Item Description...
Why Does Terri Schiavo's Life--and Death--Matter for America?

David Gibbs took a leap of faith in 2003 when Bob and Mary Schindler, Terri Schiavo's parents, asked him to represent them in their desperate battle to save their daughter's life. Taking the case, Gibbs embarked on a compelling journey that would forever change his life. He watched Terri fade away in her final days and was with Mary Schindler the last time she saw Terri alive. He witnessed what the media did not see or report: that Terri was not a vegetable; that she laughed, cried, and responded to verbal commands; and that yes, her life was very much worth saving.

David Gibbs says,
"After Terri died, Bob and Mary asked me to tell what really happened--specifically the tragedy of this landmark case--so that many others would be spared from a similar fate. I make no apology that, from my perspective, what happened to Terri was wrong. Very wrong. Maybe you agree. Then again, maybe you disagree, or the jury is still out in your mind. I believe if you will join me as I present my case, you will come to understand:

Why I fought for Terri.
Why I'd do it again.
And why I'd fight for you, too.

Now, read the story for yourself and learn how you can protect yourself and your family against a similar tragedy."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wow...excellent book!  Feb 20, 2007
This book was fantasically written and a true eye opener of the real facts! I was very saddened of the outcome, but it really makes you wonder...are all of your affairs are in order???
What Was Terri Schiavo Doing in a Hospice?  Jan 6, 2007
The heinous death of the most famous resident of Florida 's Woodside Hospice certainly leaves me baffled - to say the least. My understanding is that the hospice movement has grown incredibly over the past two decades - largely due to Medicare reimbursement. Eligibility for Medicare hospice services requires certification by two physicians that a patient's terminal illness limits life expectancy to six months - at tops. How on earth was Terri Schiavo ever accepted into a hospice?

From attorney David Gibbs, I have learned that Terri Schiavo was far, far more responsive and interactive than America was led to believe. Yet, her cognitive level should not have determined whether she received food and water! Mr. Gibbs refers to a 2004 statement by Pope John Paul II, which seemed directly related to the immorality of how Terri was treated: "the administration of water and food, even when provided by artificial means, always represents a natural means of preserving life, not a medical act."
Now I need to hear Michael's side of the story.  Dec 21, 2006
First of the entire book is extremely well written and riveting. I enjoyed every page. Congratulations to the author! I appreciate Mr. Gibb's point of view, however, it is just that. Although he doesn't flat out call Michael a monster he implies it multiple times. A personal situation forced me to contemplate my wife in a vegetative state many times as she battled a debilitating brain tumor. The thought of the light of your life living any other way but as she once was as a vibrant woman is unbearable. It is clear that Terri wasn't in a permanent vegetative state, however, she would never, not in a million years of therapy, be as she once was. That thought haunted Michael every day since the accident and every night now that she has passed. The Shindlers did not respect his decisions surrounding her care and future despite his legal right to manage those things. They violated a trust bestowed to him on their wedding day. I know exactly what he feels as I experienced a very similar thing in my life. I know it sounds harsh that he forbade her parents from being with Terri when she died, but it was his last opportunity to say to the Swindler, "What you did by prolonging this atrocity and dragging me through a mile of broken glass is unforgivable." Some things are just that. Unforgivable.
Scary  Dec 11, 2006
I haven't quite finished this book, but I have read enough to say that the whole outcome of the story is very scary. I don't know if Michael Schiavo was ever violent or not, but he was obviously very controlling. This is the type of man who often falls into wife abuse. I don't know why he refused treatment for his wife when it could have helped to make her better, even though not whole again, but one has to ask questions. But get this, and this is the scary part: Today, in the United States of America, a woman COULD be abused by her husband, COULD be choked by said husband, collapse in her home, be taken to the hospital and awake not quite the same as before. (I am not saying Mr Schiavo did this, but someone else could) Said husband (from here on, all of this WAS done by Mr Schiavo) could then sue her doctors for malpractice and win (even when there was no evidence of said malpractice), swearing the money will go to taking care of his wife, and crying in court etc, etc. Then do an about face, refusing treatment of any kind for his wife (even though she was capable of saying some words and communicating in some way), dump her in a hospice for dying people, watch her deteriorate, when she could have gotten better instead, with the money he got for her, and then find a doctor and a lawyer who are just a little too enthousiastic about euthanasia to really question whether this particular patient should be euthanised, and spend most of this money on court orders to get his wife put down once and for all. Because he had something to hide. Because maybe if she got better, she might remember something that would put him in jail for a very long time. What is really scary is that said abusive husband could do all this, and with the benediction of the legal system, and get away with it. Because if Michael Sciavo got away with refusing to let anyone near his wife to prove that she wasn't a vegetable, then so could anyone else. The judges who deemed her a vegetable, never actually saw her. More than a few doctors put their careers on the line to say that she wasn't a vegetable, from what they could see (they weren't allowed to examine her professionally), and despite all the witness accounts that she was not a vegetable, that she was in fact capable of recognizing people, and trying to say words, the judges ruled that she was, without ever bothering to check for themselves. Her parents and her lawyer tried everything. Nothing worked. That is scary. Now why don't the feminists dig their teeth into THAT? Because that is a concern for every woman. Especially any woman living with a violent or controlling partner. I wonder what Terri would have to say today, if custody had been given to her parents instead, and she had been allowed treatment. Did Mr Schiavo have something to hide? The whole thing makes no sense otherwise. Why go to such lengths otherwise, to have your wife put away for good? When with a little treatment and physiotherapy she might have even learned to eat and drink again, and not need a feeding tube at all. (That was all she needed, she was not hooked up to any other tubes.)
Gripping story  Nov 28, 2006
Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for Reader Views (11/06)

David Gibbs watched, as Terri Schiavo died a slow death. He makes no apologies for stating that he believes that Teri was done an injustice. David Gibbs answers the questions: "Why I fought for Terri, Why I'd do it again. And why I'd fight for you too." Whether you agree or disagree with Mr. Gibbs opinion you will come to a new understanding of why he felt he had to defend Terri's right to live to the end.

The first time Mr. Gibbs visited with Terri he found a very different patient than he expected. "I found Terri sitting in a recliner...No IV Drip. No monitors. No ventilator. No indication. of any form of artificial life support in use. Even the feeding tube was unattached to the port in Terri's stomach." "It was clear that Terri understood who the different people were in the room. At the sound of her mother's voice, Terri squealed with delight" It was obvious to David that Terri heard him and understood what he said to her.

Mr. Gibbs pays close attention to detail. He relies upon his experience as an attorney and his belief in God as he tells the story behind the legal battle that sentenced Terri to death. He shares in detail her last days. He discusses what the courts decision could mean for you and I.

I applaud Mr. Gibbs for his stance in this issue. This book is well written and one all should read. Regardless of which side of the issue you stand on the ramifications could affect you or someone you love. "Fighting for Dear Life" is an eye opener. I highly recommend this book.
