  • I hope that after Terri is saved you will not forget the many others in need. This is from a liberal blog but everything said here is true:


    From DIGBY:

    By now most people who read liberal blogs are aware that George W. Bush signed a law in Texas that expressly gave hospitals the right to remove life support if the patient could not pay and there was no hope of revival, regardless of the patient's family's wishes. It is called the Texas Futile Care Law. Under this law, a baby was removed from life support against his mother's wishes in Texas just this week. A 68 year old man was given a temporary reprieve by the Texas courts just yesterday.

    Those of us who read liberal blogs are also aware that Republicans have voted en masse to pull the plug (no pun intended) on medicaid funding that pays for the kind of care that someone like Terry Schiavo and many others who are not so severely brain damaged need all across this country.

    Those of us who read liberal blogs also understand that that the tort reform that is being contemplated by the Republican congress would preclude malpractice claims like that which has paid for Terry Schiavo's care thus far.

    Those of us who read liberal blogs are aware that the bankruptcy bill will make it even more difficult for families who suffer a catastrophic illness like Terry Schivos because they will not be able to declare chapter 7 bankruptcy and get a fresh start when the gargantuan medical bills become overwhelming.

  • Now time for the Dems to introduce a special tax to keep alive any person in a vegetative state whose family wants them kept alive but who doesn't have the money to pay for it. Let's see if they will put their money where their mouths are. Who should the tax be on? Maybe HMOs. It would be fun to watch Frist on that one.

  • Sherri, dont know if it is quicker to send email or to post here .. have those in front of the hospice make up signs that say michael admitted on CNN - larry king .. we dont know what Terri wanted
    there is a transcript if you would like it

  • Keeka - here's the transcript.
    I don't think that Michael said that.
    http://edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0310/27/lkl.00.html
    Was it some other interview?

    Also, I think it's disgraceful the way Delay and others have slandered this man.

  • anon, where is your proof of slander?

  • Google Larry King, click on link on discussion about Terri Schiavo and scroll down a bit. It is right there after King talks to Michael scumbag adulterer about his in-laws.

  • A review of the transcript of Friday night’s Larry King show when Schiavo and his attorney, George Felos were guests, clearly indicates that Michael Schiavo admitted that he did not know what the wishes of Terri Schindler-Schiavo are in regard to being kept alive by assisted feeding. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0503/18/lkl.01.html

    KING: Have you had any contact with the family today? This is a sad day all the way around, Michael. We know of your dispute.

    M.SCHIAVO: I’ve had no contact with them.

    KING: No contact at all?

    M.SCHIAVO: No.

    KING: Do you understand how they feel?

    M.SCHIAVO: Yes, I do. But this is not about them, it’s about Terri. And I’ve also said that in court. We didn’t know what Terri wanted but this is what we want…..


    Schiavo’s nationally televised admission establishes grounds for him to be charged with perjury and for Gov. Jeb Bush to immediately move to take the disabled woman into protective custody before any further harm is done to her by this attempt at judicial homicide.

    Terri Schiavo, 41, sustained serious brain damage in mysterious circumstances at her home in 1990. At a jury trial in 1993 in a

    i DONT KNOW WHEN THAT TRANSCRIPT YOU POSTED WAS FROM OR IF ITS REAL BUT THIS IS THE TRANSCIPT THAT WAS FRIDAY NIGHT SHOW

  • Inez in Sartre's "No Exit":

    One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are - your life, and nothing else.

  • Maybe we can send Terri to Texas where the Bush "Futile Care Act" can be enforced...

    Stinkin' hypocrite!

  • No, I'd rather send Michael Schiavo to Texas to be tried/condemned/executed as a murderer. In Texas you know he'll get his just punishment.

  • Anonymous, if you can put aside your hatred of Predient Bush for a moment, you must realize that this Bill, if and when it becomes Law, will extend Habeas Corpus to all the victims in Texas as well as Florida. If you care about them, Thank God that GWB is willing to sign it quickly. Two days ago would have been better. Were you lobbying for it's passage then. If so, I say God Bless you. If not, I say Shut Up.

  • I keep reading that Terri is indigent and State and Federal monies are paying for her care.

    Why/how is Terri considered indigent? She is still married and husband and wife are usually financially looked at as one. Pictures of Michael’s house and cars look nothing like something owned by a destitute man.

  • RWNJ,

    I don't believe "anonymous" is going to shut up. He/she is so consumed by hatred that any rational thought processes have become compromised.

    Anyone who posts anonymously is either afraid of shadows, or is embarrassed by their own hyperbole.

    It's truly a shame that they waste Sherri's bandwidth with such drivel. We have much more important matters to discuss. Perhaps we all could simply ignore posters who engage in this sort of practice.

  • Drudge just listed on his site that he will have audio of Terri with her father after the tube was taken out Friday, on his radio show tonight. His show begins at 10 pm.

  • Per protagonist (not a poster I recall from previously) at lgf, Terri's Dad played audio on Drudge where she was obviously cognizant and responding.

  • I listened to the tape on Drudge. It does not convincingly prove anything, in my opinion. However, it certainly raises doubt about her prior diagnoses. There is definitely a "give and take" involved. There is no way they should refuse extension of the feeding until others have the opportunity to review the tape and examine Terri.

    By Blogger Right Wing Nut Job, at 10:53 PM  

  • Thanks for leaving info on the tape of Terri.

    It was originally reported that this audio of Terri is from Friday- after they took out the tube.

    JUST TO CLARIFY!

    According to BOBBY SCHINDLER-- this tape is from 2004- NOT from this pat Friday after the tube was removed.

  • I have yet to read one comment supportive of reinserting the feeding tube that shows anything--anything--other than blatant ignorance of the history of this case. Rumors of Michael Schiavo's abusing his wife--disproved after intensive investigation; allegations of Mr. Schiavo's being in this for the money--the money's been handled by a trust fund. He's never had any access to it, and, in any case, there's not much left. Those pictures of "smiles" and "responses" that keep making the rounds on tv--doctors (as opposed to ignorant wingnuts) explain those as being part of a random display of various expressions and noises that are not uncommon to people in a persistent vegetative state (which she has been diagnosed as being in by several physicians.) This woman's brain literally is goo. There was a scan of her brain on tv the other night and a scan of a normal brain. Her brain has essentially dissolved. A parade of experts have judged that she is not capable of having a thought, not able to experience the pain of hunger, not able to communicate ---and she's not going to get better.
    You people would know all this if you made the smallest effort to confirm the facts of this situation before trying to lynch the husband.
    You should be ashamed of yourselves.
