To the Amnesty International USA staff:
Please note that the family and friends who are fighting for the life of Terri Schindler Schiavo feel she is on death row awaiting execution. She is an innocent victim caught up in a judicial nightmare in which she has no voice. Sound familiar? Think of the prisoners on death row awaiting execution, whose appeals are denied or evidence is ignored.
I recently read Sister Helen Prejean's newest book, "Death of Innocents" and was struck by the similarities in those two cases and Terri's. How much questionable and seemingly irrefutable evidence does the Sixth Circuit Court have to hear in order to take it seriously and stop the planned execution of this innocent disabled woman?
Please intervene before another life is lost and a terrible precedent is set for euthanasia.
