WASHINGTON – Before Katrina, there was Terri. Before the death of Pope John Paul II and the naming of Pope Benedict XVI, there was Terri. Before the evacuation of the Gaza Strip, there was Terri.

Terri Schindler Schiavo’s court-ordered dehydration death captivated the attention of the world’s media in March of this year.

But long before the dramatic climax of congressional acts, federal court decisions, presidential signatures, candlelight vigils, parental pleas and endless debates on radio and television – nearly three years before, in fact – WND news editor Diana Lynne was covering the story.

Finally, the woman who broke Terri’s story to the world gets to tell the whole story in a book released by WND Books.

In “Terri’s Story: The Court-Ordered Death of an American Woman,” Lynne, a long-time WND staffer, utilizes her interviews with Michael Schiavo, his family members and right-to-die activists as well as interviews with the Schindler family and the legal team that represented them.

“This is not a quickie, exploitation book attempting to capitalize on the worldwide publicity ultimately generated by Terri’s story,” explained Joseph Farah, founder of WND Books and WorldNetDaily. “This is the powerful, insightful and definitive story, told by a dedicated and hard-working journalist who made it her business, after nearly three years of covering this life-and-death conflict, to bring it to the attention of the national and international media.”

“‘Terri’s Story’ by Diana Lynne is the most accurate, and therefore,
indispensable account of a crucial case that could affect many Americans in
the future,” declared Nat Hentoff, columnist for the Village Voice, United
Media Syndicate and the Washington Times.

And while Terri may be gone, her legacy lives on. The battle that raged around her life and death continues for other incapacitated people and their families.
