Bobby Schindler is President of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network and Associate Scholar at the Charlotte Lozier Institute. Bobby advocates for the medically vulnerable in honor of Terri Schiavo, his sister. Bobby understands the struggles to defend life and has been a relentless fighter for the cause.
Bobby’s life took a dramatic and unexpected turn when his older sister, Terri, suddenly collapsed and was left with a profound brain injury. When Terri’s estranged husband sought court permission to starve and dehydrate her to death, Bobby was propelled into a life he’d never imagined.
He spoke in defense of his sister on numerous national television and radio programs including Hannity & Colmes, Larry King Live, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Glenn Beck Program, Good Morning America, The Early Show, The Today Show, Dateline NBC, The 700 Club, EWTN, and others. Bobby co-authored the book A Life That Matters: The Legacy of Terri Schiavo as a resource for those seeking to understand an accurate account of Terri’s fight.
A full-time advocate, speaker, and writer, Bobby, and the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network have been instrumental in providing resources and support to more than 2,700 patients, and families at risk of euthanasia assisted suicide, and denial-of-care situations from physicians, hospitals, insurance companies, and others.
Bobby is a member of the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities, and his writings have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, TIME, The Linacre Quarterly, National Review, Human Life Review, The Washington Times, and others.
Bobby holds an M.S. in Bioethics from the University of Mary and a Certificate in Health Care Ethics from the National Catholic Bioethics Center, as well as degrees from LaSalle University and Florida State University. He lives in Cincinnati with Kristina, his wife, and a happy family of nine, where he serves on the Cincinnati Right to Life board of directors.
