“Terri's Day” to Be Observed in Remembrance of Terri Schiavo

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: January 8, 2009

NEW YORK, January 7 – Terri’s Foundation and Priests for Life once again invite individuals, families, Churches and organizations to observe the "International Day of Prayer and Remembrance for Terri Schindler Schiavo, and All of Our Vulnerable Brothers and Sisters" ("Terri's Day") on March 31, the fourth anniversary of Terri's death.

The two organizations established this day last year. Its purpose is to foster education, prayer, and activism regarding discrimination against the disabled, and advocacy for people in situations similar to what Terri and her family faced.

Suzanne Vitadamo, Terri's sister, and Bobby Schindler, her brother, stated on behalf of the family, “Sadly, our recent headlines are a clear indication that what happened to Terri is only getting worse. We are seeing that many of our institutions caring for our most vulnerable are being encouraged to devalue the sanctity of human life. Indeed, this is influenced by a very strong pro-death movement continuing to work very hard to legitimize euthanasia and assisted suicide.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, who was with Bobby and Suzanne at Terri’s bedside as she was dying, said, "As we consoled Terri and prayed with her, what I felt most strongly was the presence of countless people around the world who, by their love, prayers, and tears, accompanied Terri and her family through those difficult days. I am confident that these same individuals, families, and Churches will want to observe Terri’s Day."

Materials to assist the observance of Terri’s Day can be found at www.TerrisDay.org.
