Help Save Terry Schiavo

"To save one life is as if you have saved the world" - The Talmud

The blogosphere has been responsible for a righting a number of wrongs this year, but now there's an opportunity to rescue a woman from an estranged husband and a activist judge who would deny her food and water and let here die a horrible death. Terri Schiavo's parents are fighting this with every resource they have but they need help. More details can be found on their website. There are a number of ways we can help. Hyscience and ProLifeBlogs are organizing a blogburst. Some of my favorite blogs like Discarded Lies and LaShawn Barber's Corner are already on board.

There is also a petition that outlines the the disregard of the laws and due process that should be protecting Terri that calls for Judge Greer to be impeached. The most appalling of these is that Terri's husband has been allowed to use a money awarded by a court to pay her medical bill for his own legal expenses in his attempts to end her life.

There are many other opportunities on Terri's site to write letters and send emails to influence those who could prevent her death. I'll keep blogging about this but here's a story to give us hope that some day Terri may be able to communicate again.
