For Right to Life

Daily News

The family of Terri Schiavo, along with the Priests for Life organization, has established the observance of "Terri's Day" each March 31, the anniversary of her death by deliberate dehydration.


Bobby Schindler, Terri's brother, said, "This third anniversary should be an occasion for all of us to both remember the injustice done to Terri, and reach out to others with prayer and concrete action when they need the kind of help Terri needed."

The IFRL is the largest grassroots pro-life organization in Illinois. A non-profit organization, that serves as the state coordinating body for local pro-life chapters representing thousands of Illinois citizens working to restore respect for all human life in our society. The IFRL is composed of people of different political persuasions, various faiths and diverse economic, social and ethnic backgrounds. Since 1973 the Illinois Federation for Right to Life has been working to end abortion and restore legal protection to those members of the human family who are threatened by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. Diverse though we are, we hold one common belief - that every human being has an inalienable right to life that is precious and must be protected. IFRL is dedicated to restoring the right to life to the unborn, and protection for the disabled and the elderly.   Click here to learn more about the IFRL.

Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation and Priests for Life Call for 'Terri's Day' Observance

Suzanne Vitadamo, Terri's sister, added, "Our family continues to be consoled and uplifted by the many ways in which people honor my sister, learn from her story, and grow in compassion for all the disabled."


Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, "Terri's death was not the end of her fight. It was the beginning of a new chapter in the pro-life movement. I call upon all those who were moved by Terri's death to continue their courageous activism in the cause of life, and never to be silent."


Priests for Life and the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation encourage churches, families, organizations and individuals to observe Terri's Day with prayers, memorial services, educational activities and community outreach. Project ideas and prayer resources can be found at
