Unreported Truth About Terri Schiavo Revealed by Lawyer Who Fought for Her

Nearly two years ago the nation was rocked when an innocent woman was court ordered to die. The media was overtaken with the trial, reporting facts and updates, flashing images of the family and the courtroom, and spurring on endless debates about the right to life. Regardless of where you stand on the life and death of Terri Schindler Schiavo, the story of both the legal and human struggle she represents remains one to which we should all listen. Yet despite all the information crammed into the minds of America, the key facts surrounding the trial—facts that could have altered the tragic outcome and the course of a nation—were not reported. Now David Gibbs, the attorney who fought for Terri Schiavo, speaks out in Fighting for Dear Life: The Untold Story of Terri Schiavo and What It Means for All of Us, offering information the nation was previously denied. A Few of the Facts That Weren’t Reported: • Terri was never on a ventilator. Her only "life support" was assistance with food and water at mealtimes—something she might have overcome with therapy. • Michael Schiavo and the court denied access to more than forty medical professionals, doctors, and neurologists who believed Terri had not been properly diagnosed. • Terri could recognize her parents and respond to them, attempting to speak. • Terri was so healthy that it took 13 days for her to die—even without an ounce of food or water. • A Florida death row cell would have been safer for Terri than her hospice room since you can’t starve a convicted criminal, or even an animal, according to Florida law. Fighting for Dear Life is more than just a book of misreported facts. It is a powerful and compelling story about a woman who was denied her right to recovery and life. It is a book about the preciousness of life, about real-life courtroom drama, and about how Terri Schiavo’s death has affected everyone in America. Topics discussed in-depth in the book include: • Terri’s true medical and mental conditions • Why her death never should have happened • Why her death matters so critically for us as we grapple with the value of life and the question of who decides Special features of the book include: • More than 40 black-and-white photos depicting both Terri’s life and the full span of the Schiavo case • Detailed timelines of the 14-year fight for Terri’s life • Frequently asked questions about Terri and the trial • Sample Health Care Surrogate form—a form that, should you be rendered incapacitated, enables someone of your choosing to make health care decisions for you • Full text of Terri’s Law—the full law that was drafted and passed to help save Terri’s life • Full text of the Act of Congress from March 20, 2005, that brought the Schiavo case to the federal level "Regardless of where you stand on the life and death of Terri Schindler Schiavo, the story of both the legal and human struggle she represents remains one to which we should all listen." —Nancy A. Grace, Host of CNN-Headline News' Nancy Grace Show and Court TV’s Nancy Grace’s Closing Argument "Fighting for Dear Life proclaims the clear message that we long for the world to hear. David fought courageously to save Terri's life and loved our family during some of the darkest hours of our lives." —Bob and Mary Schindler, Parents of Terri Schiavo "Many thanks to David Gibbs for providing us with a powerful insider's look into the inhumane, court-ordered injustice perpetrated against Terri Schiavo. No reader of this book will be able to remain unconcerned about the chilling precedent her case sets and its implications for the future. It's a moving and compelling reminder of why we need to defend those who cannot speak for themselves and uphold the sanctity of all human life!" —Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family "David Gibbs argues convincingly that life is a precious gift from God that must be protected." —Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida
