Patients rights in America
Let’s focus on Wisconsin here, as a microcosm of the morphing healthcare system that’s redefining health and care and prompting an effort to examine it all carefully.

Deny conscience and redefine ethics
And still call it health care?
The death of Terri Schiavo
It was an eruption in the landscape of America, but far beyond these shores her death six years ago by starvation and dehydration set a new marker for how people treat people who are cognitively impaired, but not dying…
Stop killing the disabled
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. It has happened more than even he may have foreseen.
Pop media soft-peddling death
As usual, it’s being done under the disguise of compassion. This storyline is getting mainstreamed, and even if well-intended, it’s dangerous.
Loved to death
Whether there are more Terri Schiavo’s suffering a torturous death by starvation and dehydration these days, or we’re just hearing more about them these days is uncertain. But the manner of such death should be made clear, and the media are certainly not doing that.
Dysfunctional ‘family guy’
Anyone familiar with the Fox channel’s satiric show ‘Family Guy’ already knows how irreverent its writers are about real family values and things like respect and common decency. There was none of either in a recent episode of that show when they tastelessly and offensively ridiculed Terri Schiavo and her end-of-life ordeal that gripped the nation before she passed away, five years ago.
Need to correct the correction
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
Terri Schiavo’s life
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.
