Schindlers Talk about Terri on Hannity and Colmes (Video)Topics: Remembering Terri
Our friends, Bob and Mary Schindler, appeared on Hannity and Colmes to talk about their fight for their daughter, Terri Schiavo, the book they wrote to honor her life (A Life that Matters) and their work on behalf of others.
The Schindlers answered charges, laid by Michael Schiavo, that their resentment of him and action to protect Terri's life was about the money won in a malpractice lawsuit. Bob Schindler agreed that money was the catalyst that began the controversy. "He had committed to spend that money on her rehabilitation. But rather than do that he put her in a nursing home," he said.
"We lived with [Michael]...He said, 'don't forget mom, when we get the money she's going to Shanz Hospital and she's going to get extensive rehab," stated Mary Schindler.
They explained that the money won in the malpractice lawsuit for Terri's rehabilitation was instead spent on attorneys who ultimately succeeded in obtaining a court order to end Terri's life.
However, the Schindlers state that they are pressing forward. Bob Schindler revealed
After Terri passed away, we tried to move on with our lives and dedicated ourselves to the [Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation] and we feel we could do some good with the foundation. And all this other stuff has been stirred up since then and is perpetuating itself. We're not trying to do that.Sean Hannity asked if they feel anger and resentment. "Well there's scars, naturally there's scars," responded Bob Schindler. "But you can't dwell on that, you have to move forward and we're moving forward... we're helping people.
