Anniversary of Court-Ordered Offering to Satan: Terri Schindler Schiavo’s Murder

image

[This is US Rep. Bill Pascrell (D) of New Jersey’s 8th Congressional District. Raised in the holy Catholic Faith, Pascrell apostatized years ago, selling out the most vulnerable among us for petty political gain. He came to my attention in 2005, when on national television he tried sabotaging efforts to save Terri Schindler Schiavo’s life.

Terri’s parents and siblings asked for just one thing: to take custody of her. They simply wanted her to live. But this was too much for the abortion lobby, including the National Organization for Women; they wanted her dead. So they let slip their dogs of war. Among them was Bill Pascrell, who voted to keep Congress from intervening on behalf of Terri’s family.

In the wake of this atrocity, I vowed to remind the world that Terri was put to death by the American judicial system at the behest of killers who’ll stop at nothing to get their way.]


The anniversary of the court-ordered killing of an innocent woman is again upon us. Shortly before Terri Schindler Schiavo starved to death on March 31, 2005, opinion polls across the country asked whether her feeding tube should be reinserted; a majority responded no. In the final analysis, Terri’s murder was a result of the woeful indifference toward life reflected in such polls.

Make no mistake: The battle to save Terri was a simple matter of right versus wrong. It takes no legal scholar to see this, but a vigorous effort was made to make it seem so. Why? Because our culture of death cannot exist without rhetoric to cloud straightforward issues. Terri Schindler Schiavo was not dying or brain-dead and she wasn’t on any kind of life support. Her nutritional needs were being met with the assistance of caregivers, no differently than infants are nursed or toddlers and elderly might be spoon-fed. Despite this, judges, politicians and pundits bent over backward to paint her unworthy of life. Beholden to the all-powerful abortion lobby, they rushed to the cause of an adulterous, impatient husband who wanted her dead and forgotten.

This explains why left-wing members of Congress like New Jersey’s Bill Pascrell suddenly and awkwardly took up the conservative cause of states’ rights, declaring Florida’s lethal court rulings against Terri inviolable. It explains why Pinellas County judge George Greer concluded that Terri would have preferred death based merely on her coming of age when use of life support equipment was questioned in the popular press. And it explains why Mary and Bob Schindler’s petition for custody of their daughter was denied, leaving Terri’s fate in the hands of their resentful and vindictive son-in-law.

Similar contortions of law and logic were used in 1973 to construe a right to kill children in the Constitution. Indeed, the battle for Terri’s life proved especially nerve-racking for abortion providers, their champions in the media and minions in government. Despite the unqualified success of having created a massive legal altar upon which tens of millions of unborn had been slaughtered, these engineers of industrialized death are well aware of its shaky foundation. So they trivialized and derided a voiceless woman lying in a Florida nursing home. After all, any legislative action or judicial decision to reinsert her feeding tube might have been viewed as validating her life. And that might have led to validating life in a broader context.

The rebuff given Terri and her family is a rebuff to each and every one of us. But it should come as no surprise. Since Roe v. Wade, our society has been disintegrating into a loose association self-centered individuals who tolerate others only to the extent they prove useful.

Having embraced death on demand— color it reproductive freedom, a right to die or fetal stem cell therapy— most Americans now regard life as just another commodity, something to be traded, used and discarded.
