Judge Greer supported by St. Petersburg diocese law firm

Although the Roman Catholic Church opposes euthanasia, the Florida law firm representing the St. Petersburg and Venice diocese contributed to the reelection campaign of Sixth Circuit Court judge George W. Greer, the judge at the core of the Terri Schindler-Schiavo case who has religiously and judiciously supported the efforts of euthanasia advocate George Felos and his client, Michael Schiavo to end the brain damaged woman’s life by starvation.

Both of two major components of today’s culture and society, religion and politics, have melded into one in the Schiavo case with one common denominator----George W. Greer.

The Justice Coalition of Jacksonville has joined with the parents of Terri Schiavo, Mary and Robert Schindler Sr., in asking that Florida’s Gov. Jeb Bush immediately appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations of criminal wrongdoing in the case and requested that Charlie Crist, Florida’s Attorney General, immediately initiate a civil rights investigation.

Greer has ordered that Terri’s estranged husband and guardian remove her feeding tube at 1 p.m. on March 18. Although the courts are charged with finding the truth, Greer has steadfastly resisted all efforts to initiate an investigation into the alleged abuse of Terri Schiavo including the mysterious circumstances surrounding her injuries which occurred on Feb. 25, 1990, and allegations of abuse and neglect of Terri by Michael Schiavo which have allegedly been ongoing.
