Terri's Fight . Keep Terri alive sign now

How would you feel if someone tried to tell you that you couldnt have anything else to eat or drink just so you could die?

This is what is happening to Terri Schindler-Schiavo.

In 1990, Terri Schindler-Schiavo collapsed in the home she shared with her husband, Michael Schiavo. The cause of her collapse is unknown to this day, though one doctor has speculated that a potassium imbalance may have been a factor.
Terri fell into a coma but awakened from her comatose state weeks later. She was left in what medical professionals call a "locked in state" with limited abilities to communicate or move.
During the first months that followed Terri's mysterious collapse, she made progress. Medical practitioners noted her efforts to speak and her responsiveness.
To this day, Terri remains disabled. Though she is responsive to stimuli, interacts with her environment and her loved ones and is capable of communicating in limited ways, she is a disabled and vulnerable adult - requiring protection, therapy and the route to recovery.
Terri receives food and water by way of a gastric feeding tube. There are many amongst us and in all walks of life who receive assisted nutrition and hydration.
Terri has not received meaningful therapy since 1991 on the orders of her husband.
In 1998, Terri's husband petitioned the circuit courts of Pinellas County, Florida to end her life by removing her feeding tube. If her husband is successful, Terri will die of dehydration and starvation over the course of 10 to 14 days. While there are laws in place to protect her from such things, the courts have decided that her wish would be a death from dehydration and starvation as opposed to therapy and rehabilitation.

To this day Her husband is trying everything to keep her family from her, Refusing anything that might make her better. He has also gotten a court order to take out her tube and deprive her of nutrition. Thanks to Florida Legislature and House they passed Terris 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.

You can read Terris whole story here: http://www.terrisfight.org/

The purpose of this petition is to tell the Florida Court system that Terri is a still a person. And removing nutrition from any living person is starving them and if you starve them long enough that is murder by starvation. Terri with therapy might be able to have a little bit of a better life.

WE THE UNDERSIGNED FEEL THAT TERRI SHOULD BE KEPT ALIVE AND HER HUSBAND SHOULD NOT BE KEPT INCHARGE OF HER MEDICAL CARE.

PLEASE KEEP TERRI ALIVE SHE IS STILL A PERSON TOO.
