    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...

    CLEARWATER, March 16, 2006 ( – The family of Terri Schindler Schiavo are working to establish a national day of remembrance in her name to commemorate the growing number of patients who are being killed in hospitals by removal of food and hydration assistance. Robert Schindler and National Urban Policy Action Council president Kevin Fobbs have joined forces in an effort to help disabled people and other avoid Terri's fate. The goal is to gather a million signatures to petition state officials to establish March 31 as a national day of remembrance, similar to the annual remembrance of the anniversary...
  • Ex Supreme Court Justice O'Connor Bashes Pro-Life Advocates on Terri Schiavo

    Washington, DC ( -- 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...
  • Pro-lifers hear call to overhaul 'arrogant' judiciary

    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. Flip Benham, director of Operation Rescue, lamented, "The courts of this land have become the tool, in the hands of the devil, by which the culture of death has found access." Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh bluntly blamed the...

    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...

    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. Steve May, now 48, went into a coma after a fleeing suspect crashed a stolen pickup into his squad car in the airport neighborhood on July 29, 2002. ....snip.... A few weeks after...

               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...
  • The Wages of Moral Relativism - (the legacy of Terri Schaivo's death)

    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...

    Normally I add a paragraph of two of explanation of my subject matter for the benefit of any readers that may not be familiar with the subject that I am addressing. In this case, if you have not heard of the Terri Schiavo case, I suggest you quit now and read something else. Maybe no other case in recent history, including the O. J. Simpson and Scott Peterson cases, has generated as much controversy as the Terri Schiavo case. I can't begin to count how many articles and opinions and I've read and heard in the past couple of weeks....

'Judge' Greer, William Rice, the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Clearwater, Florida, confirmed the news to the Baptist Press news agency on Friday.

    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...

    The medical examiner completed the autopsy of Terri Schiavo on Friday, clearing the way for the release of the body to her husband, who plans to cremate her remains and bury the ashes without telling his in-laws when or where. 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. Michael Schiavo and his in-laws spent Friday planning separate funerals for the 41-year-old woman, who died Thursday - 13 days after her feeding...

(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...

    Husband's brother says he'll never forgive Schindlers(CNN) -- Terri Schiavo's death Thursday did nothing to lessen the bitter feud between the Schiavos and the Schindlers -- with both sides continuing their war of words even as they mourned. 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. (Full story) She was 41 and had been incapacitated since 1990, when she suffered a heart attack that caused permanent brain damage. None...
