So Mr Travis, when can we expect the concert commemorating the anniversary of Mr Schindler's ordering the suffocation death of his mother despite her physicians explaining that she could, with treatment, survive? Oh, that "order" was somehow different? How so Mr Travis? Please explain to me why it was okay for Mr Schindler to speak on behalf of his mother as HCS to what she, herself, might have wanted for medical treatment, but not for the court to speak on behalf of Mrs Schiavo as HCS as to what she would have wanted in terms of medical treatment? Please explain to me why one is "prodeath" and the other isn't? Maybe it's me but doesn't it sound maybe the tiniest bit hypocritical? Just a little? Perhaps a lot?

I think it's a good thing that this tragic event is being remembered. Atrocities should never be forgotten.

Again, the Schindlers were clear they never would have removed her feeding tube, even if they knew beyond a doubt it were her wish not to continue using the tube.

That's understandable, but not a legally defensible position - in the U.S. no competent adult is under any obligation to continue medical treatment.

Which is why I wanted to know when Mr Travis was giving a concert so the atrocity of Mr Schindler committing matracide would never be forgotten. It's only fair. Yes?

I believe they stated they wanted her kept alive for THEIR joy without regard for what she would consider "joyous":-) Sad that they didn't think Mr Schindler's mother would have brought them "joy". Well documented that Mrs Schiavo's brother didn't visit her but once a year while she was alive. Same for her sister. Parents once a month or so for about 20 minutes (but in fairness, her mother did call the facility she was in at least every few days). Why didn't all that "joy" start until after Mr Schiavo refused to share his lack of consortium awarded in the med mal?

I have always agreed with you on the question of Mr. Schindler's mother. Some of the other prolife posters have glossed over that issue, but I have not. This does not alter the fact that commemoration of Terri Schiavo, and remembering her death by dehydration deliberately inflicted on her, is a good thing.

Be better if both were commemorated but, then again, the schindler's wouldn't want to be exposed for the hypocrits they are so, in my mind, the concert is hypocritical. Court spoke for Mrs Schiavo who said if she had to be KEPT alive to live she didn't want it. Lots of people feel that way.

Whole point of the debate. Why was it so important to KEEP one family member alive but not another. The answer is money. Mrs Schiavo simply wasn't that important to her blood family until they could make a buck off her. Hellova reason to keep someone alive against their will.

With $92.00 a ticket I'm sure there is enough money to go around.

I agree!

Donations are higher whenever the "IT" story is hot. Terri has been dead 5 years,people move on.

Maybe it is time for the Schindler's to stop selling off Terri piece by piece.
