MARYLAND, United States, April 3, 2006 ( – In an interview with John Lofton of the American View, Terri Schiavo’s brother, Bobby Schindler, said his family is fighting to stop the ongoing murder of disabled people in America.

“There’s a powerful and strong death movement occurring in our country,” said Mr. Schindler.

“We are removing feeding tubes from people every single day, and killing them, but nobody seems to care – it doesn’t seem to disturb anybody, that we’re starving and de-hydrating people to death.”

He said such killing is possible because there is a belief among those who advocate it that the disabled are worthless and have no value.

“Michael Schiavo and the people working for him, obviously killed Terri because she was disabled, because they believed she had no worth, because they believed she had no quality of life, and this perfectly justified to them to kill her in this manner.”

“Instead of loving and caring and showing her compassion they looked at my sister as being an inconvenience. And therefore, ended her life…we have to stay focused and try to change what’s happening in our country.”

Terri’s brother said it makes no difference what arguments Michael Schiavo produces to try and defend his actions, because nothing will change the truth that his sister was murdered.

“This is why our family is fighting, why our family created our foundation – to try and stop this from happening to other families.”

“[That is] the reason we created this foundation, and why our family is continuing to do what we can to stop this horrible thing that’s happening to our disabled and hopefully God willing, we’ll continue and expose this movement and change the laws and protect the disabled, because right now they’re very vulnerable to what’s happening – we saw with my sister and hopefully we can stop it from happening in the future.”
