We are continuing to fight for Terri - and ask you not to give up

Topics: Action Items

Cheryl Ford gives us an update from the Federal Court House:

We just arrived home from the federal court house in Tampa. The hearing began at 6 PM. Several of us were there waiting to be called as witnesses, should our testimony had been needed. We waited for 2.5 hours before we were told the judge was not going to hear witnesses in the case..

[snip]

We now wait until Judge Whittemore again renders his decision. Each minute that passes, Terri lays suffering from the discomfort associated with starvation and dehydration.

My daughter telephoned tonight and asked, "mom, if they took her feeding tube, why won't they at least allow her water or nutrition by mouth?" The only answer i could come up with was......."in Florida they use starvation as a way to kill off the disabled. If they allow her food and water by mouth and if she is capable of taking it, then she won't die. The ultimate goal is not to deprive her of a feeding tube; the ultimate goal is for them to kill her."

We are continuing to fight for Terri........and ask you not to give up. Terri is putting up a good fight. She depends on us to help to save her life.

Please keep her in your prayers.

Thank you,

Cheryl
