Moving Account by Attorney Visiting Terry Schiavo on Friday

March 21, 2005

If you haven’t read this already, please read this extremely moving first-hand account by attorney Barbara Weller of her recent encounter with Terry Schiavo. Here’s the first part of the first paragraph:

When Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube was removed at 1:45 p.m. on March 18, 2005, I was one of the most surprised people on the planet. I had been visiting Terri throughout the morning with her family and her priest. As part of the legal team working throughout the previous days and nights to save Terri from a horrific fate, I was very hopeful. Although the state judicial system had obviously failed Terri by not protecting her life, I knew other forces were still at work.
