Download Audio MP3 | 00:28:00

Jojo RubaJosh interviews Jojo Ruba, former staff member of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform and Executive Director of Faith Beyond Belief.

After talking about the pro-life presentations that have been protested and censored by Canadian pro-choice activists, Jojo answers the 9-question Life Report Questionnaire that has been answered by many other pro-life leaders in the past. I altered it a little for this interview, taking out the questions on stem cell research and euthanasia to focus more on the graphic pictures debate and how pro-lifers should treat pro-choice people.

I love this quote from Jojo, in regards to what he does when he’s talking to a pro-choice person: “I say a little prayer, and the prayer is this: ‘Father, show me how I can love this person today.’”

Bobby Schindler on Terri Schiavo’s Story & End of Life Issues

Download Audio MP3 | 00:28:00

We’ve got an unaired episode that was never published on YouTube for technical reasons that we recently resolved. Josh Brahm and Liz Goddard interview Bobby Schindler, the Executive Director of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network which works to protect the lives of the medically vulnerable and disabled from the threat of euthanasia.

Questions:

  1. Can you give us a brief overview of your sister Terri’s story?
  2. Did Michael wait 30-45 minutes after Terri’s collapse before calling 911?
  3. Can you define “persistent vegetative state” for us, and whether you believe Terri was in a persistent vegetative state?
  4. Is there an objective definition of PVS?
  5. Did Terri fit that medical criteria for PVS?
  6. What progress did Terri show in the first two years of rehab before Michael took her off of rehab?
  7. What happened to the trust fund that was earmarked for Terri’s therapy?
  8. Why do you think that Michael refused to divorce Terri after moving in with Jody Centonze?
  9. What is it that the medical professionals believed whom Judge Greer refused to allow to testify?
  10. Is there anyway Terri could have survived without the feeding tube?
  11. Do you know anything about recent research to determine the extent of someones brain injury?
  12. Do you have any how often people are starved to death who are not in a PVS state?
  13. What is the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network doing now, six years later?
  14. What do you believe is still the number one misconception about Terri?
  15. What kind of legislation could be passed that would prevent Terri’s situation happening again?
  16. How will the new healthcare law impact people with situations similar to Terri’s?
  17. Would you be in favor of legislation that would sever spousal rights on the behalf of an incapacitated person in the event where there’s a clear conflict of interest, such as when the spouse acting as guardian begins a new relationship?
  18. What would you say to people who try to frame Terri’s situation as a “right-to-die issue?”
  19. So the clear distinction for you is that food and water is basic care and that ventilators and respirators are medical care that in some cases can be stopped?
