TERRI'S FEEDING TUBE WAS REMOVED.

Word was just received that Terri's parents were asked to leave Terri's room. Michael Schiavo was present when the feeding tube was removed.

Jodi's brother, J. Centonze stepped out of Michael's and Jodi's house in Clearwater and told reporter that Terri's feeding tube had been removed. Reported by Bay News Nine local news!

Schiavo said he allowed a prayer service without the family present. Terri's parents were asked to leave their daughter's room at 1:45 pm ET.

Her last initial feeding began at 11:00 am ET. She had some nutrition provided before Judge Greer ordered her feeding tube removed stated Barbara Weller, attorney for the Gibbs firm.

Terri's parents are very upset.

Note: There was no reason to pull her tube and put her through pain and discomfort. They could have capped her feeding tube off and prevented the pain she experienced from having a feeding tune pulled from her abdomen.

This is an outrage! People need to act now.

This is no more humane than when the first person was marched into a gas chamber!

 


They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. —Isaiah 40:31
