Obama Crushes 'Audacity of Hope' for Disabled Americans and Their Families
Contact: Suzanne Vitadamo, Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, 727-490-7603, infor@terrisfight.org


ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, Feb. 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- In a presidential debate last night, Sen. Barack Obama, (D-Ill), said, for the second time this year, that he regretted supporting federal legislation aimed at saving the life of Terri Schiavo. He even suggested the legal efforts to stop Terri's death by dehydration and starvation constituted a "costly" action.
"We welcome the opportunity that Senator Obama has given us to once again strive for clarity regarding the death of our beloved Terri," her father Robert Schindler said. "However, we are very saddened by his remarks. Everyone with a disability, or who knows someone with a disability, should be outraged that a potential US president would so callously reject his own action taken in favor of life over death."

Terri's Foundation wishes to remind all Americans that the Senate gave unanimous consent to the effort to save Terri's life and that the vote was strongly bipartisan in the House. "As a country, we should all be distressed that doing the right thing suddenly becomes a 'mistake' when one poll later showed it to be unpopular," Schindler said. "That isn't leadership; it's pandering to popular prejudices."
"Is it so incredulous that a family had the 'audacity of hope' to believe its government would care about one profoundly disabled woman?" Schindler asked. "It is a shame that Senator Obama, who claims to embody 'hope,' is crushing it for the families of people with profound disabilities."
Terri was neither terminally ill, nor comatose. She was not on life support and only needed food and water to live. Persons with disabilities, no matter how serious, are persons with the Constitutional right to life.
"Highly visible public figures, especially those who may one day speak on behalf of all citizens, should not imply that some citizens are less worthy than others," added Schindler. "As President, would Barack Obama stand for all of us or just some of us?"

LISTEN TO: Dr. Hammesfahrs: http://www.apfn.org/audio/DrHammesfahr2.mp3
Dr. Hammesfahr revealed that not only has Terri NEVER had a heart attack as
widely reported in the major media, she also NEVER even had a cardiac arrest
(her heart never stopped)! [she had arhythmias of the heart but not a
"stopped heart."]
He explained that Terri's injuries were multiple and
showed injury TO her. He stated that Terri had marked injury to her neck
which still exists today, and that he has only seen a similar injury, with
spinal cord involvement as well as brain injury, in one case where a patient
had been strangled. He stated that Terri had an L-1 injury to her spine,
which he stated is common among persons being thrown against a table, for
example. Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that Terri could talk and was improving in
the very first year when she was getting some rehabilitation (BEFORE Michael
got the money), and that the medical records confirm, that after Michael got
the money, rehabilitation was completely stopped!

For years the Schindlers have repeatedly suggested

What is Michael Schiavo Afraid of?
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/Terri_Michael.htm 
Theresa Marie Schiavo's Bone Scan
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/Terri_bonescan.htm

The revered Roman Catholic priest who was barred from visiting Terri Schindler-Schiavo when she was hospitalized due to a medical crisis in mid-August is holding an all-night prayer vigil on behalf of the 39-year-old brain-disabled woman, whose death by court-ordered starvation is scheduled to begin in six days. http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=35006 

Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was removed Wednesday October 15, 2003 after a decade-long legal fight between her parents and her husband, who says she would rather die than be kept alive artificially. Doctors say she will die within two weeks without the tube.

Meanwhile, Schiavo's husband, Michael, has gotten death threats in recent days and temporarily moved from his Clearwater home, his attorney said Thursday.


"In Florida, in order to dehydrate somebody there has to be a finding that the patient is unconscious, which is what Judge Greer has done in the Schiavo case.

"But if anybody has seen a video of Schiavo available on Terrisfight.com [now www.Terrisfight.org ], the video shows they will see that she is no way unconscious. An unconscious person is utterly unreactive – in fact that’s how it’s basically defined in Florida law."

On one video a doctor is shown asking Terri, who has her eyes closed, "Please open your eyes, Terri" – and her eyes flutter and open.

In another video her mother comes over to her bed, leans down and says, "Hi, sweetie, how are you?" and Terri looks over, sees her mom and gets a huge smile on her face.

Terri breathes on her on and maintains her own blood pressure, she requires a simple tube into her abdomen to her stomach for nourishment and hydration.



The Schindlers, Terri's parents,  have been locked in a decade-long legal struggle with their son-in-law, Michael Schiavo, over the care and custody of their daughter, who suffered massive brain damage when she collapsed at her home 13 years ago under unexplained circumstances. Terri's brain was deprived of oxygen for about five minutes.

