[b:mplw46mm]Quote:US AG Gonzalez Asked to Enter Schiavo Case [/b:mplw46mm]

A formal request has been made to the U.S. Attorney General to initiate an investigation into the alleged civil rights violations of Terri Schindler-Schiavo.

Ted Hires, president of the Justice Coalition of Jacksonville, Fl., faxed his formal request late Saturday night to Alberto Gonzalez, U.S. Attorney General, in regard to the alleged federal violations committed under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Hires has urged all Americans to contact the Attorney General’s office, requesting him to investigate the facts of the violations and take Terri Schiavo into protective custody until these allegations have been thoroughly reviewed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Justice Coalition is a victims’ rights group who believes that Terri’s civil rights as a disabled adult, her due process and health care provisions have been unjustly denied by the Florida Courts.

The Schindler family requested assistance from the Justice Coalition last month and the group entered the case as a victims advocate. For more than a decade, the Schindlers have battled their son-in-law, Michael Schiavo, in the Florida courts in an effort to save their daughter’s life.

Terri sustained serious brain damage as the result of a mysterious incident at her home on Feb. 25, 1990, when her brain was deprived of oxygen for a period of time. Medical reports and experts indicated that she may be a victim of attempted strangulation.
