Terri Schiavo Knows What It's Like


Terri Schiavo knows what it's like to be starved to death. But she's not here to tell us.

We were told she went peacefully, painlessly, after all she wasn't conscious of reality right?

Wrong.

She really didn't know what was going on right?

Wrong.

We were lied to. She knew what was happening. She couldn't formulate the words to tell us. She suffered in agony, moaning, crying out the only way she was capable of asking for her life. Asking for someone to save her.

Once again this horrific scene confronts us, only this time it's in Italy.

Listen to the testimonies of Terri's family who authorities restrained from saving their loved one. Hear the truth as they describe the beside scene as they agonized with Terri as she cried out for her life. Find out the truth about personhood, about when life begins, what God says about his beloved creation, about diminished quality of life and what that really means. Find out the truth about what this legal battle is all about. Determine where you will stand. Your life may depend on it.

I remember Terri, her eyes spoke volumes. I work in long-term care and I can tell by looking at her she was alert, aware of her care givers and commuicating with them. Her death was a murder plain and simple with motive being her insurance money. She fought to live, lasting I think 13 days, which is almost unheard of (most people die within a few days after discontinuing hydration). I hope it was painless. What I don't understand is how her family could let her ex-husband just walk away unscathed, I would have at least given him a black eye!

Unfortunately, Mrs. Mills it wasn't painless. Terri Schiavo was in terrible agony. The public was lied to. Michael Schiavo's attorney made a public statement that Terri never looked better when in reality she died a tormenting death.

I am also adding an action alert from the Terri Schindler Schiavo foundation. www.terisfight.org

The quote that I was looking for earlier.

"It always fries me when they call dying by dehydration a "gentle death." It reminds of of when Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, told reporters when she was on the verge of dehydration:

'Frankly when I saw her . . . she looked beautiful...In all the years I've seen Mrs. Schiavo, I've never seen such a look of peace and beauty upon her.'

Then Terri's anguished brother Bobby Schindler told the world blood was pooling in his sister's eyes because her tissues were so dry."
