  • Sherri,

    I think it is really important for the public to understand that the court is issuing this order because they believe this is what Terri would want. Let alone the fact that suicide is illegal and assisted suicide is certainly illegal, I think we need to focus on the fact that Terri did not have any formal directive and the assumption that it was her desire to be subjected to a long, painful death is based solely on the testimony of Michael Schiavo, the man who wants her dead.

    What ever happened to hearsay being inadmissible in court? The court is accepting Michael Schiavo's claims that Terri told him she didn't want to be kept alive by artificial means as fact. Where is the do not resuscitate order? Where is the will? Where is the directive? They don't exist! So why has Judge Greer not thrown this matter out in its entirety? He should have simply said, "I'm sorry Mr. Schiavo, but you have no compelling proof that allowing your wife to die would be a fulfillment of her wishes. I have no choice but to dismiss this case based on insufficient evidence." End of story!!!!!!

    How is this any different than the mother, Carol Carr that shot her two sons to death to end the suffering that they were subjected to as a result of advanced Huntington's disease? What about good old Dr. Kevorkian? Why is this type of behavior okay for Michael Schiavo but not anyone else?

    STOP THE MADNESS!!!!!!!!!!

  • These people are all in bed together... the judge, the attorney, the people on the board of the hospice where Terri is being held captive.

    It is a twisted story...

    I think Terri's parents should be able to have emergency custody od Terri while her husband is investigated.

    WHile under the care of her parents-- they can run tests and get her therapy....

    A bone scan to prove that she sustanined injuries while living with Michael would at least be helpful to keep Terri in their care-- but alas-- Judge is just not interested in the law.... as usual these days- he is interested in HIS AGENDA!

  • Without a lot of legalese, its hard to explain why Terri's alleged atatement was not thrown out as hearsay. But it is not hearsay under the rules of evidence. I nonetheless agree with Sherri that her husband's testimony is incredibly uncompelling. I cannot imagine a death penalty case where the only evidence is from somebody who stands to inherit from the alleged perpetrator. No jury would ever convict. No life insurer would ever pay death benefits. No ordinary human being can help but continue to pray for Terri.

  • Remember this case from a while ago:

    Father 'keeps brain-damaged baby alive to avoid murder charge'
    http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_568418.html

    A man suspected of causing brain damage to his baby is keeping him alive on a life support machine in an apparent bid to avoid murder charges.

    Moises Ibarra, 23, is in a Los Angeles jail accused of shaking seven-and-a-half month old Christopher and throwing him into his cot.

    He has refused to allow his son to die for almost four months because he is hoping for a miracle.

    Mother Tamara Sepulveda, who is also brain-damaged, told the Los Angeles Times she wanted to turn off the life support machine and let him die. She claimed that keeping him alive artificially was torture.

    Doctors have said Christopher will never recover from his injuries.

    If he dies, a charge against Ibarra would be upgraded from assault to murder, prosecutors said. He is also charged with child abuse.

    A court must now decide the fate of Christopher. Orange County social workers have taken temporary custody of the baby, arguing that neither parent is fit to care for him.

    Lawyer Harold LaFlamme, who has been appointed by a judge to represent Christopher's interests, said he planned to seek multiple medical opinions on the baby's condition.

    "Am I doing him service by keeping him alive? I don't know," he told the LA Times. "If the medical community says this is cruel to keep him alive, then I might have to make some choices."

    He said he did not know how long it would be before a decision was made. Ms Sepulveda, 23, told the paper she was sure her child deserved to be put out of his misery.

  • Putting me old Carnac the Magnificant hat on I feel that Sherri will be having some BIG news soon. I don't know, just sayin...

  • - For whatever reason the idea of accepting the testimony of a proven adulterer in both regards to this supposed claim that she made that comment and allowing her (ex) to remain her gardian certainly raises questions of the motives of the major players in this travisty of injustice... If I was the parents I'd be trying to file charges of attempted murder against a whole list of people.....It probably wouldn't fly but maybe it would buy some more time and make the perps in this crime attempt think twice.... The stay is only for one day so she needs another winning event.....

  • - I'm not a lawyer but it seems her parents atty. could mine some gold using the idea that her civil rights are being denied.... file for a civil rights hearing in Federal court and gain a stay on that grounds.....Maybe even reverse the whole process that way.....
