Minus one day, and counting

On Monday at 2:30 p.m. EST, Terri Schiavo's parents will go before the judge to plead for an extension of the stay on removal of Terri's feeding tube while other legal questions are being explored. This young woman, loved by many, who laughs at jokes and eagerly waits for visits from her mother may die because her adulterous husband will not allow anyone to give her nourishment.

I found affidavits such as this one from an attendant at the nursing home to be eye-opening. If you read nothing else, read that. Further information, affidavits and numerous legal documents in the case are posted here. Fr. Rob Johansen's excellent blog Thrown Back has faithfully followed the case for a long time.

I have watched this situation from afar for a long time, but I'm a johnny-come-lately to taking this on with faithful prayer and effort. I'm there now, though.
