“If in a political matter it seems to you that one side of the conflict is right and the other side is wrong, it follows that, if you fail to analyze it out as a logical or an empirical matter in which the other side is mistaken, then you must yourself be a member of one interest group.”- author unknown

“In the end, this case is not about the aspirations that loving parents have for their children. It is about Theresa Schiavo’s right to make her own decision, independent of her husband and independent of her parents. In circumstances such as these, when families cannot agree, the law has opened the doors of the circuit courts to permit trial judges to serve as surrogates or proxies to make decisions about life-prolonging measures.” http://www.2dca.org/opinion/June%2006,%202003/2D02-5394.PDF

Her public service includes membership on the St. Petersburg Health Facilities Authority, the St. Petersburg Bar Foundation Board of Trustees, the Bayfront Health Systems Institutional Review Board and the Florida Children's Campaign Board of Directors.
For Campbell, the Schiavo right-to-life lawsuit has been among her toughest cases. She took the lawsuit in 1998 at the request of malpractice attorney Glenn Woodworth. "I met with the family (Bob and Mary Schindler) and looked at some of the records and thought this was really sad that these poor parents weren't ready to let their daughter go," Campbell says.
"Her parents asked me to please visit Terri once before I decided against accepting the case. I met Terri in a nursing home. I saw how much she responded to her family. Her dad was telling her football jokes and she was grimacing, making pouty faces, over his corny jokes. When her mom talked to her, she made noises toward her mom. She clearly responded to her." Campbell took on the Schindlers' plight to save their daughter whose husband, Michael, was seeking court approval to remove her feeding tube, saying she was in a persistent vegetative state. Campbell, working without compensation, took the case to trial in 2000 in front of Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge George Greer and lost. http://www.stpetebar.com/index_frame.htm? http://www.stpetebar.com/v3_giv_campbell.htm

Having now reviewed the relevant facts, having met and observed Ms. Schiavo in person, and having reflected deeply on the moral and ethical issues, I would like to explain why I have changed my mind in regard to this particular case… In summary, Terri Schiavo demonstrates behaviors in a varity of cognitive domains that call into question the previous neurologic diagnosis of persistent vegetative state. Specifically, she has demonstrated behaviors that are context-specific, sustained, and indicative of cerebral cortical processing that, upon careful neurologic consideration, would not be expected in a persistent vegetative state.” [Affidavit of William P.

Cranford, Ronald E.-M.D., was a featured speaker at the 1992 national conference of the Hemlock Society. The group recently changed its name to End of Life Choices. Board of Directors, Choice in Dying, New York City, 1992-1994 Cranford is a member of the board of directors of the Choice in Dying Society, which promotes doctor-assisted suicide and euthanasia. He was an academic neurologist at the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a clinical neuroethicist, he has been involved in over 10 major right to the cases in the United States He was an expert witness in both Cruzan and Schiavo cases.Dr. Cranford has often been in the forefront of attempts to break new ground related to the overall right-to-die debate. Many of his published articles are advocacy pieces. Some are extremely controversial. For example, in a 1987 article, he described PVS patients as indistinguishable from other forms of animal life. He said such patients lack personhood and, therefore, they no longer should have any constitutional rights. He called for treating PVS patients in the same manner as one would treat the dead and raised the possibility of their being used for medical experiments and organ retrieval.23 Although these radical positions have not become public policy, he told the trial court he still stands by the concepts expressed in the article. App. IX: 1173.
In 1989, he was one of twelve physician-authors who wrote that it was moral for a physician to assist a patient's suicide.24 The article was described as "the strongest public endorsement of doctor-assisted suicide ever published in a major medical journal."25 Dr. Cranford, serving as a spokesperson for the authors, said, "[W]e broke new ground and, at the time we did it, we were very aware that this was very controversial…. We've said that physician assisted suicide may be done in some situations."26
So in 2001, when the call came from James Barnhill, M.D., a Tampa, Florida, neurologist, asking if he might be interested in examining a young woman for a court hearing, Cranford said yes. He knew the issue at stake—who should make the final decision for the patient—was important, but he had no idea at the time that the case of young Terri Schiavo was poised to move from the courtroom to the newsroom to Congress.<snip>
For the latter, most of which are malpractice cases involving a patient with a significant brain injury, he says he “charges quite nicely.” In such cases, Cranford is hired by the defense at the point in a trial at which juries are determining damages. He examines the patient and states whether he or she is in a vegetative or some other state and whether the patient is experiencing pain and suffering. And he makes a prediction about life expectancy. Attorneys might argue that a patient needs to be sustained for 50 years. Cranford counters with medical evidence that shows their likely lifespan to be five to 10.“So life expectancy at five to 10 years means I can be worth $5 to $20 million in these cases.”

