    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....

    Terri Schiavo became victim of Michigan's Dr. Death Kevin Fobbs March 21, 2006 He was an author of the macabre — an artist who relished in morbid artwork. A failed movie producer who perfected a machine in 1989 called "the Thanatron" — meaning "death machine" in Greek — which he used the very next year to usher in an era — a new era labeled for his moniker, "Dr. Death" inextricably tied to a new culture of death. Approximately 130 people became victims of his death machine — including one 27 year-old Floridian woman. Her name: Terri Schindler Schiavo who...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor used a speech at Georgetown University to attack pro-life lawmakers who sided with Terri Schiavo's parents in their efforts to prevent their daughter's euthanasia death. She claimed a Congressional effort to have federal courts review the case was a first step towards a dictatorship. O'Connor, who backs abortion, announced her retirement last year and was recently replaced by federal appeals court judge Samuel Alito, who pro-life advocates hope will be more open to upholding laws that protect the right to life. "We must be ever-vigilant against those who would...

    TAMPA, Fla. One year ago, everyone was talking about Terri Schiavo. Few knew the 41-year-old severely brain-damaged woman, but they knew her name, from President Bush and Pope John Paul II to the millions of people who were riveted by the wall-to-wall news coverage of her final days. Now her family - parents Robert and Mary Schindler, brother Bobby Schindler and sister Suzanne Schindler Vitadamo - have collaborated on a new book that throws open the curtains on those desperate, emotional times as they fought to keep her alive and watched a private family feud culminate in a surreal public...

    A local hospice wants to know who is trying to sell Terri Schiavo's hospital gown on eBay. The eBay listing claims the gown was owned by Schiavo, the Clearwater woman who died 13 days after being removed from a feeding tube last year after a long court battle. Most people watched the saga of Schiavo's life and death and saw families hurting. But somewhere in America, one person watched and saw the chance to make a buck. The listing popped up on eBay Monday with the title, "Terri Schiavo's hospital gown." The seller claims the gown was worn by Schiavo...

    Terri Schiavo's death is expected to have major political ramifications as pro-lifers declare war on the judiciary and galvanize for the coming fight over Supreme Court vacancies. "We will look at an arrogant, out-of-control, unaccountable judiciary that thumbed their nose at Congress and the president," said House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Texas Republican. "We will look into that." The Rev.

    Diana May of Modesto (California) cried when she heard that Terri Schiavo had died. She never knew Schiavo. Like most people, she watched as a controversy unfolded over whether the 41-year-old woman should live or die. "I've tried not to watch too much of this," May said. "It really hit home." Like Schiavo, May's husband is in what doctors call a persistent vegetative state. Modesto police Sgt.

               I have great respect for Ambassador Keyes, and for his acumen, but his article on World Net Daily suggesting that if Governor Bush does not call out the State Police, or I assume, also the National Guard to save Terri’s life, he is derelict in his duty. Ambassador Keys owes us a better argument than the practically off the cuff argument in his article. Ambassador Keyes is not alone in his harsh criticism of Governor Bush, but I am not with them in this.      When Governor Bush moved the legislature of Florida to pass Terri’s Law it did so...

    America is now a nation ruled by the amoral and fallible will of men. They are called lawyers. The warning has been coming for decades. The current case involving the litigated and legally mandated death sentence of Terri Schiavo has now confirmed our current fate. This should be no surprise. For at least fifty years we have been indoctrinated with the specious argument that a traditional, rational and common moral code of conduct is bourgeois and unsophisticated. This journey of cultural madness has culminated in massive societal confusion regarding whether right and wrong behavior even exists. This is unless a...

    Something else died yesterday morning. No, don't mean Terri Schiavo, that "vegetable" the portside media has been telling us has been deceased all along. What died was trust. To say that it had been at death's door for many years is a truism. But yesterday the trust plighted by men and women through the ceremony, sacrament to some, of marriage, shuffled off a remainder of its mortal coil. You've heard the knell for days, on the subways, the ferryboats, and in the polls. "Well, after all, he was a young man. Why shouldn't he find a life for himself, another...

    Why did Terri Schiavo die? The answer seems easy enough. The actual answer is because her "husband" requested a court to let him starve her, and the court gave him permission to. It is the first example of judicially granted, state-sanctioned homicide in American history. But Michael Schiavo and Judge George Greer were not alone in their willingness to put personal agendas above an innocent woman's constitutional rights to life and liberty. In a match of "manhood," the rhetorical war between the legislative branch and the judicial branch of the federal government – as much as any of the other...

    wASHINGTON, March 31 - The life and death of Terri Schiavo - intensely public, highly polarizing and played out around the clock on the Internet and television- has become a touchstone in American culture. Rarely have the forces of politics, religion and medicine collided so spectacularly, and with such potential for lasting effect. Ms. Schiavo, the profoundly incapacitated woman whose family split over whether she would have preferred to live or die, forced Americans into a national conversation about the end of life. Her case raised questions about the role of government in private family decisions. But her legacy may...

