‘Assisted suicide’ is still killing

Marketed under terminology crafted to trigger sympathy and compliance, it still is what it is.

The death of Terri Schiavo

Stop killing the disabled

Sheila Liaugminas | 25 February 2011
I remember receiving a notice in March 2005, a warning written by a man in the Netherlands, that if America allows Terri Schiavo to die in the manner that was unfolding so dramatically at the time, Dutch euthanasia would soon come to this country and there would be no stopping it.

Need to correct the correction

Sheila Liaugminas | 22 January 2010
The family of Terri Schiavo have been at this for 20 years, battling to save her life and now others through her legacy foundation. Her brother Bobby endlessly and exhaustively travels and talks and works to spread awareness of special needs people and the rights of the cognitively impaired.

Terri Schiavo’s life

It began on this day, 46 years ago. Her family, who recently suffered the loss of Terri’s father, is ever-hopeful and grateful for everyone around the world who shares their cause.
