    Ann Arbor Examiner ^ | February 18, 2010 | Kevin Fobbs
    To say that the purposeful murder of an innocent human being is tragic would be truthful, right? To murder an innocent woman who was taken from the bosom of her family was wrong. To have it done with the self-serving suspect-expedient reasoning used by Michael Schiavo’s medical authorities in state of Florida and political anti-life activists in Washington and across the nation was shame before God. In cities like Ann Arbor, Cleveland, Boston, St. Louis and many others, faith leaders as well as followers of the pro-life movement can be buoyed by the news of a recent published medical study...

    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....

    Congressional and state lawmakers offered their condolences Thursday to the family of Terri Schiavo (search) and said the severely brain-damaged woman's death left many emotional issues to be dealt with. "Today, millions of Americans are saddened by the death of Terri Schiavo," President Bush said just before commenting on a weapons of mass destruction report issued by a blue-ribbon commission on Thursday. Saying Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler (search), displayed "grace and dignity" throughout the long, emotional ordeal, Bush urged those grieving to "continue to work to build a culture of life where all Americans are welcomed and valued...

    Pinellas Park, FL ( -- A leading Catholic priest who visited Terri Schiavo on two separate occasions in the hours before her death says Terri was in a weakened medical condition from 13 days of starvation but was responsive until her death. The disabled woman even prayed with her family. "Last night, I spent about two hours with her until past midnight, together with Bobby Schindler and Suzanne, and then again this morning for about an hour and a half, and then right up until about ten minutes before she died," Father Frank Pavone said. Pavone, the director of Priests...

    By the time you read this, Terri Schiavo may well be dead, and America will have taken the next step down the road to democide. While the brothers Bush may not have found it within their executive powers to prevent a woman from being legally starved to death, they did manage to con an entire nation into thinking that they did not act because they could not. This is most unfortunate, because it is quite clear that neither George Bush nor his brother Jeb ever had any intention of saving Mrs. Schiavo from death by starvation. Like Pontius Pilate, they...

    Well, it’s finally happened. We now live in a country where judges have officially obtained deity status. With Roe v. Wade, judges claimed the right to determine who has the privilege of birth. With the Terri Schiavo case, activist judges now claim the power to determine when we all have to die. Some would claim this view to be a little extreme. But the facts are these: a severely disabled woman in Florida is being starved to death because a tiny number of judges have determined that her life is not worth living anymore. Terri is not a vegetable. She...

    Schiavo Videotape Misleading, Experts Say Wed Mar 23, 2005 10:06 PM GMT WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The videotape that runs endlessly on television stations around the world shows an apparently smiling Terri Schiavo being caressed by her mother's loving hand. She seems to look deeply, even lovingly, into the off-camera eyes of her mother. Schiavo's parents and their supporters, including doctors in Congress, have used the tape as evidence the 41-year-old brain-damaged woman is at least occasionally aware of her surroundings and might even be revived from her condition. They are fighting to get her feeding tube reinserted against the wishes...

    PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) -- Armed with a new law rushed through Congress over the weekend, the attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents pleaded with a judge Monday to order the brain-damaged woman's feeding tube reinserted. U.S. District Judge James Whittemore did not immediately make a ruling after the two-hour hearing, and he gave no indication on when he might act on the request. The hearing came three days after the feeding tube was removed. Doctors have said Schiavo could survive one to two weeks without the tube. During the hearing, David Gibbs, an attorney for the parents, said that forcing...

    There may be a split amongst conservatives over whether congressional action to allow a federal court to have jurisdiction over the Terri Schiavo case represents a proper defense of a citizen's right to life or an abandonment of the conservative principle of state's rights in favor of grandstanding, but ABC's World News Tonight on Friday approached the subject purely from the left, attributing nefarious and illegitimate motives to conservatives without any mention of how virtually no Democrats had risen in opposition. "We're going to begin tonight with the extraordinary last-minute attempt by members of the Congress to interfere, or to...

    The right to live, or more specifically, the right not to be killed, is a fundamental right. And it's a right recognized in our founding document, the Declaration of Independence. So ingrained in our society is the notion of life, that the 8th Amendment prohibits "cruel and usual punishment" (even short of death) and the 14th Amendment prohibits states from depriving any person of life without due process of law. This has nothing to do with federalism, unless you ignore the 8th and 14th Amendments. (Unlike the Left, that contorts the 14th Amendment, I'm recognizing its literal meaning.) What really...

    Federal Intervention in Schiavo Case Prompts Broad Public Disapproval Analysis by GARY LANGER Mar. 21, 2005 - Americans broadly and strongly disapprove of federal intervention in the Terri Schiavo case, with sizable majorities saying Congress is overstepping its bounds for political gain. The public, by 63 percent-28 percent, supports the removal of Schiavo's feeding tube, and by a 25-point margin opposes a law mandating federal review of her case. Congress passed such legislation and President Bush signed it early today. That legislative action is distinctly unpopular: Not only do 60 percent oppose it, more -- 70 percent -- call...

    Virginia Congressman Jim Moran briefly crossed paths with the brother of a severely brain-damaged woman Sunday, but refused to reconsider his position on her case. Terry Schiavo's brother, Bobby Schindler, shook Moran's hand in the House Press Gallery before launching into a passionate defense of legislation making its way through Congress tonight. The bill would effectively take Schiavo's fate out of Florida state courts, where judges ordered the feeding tube removed on Friday, and allow Schiavo's parents to take their case to a federal judge. Schindler gave Moran a CD-Rom with footage of his sister. Moran said he would review...

    Words are so easy to use. Words mean things. Words are also easily used, especially when the right words elude. In Florida, Terri Schiavo is now waiting to die. Does she know it? You can be assured she does. Can she speak about it? No. Does that mean she is in a 'vegetative state'? NO! But what is a 'vegetative state'? According to Dr. Jeffrey Frank, director of neurological and neurosurgical intensive care at the University of Chicago, "A person in a vegetative state is 'awake but not aware,'...

    WASHINGTON -- A House Democrat trying to stop legislation backed by Terri Schiavo's family turned down a request to reconsider his position from her brother when the two ran into each other Sunday in the House Press Gallery. A little awkwardly, Bobby Schindler and Rep. James P. Moran, D-Va., shook hands. Schindler then launched into a passionate defense of the legislation. The bill would effectively take Schiavo's fate out of Florida state courts, where judges ordered the feeding tube removed on Friday, and allow Schiavo's parents to take their case to a federal judge.

    Terri Schiavo and the soul of America By Lisa Fabrizio © 2005 It is often said by abortion supporters that a fetus is not a baby until it can survive independently outside the mother's womb. This is, of course, a specious argument since this "survival" is not possible without the care and nourishment of others, either pre or post birth. This is true not only of infants and children, but of the sick, disabled and elderly as well. But if certain right-to-death groups get their way this week, you can add Terri Schiavo's name to the growing list of...

That's a conspiracy I would like to join. == "... despite numerous reports by nurses and others that she is a vital and responsive young woman of 41 who smiles at and recognizes her family..." == Husband did not administer CPR.... == Death Troll senators using Terri as a bargaining chip!
