Schindler family to visit Kansas woman

From Life News.com

Sarah Scantlin was unable to speak after an automobile accident ... leaving her in a coma. Though doctors believed her brain was injured so badly in the accident that should would never be able to talk again and spend her life in a vegetative state, Scantlin began speaking a week ago.

...."She's 100 percent Sarah again. The family is back together, and it's just simply a joyous situation," her father, Jim Scantlin, told CNN. ....Now, Scantlin is forming words, counting, and remembering people and places.

....Robert Schindler, Terri's Schiavo's father, says he hopes the courts will see this "miracle" and think of Terri.

"In light of the miraculous awakening of Miss Sarah Scantlin in Kansas and the success of the new brainwave test reported ... this week, my daughter deserves to have this test before she is starved to death by judicial decree," Schindler said.

....The Schindlers say videotape shown on CNN of Sarah interacting with her parents prior to speaking is remarkably similar to videos of Terri interacting her family.

....Terri's parents are traveling to Kansas to meet with Sarah and her family.

There is definitely hope should the parents get custody. Here is a very direct proposition to that effect.

Please give it your consideration.

The problem with this approach is that it doesn't allow Michael Schiavo to save face. If he takes the money and runs, he's admitting that he was only after the money all along. I don't think he'll do it.
