Neurologist who examined Terri says she can swallow and eat by mouth

From BPNews:

A doctor close to the Terri Schiavo case told the Florida Baptist Witness that the 41-year-old disabled woman could actually be fed orally if it were allowed.

"The important thing for people to understand is that she can eat and swallow right now,” said William Hammesfahr, a neurologist who has examined Schiavo. He is in many of the videos circulated through the news media showing that Schiavo is at times responsive and aware.

"They are truly withholding food from a person who is awake, alert, and can eat and swallow,” Hammesfahr said. After spending at least 10 hours with Schiavo several years ago, he told Florida Judge George W. Greer that she can improve with therapy.

This is another of those doctors that the MSM like to pretend do not exist. While Dr. Melvin Greer and Dr. Peter Bambakidas spent a combined total of less than two hours with Terri before proclaiming her in a PVS -- inspite of very clear evidence to the contrary, Dr. Hammesfahr spent ten hours with her. It's unclear how many hours well-known pro-euthanasia advocate Dr. Ronald Cranford spent with Terri, but given his background it is amazing anyone would take him seriously. But then this whole case is about making a complete mockery of the judicial system in order to murder an innocent woman, so it wouldn't surprise me if the started quoting Dr. Seuss as a medical expert.
