ST. PETERSBURG, FL, Feb. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- The family of Terri Schindler Schiavo wishes to express their grief for Eluana, her family, and all of Italy on this very sad day.
Pope John Paul II said that, "we must save ourselves from sinking into a 'culture of death.'"
"Sadly, Eluana's death again reminds us of the pope's words. Withholding her food and water - her most basic care - so that she would die, is really about us and how we are going to care for those who need our love and compassion to live", said Bobby Schindler, Terri Schiavo's brother.
The Schindler family urges everyone to keep Eluana's entire family in their prayers in the wake of this tragedy.
The mission of the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation is to develop a national network of resources and support for the medically-dependent, persons with disabilities, and the incapacitated who are in or potentially facing life-threatening situations.
Promoting a Culture of Life, "Terri's Foundation" embraces the true meaning of compassion by opposing the practice of euthanasia.