March 5, 1997 - Michael hires George Felos, a Florida right-to-die attorney. Michael signs giving Felos the authority "to represent him in connection with the withdrawal and/or refusal of medical treatments. "One of the first things Felos did was have the finances sealed. [Mark Fuhrman, Silent Witness, page 135]
Note: George Felos was the attorney who appealed the Estelle Browning decision, and who is responsible for feeding tubes being added to the artificial life support list.
In his 2002 book Litigation as Spiritual Practice, Felos expresses his belief in the "cosmic law of cause and effect," in which the human mind is not limited by the constraints of reality.
Felos believes he used this "conscious evolution" in his first "right-to-die" case concerning Estelle Browning. Felos says when he was alone with Browning they shared a "soul touch" in which their spirits left their respective bodies and spoke to each other. It was in this encounter that Browning "told" Felos she wanted to die:
"As I continued to stay beside Mrs. Browning at her nursing home bed, I felt my mind relax and my weight sink into the ground. I began to feel lightheaded as I became more reposed. Although feeling like I could drift into sleep, I also experienced a sense of heightened awareness."
As Mrs. Browning lay motionless before my gaze, I suddenly heard a loud, deep moan and scream and wondered if the nursing home personnel heard it and would respond to the unfortunate resident. In the next moment, as this cry of pain and torment continued, I realized it was Mrs. Browning.
I felt the midsection of my body open and noticed a strange quality to the light in the room. I sensed her soul in agony. As she screamed I heard her say, in confusion, "Why am I still here ... Why am I here?" My soul touched hers and in some way I communicated that she was still locked in her body. I promised I would do everything in my power to gain the release her soul cried for. With that, the screaming immediately stopped. I felt like I was back in my head again, the room resumed its normal appearance, and Mrs. Browning, as she had throughout this experience, lay silent.

“Over twenty years ago I vowed to myself that, if I were hated by at least 20% of the people that despised my hero and role model, Joseph Fletcher, I would consider my life’s work completed.

Fox, Gary - Michael Schiavo's lead attorney in the malpractice suit
In November 1992, a jury in Clearwater returned a verdict in favor of Terri and Michael Schiavo for more than $6.8-million. The jury found that Terri had been the victim of substandard medical care that caused, in part, her coma. The jury also found that Terri was partly at fault and the verdict was reduced accordingly, to about $2-million. I was the lead trial lawyer for Terri and Michael.
I have followed from afar the saga of the Schiavo family since the trial. The battles over whether to disconnect Terri's life support have been extensively covered in the media. What has not been widely reported is the cause of Terri's coma. -Gary D. Fox [Michael Schiavo's lead attorney in the malpractice suit]

Kenneth Goodman, a University of Miami bioethicist said the record speaks for itself. He noted that Michael Schiavo, a one-time restaurant manager, became a nurse to better care for his wife and took her to California for experimental treatment after her unexplained 1990 collapse consigned her to a persistent vegetative state.
"And then he's maligned and vilified and condemned when he decides to get on with his private life," Goodman said. "Frankly, what he said his wife wanted is what most reasonable people want. It's primitive to believe that human consciousness is not important. What most of us value about life is cognition and communication and interaction. We don't value simply not being dead."

Grieco ,Daniel J. II-Schiavo attorney-employer ; Michael Schiavo was employed at Agostino’s restaurant, a restaurant in Feather Sound, (alleged mob connected) owned by the Grieco family.
Attorney Grieco Initiated and filed Schiavo’s guardianship documents -1990

He represented Schiavo in the Civil Fraud Case - 2001
1. His Sept 5, 1990 address on record: 19139 Gulf Blvd, Indian Shores, FL 34635
All the time I was off work staying with Terri, my paychecks from the restaurant continued, and eventually, Dan Grieco did as he had promised, and began helping us plan the initial legal moves that were essential. The first thing he did was tell us that we needed to file a guardianship petition so that I'd have the legal right to make all decisions for Terri. As the husband, I was able to approve her health-care treatment, but guardianship gave me power of attorney for her. Getting guardianship of another person means that you become that person. You are her mind and body. You speak for her legally.
Dan drew up the petition and we went before a judge. The court appointed a guardian ad litem to take Terri's side, but that person really doesn't do much in a case such as this. There was one court hearing, and on June 18, the court officially appointed me guardian. [Michael Schiavo: Terri: the Truth, page 31]

NOTE: Felos introduced newspaper stories showing that the Quinlan case was front-page news when Terri Schiavo was 11 or 12 years old. This action caused Judge George Greer to discount things Mrs. Schiavo said to her mother, and her friend Diane Meyer about Quinlan.
NOTE: Her mother, Mary Schindler, said she discussed with her daughter the famous right-to-die case of Karen Ann Quinlan, back when the legal fight to take Quinlan off a ventilator was front-page news. "If they take her off, she might die. Just leave her alone and she will die whenever," she said her daughter told her.

