Folks, as of this writing, the web site counter statistics at Terri’s Fight, shows 1,649,496, and increasing exponentially every minute. That says a lot about how many people care about Terri Schiavo.
But that’s not of any comfort to Terri’s family. Imagine, folks. Imagine being Terri’s mom, having given birth to a beautiful daughter and – suddenly – every single second of the clock, as it counts down to Friday, March 18, 2005 at 1:00pm, churns Terri’s mom’s stomach into a tighter and tighter knot of anxiety, fear, despondency, utter disbelief, chaotic tumultuous, torturous thoughts that Terri only has less than four days to live.
Less than four days. Imagine YOUR beloved child. Imagine the Christmases past. The Birthday parties. Her first words. Watching her take her first stumbling steps. Watching her as she pulls herself up for the first time in her painted crib. Imagine YOUR daughter being slaughtered by right-to-death activists. For money.
Imagine watching your daughter starve to death by a court-sanctioned order to remove a feeding tube, simply because Terri Schiavo can not swallow on her own.
Folks, being unable to swallow is not a crime. It should not be punishable by death. Yet death is what Judge Greer, George Felos and Michael Schiavo, Terri’s adulterous husband, have cast down upon Terri Schiavo.
It seems logical that Michael Schiavo, who is married to Terri, a disabled woman, should lose legal guardianship if he marries another woman (common law or otherwise). To allow this guardianship to continue is tantamount to endorsing polygamy. Yet, Michael Schiavo is living with another woman AND has two children with her and noone questions this living arrangement nor Michael Schiavo’s ulterior motives.
This coming Friday will coincide with the 15th year anniversary of Michael Shiavo’s *alleged* attempt to murder his wife, which is how Terri ended up in the poor condition she is in today. Terri collapsed in her home under questionable circumstances in Feb, 1990. Yet Michael is free, breathing, and having sex with his live-in girlfriend.
Folks, read the words that Judge Greer dictated three weeks ago:
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that absent a stay from the appellate courts, the guardian, MICHAEL SCHIAVO, shall cure the removal of nutrition and hydration from the ward, THERESA SCHIAVO, at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, March 18, 2005.

She only has less than four days to live.
Folks, I watched my father die from Alzheimers. He could no longer swallow. He couldn’t be fed ice cubes, because he would choke on the melted ice in his mouth. It took him three days to die of dehydration and he was 80.
Picture Terri dying.
Picture YOUR child. Innocent. Dying. Murdered by a court-sanctioned decree and a hateful husband.
