[Media Source*] (From Blogs for Terri:)
Today, the 2nd DCA denied the Schindlers' motion to withhold their mandate, which is expected to be issued tomorrow morning, Tuesday - February 22, 2005.
Upon learning of this, attorney George Felos contacted the Schindlers' attorney to inform him that he intended to instruct the staff at Hospice to remove Terri Schiavo's food and fluids at 1.00pm ET on Tuesday, February 22.
I choose the title because I know what it feels like to go without food for 80 hours. Although the reasons I did this were voluntary, Terri's scenario is not only against her will but until her death.
Nothing is more outrageous than this current judicial system and the MSM for ignoring the story altogether. It seems to me that many of the "bigger" bloggers are busy right now with problems of their own such as Instapundit (whose wife is in the hospital right now) and Power Line (who is responding to massive hate mail from liberal blogger readers) and that is understandable. But I sure could use their help right now. More from Blogs for Terri below. Sad Selah.
The Schindlers' attorney, David Gibbs, filed an emergency motion today for clarification and temporary stay, asking that the court direct no further action be taken until the rescheduled hearing on Wednesday, February 23, 2005 at 2.45pm ET. Mr. Gibbs also asked Mr. Felos if he and his client would refrain from instructing caregivers to remove food and fluids from Terri. Mr. Felos refused, stating that he was under instructions from his client.
Their may be some hope, however slim though.
Judge George Greer has declined to rule on the Schindlers' motion for clarification and stay until 1.00pm tomorrow, the same time Mr. Felos has declared Terri's tube will be removed.
It would be no surprise if Judge Greer ruled against the Schindlers. Mr. Felos has already declared that his client will remove the feeding tube and that Judge Greer does not have juristriction to interfere (do I sense a bit of cockiness here?). Could this be the Blogosphere's first loss in the battle of information? Only time will tell. We don't have much time left. A woman who appears to be conscious and not in a "vegetable state" who only needs a feeding tube because of the inability to feed herself will be starved to death.
