Book for Speaking

Bobby Schindler advocates for the medically vulnerable in honor of Terri Schiavo, his sister. He speaks internationally, and can be booked through AmbassadorCMG BookingCatholic Speakers Association, or Students for Life.

Topics

  • Terri Schiavo: A Life That Matters— Introducing audiences to Terri Schiavo, her family’s fight for her right to life, the central role of the media in shaping public opinion, and the lasting impact of her public fight. Appropriate for any audience.
  • Caring for Disabled and Medically Vulnerable Loved Ones— Teaching audiences how to be an heroic advocate for disabled and medically vulnerable loved ones, with a focus on Advanced Directives, medical power-of-attorney rights, and stories of hope and recovery. Appropriate for any audience, but particularly for Christians and families.
  • Catholic Health Care: Ordinary v. Extraordinary Care— An introduction to the distinctions between ordinary and extraordinary care, using Terri Schiavo and other prominent persons to demonstrate how to respect human dignity without artificially sustaining life past its natural conclusion. Appropriate for any audience, but particularly for Catholics in churches and schools.
  • The Basic Right to Food and Water— Exposing audiences to the incredible fact that food and water is regulated by healthcare providers and considered “medical treatment” when delivered by feeding tube. This is a treatment relied upon by millions of Americans annually, and countless Americans die each year from the fatal withdraw of basic food and water. Yet, hope exists to change how healthcare providers regulate access to this basic and ordinary care. Appropriate for any audience, but particularly for political audiences and pro-life advocates.
  • Considering Human Dignity— Introducing audiences to the basics of human dignity, medical ethics, and proper bioethical perspectives on delivering basic and ordinary care including the issues of “personhood” theory, “futile care” rulings, and the “quality of life” diagnosis. Appropriate for any audience, but particularly young people and medical/law students.
