Jesse Jackson Enters Schiavo Fight

Tuesday, 29 March 2005 12:00 AM

After the meeting, the reverend is expected to make a statement to the press.

"The feeding tube should be reinstated," Jackson is quoted as saying. "This is a very tough emotional, ethical, political issue. But you know she is brain impaired, she is not brain-dead. And right now they're starving her to death."

Terri Schiavo, 41, collapsed in 1990 from cardiac arrest and suffered brain damage because of lack of oxygen. Her husband and guardian, Michael, does not want her kept alive; her parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, say Schiavo needs therapy that her husband has denied her.

Schindler supporters in Florida and Washington appealed Monday to have Terri Schiavo's feeding tube reinserted.

"They're dehydrating her to death," said Jackson, "and that raises profound ethical questions. That tube should be reinstated. She is not brain-dead. She's brain impaired. It's not right to starve her to death.

"That's not right ethically."
