Terri Schiavo: Some quotes and links

"The patient is not in a coma, she is alert and responsive to her environment. She responds to specific people best. She tries to please others by doing activities for which she gets verbal praise." -- conclusion of neurologist and 1999 Nobel Prize nominee William Hammesfahr, M.D, after observing Terri.

"The above behaviors are all indicative of cognition. They are completely inconsistent with a diagnosis of vegetative state." -- " clinical neuropsychologist Dr. Alexander Gimon, in an August 2003 affidavit after reviewing videotapes of Hammesfahr's examination.

"When is that bitch gonna die?" -- Michael Schiavo, according to the September 2003 deposition of Terri's nurse, Carla Iyer

"neurologist and 1999 Nobel Prize nominee William Hammesfahr, M.D"---
Sadly, recent evidence has revealed that Dr. Hammesfahr's "Nobel Prize nominations" are clever deceptions that do not measure up to the hard reality of truth. He should not be cited as receiving such nominations, because, in fact, they do not exist. His "nominations" are from hopefully well-meaning, but uninformed individuals (a legislator) or organizations (National Association of Chiefs of Police) who are not eligible to nominate anyone for the Nobel Prize in Medicine, any more than I am eligible to nominate you for the King of the World. The actual nominations for this extraordinary recognition of intellectual endeavor, the Nobel Prize, are KEPT SECRET FOR 50 YEARS, so anyone using the term "Nobel Prize nominee" is NOT supported by the Nobel Prize Committee. An email letter to me from that august body follows:

Dear Dr Wenger:
Thanks for your letter and point about our confidentiality regarding nominees. Specific answers to your questions:
1) All nominations, nominees and nominators are kept in strict confidentiality here for 50 years.
2) There is no way for any person to get confirmation/message from here whether they were nominated or not for any year during the last 50 years.
3) Therefore, if anyone claims being nominated it is never with support from here and should not be regarded as a valid claim.
4) The Nobel Foundation acts on all misuses of the Nobel name, but do not always act on nomination claims since there are so many who claim nominations that the Nobel system simply leaves them without specific action and only inform to all asking that nomination claims are by definition non-valid.

Sincerely,
Hans Jörnvall, Professor
Secretary
The Nobel Committee

Please do not cite this doctor's false credentials that give undeserved weight to his opinions in further articles.
Sincerely,
Thomas J. Wenger, M.D.

I simply quoted the source. Personally I see any reference to the Nobel prizes as a bad mark since they are more of a sad joke than anything else.