Terri was a Battered Wife?
One year after Terri's collapse, a bone scan revealed that she had compression fractures and apparent traumatic injuries.
Michael wants Terri's body cremated following her death. Attorneys with the Thomas More Legal Center, a pro-life law firm, are worried that doing so would destroy any evidence investigators could use to ascertain whether Terri was a victim of domestic abuse. SEE BONE SCAN http://www.apfn.org/apfn/bone.pdf

A 1991 medical report about Terri’s condition was not released at the insistence of Mr. Schiavo. Only recently has the information contained in that transcript been available. The unnamed physician who reviewed that nuclear imaging bone scan found evidence of ‘multiple fractures.’ ‘Somebody worked her over real good.’

They want the suspected violence and subsequent lack of treatment for her breaks to be investigated before Judge Greer rules on whether her feeding tube is removed. http://www.ragged-edge-mag.com/1102/1102ft1.html
Allegations prompt call for criminal probe into suspected abuse
One particular allegation that was "very disturbing" to Hennessy and prompted the request for a criminal investigation was lodged by Carla Sauer Iyer, a registered nurse who cared for Terri from about April of 1995 until August of 1996.

Iyer alleged that Terri's blood sugar levels were normally "very stable due to the uniformity of her diet." While she suspects Schiavo of injecting Terri with regular insulin to drive her into hypoglycemic shock, she acknowledged that she has no proof.

"She noted at least five times when Michael Schiavo would come to visit Terri, close the door to her room and then emerge sometime later and leave," Hennessy related. "On those occasions, Iyer had tested Terri's blood sugar, and the level was so low it wasn't even registering, she would administer dextrose to get Terri...out of danger."

Iyer's affidavit detailed the alleged incidents.

Terri received a $700,000 malpractice award in the early 1990s (doctors hadn't done enough to diagnose the potassium deficiency that led to her heart attack); husband Michael has been paying his legal fees out of it in his fight to end her life. If she dies, as her husband (he has never filed for divorce) he will receive whatever funds are left.

"Michael [Schiavo] would say, 'When is she going to die? Has she died yet?' and 'When is that bitch going to die?'" Iyer charged. "Other statements which I recall him making include, 'Can't anything be done to accelerate her death, won't she ever die?' When she wouldn't die, Michael [Schiavo] would be furious."

"Michael would be visibly excited, thrilled even, hoping that she would die," Iyer recalled. "He would blurt out, 'I'm going to be rich,' and would talk about all the things he would buy when Terri died, which included a new car, a new boat and going to Europe, among other things."

In early October, 1990, the latest hearing began to determine the 38-year-old woman's fate. Her parents and their doctors say Terri is responsive and deserves to live. Her husband, who has just had a daughter by the woman to which he is now engaged, and a second one on the way -- but remains married to Terri and in control of her medical fund and her fate, wants Terri to die. http://www.ragged-edge-mag.com/1102/1102ft1.html 

Had Terri died then, Michael would have inherited all the money. But he denies having a venal motive, claiming that the trust fund money is now exhausted. If true, this is bitterly ironic. For the past three years he has been in litigation, opposed by Terri's parents and her other relatives. Rather than the funds going to pay for medical therapists to help her, as the jury intended, much of it instead paid lawyers that Michael retained to obtain the court order to end her care.

Michael Schiavo has accused his in-laws, Bob and Mary Schindler, of trying to control his wife's assets, and "the Schindlers now suggest their son-in-law tried to strangle their daughter the night she collapsed and that's why he has fought so hard to keep her quiet," the Orlando Sentinel reported. Schiavo's attorney has denounced the accusations as "malicious" and "garbage."

Michael Is a Criminal According to Florida State Law:

This is a case that his insurance co. was named.  It would be good to get
the word out, as I released it to ALL media and they have not said a word. 
I had one media person say she would check the police reports, but have not
heard from her yet.  It was verified as a true case finding by an attorney who looked it
up on "Southern Second", so I know the finding is correct.  Note that the battery
charge is not in question.

Ron Panzer
for Hospice Patients Alliance

Jana Carpenter, nurse who has reviewed Terri's charts states:

"
TERRI IS NO WAY VEGETATIVE. She sits up in a chair. There is NO QUESTION she is in such a state. It really does
rip your heart out to see this happening.

