The brother of the late Terri Schiavo will be in Wausau today.

Bobby Schindler will present a documentary about his sister and he'll express his opposition to nationalized health care.


Terri Schiavo was the subject of an intense political and legal battle after she collapsed in Florida in 1990, and fell into a persistent vegetative state.

She did not have an advance directive for her care and her husband argued that she didn't want to be kept alive in that condition while her family demanded that she get her feedings.

Terri Schiavo died in March of 2005, almost two weeks after her feeding tube was removed.

The courts had repeatedly blocked the efforts of the Schiavo family, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former President George W. Bush and Congress to resume the feedings.

The case sparked a national effort to encourage people to declare their health care wishes before they're no longer able to do so.
