A woman who suffered an anoxic insult in 1990, fell into a persistent vegetative state and was kept alive for the next 15 years while her husband fought to have her removed from life support and her parents fought to maintain it
12 /PRNewswire/ -- WCAR 1090 AM will present the 2005 Culture of Life Award to Bob and Mary Schindler, parents of Terri Schiavo, at the 7th Anniversary celebration of Michigan Catholic Radio on October 13 at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center.
Her Catholic parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, had passionately insisted she was not in a vegetative state, that she responded to them, had the potential to improve with treatment and therefore the right to be kept alive.
The high court's decision was the latest in a string of losses in state and federal courts for parents Bob and Mary Schindler, who say their daughter faces an unjust death based on a decision by her husband to halt nourishment without proof of her consent.
Judge James Whittemore yesterday ruled, for a second time, against the parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, who had asked him to grant their emergency request to restore her feeding tube while he considers a lawsuit they filed.
In the emergency filing, Bob and Mary Schindler say their 41-year-old daughter faces an unjust and imminent death based on a decision by her husband to remove a feeding tube without strong proof of her consent.
We are deeply saddened by the death of Terri Schiavo and our thoughts and prayers are with the Schindlers at this time," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, which represented Bob and Mary Schindler - Terri's parents - at the Supreme Court in their efforts to defend the previous Florida legislation that was declared unconstitutional.
