PVS is a clinical diagnosis, takes time to determine. Ronald Cranford, you deserve this liver cancer! I hope you suffer 10 fold!

Why did Jeb Bush ignore that, and refuse to investigate.

Jeb Bush is no hero, either. He acted, he played, but he didn't do his job to save Terri. I hope everybody realizes that and if he runs for any future office in this country, he doesn't earn any votes. That goes for all those lawmakers, Senator King, Everette Rice, Gus Bikalris, and especially Charlie Crist, the attorney general, that did NOTHING, to save Terri.

End of rant. Thanks!

Protesters Outside as Michael Schiavo Tells His Story at “Ethics” Convention

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, September 27, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After speaking at a convention to honour the pro-euthanasia physician who pronounced that Terri Schiavo was in a “persistent vegetative state,” Terri’s estranged husband and killer, Michael Shiavo, drew a standing ovation.

Michael Schiavo, speaking at an “ethics” convention honouring Dr. Ronald Cranford, who is retiring from medicine because of a cancer diagnosis, spoke publicly about the euthanasia of his wife Terri for the first time since her death in March. “Terri didn’t die an awful death,” he claimed. He said that, as Terri died, he “laid a red rose in her hand and said goodbye,” according to a North Country Gazette report.

Pro-life protesters, meanwhile, lined the streets outside the convention centre.

Terri’s brother, Bobby Schindler, contradicted the “peaceful death” claim. “Terri’s life ended after almost two weeks of suffering without receiving any food or water, without receiving ice chips to help ease some of the pain she was experiencing,” he said at a pro-life conference in Phoenix. “Please believe me when I stand here and tell you that as a witness to my sister’s . . . suffering for 13 days by starving and dehydration that [it] is absolutely sickening -- it is wrong and needs to be stopped,” according to a report at prolifeblogs.com.

Brother Paul O’Donnell, a Roman Catholic Franciscan monk and spokesperson for the Schindler family, was also outide the ethics convention and addressed the crowd in Minneapolis. Addressing Dr. Cranford as he walked by, Brother Paul said that he was there “not to celebrate what you do but to speak out against it and I’m not going to go away.” He promised that there would be people “rising up to confront this Culture of Death.”
