Terri Schiavo

52299.6a00d83451b05569e20120a96cebd2970b-pi.jpg"Terri Schiavo's plight brought to light a critical question: To be a society that is truly human, how should we care for those most helpless patients who cannot speak for themselves?

A year ago Pope John Paul II answered this question, when he reaffirmed that "the administration of food and water, even when provided by artificial means," should be considered "morally obligatory" as long as it provides nourishment and alleviates suffering for such patients."
-Former Chairman of USCCB Committee for Pro-Life Activities
