Terri Schiavo's Family Upset Judge Greer Involved in Penn Bioethics Conference


Terri Schiavo's Family Upset Judge Greer Involved in Penn Bioethics Conference

Thanks to Nancy Valko, RN for this article. It begins:

Why should a local judge who repeatedly authorized a disabled woman's painful euthanasia death be a featured speaker at a bioethics conference at one of the nation's premier Ivy League colleges? That's what the family of Terri Schiavo wants to know about Circuit Court Judge George Greer's appearance at a seminar at the University of Pennsylvania.


The key to this story:

The title of the symposium sheds some light on why Greer may be featured. The bioethics center, which doesn't approach issues from a pro-life perspective, will run a conference called "The Legacy of the Terri Schiavo Case: Why is it so hard to die in America?"

Bobby Schindler, Terri's brother, will appear the conference and protest Greer's appearance, according to a statement sent to LifeNews.com.

"Judge Geer’s presence at the University of Pennsylvania's bioethics conference is not only outright offensive and inappropriate but it is indicative of his own biases against the disabled," Schindler said.

God bless!
