xx YOUTH ARRESTED FOR PROTESTING
« Reply #31 on: Mar 23rd, 2005, 2:28pm »

ATLANTA -- A 10-year-old boy and his older siblings were among the protesters arrested outside Terri Schiavo's hospice in Florida Wednesday.
Police arrested 10 people who said they were trying to take water to the severely brain-damaged woman. She was taken off a feeding tube Friday.

Chris Keys was among about a dozen people who stood in front of the hospice to bring water to Schiavo. He and three of his children were arrested as his 2-year-old daughter watched from her mother's arms.

His 14-year-old daughter said she was "a little nervous," but that she was sure she was doing God's bidding. She and her 12-year-old brother were cuffed and taken away.

Another protester talked of being held in a Nazi prison camp in the former Yugoslavia. She said she wanted "to at least put some cool water on Terri's lips." She was arrested.

Many of the protesters carried Bibles and cups of water.

Police arrested one woman after she made a long statement in which she suggested that allowing Schiavo to die would bring the country more disasters like the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and natural disasters. Before her arrest, Eva Edl also said, "If we let this happen to her it will be happening to others."
Officers took a cup of water and a book from her.

The second arrest was of a man wearing a baseball cap with a cross on it.

Schiavo's Parents Seek Review By Full Appeals Court

Racing against time, Schiavo's parents are asking for an emergency review of a ruling that her feeding tube not be hooked up again. They want the full federal appeals court in Atlanta to take a look at the decision made by a three-judge panel, which rejected their earlier filing.

In their appeal, Bob and Mary Schindler say their daughter's medical condition is deteriorating rapidly. They ask that the full court order the Florida hospice where Terri Schiavo is staying to immediately transport her to a hospital to sustain her life and to re-establish her nutrition and hydration.

A court clerk in Atlanta said a majority of the 12-member 11th Circuit Court of Appeals would have to agree to hear the case before it would be considered. There's no word on when the court will make that decision.

The ruling by the three-judge panel Wednesday was the latest setback for the parents in their bid to prolong the life of their severely brain-damaged daughter.

In a 2-1 ruling, the panel refused to order Florida doctors to reconnect the feeding tube that had been keeping her alive. A lower court judge issued a similar ruling Tuesday despite extraordinary action by Congress over the weekend to transfer the case to the federal courts. Florida state courts authorized its removal last Friday.

A lawyer for Schiavo's parents said they're not giving up, despite losing another court decision.

Wednesday's ruling expressed great sympathy with the Schindlers. It said, "We all have our own family, our own loved ones and our own children." But it went on to say that the law does not support a single one of their arguments.

The lone dissenter on the panel said there would be no harm in reinserting the tube until the case is fully considered.

Florida state courts have all ruled in favor of Schiavo's husband. He said she would not have wanted to live this way.

"I could not be more disappointed in the decision announced this morning," Gov. Jeb Bush said in a statement Wednesday. "Terri has been without sustenance for almost five days now. Time is of the essence and I hope all who have the ability and duty to act in this case will do so with a sense of urgency."

The governor said he will "call on the Florida Legislature ... to spare Terri's life."
One of those keeping vigil outside the hospice called the ruling "a clear-cut case of judicial tyranny." She said, "All the judges who have ruled against Terri are tyrants." She added that she expected the ruling from the appeals court in Atlanta.

Schiavo did not have a living will. Michael Schiavo has fought for years to have the tube removed because he said she would not want to be kept alive artificially and she has no hope for recovery. Her parents contend she responds to them and her condition could improve.

Terri Schiavo suffered brain damage in 1990 when her heart stopped briefly because of a possible potassium imbalance brought on by an eating disorder. She can breathe on her own, but has relied on the feeding tube to keep her alive.

Court-appointed doctors say she is in a persistent vegetative state with no hope of recovery, while her parents insist she could recover with treatment. Doctors have said Schiavo could survive one to two weeks without the feeding tube.

White House: No Further Legal Options

The White House said it's out of legal options to keep Schiavo alive.

President George W. Bush Wednesday suggested he and Congress had done their best to help the parents of the brain-damaged woman have her feeding tubes re-inserted.

Bush said he believes the action taken with Congress "was the best course of action." He spoke during a news conference with the leaders of Canada and Mexico.

On Monday, Bush quickly signed a law passed by Congress that allowed the woman's parents to take their appeal to federal court.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said, "There really are not other legal options available to us."

Bush described the case as "extraordinary and sad."

Bush again said that in a case such as this, the executive and legislative branches should "err on the side of life" -- and he said they've done so. He said they'll now watch to see what the courts do.

Bush said he hasn't discussed any possible additional steps with his brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

The 11th circut court in Atlanta has rejected the appeal for Terri Shiavo. I am going to post a prayer here on behalf of my family. If you disagree with the following post, please just do not read this thread. I feel it necessary to give this prayer for all those who are wanting this woman to not be denied her life due to the fact she has no living will.