"There's a priest in there right now and he is SCARED to go in and give her Holy Communion. The husband's lawyers are THREATENING him if he even touches her.
Michael the husband threatened her father for even trying to put a PILLOW behind Terri's head.

"She has not had a drop of water. A DROP. No person is allowed to even touch Terri by her ex-husband, now common-law married to his mistress, Michael Schiavo.

"Michael Schiavo prevented even normal human care. He refused to let Terri's TEETH BE CLEANED for TEN YEARS."

"Dehydration is one of the most painful deaths imaginable. Her lips crack, nose bleeds, stomach and interior organs malfunction, dry heaves, seizures, imminence of her death due to collapsed lung a few weeks ago is likely. If the governor doesn't act very soon, Terri will die."
"Disability group rally at 1:00 pm in Washington DC." David, guardianship spokesperson:

"We have received about 85,000 emails forwarded to Governor Bush. Fifty people are around the hospice on average. Elderly lady slept on the ground last night.
Michael, Terri's future brother in law, NOT her ex-husband:

"Just went in with priest to give Terri's last rites. Police threatened
priest with arrest if priest tries to give Terri last rites. Police
statement: 'You will not make it to her, sir, if you try, I will restrain
and arrest you.' "


After Terri collapsed from unknown causes in 1990, she became profoundly cognitively disabled.
 Michael filed a medical-malpractice lawsuit, during which he said he would care for her for the rest of her life, which, assuming proper care, would be a normal lifespan. He also presented at trial a medical-rehabilitation expert who had developed a plan to provide support for Terri to maximize her ability to respond to her environment.
 A jury awarded $1.3 million in the malpractice case, of which $750,000 was put in trust to pay for the kind of care that Michael promised to provide Terri.
 Michael never kept his promise.

 
Within months of the money being deposited in the bank, Michael ordered a do-not-resuscitate order placed on Terri's chart. He has also repeatedly denied her other forms of medical care, such as treatment for infections.
 Once the money was in the bank, according to affidavits filed by nurses under penalty of perjury, Michael ordered that Terri be denied stimulation.
 In the mid 1990s, according to another nurse's affidavit filed under penalty of perjury, Michael was overheard saying things such as, "When is she going to die," "Has she died yet?" and "When is that bitch going to die?" (This affidavit was only recently filed. Michael has not yet filed a response.)
 Michael dated after the malpractice trial; he is now engaged to be married
. He lives with his fiancé, with whom he has one child and another on the way. He reportedly plans to marry his fiancé as soon as his wife's death is induced.
 Money that was intended to pay for Terri's treatment and rehabilitation has instead gone to lawyers Michael retained to obtain a court order to bring about her death.
 If Terri dies, Michael will inherit what is left of the $750,000 (if any remains) and all other property they owned.
 Michael moved Terri from a nursing home to a hospice three years ago even though Terri is not terminally ill. A hospice specializes in dying patients and is not as equipped to provide patients like Terri with proper care.


Terri Schiavo Overview and Update

Terri Schiavo was sentenced to death as a result of her husband petitioning the court to end her life. After a January 2000 bench trial, Judge George Greer (Florida 6th District Circuit Court) issued an order to withdraw Terri’s feeding, thereby causing Terri to die of starvation.
In April 2001, after all appeals failed, Terri’s food and water was withheld for 60 hours. Miraculously, new evidence convinced a different Judge to restore Terri’s feeding, which led to an August 2001 Judge Greer court hearing. Once again Judge Greer issued a new death sentence. That sentence was successfully appealed, which led to an October 2002 bench trial in Judge Greer’s courtroom.
In November 2002, Judge Greer once again issued an order to remove Terri’s food and water. An appeal with the 2nd Distrct Appellate Court failed. Judge Greer was instructed to begin the process of Terri’s execution on July 25, 2003. But, on that final day, the Appellate Court issued a 30 day “stay” of execution.
With a “stay” in place, Judge Greer’s latest death order will be appealed with the Florida Supreme Court. Outraged that the court has ignored pertinent favorable evidence in Terri’s case, her family is requesting Florida Governor Jeb Bush to conduct an investigation into the court’s inappropriate behavior.

UPDATE: Day 7-no food or Water - October 21, 2003, the Florida Legislature and House passed bill 35E - Terri's Bill - into law.

This law allowed Florida's Governor, Jeb Bush, to issue an Executive Order allowing nutrition and hydration to be returned to the disabled Florida woman.

Terri had been without nutrition and hydration for more than 6 days.

