David Gibbs III with Paul Hastings of Compelled - Episode 21
All life is precious.
Terri Schiavo was caught up in a legal battle that began when I was born in 1990, and ended in 2005.
Many of you will remember this case, but the conversation we share with your today is an in depth overview of the case with her attorney, David Gibbs.
Texas is on the frontlines of the battle of valuing life until the end. We saw this recent with a patient in a Texas Hospital who had her doctors try to end her life without her permission. We saw the political battle of this issue with the passage of SB 2089 out of the Senate, and it’s subsequent death in the Texas House. This legislation would have gone a long way in giving patients more control over their care at the end of their life.
This is an issue our show will be talking about throughout the next year, and this conversation is an incredible start to that discussion.
