APPEAL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS FROM TERRI SCHIAVO'S FATHER

In a lengthy email I received this afternoon, as a subscriber to "Human Events" newsletters, Terri Schiavo's father, Bob Schindler Sr., is making a broad-based appeal for contributions, saying:

I'm asking you for your help. We desparately need your financial assistance to help our family continue the battle to keep our daughter from being starved to death. There are so many expenses in a case like this it is mind-boggling and overwhelming.

Our adversaries believe that by our family's financial attrition and difficulties, they will attain their objective of killing our daughter. Presently, Terri's starvation may only be a few weeks away, unless we find the financial resources to prevent this atrocity from becoming a reality.