She has been transported to Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater. And is to be receiving proper attention immediately. http://www.terrisfight.org


After Gov. Jeb Bush ordered Terri's feeding tube to re-inserted...all hell broke loose. APFN received the following inside information:Tuesday, October 21, 2003 8:22 PM.

                     

-  All bedlam breaking loose in Florida Tuesday, October 21, 2003 8:22 PM
   Michael Schiavo fighting in court to make sure Terri dies at hospital!!
   Threatening all workers who might help Terri.

We need you to call the Governor of Florida IMMEDIATELY to send in State Police into the Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, FLorida where Terri Schiavo has been transported. Michael Schiavo is reported to have actually interfered with anyone providing care for Terri and threatened to sue them.  He is suing the Governor.   Here is the update from
the local area:

"Terri is in Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater (where Michael works as a NURSE!!!).  There is a
hearing going on right now in front of a circuit judge whether the Gov's injunction
stands.  Michael is also suing the Governor!!  So there is going to be a show-down
between the judicial and legislative areas.  .... The local news showed demonstrators
outside the hospital telling the hospital to feed Terri."
"There is a lot of confusion about information right now.  One source says Terri is being
hydrated, one says the doctors aren't giving her IVs because of the court.  One says the
tube was reinserted at 7 PM."  [note from Ron: we do not believe that to be accurate.] 
"Michael is at the hospital threatening anyone who helps her.  I hope someone stays with
her at all times because of Michael perhaps trying to do something to her."

Clearwater, FL October 22, 2003: On Tuesday, October 21, 2003, Terri Schindler-Schiavo
was transported from the Hospice Woodside facility in Pinellas Park, Florida to Morton
Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Florida. At that time, her gastric tube was reinserted and
the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation has learned that she is receiving liquids as of
this writing.
 
Michael Schiavo has ordered that the hospital may not permit any visitors for Terri,
including her parents and siblings. As of 8.00 am (ET) Wednesday morning, Terri's
immediate family is not allowed to visit her and is not permitted to have any information
regarding her physical condition.

October 24, Friday:

Today at 3 PM there was a press conference arranged by Tom Broderson, Pat Anderson's partner.  A number of people spoke and the thrust was - TERRI IS NOT IN A COMA OR PVS.  It was said over and over that the media just isn't getting it.

Two of the MDs from last fall's hearing spoke - Drs. Hammerfahr and Maxfield.  Another MD, Dr. Young, had not officially examined Terri but did observe her for a while.  He is an ER doctor.  All three stated emphatically that Terri wasn't PVS, that she was responsive.  Dr. Maxfield had the large exhibit from the hearing of the CT brain scans to instruct the media in understanding that she had brain damage but her brain wasn't completely gone, as one person has said.

Carla Iyer, the RN whose affadavit is so dramatic, went further in what she said from
what is in the affadavit.  She accused Michael of injecting Terri with insulin.  She and
one of the aides who submitted an affadavit told of many instances of Terri's being
responsive. 

All the members of the family spoke.  A wonderful priest from Kalamazoo, a good friend of Msgr. Malanowski's who couldn't be there because he wasn't feeling well, gave a strong, unapologetic, direct explanation of the teaching of the Church on the immorality of
removing food and fluid, and also spoke on the outrageousness of Terri not being allowed to receive the last rites.  He said all Catholics must speak out about this.

The speech therapist who submitted an affadavit to the court on the expectation that
Terri could be taught to eat, came from out of state for this.

A friend of the family who prays with Terri described how responsive Terri was whenever she visited and - this was so awful - the fear on Terri's face 3 days into her starvation torture.

All these people spoke at length and afterwards spoke to the reporters informally.  I
have seen two TV coverages so far and they aren't good.  One brought Dr. Hammesfahr's therapy into question and another brought up all the conflicting testimony of the other side.

A: Why would they be afraid of Michael? Who is this guy? Why are they so afraid of him? ..He has pictures of everybody naked,...I've decided.

B: Michael's 6'6" - probably 260 pounds, and he, he's very intimidating physically. Uh, I think he bullies girls around as much as he can. I think he intimidates women. See http://www.apfn.org/apfn/Terri_michael.htm

Play a sound clip about the moment of Kate's stroke at age 33.
What if we focused on our abilities rather than disabilities? What would that look like? What might be the results? Maybe it is good that we recognize our limitations – but isn’t it better to recognize that despite “limitations” we are unlimited in what we can do and be?
I was totally paralyzed by a severe double brainstem stroke on June 29, 1995.
