Judge Greer must be impeached. There can be no dispute that he broke the law. Florida Statute 744.3215 (Rights of Persons Determined Incapacitated) requires that incapacitated people cannot be deprived of food and water. Yet, Greer ordered that the family may not introduce oral nutrition and hydration following the removal of Terriâ€™s gastric feeding tube. This is a clear violation of Florida law and even judges must follow the law.
A spokesman for the family of Terri Schindler Schiavo said Wednesday the Florida judge presiding over her case “ignores the stateâ€™s laws and orders the premeditated killing of a disabled Florida woman by her husband.”
Pamela Hennessy, media director for the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation, in a press release Wednesday called on disability and eldercare advocates to press for Circuit Judge George Greerâ€™s “immediate impeachment.”
“If there is a single person following this who doesnâ€™t believe Judge Greer has legislated from the bench, trampled Floridaâ€™s laws and deprived Terri Schiavo of her retained rights, they are simply not paying attention,” Hennessy said in a statement.
According to the foundationâ€™s press release, on Tuesday and Wednesday Greer issued three orders that the foundation said all but assures Schiavoâ€™s death. First, Greer ordered that the family may not introduce oral nutrition and hydration following the removal of Terriâ€™s gastric feeding tube. . . . . . . .
