WASHINGTON, March 28 - The parents of Terri Schiavo have authorized a
conservative direct-mailing firm to sell a list of their financial
supporters, making it likely that thousands of strangers moved by her
plight will receive a steady stream of solicitations from
anti-abortion and conservative groups.

"These compassionate pro-lifers donated toward Bob Schindler's legal
battle to keep Terri's estranged husband from removing the feeding
tube from Terri," says a description of the list on the Web site of
the firm, Response Unlimited, which is asking $150 a month for 6,000
names and $500 a month for 4,000 e-mail addresses of people who
responded last month to an e-mail plea from Ms. Schiavo's father.
"These individuals are passionate about the way they value human
life, adamantly oppose euthanasia and are pro-life in every sense of
the word!"

Privacy experts said the sale of the list was legal and even
predictable, if ghoulish.
