Priests for Life



Staten Island, NY – The family of Terri Schiavo, along with the Priests for Life organization, has established the observance of “Terri’s Day” each March 31, the anniversary of her death by deliberate dehydration. 

Bobby Schindler, Terri’s brother, said, “This third anniversary should be an occasion for all of us to both remember the injustice done to Terri, and reach out to others with prayer and concrete action when they need the kind of help Terri needed.” 

Suzanne Vitadamo, Terri’s sister, added, “Our family continues to be consoled and uplifted by the many ways in which people honor my sister, learn from her story, and grow in compassion for all the disabled.” 

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, “Terri’s death was not the end of her fight.  It was the beginning of a new chapter in the pro-life movement.  I call upon all those who were moved by Terri’s death to continue their courageous activism in the cause of life, and never to be silent.” 

Priests for Life ( and the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation ( encourage churches, families, organizations and individuals to observe Terri’s Day with prayers, memorial services, educational activities and community outreach.  Project ideas and prayer resources can be found at
