Press Conference and Protest Details--

When: Sunday, February 27, starting with a Press Conference at 2 PM

Who: Christians and concerned citizens of Southern California

Why: To give a voice to Terri Schindler Schiavo and all other disabled people of America

"It has been called euthanasia, and it's been called mercy killing, but no matter what you call it, the starvation of Terri Schiavo, like the death of Maggie, is simply the execution of a disabled and innocent person." --  Arianna Grumbine of Survivors

"Clint Eastwood speaks out of both sides of his mouth.  In a recent interview, Mr. Eastwood said that he agreed with the priest in his movie that condemned euthanasia, yet there is no doubt Mr. Eastwood's movie is an unabashed endorsement of killing the handicapped.  So we ask Mr. Eastwood the question; 'Would you kill Terri Schiavo?'"  -- Jennifer Mason of Survivors

"Movies like Million Dollar Baby that glorify the act of killing and treat a killer as a hero, are extremely dangerous and pose a serious treat to all persons with disabilities." Bobby Schindler, the brother of Terri Schindler Schiavo

For on-site interviews call: Arianna Grumbine - (cell) (310) 850-7026; Cheryl Conrad - (cell) (909) 213- 8472
