Statement by President Bush on Terri Schindler-Schiavo

Mar 17, 2005 | Terri

Released March 17, 2005
by the Office of the Press Secretary, The White House:



The case of Terri Schiavo raises complex issues.  Yet in instances like this one, where there are serious questions and substantial doubts, our society, our laws, and our courts should have a presumption in favor of life.  Those who live at the mercy of others deserve our special care and concern.  It should be our goal as a nation to build a culture of life, where all Americans are valued, welcomed, and protected – and that culture of life must extend to individuals with disabilities.
