Joni Eareckson Tada on Terri Schiavo

I am deeply concerned about what's happening next with the sad matter of Terri Schiavo whose estranged husband is desperately trying to cut off her life by starving her to death. Yes she is disabled, but not brain dead. Here is what Evangelical author Joni Eareckson Tada had to say about the situation:
"Thousands of Americans with disabilities understand the gravity of Terri's situation. We know that if every last legal safeguard around this brain-injured woman is dismantled, if every option is exhausted, then all of us are exposed, all of us are left vulnerable. And all of us will have to swim against the mounting tide of public opinion that Terri's demise will reinforce, that one is 'better off dead than disabled.' We must not, we cannot let this happen." -- Joni Eareckson Tada, JAF International Disability Center
We're running out of time. Follow the links to determine a way to help this woman in need.
