Crunch Time for Terri Schiavo


Michael Schiavo wants to kill his wife by starvation and dehydration. He claims that a feeding tube, to keep her nurished, is "artificial life support" and, therefore, against her allegedly stated wish not to be kept alive artificially.

Nearly a year and a half ago Michael Schiavo had succeeded in getting a court to order that Terri's feeding tube be removed. Her starvation and dehydration had begun to cause great pain and discomfort until Governor Jeb Bush led an effort to reinsert her feeding tube.

But that was then and this is now and Terri Schiavo is once again in grave danger.

For background on the case during the 2003 deathwatch, read these excellent articles by Nat Hentoff, Wesley J. Smith and Jennifer Smith.

Michael Schaivo's efforts to kill his wife may finally "pay off", if you know what I mean. She may, once again, begin to die horribly in less than 24 hours.

For a complete history with timelines, constant updates and info on what we can do to try to save Terri's life, visit Blogs For Terri.

Her parents can't love her enough to save her. It's up to us, folk.

Praises to Jody and many others for keeping this story on their front burner. Time is critical and it isn't getting any coverage in the MSM, nor is there much coverage in the Blogosphere.

Thanks so much for highlighting this case on your blog! There is still time to help Terri and more people who know the truth, that she is not in a coma. That she is awake and is responsive, the more that can be done to help her. Thanks again! :)