Dear heavenly Father, please hear us tonight. Do not allow this woman to die. I know that your will is what should be done, but please do not allow these people to make a decision that in the end should only be yours. Please do not let her be in pain if it's indeed your will for her to come on home to be with you. I am asking that you please give those who are in charge of this matter to make the right decision. I'm asking you in Jesus name, Amen

Jill,

We discussed Terry Shiavo at work tonight, and not one person wanted her to die by hands of politicans. I am very proud of President Bush to support Terry's parents to keep the tube in place for her feedings.

I often wonder why in this country, that we have people who simply want to pull a tube from a beautiful young woman with a smile that would warm your heart.. cry

I have two issues that may or may not be wrong. First, if this is allowed to happen what is it to say that the same group of individuals will have a say in who lives, older senior citzens, disabled people, what are the limits?

The second question is- did the courts not put that one doctor in prison for helping sick people to commit suicide? It sounds like to me they are doing the very same thing that the doctor did.

I am a big believer in prayer and miracles..and I will pray for Terry to live.

xx White House says no further legal options in Shiav
« Reply #34 on: Mar 24th, 2005, 05:36am »

WASHINGTON, March 23 (Xinhuanet) -- US President George W. Bush said on Wednesday that he had considered all options before the Congress passed an unprecedented legislation and he signed it intolaw over the weekend in a case involving a brain-damaged woman.

"This is an extraordinary and sad case," Bush said at a news conference in Waco, Texas, where he was hosting Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and Mexican President Vicente Fox for talks on trade and border security.

The fate of the woman, Terri Shiavo, 41, now rested with the courts, he suggested.

"I have looked at all options prior to taking the action we took last weekend in concert with Congress ... And now we'll watch the courts make its decisions. But we looked at all options from the executive branch perspective," he said.

Bush rushed back to the White House from his Texas ranch earlier this week to sign the unprecedented emergency legislation that shifted the jurisdiction of Schiavo's case from state courts to federal courts.

"The decision was made to support congressional efforts to givethe parents of Terri Schiavo another opportunity to save their daughter's life," White House spokesman Scott McClellan said Wednesday. "There really are not other legal options available to us," he added.

Schiavo's parents, whose request to reconnect the feeding tube for their daughter was denied by federal judges Tuesday and Wednesday, has asked the full US 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Georgia, to consider their request, and vowed to appeal to the US Supreme Court.

Shiavo's feeding tube was disconnected last Friday on the orders of a state judge, which led to the weekend effort by Congressional Republicans to push through the unprecedented emergency legislation.

Schiavo was incapacitated in 1990 when her heart stopped briefly cutting oxygen to her brain. Her husband has said she did not want to be kept alive artificially and has no hope for recovery, but her parents have contended that Schiavo's condition could improve with treatment.

In Pinellas Park, Florida, several people, including three children, were handcuffed by police on Wednesday for trying to take water into the hospice whre Shiavo was staying. Enditem

Supreme Court Refuses Schiavo Appeal

http://www.nbc30.com/news/4309604/detail.htmlTEXT

UPDATED: 11:13 am EST March 24, 2005

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, rejecting a desperate appeal by her parents to keep their severely brain-damaged daughter alive.

Schiavo is in her sixth day without the feeding tube that had sustained her for years.

The decision, announced in a terse one-page order, marked the end of a dramatic and disheartening four-day dash through the federal court system by Bob and Mary Schindler. Justices did not explain their decision, which was at least the fifth time they have declined to get involved in the Schiavo case.

Outside the hospice where Schiavo has been treated, an activist told protesters about the Supreme Court rejection. He said all legal options "have closed" and Florida's Gov. Jeb Bush "is now the only practical hope."

Bush, who sides with the parents, is seeking custody of Schiavo. A ruling is expected by noon.

Terri Schiavo's brother-in-law had said he hoped the Supreme Court would decline to hear the case.

Legal Documents



Scott Schiavo is the brother of Terri Schiavo's husband, Michael. He said Thursday morning that "This is not about Terri anymore. This is all a political view." He said lawmakers are being "bullied" by "right-for-life people."

The severely brain-damaged woman's father said if she doesn't get water, his daughter won't "be with us much longer."

Schiavo suffered brain damage in 1990 when her heart stopped briefly from a chemical imbalance believed to have been brought on by an eating disorder. Her husband Michael Schiavo said she didn't want to be kept alive by artificial means. Her parents disagreed. They've been fighting in the courts since.

Bob and Mary Schindler said their daughter faces an unjust and imminent death based on a decision by her husband to remove a feeding tube without strong proof of her consent.

They alleged constitutional violations of due process and religious freedom.

The filing also argued that Congress intended for Schiavo's tube to be reinserted, at least temporarily. Lawmakers passed an extraordinary bill last weekend that gave federal courts authority to fully review the case.

The appeal to the high court came the same day that a federal appeals court in Atlanta twice refused to order the reinsertion of Schiavo's feeding tube.

On Wednesday, the Florida Senate voted down a bill that could have kept Schiavo alive. It would have banned patients such as Schiavo from being denied food and water without expressly putting their wishes in writing.

The vote was 21-18.

The rejection of the bill came despite a claim Wednesday from Bush that a prominent neurologist has said Schiavo may not be in a persistent vegetative state after all.

