Join Terri's Cause on
Letter from Terri's Brother
Week of February 7, 2011
We have some exciting news we want to share with you! The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network was presented with the 2009-2010 Gerard Health Life Prize Award on January 22, 2011 in Washington, D.C.
The Life Prize Award is an annual prize given to those who have shown outstanding efforts to awaken the conscience of America to the sanctity of human life. It truly was an honor to be included in such a memorable event alongside such respected pro-life leaders. Some of the recipients have included Jill Stanek, Lila Rose, Alveda King and Kristan Hawkins, just to name a few.
Students for Life!
While in Washington, I also had the opportunity to speak at the Students for Life National Conference. They had close to 2,000 students participating in this annual event. It was inspiring to me seeing so many young, energetic college students and to share with them the importance of protecting the cognitively vulnerable in our society today.
Many of these students were shocked to hear the truth about what is happening all across America in regard to healthcare rationing and how ordinary is has become to remove basic care like food and water from persons with profound brain injuries, simliar to Terri, that are neither dying nor being kept alive by any type of machines. This year we will be traveling to campuses across the U.S. to speak to students about this vital issue.
Terris Day 2011!

|About Those Death Panels...
The very real threat of government health care rationing
By Wesley J. Smith
(The Weekly Standard) When Sarah Palin warned that Obamacare could lead to medical rationing and death panels, supporters were outraged. Alarmism! they roared. A lie! Right-wing propaganda! Alas for supporters of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Palins provocative sound bite was at least partly grounded in realitywhich is why the term entered the political lexicon.
Now, however, some are seeking to wield the term against conservatives. Case in point: The Arizona legislature recently cut its Medicaid budget because the state is in dire financial straitsa move approved by the Obama administration. (continue reading...)
