Starving for a Fair DiagnosisTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
And, quite apart from the question of Terri's therapy and care, it is entirely likely that Terri has never been properly diagnosed. Terri is usually described as being in a Persistent Vegetative State (PVS), and indeed Judge Greer ruled as a finding of fact that she is PVS; but this diagnosis and finding were arrived at in a way that has many neurologists expressing surprise and dismay. - Fr. Rob Johansen
By Father Rob Johansen writing in The National Review - Terri Schiavo is not out of medical options. But that's the "fact" her husband wants you to believe.
Terri Schiavo lies in a Florida hospice, subject to a judge's order that will cause her to die of starvation and dehydration commencing this Friday, March 18, at 1:00 P.M. Her parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, have fought for over a decade to prevent her death. They have repeatedly gone to court in their efforts to stop Terri's husband, Michael, from removing the tube that provides her with food and water.
