    FULL TITLE: Jahi McMath: Mom and lawyer say only remaining option for brain-dead girl is a New York care facility OAKLAND -- A Los Angeles-area long-term care facility that had been willing to accept Jahi McMath has withdrawn its offer, leaving a New York hospital as the only apparent option for the brain-dead girl as a 5 p.m. Monday deadline to remove her from a ventilator approaches, her mother and attorney said Sunday. "I just found out that the facility my daughter was supposed to be going to has backed out," Jahi's mother, Nailah Winkfield, wrote on the family's fundraising...

    At a moving talk at the National Right to Life Convention in Dallas, Br. Paul O’Donnell and Bobby Schindler (brother of Terri Schiavo) shared their testimonies of losing those close to them. In Bobby’s case, as America knows, this loss occurred in an inhumane and devastating matter. Familiar with the tragedy of losing a loved one, Br. Paul was inspired by the plight of the Schindler family during Terri’s last days. “I knew that my community [Franciscan Brothers of Peace] needed to do something to help,” he shared. So he and his brothers drove to Orlando to help the Schindler...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Grand Junction proclaimed Monday as National Health Care Decisions Day, urging all citizens to make their health care wishes known through advance care planning for managing a serious illness, or end-of-life care. Living wills and advance directives are documents that spell out your wishes if you should become incapacitated due to a medical crisis. Millions of people began filling out living wills and advance directives after the 1976 Supreme Court case of Karen Ann Quinlan, whose parents battled with hospital staff who sought to keep Quinlan alive through artificial means, even though she had lapsed into...

  • Terri Schiavo Needs Your Help

    Dear Friends, The story of Terri Schiavo is a case that could have major implications in the fight to preserve the dignity of life, especially for persons who are handicapped, elderly or sick. Terri's family is inspirational in their devotion to her care. I have met them several times and they have kept me informed of her plight. I usually do not send out emails with requests for donations, but I felt the need to make an exception in this situation. Detailed explanations of current and past legal events are featured on Terri's website at Terri's Website. I especially recommend...
  • Teaching Euthanasia (in American Catholic universities)

    Teaching EuthanasiaBy Patrick J.Reilly The intense battle to prevent Terri Schiavo's husband from removing her feeding tube was horrible enough. To think that some American Catholic universities—and their ethics, theology, law, and medical professors—bear some responsibility for Schiavo's  slow death is almost too much to imagine. Yet prior to Schiavo's death, professors from top Catholic universities helped convince the courts and the public that removing her feeding tube was acceptable and consistent with Catholic teaching—even while the Vatican said it was euthanasia. Several professors sought to publicly undermine Pope John Paul II's clear statements on the moral obligation to feed and hydrate...
