Geraldo Show, At Large, Guest Attorneys Both Agree, Terri Should Live
10-26-03 | sisterjforteri

Posted on 10/26/2003 8:15:23 PM PST by sisterjforteri

Just finished watching Geraldo's show, At Large, where Bobby Jr. and Robert Schindler were both on discussing Terri's case. Geraldo is in Terri's court! Also: Both guest attorneys, Christopher Darden and Alan Dershowitz ( I apologize if I mis-spelled his name ) agree that Terri should live!!! They said, especially with her parents and siblings willing to care for her. Both of them, as you all probably know, where involved in the O.J. Simpson case. Also: Michael Baden is involved now. Remember, theres power in numbers. I think I can rest well tonight.

I know - I was a little shocked. I was really expecting Alan to be on Michael's side, but no, he wasn't. They both thought that she should be appointed a new guardian and that she should live, especially, with her family willing to care for her. The miracles just keep on happening for Terri. This show tonight really tickled me because I have been praying for a "Dream Team" for Terri, and I knew Greta Van Susteran was on her side, but I'm really glad to know that both Chris and Alan are also!!! Terri's family and attorney should contact both of them.

I used to listen to Alan's radio show. Exactly 50% of the time I was rolling my eyes; the other 50% of the time I was thinking 'Right On'. Lately, it's been more 'Right On'. (Iraq, Israel, Terri, etc.)

Yes, I think so. Get them all involved. Every single big, well-known name that you can think of! How about Christopher Reeves?! We need to contact his foundation next, I think.

Really surprised that Alan Dershowitz said that Terri should live & be cared for by her parents. First time I've ever agreed with anything he has said!


Please write to Greta & Geraldo and ask them to give Terri's Case a half hour or full hour to balance Michael Schiavo on Larry King Live tomorrow.

This is GREAT NEWS. I guess I turned Geraldo off too soon. I was so disapointed in the inteveiw with the brother and father of Terri. I am SO GLAD TO HEAR this now.

Yes! The CNN Wolf Blitzer poll is currently at 51%, superceding Michael, too! I e-mailed Geraldo and suggested that he have Chris and Alan help the Schindlers put together a "Dream Team" for Terri. Not sure if that'll happen, but I'm always optimistic.

Is there anyone who has emails for the Schindlers? WE need to email them the CNN poll numbers-to balance out the huge AOL poll that you know the monsters will be using. And we need to email them about these attorneys....they CANNOT be everywhere-and they have Terri to tend to when that monster allows them....and we need to email the new story out on WND about Terri, it is wonderful, and I hear the Chicago Tribune has an article out speaking of an investigation of MICHAEL SHIAVO......How can we be sure the Schindlers have all this info...they cannot keep on top of everything...let's find out how to email them...they NEED this INFORMATION BEFORE they meet with the monsters TOMORROW.

Let's not underestimate why Michael Baden could comment on the case...(HBO Documentaries: Autopsy)...think about the forensic evidence that he can identify regarding the cause of injuries ...very interesting.

Geraldo misspoke, said Terri had the right to continue "intravenous" feeding.

But I vladded him (looked into his soul) :) He is sympathetic and needs a good blizzard of informative email.

From FoxNews Channel Oct 27,2003 - At Large with Geraldo Rivera:

Geraldo: The law in Florida, as both of you gentlemen know, recently changed, to empower Governor Jeb Bush to order the re-insertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube against the wishes of her husband. The Governor's actions had the effect therefore, of overruling a court order that went the opposite way... that gave the husband the right to have that feeding tube disconnected.

Geraldo: Professor Dershowitz... Do you represent Mister Schiavo? And you want that woman's feeding tube disconnected to give that woman the right to die? You are challenging the constitutionallity of the Governor's actions...

Geraldo: Chris... You're the state Attorney General in Florida. You are defending the Governor's actions on legal and humanitarian grounds, You've got the, ahhhh, lets see, who has the burden to overruling the courts?... I think Chris, you have the burden; You go first.

Christopher Darden: Well, you know, certainly the state of Florida has an interest in preserving life, and in preserving the health and welfare of its citizens. And in a situation like this, where Terri Schiavo has been in this condition for several years, and her WISHES, ahh, and intent are unclear, in terms of what she would have liked to have happen, had she been aflicted in the manner that she has. Well, certainly the state ought to step in under these circumstances and do what it thinks is right and proper. Now certainly this new law overturned a court ruling, but as Alan knows courts are sometimes wrong. We know that just by looking at the Tommy Chong case.

Geraldo: (laughs) Ok, Professor Dershowitz?

Dershowitz: This is a hard one for me Geraldo. My own personal view is that when there are doubts about what she wanted... when you have a family member who is willing to care for her and wants her to be alive... When you have possible conflicts of interest... GENERALLY doubts ought to be resolved in favor of life. I think the courts were probably, my own view, WRONG in this case. They should have appointed a guardian who would have defended her right to live, rather than her right to die... BUT, having said that, I certainly don't like courts being overruled, by politically motivated legislatures and governors... Nobody should be playing political football with the life of an individual. So I would argue that even if the court decision was wrong, the court decision should prevail over legislation that was designed to specifically overrule a particular court decision.

Geraldo: Chris, how do you defend the seemingly ex-post-facto nature of the legislature's action?

Darden: Well, I don't know that its ex-post-facto. The fact is that this issue is now in front... was in front of the legislature, is now in front of the governor, and, and as Alan just aluded to a moment ago, there are a LOT of uncertainties here. And it is the type of emergency situation I would suggest that that requires some ahh, some intervention.

Dershowitz: If there were any danger that she were in any pain, I would have a very different view. But without ahh, evidence of pain, and with evidence of uncertainty, and with the willingness of parents to take care of her... I'm stepping out of my role as counsel now... I really DO think that doubts generally ought to be resolved in favor of life... You have eternity to be dead; You only have a limited amount of time to live. Even if she has NO chance of recovery, the family has the RIGHT not to have her die, and the state shouldn't be in the business of telling people when to die.

Geraldo: I rule that you're both right. Terri Schiavo is to be continued on the intravenous feeding. Ah, her family should be granted, ah custodial rights over her, and ah, give the right to life some priority in this particular instance.

Geraldo: Thank you both, Thanks for watching,(smooch) see-ya.

The SCOTUS ruled in CALDER v. BULL, 3 U.S. 386 (1798) that this kind of legislation is not an ex post facto law.

Mark Fuhrman would be great. He is excellent at arguing issues.

For the third time I find myself agreeing with A: He defended Johnny Rocker, Rush, and now Terri. (Conservative columnist Suzanne Fields says let her die.)

At stake is Terri's life and preventing a torturous murder. If Terri had felt strongly about dying, she would have made a "living will." There is no proof that she wants to die.

Good idea. Reeves should be contacted. And what about the children & lawyer of Sunny von Buhlen?

If there parents are willing to care for Terri, why kill her?

Dershowitz on the side of life, hmmm. Even his arguements for her being able to die don't actually pertain to her wishes - they are the wishes of her husband.

Even if Michael got a divorce with no alimony, what happens if Terri recovers enough to sue the [bleep] who made her last 13 years miserable?

Thanks for telling us this surprising news.

I wish I would have seen that show. I'm sure Felos can't be too happy about Dershowitz' stand.