And I think when assisted suicide passes in the State of Florida, as I believe it will, that they will not have to market it because the people I know, and I think with due respect, the reason I found this such an unusual situation is that virtually everyone I know is terrified of a case like this. That is why I believe they would line up to take a pill or shot and go to sleep. [page 30, Murphy’s 2000 testimony]

Terri does not have a terminal illness, is not brain dead, and is not comatose. Other than some future intervening illness or accident, it is only lack of food and water that would cause her death. She is in a persistent vegetative state (“PVS”), which in itself will not cause her death. Florida law defines PVS separately from terminal illness, and employs the term as a separate concept in the procedural requirements to withdraw life-prolonging procedures. Section 765.101(17), Florida Statutes (2003) (defining “terminal condition” and including an expectation of death as a result of the condition); Section 765.101(12), Florida Statutes (2003) (defining “persistent vegetative state” and omitting any expectation of death as a result of the condition); Section 744.305(2), Florida Statutes (2003) (requiring one of three conditions before a surrogate can exercise the incompetent patient’s right to forego treatment: that the patient have an “end-stage condition,” or be in a persistent vegetative state, “or the patient’s physical condition is terminal.” (Emphasis added.) PVS is clearly not the same as a terminal illness. However, the state court inexplicably concluded that Terri is “terminal.” Schindler v. Schiavo (In re Guardianship of Schiavo), 792 So. 2d 551, 560 (Fla. 2d DCA 2001) (Schiavo II). The fact that she is unable to give herself nourishment is not a symptom of a dying body; it is the result of severe injury and disability.

Schiavo, Pamela ‘Pam’ -
Schiavo, Scott -Michael’s brother. In a ten year period, Scott Schiavo saw Terri one time, after her collapse in 1990.
11 [The] reason why I was out here for and I saw Terri is
12 that my sister-in-law was diagnosed with
13 inoperable brain cancer. This is my wife's
14 sister. Her last wish was for my wife's whole
15 family to go to Disney World. When we came out
16 here, my wife's grandmother had lived in
17 Clearwater, so we stayed here a couple of days.
In the 2000 trial he testified that Terri told him years earlier that she wouldn’t won’t to live hooked to tubes.
4 Q How did you -- how did it come about
5 that you mentioned that you remembered this event
6 at your grandmother's funeral?
7 A It was something that -- we all talked
8 about it that day. It was like we all went home,
9 grieved, and had to pretty much go on with our
10 lives. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever see
11 this happening to Terri, but when this was all
12 coming about --
13 Q When you say this was all coming about,
14 like when? The last couple of years or -
15 A No. No. It came up when I spoke to
16 Mike's lawyer about if I had ever heard Terri
17 mention this or that. If she ever came to me, sat
18 down and talked to me about something. This and
19 that. I had mentioned that on this date that at
20 my grandmother's funeral we talked about this as a
21 family. As all the kids in the family.
22 And Terri was sitting with us and Terri
23 made the mention that she would never want to be
24 kept alive like that. You know, if it is her time
25 to go, it's her time to go.
1 Q Do you remember approximately when that
2 was when you talked to -- it was Mr. Felos, I
4 A He called me on a Sunday morning.
5 Q Within the last year?

After Terri died he said:

Schultz-Wasserman, Debbie- Debbie Wasserman grew up on Long Island. Her father, Larry, was chief financial officer of Roanna Togs, Inc., a children’s clothing manufacturer in Manhattan, and her mother, Ann, managed a plant nursery. Her brother Steven, 39, is a lawyer in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington, DC. Her strong support for the gay community and for abortion rights helped to cement her reputation as one of the most liberal members of the legislature. But she reached across the aisle to win passage of a swimming pool safety bill and appealed to a broader constituency with her dogged fight for smaller class sizes. In 1996, she and other south Florida Jewish leaders successfully lobbied Governor Lawton Chiles to veto an education bill that would have allowed voluntary student-led prayer at graduations, assemblies and sporting events.
She is the first Jewish congresswoman from Florida. She drafted talking points for opponents of the GOP measure to save Terri Schiavo and challenged those she believed were misstating the facts surrounding Schiavo’s prognosis. She helped lead the Democratic counter-attack, arguing that Congress was overstepping its authority.
“It literally rips the hinges off the door of every family home in America and allows Congress to insert itself into any family dispute that it doesn’t agree with. It’s just absolutely unconscionable,” she said. “And the point is that I don’t know Terri. I’m not a doctor. I’m not a bioethicist. I don’t have any medical expertise, and neither does Congressman [Roy] Blunt.”

