One site, BlogsforTerri.com, offered directions to a candlelight vigil this evening in Dallas and called on supporters to protest at the office of a Florida prosecutor, hoping he will charge a state judge with "aiding and abetting" Ms Schiavo's husband - who favours removing her feeding tube - in "domestic violence"

LA Times

ProLifeBlogs.com created a site that steers people to more than 300 blogs that support its stance in favor of reinserting Schiavo's feeding tube. Hundreds of bloggers have linked to BlogsforTerri.com, a site with news updates on the case and reader commentary.

USA Today -

The case has lit up the Internet. BlogsforTerri.com, for example, is e-mailing media outlets urging them to probe more deeply, while blogs such as Dailykos.com have been critical of lawmakers who have intervened.

If Terri could be charged with contempt of court for failure to appear on the congressional subpoena, could they then take her into custody? As a person charged with an offense, she would have more rights than she does now. I know it's absurd, but perhaps it could protect her.

While this is no time for vanity, we do need to make as big a noise as possible in order to make more people aware of the extreme injustice being done to Terri and her family. The culture of death has a strangle hold on our society and we must do everything we can change their hearts. Only then can good laws be enacted and successful.

Wow! Two death sentence appeals denied in just two days. Would the courts be this efficient with convicted criminals?
NYT tells us that starvation can lead to a gentle death. Imagine how humane and money saving it would be to execute death row inmates by starvation.

If Terri dies, I hope that Michael is indited for premeditated murder and George Felos for accessory to murder.

What do the court see when they have been deciding about the case? It sounds like there have been court records sealed and that there is a fight to have court documents unsealed! If they are sealed does that mean than these supposed 19 judges have only seen selected court documents? You can't base a decision on partial information!

It is my understanding that the only reason Michael can pull the plug on Terri is because she has been declared PVS. Yet that very diagnosis is in question why won’t anyone order extensive diagnostic testing by several top neurologists and the bone scan from before, examined to be absolutely positive that they are making the right decision. Doctor after doctor has said that in order to be sure about her diagnosis these things are necessary.

The Neurologist for Michael said on CNN that Terri's EEG was flat. Medically and scientifically impossible! Even Dr. Sanjay Gupta mentioned it was a strange thing to say as that would indicate that Terri is brain dead and that quite obviously is not the case. How can the Neurologist hired by Michael be considered credible?

Michael used Terri's responsiveness to his benefit in the malpractice case and now says she is not responsive so he can kill her!

Michael repeatedly says Terri's state can be proven just by meeting her and yet he won't let anyone see her! Terri's parents want to have Terri seen to prove she is not in the state Michael says she is in. Does this not strike people as a bit counter productive? Michael’s lawyer fought against Terri’s video being shown in court. Why? They have done nothing but try to keep Terri’s condition hidden and it has been allowed. If Terri is truly unresponsive like they say, what are they so afraid of?

Please investigate the inconsistencies! Reasonable doubt is enough to keep a serial killer alive it should be enough to keep an innocent woman alive!

How would someone find some of the old reports about Terri's incident?

I was reading someone saying that Michael called Robert and then called 911. They said Robert in turn called Bobby as he lived in the same apartment building.

Bobby was reported as saying that when he got to Terri that she was on her face with her hands underneath her and her hands by he throat. Michael was reported as saying he had turned Terri over and in another instance said he was holding Terri in his arms?

Is there somewhere I could read those kinds of reports?

IMDLL, I've heard that too, but I don't know where those affidavits or reports are... I'm sorry. :-(

I just do not see how there can be so many things in question about this case, that should prevent anything from being done in the first place until some investigating is done, it seems like everything is being done to help the so called husband (which I personally think he has NO right calling himself considering his "common law" family)get any kind of evidence that could prove him wrong covered up. There are tests that could be done to prove him wrong or right if that should be the case, and I dont see why he is so opposed to letting that happen if he has nothing to hide. He has apparently gotten on with his life, which was his choice, but I think he should let her parents take over the decisions as far as Terri is concerned, he has no right over that anymore. They gave her life, and I think they should have the say over what happens to her now, before a cheating, lying, and questionable man. He is talking out of both sides of his mouth, using her state to whichever suits his needs best at the time. Like Sirena said previously: If Teris is truely as unresponsive as they say, what are they so afraid of????? She is breathing on her own: so to do what they are doing is Murder plain and simple.

They have said on CNN that there is someone trying to have some sealed court records of possible abuse un-sealed. Maybe someone is finally figuring out that everything doesn't add up in this case.

I am not familiar enough with the law. Is part of the problem in the whole appeal thing that they are only looking at legal issues and not any past decsions and whether they were unbiased or warranted?

I am still at at loss as to why when so many of Terri's family and friends have called Michael's character into question and with his behavior in this matter (denying medical treatment, therapy etc.)being less than stellar that he has not been the center of a major investigation? Add to that the bone scan and good grief! All it took in the Laci Peterson case was for one person to step up and Scott's world unraveled.
