PRESS RELEASE

THE COMPASSIONATE HEALTHCARE NETWORK CHN

REGARDING THE STARVATION DEATH OF TERRI MARIE  SCHIAVO

 
The Compassionate Healthcare Network CHN took a stand with countless Schindler and Terri Schiavo supporters fighting to have her feeding tube installed.  This is the worst gross miscarriage of so-called justice in the history of the United States of America.  Founder and President of CHN Cheryl Eckstein said, "Only one thing Terri needed aside from food and water, and that was mercy. " No where in any court of the United States of America did Terri Marie Schiavo receive mercy.  Even when one death penalty prisoner was given a stay of execution last week, the highest court in the land dismissed her appeals to have her feeding tube reinstalled. 

"Throughout this incredible ordeal, Terri was treated more like a convicted death penalty case  than for who she was - an innocent woman who fell victim to some illness that caused brain damage" said Eckstein.  Terri was denied therapy and access to some of the newer medical advances that may have helped her to recover.  "Seeing her - one always had a strong sense she was determined to live," quipped Eckstein.  For years, Terri's guardian, her estranged husband Michael Schiavo, sought the only way to he could legally hope to kill her.  Cheryl Eckstein stressed that "Terri was so healthy the only way to make her die was to starve and dehydrate this incredible woman."    "There is not a single written record of Terri saying what Michael Schiavo says she said .... this is the saddest most  unconceivable aberration of "she said he said," that has tragically resulted in the slow murder of a woman who proved to the world she wanted to live, added  Eckstein

Mrs Eckstein stated:  "On behalf of our organization and Terri's supporter's throughout Canada, we wish to send our prayers to the Schindlers and their family.  No mother or father put up a better fight to save their beloved daughter than they.  For 15 years they never gave up hope nor their fight to save their beloved Terri."
