Schiavo Case: "Another Station in Her Calvary"

Topics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts

This posting occurs as yet another Federal Judge has parroted the ongoing judicial theme here in the United States - "Kill Terri Schiavo." Constantly on the media we hear about 20 judges having reviewed the case when in fact, only one judge actually has reviewed the pertinent facts, Judge George Greer, with the rest simply ruling on his right to make the ruling. The actual facts in the case have only been reviewed by one county judge in a backwater community in Pinellas County (heart of a euthanasia and guardianship community), Florida.

The rejection by a U.S. appeals court to give food and water to Terri Schiavo is "another painful station in her calvary," says L'Osservatore Romano.

In a front-page article, today's Italian edition of the Vatican's semiofficial newspaper commented on the decision of Schiavo's parents to appeal to federal courts to save their daughter's life.

Later, the U.S. Supreme Court also turned down a request to order the reinsertion of a feeding tube to keep Schiavo alive. Her husband wants to let her die.

"Unfortunately, until now, in her painful journey Terri seems to have come across executioners -- from the one who decided for the first time to let her die, to the judges who have now signed her sentence," stated the newspaper article.

"And this, despite the opinion of most of American society and the intervention of President George W. Bush himself, who expressed his regret over the judge's decision," added the newspaper. "Meanwhile, unaware of the media noise caused by her case, Terri is dying in silence."

Please always remember the fact that Terri did well in her initial rehabilitation efforts. She was learning to walk again
when Michael removed her from therapy. Rehabilitation doctors recommneded that she be admitted to Gainesville Rehabilitation Center yet , Michael instead put her in a nursing home isolating her from any hope of continued recouperation of her capabilities. As the cerebral fluid accumulated in her brain further incapacitating her cognitively and motorically, Michael
refused to have the fluid medically drained (which would revialize diminished capabilites) and instead capitalized on this aggrevated state as further proof of she had "no brain left." Check the medical records....Michael did make sure her progress was reversed.

Whether Terri is functioning at a sub-human level will be a debatable question for skeptics and depressives long into the future robbing Terri of her longevity and place there .

But for certain, Michael's barbaric starvation remedy for the "Terri Problem" is unquestionably the most sub human and despicably cruel solution to come from the modern world second only to the Third Reich. Once upon a time , America mobilized and sent hundreds of thousands of soldiers to fight against the Third Reich in mortal battle to end just this type of genocide. And only 60 years later , not one American person will risk arrest or political future to stop it.
That's worse than scary.

If we say that because Terri's brain scan (fluid that can be drained ) is imperfect its OK to execute her, do you see the dangerous place that puts us?. .Especially because the neurological professionals can not even agree amongst themselves. on even the simplist of diagnosis or prognosis of conditions like Terri's. Next the executions will be justified on the basis of damaged DNA, or blood chemistry , or the diseases of our parents, or imperfect siblings........Medical examinations can not be the deciding variable for justifying genocide. Terri is damaged and imperfect for sure, it repulses her husband and causes most to become distanced emotionally .but she did not ask to die by any strict standard of printed law. She is dying because of Greer's interpretation. . Every American who wants to have resuscitative efforts knows now that they must have their wishes in writing. The Constitution is no longer enough to guarantee us life.

We have hundreds if not thousands of Rehabiltation Facilities in America specifically for the rehabilitation and recovery of Brain injured adults ......THAT is the regular modern standard of treatment and care. NOT Court Ordered deaths.
Terri's death is completely unnescessary in our modern society. There is no cure...but there is recouperation.Terri was revived on the night of her collapse. DONE. We should not be permitted to reverse that . Now the next phase would be to responsibly engage her in rehabilatative rigors. In stead Terri was confined , deprived of vital stimulazation and warehoused. Short of starvation and dehydration , as a special educator, I know of nothing more cruel. In effect what the courts allowed Michael to do was to say "oops" seven years into recovery, long after Terri had established stable health ... The courts gave him the permission to literally drag her backwards in time to that original February night and undo the resuscitation. and undo any pathetic life she had struggled to establish since Michael never provided forany life supporting rrecovery.

The devil here is Michael Schiavo's misplaced loyalties. The American Court is the horse he rides. It is his civil rights that have been supported......Terri's rights were violated when she was denied a legitimate augmented communication system. that could have enabled her to express her own wishes ...all due because of the negative forecast speculated by imperfect neurological practitioners . THEY DO NOT KNOW . NOTHING IS FOR SURE....What part of that does Judge Greer not understand? .And what is lost by trying? No Medical professional has ever measured accurately .the unpredictable variable of HUMAN POTENTIAL and DETERMINATION .Lets give her a chance to express her desires separate from her estranged husband's self -seving selective memory. The freedom of speech also includes being allowed access to speech


At the end of this, MIchael can go home to the comfort of his wife and family in their spacious residence and luxury cars, while Terri goes to her cold coffin. . Her broken wheelchair: still not repaired in 5 years.


God only knows. When after we have examined all the facts , if the issues are still not absolute and if we can still say" "ONLY God knows for sure ", that is our red flag. Truly, if only God knows, than we certainly do not . And I was taught that only when we have the right answers can we pass the test. If we don't have the right answers then we can not play or "pretend"or fake being God. And that applies to every judge posing as the final judgement.

I have no stomach for what Michael did to Terri from 1990 to now, and in solidarity with her suffering humaity, I , too, have not eaten in 6 days. I will eat when Terri is allowed nutrition. again.
Michael lost my support when he ridiculed Terri as a "houseplant" on national TV. That would be verbal abuse when referenced to any able bodied person. But know for sure, where there is smoke there is certainly fire. There is no such thing as a little bit of abuse. Where you find one incident , you will find others.
Where is the public outrage.? Did you hear any public out cry? Neither did I. On the basis of her imperfect brain scan , is Terri not deserving of an abuse investigation ?

I am afraid there are more Michael Schiavos out there in the public than we care to realize.

Can someone appeal to feed her orally?

Praying for divine sustenance for Terri
