The truth about Terri

From LifeNews:

Dr. William Hammesfahr is an internationally recognized expert on cases of brain-injured patients. He has been identified in helping patients with chronic brain injuries from many causes actually leave long term disability, and return to work.

Terri Schiavo's injury, hypoxic encephalopathy, is a type of stroke that he treats every day with success.

"We, and others I know, have treated many patients worse than Terri and have seen them regain independence and dignity," Hammesfahr said.

"There are many approaches that would help Terri Schiavo," Dr. Hammesfahr explained. "I know, because I had the opportunity to personally examine her, her medical records, and her X-rays."

"It is time to help Terri, instead of just warehousing her," he added. "She would have benefited from treatment years ago, but it is not too late to start now."

Seventeen other doctors have signed affidavits requesting Judge Greer allow tests to determine if Terri is actually PVS. Greer has yet to make a decision on these requests, presumably to think up some rationalized dismissal that might appear to hold water.

Someone has complained that Dr. Hammesfahr is erroneously being referred to as “Nobel Prize nominated” claiming there is no such thing since the Nobel Committee never releases the names of nominees. Such a distinction might matter, were the Nobel prize actually something to take seriously. When they select known terrorists like Yassar Arafat, or despot sympathizers like Jimmy Carter for their “peace” prize, it's hard to take them seriously on anything else.
