WORLD Radio: Terri Schiavo Revisited

(WORLD) – Tomorrow marks eighteen years since the death of Terri Schiavo. You may remember her story as a bitter legal battle over a brain damaged young woman’s right to live or right to die. If you listened to Season One of Lawless, you heard the start of this story. But only the start.

REICHARD: On one side, a husband who says he’s trying to fulfill his wife’s wishes. His attorney champions law and reason, but also claims to commune with a higher power through his own spiritual awakening.

On the other side, a family who wants to save their daughter. Backing them: a host of supporters, including civil rights attorneys, doctors, and disability groups, also activists willing to do just about anything to keep Terri alive. Legally or otherwise. CONTINUE
