The Pro-Life Action League joins the Schindler family and all pro-life Americans in mourning the death of Terri Schiavo. Terri died on March 30 of organ failure brought on by starvation and dehydration thirteen days after her feeding tube was removed by court order.

“It’s disappointing that the efforts of so many pro-life activists and disabled rights activists were unable to prevent the killing of an innocent woman,” said League National Director Joe Scheidler, “but we are thankful that we were a part of that great effort.”

League Executive Director Ann Scheidler added, “Our prayers go out to the Schindler family, who can at least be consoled that they did everything humanly possible to fight for Terri’s life.”

The League also joins the pro-life community in concern over what the lasting impact of Terri Schiavo’s killing will be. Will Schindler v. Schiavo prove to the the Roe v. Wade of euthanasia? Or will the nation respond by reforming the bad laws—and the renegade judiciary—that allowed this tragedy to ensue?