Bush said a review of the brain-damaged woman's medical records indicates she may instead be in a state of minimal consciousness.

Bush said the review has brought up "serious concerns" that warrant action. He called for Schiavo to be stabilized so the team can go through all the facts -- and he said there have been some delays in getting them.

The governor said he's doing everything within his power to make sure Schiavo is granted the same rights many criminals have. He earlier said he was disappointed that federal appeals judges have refused efforts by Schiavo's family to get her feeding tube put back in.


Clergy Demand Bush Intervention

Clergy gathered outside the White House have demanded that President George W. Bush or Jeb Bush send in police to reinsert Schiavo's feeding tube.

The Rev. Paul Schenck, who heads the National Pro-Life Action Center, said the president or his brother should threaten to arrest anyone who tries to stop them from saving Schiavo's life.

He said elected officials' primary responsibility is to protect the lives of innocent citizens. Schenck said that if U.S. courts let the brain-damaged woman die of starvation or dehydration, "then indeed they have made a beautiful martyr."

President Bush suggested Wednesday that Congress and the White House had done all they could to keep the Schiavo alive.

Arrested, Handcuffed Protesters Outside Schiavo's Hospice Include Kids

A 10-year-old boy and his older siblings were among the protesters arrested outside Schiavo's hospice in Florida Wednesday.


Police arrested 10 people who said they were trying to take water to her.

Chris Keys was among about a dozen people who stood in front of the hospice to bring water to Schiavo. He and three of his children were arrested as his 2-year-old daughter watched from her mother's arms.

His 14-year-old daughter said she was "a little nervous," but that she was sure she was doing God's bidding. She and her 12-year-old brother were cuffed and taken away.

Another protester talked of being held in a Nazi prison camp in the former Yugoslavia. She said she wanted "to at least put some cool water on Terri's lips." She was arrested.

Many of the protesters carried Bibles and cups of water.

Before her arrest, Eva Edl also said, "If we let this happen to her it will be happening to others."

Officers took a cup of water and a book from her.

The second arrest was of a man wearing a baseball cap with a cross on it.

I always thought her husband was wanting her gone to spare the cost of a divorce but from what I’ve heard he doesn’t have any of that money left (1000000 law suite) He spent half of it on lawyers to end her life. Plus he refused the million dollars offered to him to transfer rights. He has always insisted it was about Terri. Maybe he is just following her wishes.

My heart goes out to her parents. In the end her sole will be free and no longer trapped in a prison of a body. May God hear all of our prayers and do what's best for Terri.

Terri Shiavo case sparks new bill about living wills
3/25/2005 7:00 AM
By: Brett Tackett & Web Staff


The Terri Shiavo case seems to have America’s full attention.

While many disagree on whether she should live or died, there is another aspect of this, living wills.

One lawmaker is trying to make the process very easy here in North Carolina.

Union-Mecklenburg County Senator Edward Goodall wants to make getting a living will as easy as checking yes.

"We wanted to create a situation in which the wishes of someone that may become ill or terminally ill or in a vegetative state that those wishes would be know," Sen. Edward Goodall (R-Union) explained.

His idea is to include it through the drivers’ license process. It's the same concept as becoming an organ donor.

Every time you go to get or renew your drivers’ license.

Sen. Goodall said, "If we had a box there that checked ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Do you have a living will?"

The most common way to get a living will is through a lawyer.

Right now most people don't have one.

Terry Schiavo didn't have one and that sparked this current debate.

Experts said its proof people should seriously consider this legal step, even if this bill doesn't pass.

"It’s very important so that you don't end up in a Shiavo type situation where you're family members disagree as to what should be done when you're in a vegetative state," Attorney Nathan Hull explained.

As for the bill it's something people seem to like.

Martin Best likes the bill. He said, "If you can make a donor registration here then you should be able to say what you want done if you're incapacitated."

Bob Sexton wants the bill. "Well it would be a lot easier and would be looking into a crystal ball,” he said. “An anticipation in what might happen to some. I think it would be a good idea."

And Sen. Goodall hopes this enthusiasm is shared by enough people to make the bill a reality.

The bill's call Terri Schaivo's law.

Right now, Sen. Goodall's just wants a commission to study his idea. He said the report needs to be ready at least ten days before the 2006 session.

xx Options, Time Running Out Parents of Brain-damaged
« Reply #43 on: Mar 25th, 2005, 09:12am »

A U.S. District Court judge has denied another emergency request from the parents of a brain-damaged Florida woman to reconnect their daughter's feeding tube.

Terri Schiavo's parents can appeal the decision to a higher court, but courts have rejected similar appeals in recent days.

On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to intervene in the Schiavo case, while another judge rejected Florida Governor Jeb Bush's appeal for the state to take the 41-year-old woman into protective custody.

Mrs. Schiavo's feeding tube was removed last Friday, and her health continues to decline as the legal battles rage between her parents and her husband, Michael. He has said his wife told him she would not want to be kept alive artificially.

My prayers are with her and her family. That has got to be the hardest thing for her parents to sit there and watch their daughter starve to death. That is so morally wrong in my eyes what they are doing to this woman and her family.
