Oh no... What did that "doctor" do? Terri has a high temperature and the tube removal site may be infected. As Mary Eileen asks, Why did they have to remove the tube when they could have left it in and just stopped feeding her through it??? Te... [Read More]

I find it really sick that you all claim this to be for Terri. Polls show 9 out of 10 people would not want to be kept alive in her condition and six courts have determined that Terri did not want to live in such a state. I cannot think of anything more sick than forcing someone to do something beyond thier sacred wishes. This is NOT Terri's Fight it's you dam fight. Quit hiding behind someone who can no longer speak for herself for your own selfish purposes. This is just sick!

Myth - Michael Schiavo made the decision for Terri that she would want to die and Michael could at any time hand that power over to her parents. This is false! The trial court became the surrogate decision-maker in this case.

Question - Why did Terriā€™s husband get to make the decision about whether she should live or die?

Michael Schiavo did not make the decision to discontinue life-prolonging measures for Terri.

As Terri's husband, Michael has been her guardian and her surrogate decision-maker. By 1998, though -- eight years after the trauma that produced Terri's situation -- Michael and Terri's parents disagreed over the proper course for her.

Rather than make the decision himself, Michael followed a procedure permitted by Florida courts by which a surrogate such as Michael can petition a court, asking the court to act as the ward's surrogate and determine what the ward would decide to do. Michael did this, and based on statements Terri made to him and others, he took the position that Terri would not wish to continue life-prolonging measures. The Schindlers took the position that Terri would continue life-prolonging measures. Under this procedure, the trial court becomes the surrogate decision-maker, and that is what happened in this case.

The trial court in this case held a trial on the dispute. Both sides were given opportunities to present their views and the evidence supporting those views. Afterwords, the trial court determined that, even applying the "clear and convincing evidence" standard -- the highest burden of proof used in civil cases -- the evidence showed that Terri would not wish to continue life-prolonging measures.

Recently, Michael received an offer of $1 million, and perhaps a second offer of $10 million, to walk away from this case and permit Terri's parents to care for her. These offers, assuming there were two, were based on a misunderstanding of the situation here. Michael lacks the power to undo the court order determining Terri's wishes and requiring the removal of her feeding tube. He did not make the decision and cannot unmake it. The court made the decision on Terri's behalf. Nonetheless, Michael apparently rejected each offer.

Terry's husband abandoned her when he commited adultry, he doesnt have her best interest in mind, just his own. Terry isnt brain dead, she is alive and has the right to life just as any dissabled or unborn child that cant speek for themselves. God hasn't chose death for her...just the Florida judge and her so called adulter husband.
Im disgusted at the thought of what poor Terry is going truough, and going through this alone. Her family that obviously is the only one's that care for her is being kept from comforting her.
I pray you let her live until God chooses when its her time.
