Schiavo responded, “Why do I have to divorce Terri? Terri wasn’t like a football – an inanimate object you pass back and forth. She was my wife. You mean because your wife gets sick, do you give her back?”

No, you just kill her.

Yeah, after you cheat on her with another woman while she lies helpless and sick at home. :mad: :mad:

Possibly, Michael Schiavo was doing what he thought his wife wanted.

What’s a Nomex?


#8

I’m sure Terri wanted Micheal to sue for the money to take care of her, then do everything you can to kill her.

Please listen to the Schindler’s side on Catholic Answers Live “The Truth about Terri” broadcast on 3/24/06.

“Terri’s initial collapse was blamed on a potassium imbalance, but an autopsy concluded that was not the case.”

I think that this woman should have been given food and water but this statement in this article is false. I don’t think that the autopsy was able to determine the cause of her collapse. The autopsy occured many years after the collapse.

“A bone scan performed after Terri’s collapse found evidence of possible trauma and friends later revealed the couple go into a heated argument on the day Terri collapsed.”

The article implies that her husband caused the collapse with abuse. I think that her husband was wrong to deprive her of food and water. The writers of this article however seem to draw conclusions about the collapse that I think are uncharitable and speculative.

We do not further the cause to defend life with uncharitable accusations.

Yes, now that you mention it. She had said to him previously something along the lines of "no extraordinary means’. It was her choice. He just followed it through in the absence of her being able to herself.

It was her wish, and right, to be pulled off life support in these circumstances. What gives you or anyone the right to try and stop her from doing this if it was her wishes, for her own body

To quote Wikipedia:

“The courts consistently found that Schiavo was in a PVS and had made credible statements that she would not wish to be kept alive on a machine”

Bullhockey! Terri was NOT in a PVS and I have plenty to prove otherwise. People in a PVS can’t talk and I have a link to medical records that said that she could talk AS REPORTED BY HER HUSBAND!!! People in PVS do not feel pain and every month, Terri would moan, hold her abdomen, and say “pai” when she had painful cramps from her period.

That’s 2 pieces of evidence, I can certainly get more!

Terri wasn’t kept alive on a machine. Get your facts straight.

If Terri said anything to Michael, she obviously meant no LIFE SUPPORT machines, including a ventilator or a heart machine. Michael never claimed she made a statement that if she was disabled to stop feeding her.

BTW, just want to let anybody know that is interested, the Schindlers have their own book that just came out. You can order it on their website. I think I’m going to order it.

And did anybody see the interview Matt Lauer did with Michael last night on Dateline? I only caught the last few minutes of it. (and it was long enough to get my blood boiling…:mad: )

Food and water are not extraordinary means if they continue to serve the purpose they are intened to serve.

I do not know what she said, but no one has a* right *to bind another to take their life.

Two things.

One, I also told my husband, no machines. At the time, it included a feeding tube. After talking to my priest, I had to change my living will. I really do not want a feeding tube. But I will follow the teachings of the Church. So we do not know what she “obviously” meant.

Second, I do not know Mr. Schiavo and I did not know Mrs. Schiavo. Here, everyone may use their first names for space reasons. But it seems that when others talk about this, they use first names. I do not say, “did you hear what George said?” , when I talk about President Bush. I also do not say Terri or Michael, when I talk about this.

The POINT is that nobody, including Michael, ever claimed that Terri said she did not want a feeding tube. To many, many people, a feeding tube is NOT life support. As far as I’m concerned, if a person doesn’t clarify what they mean by life support, we don’t ever deny them a feeding tube. And at the time Terri allegedly made such a statement, Florida law did NOT include a feeding tube as life support.

And yes, we don’t know Terri or Michael, but her parents and siblings did know her enough to vehemently believe that Terri would never have asked to be starved to death. That’s enough for me.

A flame retardant fabric.

My point was that while what you say may have been true, you’re going to get flamed for it.

You’re either being sarcastic, or you’re full of it.

P.S. You didn’t provide two pieces of evidence; you provided two supported assertions.
