Judge Greer has:
- Denied DCF standing in the case
- Refused new medical tests
- Disallowed any attempt to feed by mouth
I'm not sure what to do at this point. Bishop Sgreccia of the Vatican has said:
"The gastric feeding tube cannot be regarded as an 'extraordinary' or as a therapeutic 'means.' It is an integral part of the modality in which Schiavo can be fed and hydrated."
"To prevent someone access to food and water, represents a way of killing that person,"
That's pretty straightforward, without any weasel room. I appreciate that the Pontifical Academy for Life has spoken out, but I fear it may be too little, too late.
At this point, we may be out of options except prayer.