Results of the autopsy may not be released for several weeks, the medical examiner's office said. Husband Michael Schiavo hopes the autopsy will settle questions about her medical condition, but experts differ on whether that will happen.

Her death came less than 12 hours after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected her parents' last appeal and nearly two weeks after doctors, acting on an order issued by a state circuit court judge, removed her life-sustaining feeding tube.

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.

  • CAUSE OF DEATH (What will be written on Terri's Death Certificate?)

    CAUSE OF DEATH [Robert P. George ] As the end nears for Terri Schiavo, one question remains: What will officials record on her death certificate as the cause of death? The truth is that the cause of her death will be malnutrition and/or dehydration. But will officials tell the truth? Or will they sugar coat it with euphemisms, or even record as the cause of death something that did not cause her death, such as brain damage resulting from a loss of oxygen? Scholars studying the practice of euthanasia in the Netherlands noticed from the beginning a tendency of some...

    Hugh's been strong in defense of Terri -- till yesterday, when he devoted a lot of time denouncing those (like Dr. James Kennedy) who have called for Jeb to step forward - despite Judge Greer's injunctions - and take action to save Terri Schiavo from a judicially-decreed death. Hugh was going on about the "rule of law" and quoting the old chestnut from "Man for All Seasons," about how if we tear down the laws to get at the devil, we have nothing to defend ourselves when he turns on us.But Hugh doesn't get it: IT's the ACTIVIST JUDGES who've...

    Florida governor says he doesn't have power from Constitution to intervene Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the man said to be the last hope for Terri Schiavo, says he's powerless to help the brain-injured woman who has been without nourishment for more than nine full days. "I cannot violate a court order," Bush told CNN following Easter church services. "I don't have powers from the United States Constitution or – for that matter from the Florida Constitution – that would allow me to intervene after a decision has been made." To Terri's parents, Bush said, "I can't. I'd love to, but...
  • Schiavo Spokesman: Staff keeping Keyes brief from Gov.!!

    Dear Friend, As of today -- Easter Sunday -- Terri Schiavo is STILL fighting for her life -- which itself is proof that it is NOT her wish to die, as her estranged "husband" keeps claiming. But time is definitely running out. Terri has been starving to death for nine days now. Except for one drop of communion wine that she was allowed on her thickened tongue today, she has had NO food or water for nine days. As you can imagine, as her brother Bobby described her today, she looks like someone in a Nazi concentration camp. She's suffering...
  • The Michael Schiavo guide for murdering your wife and getting away with it.

    Lets say a nursing student, for the sake of the illustration we'll call him “Mike” decided he wanted to kill his wife. Now said wife, oh, let's call her “Terri” had been dieting recently, but was still well within normal weight for her height. “Mike” wanted to do her in, in a way that could be dismissed as “natural causes”. As a nursing student/nurse, he'd have access to the knowledge, equipment and medicine to do so, but what would look natural. Let's say “Mike” took a B-D 3ml 25g1 1/2 syringe (I'm have one setting on my desk in front...

    Gov. Bush Washes Hands of Schiavo Matter by Scott Ott (2005-03-27) -- In a symbolic move, designed to show Terri Schiavo's supporters that he has done all he can do to spare her life, Gov. Jeb Bush today publicly used a disposable moist towlette to "wash his hands of the matter." "I find nothing deserving death in this woman, but I'm only the supreme executive of Florida," the governor told a crowded news conference. "Perhaps if our constitution called for a balance of powers to protect our citizens against judicial abuse, I could do something. But as it stands, she...
  • Money for Terri Went to Attorneys, Michael

    According to the Associated Press, Michael Schiavo sued medical professionals who he said failed to recognize symptoms that caused his wife's heart to stop beating, causing her brain damage. As a result, he won a $1.2 million settlement. At the time, Michael sought the funds with the promise to use the money for Terri Schiavo's care and rehabilitation. As part of the settlement, Michael Schiavo received $300,000, the rest being earmarked for Terri's care and rehabilitation. His attorneys say today most of the money designated for Terri is gone, spent on her care and legal bills. One of his lawyers,...

    It's been pointed out on another thread that the judge in Florida has ordered nothing by mouth for Terri Schiavo.First: Is this true?Second: If so, what is the authority for such an order? Removal of a feeding tube, I can understand, under certain circumstances. This may even be legal in Florida.But nothing by mouth? This is an order to kill her.Where does this power come from? Could he order her shot? Could he order a lethal injection?If not, is it possible that his order is facially illegal?
