This year marks the 18th anniversary of Terri Schiavo’s death, when on March 18, 2005, Florida Judge, George W. Greer’s order to have Terri’s feeding tube removed was enforced, sentencing Terri to a slow death by starvation and dehydration. It took almost two-weeks.
The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network marks the final, horrific days of Terri Schiavo’s inhumane death. This is not only to remember Terri, but to call attention to the countless people who are currently suffering slow, agonizing deaths in hospices, nursing homes, and hospitals in America and around the world.
Jesse Jackson, in Florida, Lends Support to Terri Schiavo
(BP) – Calling the Terri Schiavo situation “one of the most profound moral and ethical issues of our time,” civil rights leader Jesse Jackson prayed with her parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, and their family March 29 while spending a few hours outside the hospice where the disabled Florida woman is in her 12th day of a court-ordered starvation.
And in a development the afternoon of March 29 at the hospice, Thaddeus Malanowski emerged from the Pinellas Park facility and said he had been told he may not administer communion to Terri — and was threatened with arrest if he proceeds to administer the sacrament. CONTINUE
