Terri Schiavo’s family joins fight to prevent starvation of teen declared ‘legally dead’ by hospital | LifeSiteNews.com

The following excerpts are from LifeSiteNews.com:

  • Terri Schiavo’s family has thrown their weight behind an Oakland family’s effort to save their daughter’s life from doctor-ordered starvation after a routine tonsillectomy left her brain-damaged and unable to breathe on her own.
  • Jahi McMath, 13, was declared “brain dead” by doctors at Oakland’s Children’s Hospital on December 12, after a Dec. 9 procedure went horribly wrong and she suffered cardiac arrest in the recovery room.  Since then, the hospital has been fighting to remove the eighth-grader from all life support, even going so far as to persuade a judge to declare her “legally dead” in the eyes of the state of California, where the law defines death as an absence of brain activity.
  • The Terri Schiavo Life and Hope Network (Terri’s Network) released a statement Tuesday announcing they are working to get Jahi released from Children’s Hospital and safely transferred to a facility that will give her the care she needs to survive.
  • Terri’s Network said they believe the teen’s situation is “representative of a very deep problem within the U.S. healthcare system – particularly those issues surrounding the deaths of patients within the confines of hospital corporations, which have a vested financial interest in discontinuing life.”
  • Both Terri’s Network and Jahi’s family and supporters argue that California’s current definition of death allows doctors to put living patients to death in order to harvest their healthy organs.
