. We're already formulating battle plans to move ahead in the War on...
  • Terri Schiavo's CT scan – another physician’s opinion

    American Thinker ^ | March 31, 2005 | Mary L. Davenport, MD
    The amount of medical misinformation put out about Terri Schiavo has been truly stunning. The testimony of Terri’s physicians who believe that some recovery is possible has been largely dismissed. Judge Greer’s court and the media in turn, have focused only on the pessimistic interpretations of the raw data of her CT scan. A physician at a credible physicians’ website has analyzed Terri’s CAT scan and concludes that it has been grossly misrepresented. There is some cerebral atrophy, but it is a completely inaccurate to characterize it as “bag of water.” Furthermore, the author states that “the most alarming thing...
  • 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...

    Don't get me wrong. All weekend I was rooting for Congress to do what it had to do in order to get Terri Schiavo back on her feeding tube. I've had strong reservations about her husband's claim that she once told him never to sustain her life by these devices. I'm particularly uneasy with his claim given that he has spent the last 10 years living with another woman and fathering two children by her. But my personal beliefs have little to do with the sentiments of the American people. And therein floats the tip of an iceberg that could...

    1 Cor 15:35-57 35 But someone may ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?" 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 39 All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and...

    Pinellas Park, FL ( -- Michael Schiavo plans to keep the location of where he will bury Terri Schiavo's ashes a secret and will prevent Terri's family from knowing. His brother told the media on Thursday that Terri's family would show up and cause a spectacle if they found out. "If Mike knew they would come in peace, he would have no problem with it," Scott Schiavo, Michael Schiavo's brother, told AP. 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...

    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...

    (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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. "Terri Schiavo's remains are ready for release to the establishment selected by the legally authorized person, for purposes of final disposition. "

    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...

    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...
