Fighting for Dear Life
By David Gibbs
"The first duty of government is the protection of life, not its destruction. The chief purpose of government is to protect life. Abandon that and you have abandoned all." - Thomas Jefferson
David Gibbs took a leap of faith in September 2003, when Bob and Mary Schindler, Terri Schiavo's parents, asked him to become the lead attorney in their frantic fight to save their daughter's life. Taking the case pro bono, Gibbs embarked on a compelling journey that would forever change his life. He watched Terri fade away in those last days, and was with Mary, Terri's mother, the last time she saw Terri alive. Now David Gibbs gives an insider's account of the story that tore the heart out of a nation and marked a watershed moment in America's judicial history. Gibbs shares as-yet undisclosed truths about the trial and error surrounding Terri's death, why it should never have happened and why it matters so critically for us as we grapple with the value of life and the question of who decides.
Here's what they are saying about "Fighting for Dear Life":
"David Gibbs argues convincingly that life is a precious gift from God that must be protected." - Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida
"Many thanks to David Gibbs for providing us with a powerful insider's look into the inhumane, court-ordered injustice perpetrated against Terri Schiavo. No reader of this book will be able to remain unconcerned about the chilling precedent her case sets and its implications for the future. It's a moving and compelling reminder of why we need to defend those who cannot speak for themselves and uphold the sanctity of all human life!” - Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family
"The struggle over life and death...as seen through a lawyer's eyes. Regardless of where you stand on the life and death of Terri Schindler Schiavo, the story of both the legal and human struggle she represents remains one to which we should all listen." - Nancy A. Grace, host of CNN's "Headline News" and Court TV's "Nancy Grace: Closing Arguments"
"Fighting for Dear Life" proclaims the clear message that we long for the world to hear. David fought courageously to save Terri's life and loved our family during some of the darkest hours of our lives. We will forever be grateful." - Bob and Mary Schindler, parents of Terri Schiavo
David Gibbs III is the founder of the Christian Law Association and wrote this book from the heart. Gibbs says:
"I make no apology that, from my perspective, what happened to Terri was wrong. Very wrong. Maybe you agree. Then again, maybe you disagree, or the jury is still out in your mind. I believe if you will join me as I present my case, you will come to understand three things: Why I fought for Terri, Why I'd do it again, and why I'd fight for you, too."
