Businessman Offers $1 Million To Keep Terri Schiavo Alive (Updated)

Topics: News

Update: The businessperson who, through attorney Gloria Allred, has offered Michael Schiavo a million dollars to walk away will be on Hannity & Colmes tonight, Thursday - March 10, 2005 at 9.00pm ET (GMT-5).

Although the actual headline reads "comatose woman," and since Terri Schiavo is not comatose, I've made the appropriate correction in the title of this post, nevertheless, the headline is interesting. But I doubt it will have much of an affect on Michael Schiavo since he can't spend the money in jail should Terri receive therapy and recover sufficiently to tell us how she sustained all of those broken bones. Until and unless he accepts the offer, it's a just another new whisper in the wind.

LOS ANGELES -- Attorney Gloria Allred said she would hold a news conference with one of her clients Thursday afternoon to make an announcement regarding the case of Terri Schiavo, the Florida woman whose feeding tube is scheduled to be removed on March 18.

Allred said the client is a businessman who has deposited $1 million into her law firm's trust account to offer Schiavo's husband, Michael, if he agrees to certain conditions to keep his comatose wife alive after the feeding tube is scheduled to be removed.

Meanwhile, the state of Florida is moving on two fronts to try to block the March 18 removal of the feeding tube keeping brain-damaged Terri Schiavo alive.

How can the ordinary US citizen participate in keeping this woman alive? I would like to do more.

Where is the ACLU on this? Starving someone to death is certainly a violation of their civil rights! But I forget, they have no interest in protecting helpless people - like babies in the womb, the disabled or elderly. There's no political advantage in protecting those who cannot speak for themselves.

The ACLU would probably side with the husband's desires to see his wife's wishes fufilled. She didn't want to be kept alive on machines, her husband is the one with the legal right of way here and he's enforcing her desires. The ACLU would more than likely be torn here and just not intervene. In most states a person with a terminal or perpetually dehibilitating condition has just as much a right ot die as they do to live.
