BlogsforTerri Ad Campaign For Terri Begins Sunday

Topics: News

Subsequent to the events described in our previous post, the BlogsforTerri advertisement to address and dispel misconceptions about Terri in the media, advise the public of where they could go on the Internet to find a plethora of information on the truth about Terri, and what action that they should take to save her, was placed in the Tampa Tribune to run this Sunday in the Metro section - believed to be one of the most read sections of the Sunday edition of the Tribune.

We are grateful to the Tampa Tribune for immediately accepting the ad as was presented to them, and also their special efforts to get it placed in this Sunday's edition with only one hour notice.

Further, the Tampa Tribune charged BlogsforTerri approximately $7,500 which means that there could be enough funds left over to run the ad in the St. Petersburg Times, as they have now agreed to do, sometime during the next couple of weeks, particularly if BlogsforTerri partners with another "save Terri" group that would be willing to match us.

Will further donations still be accepted for this by the Franciscan Brothers of Peace (through mail or PayPal)?

Judge Greer's ruling is to remove nourishment from Terri...by removing the tube and by ordering "I don't want anyone feeding that girl!" this means she will not be fed by spoon either, even if she asks for food. The image of a battered severely impaired woman begging to be fed and being denied is a bit more than my sensibilities can bear. The barbaric cruelty is overwhelming. Terri has been condemned to a viciously cruel death by a court room she was never in and a judge who never met her....all because she can not lift her own spoon...Does this sound like America or Nazi Germany ?

Many people adjust to their disability and dependency and find meaning and value in new activities and ways.

The rumor was true; the St. Petersburg Times today published a biased editorial in which the courts were extolled as the proper venue for the Schindlers and Schiavo to hash it out. Governor Bush, DCF, Randall Terry, and all of us who lobby in favor of Terri only turn this into "an unseemly public circus".

How nice that the Times rescinded their demands to censor the advert BlogsforTerri was to publish. But is it wise to support in any way a newspaper and their editors with such an obvious bias?

Boycott Florida - Don't buy their products, don't vacation there, discontinue getting publications from there unless they are pro-Terri.

I just can't believe that our country is allowing such an atrocity to go on. I am handicapped and last year had 3 respiratory arrests and just missed needing a g-tube. I was unable to talk and barely able to move myself, but my family was there for me, despite my husband. AFTER my crisis, I made sure I had a medical directive giving my family the right to do what they felt was necessary above my husband's wishes just in case another crisis happened and my husband wasn't so willing to allow my family to help. I had to fill out a form and have it notorized. There IS NO SUCH FORM for Terri. It is all hearsay by witnesses who obviously have an interest in seeing Terri die. I can't believe that the press, the Florida judicial system, and a number of democrats are so anxious to see Terri die that they will ignore these facts. On two separate occasions Michael Schiavo was heard to say that he didn't know what Terri wanted but this is what he wanted. No duh, he wants the money AND his mistress, and he doesn't want Terri to recover to contradict what he has done.

If they succeed in killing Terri, let's not allow her death be a waste. How can a man who is so obviously breaking his marriage vows, claim to have the right to make decisions based on the very marriage contract he is breaking? Let's make sure this can never happen to anyone again.

How ironic that michael schiavo is willing to let the president and his brother visit terri now that she is off nourishment and probably less responsive. We DID NOT see him inviting people in to see her interacting with her parents or others who have said that she can communicate however little with people.
I hope that everytime Michael drinks or puts food into his mouth he is haunted by the treatment he is allowing his wife to go through. MICHAEL YOU ARE A MURDERER
