Still Waiting for Justice to be ServedTopics: Remembering Terri
"Throughout the entire struggle to save Terri's life and to this very day, the Schindler family has been a profound example of Christian familial love," stated Stephen G. Peroutka, Esq., chairman of the National Pro-Life Action Center (NPLAC)--the uncompromising voice of pro-life America on Capitol Hill. "After the tragic loss of their daughter, no one would have blamed the Schindler family if they had just wanted to quietly recess into the shadows to mourn. Instead, they continue to be an inspiration to the world by continuing their work on behalf of the disabled and the infirmed, and we thank them for that."
On the eve of the first anniversary of Terri's death by dehydration, the Schindler family is officially launching the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation with the release of their book, "A Life That Matters: The Legacy of Terri Schiavo-A Lesson for Us All" (Warner Books, 2006). "We must never forget the horrible, painful and undignified way in which Terri was put to death by order of an activist Florida judge who had clearly been corrupted by a culture-of- death mindset," observed Paul Chaim Schenck, director of NPLAC. "Every single life does matter. Life is a precious gift with infinite value, and the intrinsic dignity of the human person cannot be negotiated down based on one's physical or mental health, so- called quality of life, or other false pretense perpetuated by death advocates."
As part of the launch, NPLAC has purchased 600 copies of "A Life That Matters," which will be delivered to every member of the United States Senate, the United States House of Representatives and key members of the Bush Administration, including the president and the vice president.
"It is our sincere hope by putting this book into the hands of lawmakers that it will inspire them to take the appropriate actions to ensure that a tragedy, such as Terri Schiavo's, will never happen again," Peroutka said. "This book is a fitting tribute to Terri from those who loved her most. It tells Terri's story so that the world can dispel the myth that this was 'mercy,' and recognize it for what it was-- murder--and recognize what she was--a life that matters."

Editor's Note: A book is often judged by its cover, or so the saying goes. In this day and age, a book is judged by it popularity. A Life that Matters is exceptional, and it is a must read for every supporter of Terri Schiavo as well as critics who have based their opinion on media reports. During this week, when we remember Terri's death one year ago and honor her memory, please join with the NPLAC and support the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation that bears her name and help make a statement by purchasing A Life that Matters.
