March 2005

The following comes from Toronto Free Press: by Judi McLeod, EditorThursday, March 31, 2005 Every time a rock is lifted in the Terri Schiavo tragedy, another conflict of interest comes slithering out. The conflict-of-interest potential in the right-to-die connections among current figures involved in the case are only outdone by the Woodside Hospice board of […]

George Felos held yet another press conference this morning. I pray it was his last, but fear that won’t be the case. George Felos had the gall to stand before the cameras and bash Father Frank Pavone. Felos’ statements were repugnant, repulsive, outrageously offensive, shockingly callous, and morally indefensible. Time — and my blood pressure […]

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back […]

Once more, the efforts of Terri Schiavo’s parents to save her life have been rebuffed by the federal courts. Today, Justice Stanley F. Birch, Jr. of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals wrote: Any further action by our court or the district court would be improper. While the members of her family and members of […]

Ronald Cranford, M.D. Remember the name if you haven’t previously heard it. My money says you’ll hear it again. If you have heard of him, it’s probably because you’ve either seen him on television pontificating in recent days about Terri Schiavo’s diagnosis and prognosis, or you’ve read about him in one of the thousands of […]

Dr. Jay Wolfson, who served for a brief time in late 2003 as Terris Schiavo’s court-appointed legal guardian, was interviewed this week on MSNBC. Dr. Wolfson believes that the evidence adduced at trial about Terri’s wishes was sufficient to support pulling her feeding tube. Dr. Wolfson got it almost right. But not quite. And, unfortunately, […]

I continue to marvel, as I watch the ongoing coverage of the Terri Schiavo debacle and listen to all the folks weighing in with their opinions, at the number of times I hear Michael Schiavo referred to not just as Terri’s “husband,” but as her “devoted,” “loving,” “committed,” and even “faithful” husband. It boggles my […]

It’s very clear that, even though Terri’s family continues to hope against hope for a miracle, the courts and Jeb Bush are not going to intervene to save Terri’s life. Given that sad fact, it is time to pray for one thing: That death comes soon for Terri and her suffering, as well as that […]

The text of Judge Whittemore’s second denial of Bob and Mary Schindler’s request to have their daughter, Terri Schiavo’s, feeding tube reinserted can be read here. (I would post it in its entirety, but it is 11 pages long.) Note the last paragraph of the ruling: Finally, the court would be remiss if it did […]
