Thoughts of Peace from the Schindlers at Blogs for Terri. The Schiavos on the other hand plan to deny the Schindlers access to the burial: LEVITTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Terri Schiavo’s ashes will be buried in an undisclosed location near Philadelphia so that her immediate family doesn’t show up and turn the burial into a [...]
So asks Ken Masugi who has been providing excellent historical context on Terri Schiavo’s place in American history at The Remedy. This post takes a look back in time at how the Culture of Death has permeated the Supreme Court and some of its more famous Justices. Consider the line of cases involving not just [...]

Why is it they all have the same opinion and they all start out their spiels by saying “this is a tragic case for everyone involved…” The Doctor is [...]
Tom Maguire has a round up of known liberals speaking out on behalf of Terri. This is great news. Nat Hentoff of the Villiage Voice has been pro-life for years, and his passion hasn’t waned. For all the world to see, a 41-year-old woman, who has committed no crime, will die of dehydration and starvation [...]
This is incredible. Anyone who sees this cannot pretend Terri is in a Persistent Vegetative State (and more evidence that Greer is unfit to hear this case). Obviously, the video was taken before her forced starvation and dehydration. Please spread the word and see other videos at Blogs for Terri.
Kathryn at NRO asks: Is this some kind of cruel joke? On the 13th day of her starvation and dehydration? More here and at Blogs for Terri.
