Pat Anderson's Legal Approach

The following statements by Pat Anderson are excerpts from Wesley J. Smith's  article, Terri Schiavo’s Life and Death

Pat Anderson's legal approach: Provision of food and water by mouth is not a medical treatment and thus cannot be withdrawn or withheld legally from a patient who can assimilate nutrition and hydration. 

Under Florida law, the right to rehabilitation is retained by the ward, and not delegated to the guardian. 

[Michael Schiavo has no legal right to deny Terri rehabilitation!]

While a Florida Court of Appeals ordered the removal of Terri's tube-feeding an order with which Judge Greer seems eager to comply, it cannot be done in such a way as to "harm" Terri, e.g. without giving her a chance to survive by taking food and water by mouth.  

[Amen! Denying food and water by mouth is not lawful.]

update: The fact that denying food and water by mouth is not lawful did not stop Judge Greer from issuing an illegal court order on February 25, 2005, that caused the death of Terri Schiavo.