Sensenbrenner, James Jr. - US House Judiciary Committee Chairman
“Congress in a bipartisan fashion took up Terri’s cause and met in extraordinary sesion to provide Terri with an opportunity for a new, full, and fresh review in federal court of her right to receive life-sustaining treatment. Regrettably, this effort did not receive the court review the law requires.” [USA TODAY]
Shah, - primary care physician-Humana. Ken Deacon took his depo for 1992 medical malpractice case.
Shames, Mark I. -He was chairman of the probate and guardianship committee of the St. Petersburg Bar Association, 1993-1994. When Shames become judge, Pamela Campbell bought his law practice. As an Attorney Shames discussed the Schindlers’ potential case with them, before becoming a judge. Attorney-Judge. Approved George Felos as Michael Schiavo’s attorney (1997). Originally, Terri’s case started with Judge Shames in south Pinellas County (St. Petersburg).At some point in 1998- 1999, Felos filed with Judge Boyer or Caddell to have Terri’s case moved to the north county (Clearwater)
The petition was accepted into the court’s docket by Judge Mark Shames. This judge was previously attorney Mark Shames who had briefly counseled the parents of Terri Schiavo (Robert and Mary Schindler) in their efforts to remove Michael Schiavo as their daughter’s guardian.
Should Shames have recused himself entirely? Practical ethics say you can bet your backside on that. Should he have entertained Schiavo’s petition in 1998? Considering the law of the day, one can only conclude that the answer is no.
Shannon, Thomas - Professor of Religion and Social Ethics, Department of Humanities and Arts, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Massachusetts. . He was among the fifty-five  bioethicists who petitioned the Court on Michael Schiavo’s behalf.
Sheehan, James A. - He represented the Schindlers in their initial  unsuccessful attempt to have Michael Schiavo removed as Terri’s guardian. In a letter written by Mr. Sheehan, Let Schiavo case focus on issue of guardianship, published in SPTIMES, September 27, 2003, he writes:
The case today [September 27, 2003] has been presented as a debate over whether Terri Schiavo will ever recover or not and, therefore, whether her feeding tube should be removed. I believe it should still be about who should be the guardian. If Michael Schiavo is not interested in whatever money is left from the malpractice case and if he plans to get married after his wife has died, why doesn’t the court just remove him as the guardian? He can get a divorce and get on with his life. The Schindlers can then take care of their daughter for as long as they see fit. The court would then not be in the position of trying to determine the past (Did Terri want to live like this?) and predicting the future (Will Terri ever recover?)

"The Appleton Consensus" was originally published in the Journal of the. Danish

the Journal of Medical Ethics 1989; 15:129-136 and in the Icelandic Medical
Journal (Laeknabladid) 1989; 75: 303-311. As the introduction to the original
statement indicates, it was the work of thirty-three physicians, ethicists, and
medical economists meeting during two conferences and corresponding over a
period of two years. In the last plenary session of the second conference, the
delegates committed themselves to convene in their local communities discussion
groups in which they would promulgate and discuss the guidelines they had just
created. They voted that a study edition be produced by the editor that would
capture in study notes the important points of agreements and disagreements
articulated on the way to consensus and any particularly important insights that
did not find their way into the published statement.

On March 20, with a voice vote of only 3 members present, the bill was passed in the Senate. The House bill, by a vote of 203 to 58, was passed at 12:42 AM on March 21,2005. President George W.

Governor Jeb Bush declared he wanted the Florida Department of Children and Families to take custody of Terri, but Judge Greer issued an order preventing this action.
On March 24, the US Supreme Court declined a request to hear the case and overrule the 11th Circuit Court’s decision. A federal judge in Tampa, Fla, and the Florida Supreme Court refused requests to intervene.
On March 30,2005 the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals was petitioned but rejected a request for a new hearing. Terri Schiavo died at age 41 years at 9:05 AM on March 31, 2005, at the Woodside Hospice, in Pinellas Park, where she had lived for the passed five years..

We've learned as much about this tragic case, clinically, medically, scientifically, and legally, and it closes the door.
Dr. Jay Wolfson: I sincerely hope that this has provided a modest opportunity to shed some light on this most heart wrenching case. The best we can do is rely on good law, good science and good medicine - and do it honestly. the courts have done their jobs, and the rules of law and science have been applied as well as possible. there is no good or easy answer to this -- only the hope that the result will be in the best interests of Terri Schiavo. but there is no way to overcome the grief and dashed hopes of loving parents. but this is not about the parents, the family, the legislature, the governor, the congress or the president. it is only about terri.

Ironically, during that trial Michael’s attorney, Glenn Woodworth, showed a video of Terri, and argued that, even though she was in a "vegetative state," "you can tell she has some sense of her predicament." He also pointed out to the jury that "[on the film] she knows her husband and looks into his eyes."
