Terri Schaivo In Trouble
Unless something changes, Michael Schiavo will remove his wife Terri's feeding tube tommorrow, after which she will begin to die a slow, agonizing death by starvation which could take several weeks.

Despite the fact that she is not in a persistent vegetative state, despite the fact that her original injury occured under very suspicious circumstances, despite the fact that she communicates with her family, despite the fact that her parents are willing to assume responsibility for her care and rehabilitation, despite the fact that some doctors believe that if she were to receive rehabilitative treatment (which her husband has denied her) she would have a chance for some significant recovery, despite the fact that she has exhibited horror when being told of her impending death, and despite the fact that the people of the state of Florida overwhelmingly passed a law in late 2003 protecting Terri's life, an unelected judge has again determined (along with her husband, who lives with another woman and has two children by that woman) that Terri must be executed.

Operation Rescue is leading the effort to save Terri's life right now, and asks that people contact Gov. Jeb Bush at 850-488-4441 or via email at jeb.bush@myflorida.com. They're also asking thousands to turn out in person at Woodside Hospice, 6774 102nd Ave. North in Pinellas Park, Florida, where Terri Schiavo lives. In the face of this sort of calculated injustice, it would seem that not many defensive measures could seem too extreme.

I would add that the legal reasoning for overturning Terri's Law wasn't convincing.


Thanks for putting the info out there. It's the only way to make a difference on this.
Just doing my part. The situation boggles my mind. Let's just assume she's a vegetable. Let us take care of her. We will support her financially.
