Help Terri

You've been following the news of the proposed death by starvation of Terri Schindler-Schiavo. It's a frightening thought that this evil can be done by day, in full view of the courts and the press and the nursing home she lives in.

The fight led by her parents and a lot of lawyers who are working beyond what they're being paid needs MONEY, folks. Did you file your tax return yet? Will there be a refund? Consider, please, if you don't mind me asking, a tithe of 10% of your refund, which is "new money" and outside your normal income stream, to Terri's Fight.

In a sickening twist of charitable commercials, instead of a third-world orphan, your money will help to feed an American woman who smiles, laughs, closes her eyes when someone in the room prays, who is clearly alive and part of her family.

I haven't been able to blog about this issue because it seems so senseless. I start to write, and then I get tangled up.

Terri's husband Michael, who routinely intimidated the nursing home staff into witholding physician-ordered care and who would ask angrily "When is the bitch going to die?" is the one with the legal right to kill her. A first-grader would have the sense to see that responsibility for Terri's care should be moved as far from him as possible, and he should be prevented from profiting in any way by her eventual death. I am simply shocked.
