THE PROMISED POST

It's 3/14/2005 (International Pi Day), and those of us who have joined the fight for Terry Schiavo may be forgiven for feeling a little concerned about the clock ticking. Based on several court decisions handed down in the last few days, it doesn't look good.

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.
