Terri Schiavo Parent's Foundation Harrassed
Florida officials are investigating the foundation set up by parents of Terri Schiavo, used to raise funds for legal costs to keep her alive.Why do the people who oppose life harrass those who wish to preserve it?
The Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation, created by Robert and Mary Schindler, seeks donations to "offset some of the expenses associated with protecting Terri," says the Web site, terrisfight.org.
Terri Schiavo has been kept alive for 15 years by a feeding tube. Her husband says she would not want to be kept alive by artificial means.
The Schindlers face a $1,000 fine and could be ordered to stop collecting donations on the Web site because they have failed to file paperwork with the state of Florida, the Palm Beach Post reported Tuesday.
The majority of the Schindlers' attorney's costs have been paid by two anti-abortion [i.e., abortion abolitionist] groups -- the Life Legal Defense Foundation and the Alliance Defense Fund, said the Schindler's attorney, Barbara Weller.
Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, said he has received about $340,000 in legal fees, from a $1.2 million medical malpractice settlement awarded to Michael Schiavo on his wife's behalf.
