Busy day for Terri's supporters

While the Florida House passed the bill intended to save Terri Schiavo's life, the Florida Senate, though, unwilling to be bothered by such trivialities as the impending torture and murder of an innocent woman, rejected it 21-16. If Terri is murdered by her husband and the infamous Judge George "kill all the cripples" Greer, her blood will also be on the hands of those 21 heartless Florida state Senators.

Florida's Second District Court of Appeals also found that they had more important things to do than bother with actually looking at the idiotic rulings of the obviously-insane Judge Greer. You have to understand, they had important stuff like golf games and dinner parties to attend to. Surely the lengthy torture and murder of an innocent, defenseless woman isn't more important than that!

Terri's parent's lawyer appealed to the US Supreme Court, but that was also turned down. Of course, when the MSM say “The Supreme Court” it doesn't always mean the actual court. In this case one, lone “justice”,  Anthony Kennedy decided that he didn't want the full Court to hear the case, and dismissed it. Kennedy is one of the Liberal stealth candidates slipped in during the Reagan administration after the Democrats threw a bawling tantrum with Robert Bork. 

From Focus on the Family:

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is “the most dangerous man in America” and the prime example of a runaway federal judiciary intent on robbing the people of their right to govern themselves, Focus on the Family founder and chairman Dr. James Dobson said...

Dobson singled out Kennedy for authoring the majority opinions in three of the most egregious examples of judicial tyranny – 1992’s Planned Parenthood v. Casey, in which the court affirmed a woman's “right” to abort her preborn child; 1995’s Romer v. Evans, which accused the people of Colorado of being “biased” for denying special rights to homosexuals; and this summer’s Lawrence v. Texas, in which the court extended the so-called right to privacy to include homosexual sodomy -- and cited European legal precedent as one of the justifications for doing so.

So you can see, Terri doesn't stand a chance of getting a fair hearing as long as Kennedy blocks the full court from hearing the case.

Terri's supporters then relied on Congress, but even there, Representatives chose to take a vacation, rather than complete the debate on the joint measure required for the bill's passage.

Terri Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, and Terri's brother Bobby walked the halls of Congress making last-minute requests to support a bill.

The House bill would remove cases like Schiavo's from state courts and allow parents or anyone else with a close relationship to a disabled patient to get a federal court hearing if a feeding tube's removal is pending.

Unbelievable.

Of course George Bush pulled out his “big guns” and released a “statement”. The leader of the most powerful nation on the planet, and all he's willing to do is release a “statement”

Not to be outdone, Dennis Hastert and Tom Delay also released a “statement”. With all these “statements” maybe the can wall paper Terri's cell...I mean room while she slowly dies of hunger and thirst.

Fortunately there are some people with the brains, backbones and...well.. another set of body parts that start with the letter “B”. The House Government Reform Committee has opened an investigation into Terri's case, and issue a subpoena for her. Since she has now been subpoenaed by Congress, interfering in her ability to testify would be considered Contempt of Congress and punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.

It's ironic that after decades of abuse by judicial tyrants, a small, defenseless woman seems to be bringing about the much needed clash between Congress and the Courts as well as the Executive branch over what the term “division of power” really means.

CNN HEADLINE NEWS,

I would like to comment on Terri Schiavo Case,
First of all I am a mother of a 6 year old and my heart goes out to the mother and the family. I pray that none of these decisions ever come that my family has to make the decision to unhook a form of life support (a vent).
I am 24 years old and have cystic fibrosis (a chronic lung disease).Although I have expressed to my husband and family that I do not wish to live on life support.(a ventilator) I would hope they would love and respect me enough to not starve me to death.
Technology and medical advancement are enhanced everyday in this country. 10 years ago I would not have lived to be 20 years old, What has happened to the believe in miracles. I live a full and happy life it might not be as good as my neighbor but whose to decide what is the line that life is not of good quality. Every creature on this planet is a creature that deserves to live the life that they have been given.

My 6 year olds dad was burned in 1998 that took his life. Although I was at the age of 18 and never been through anything like this, I believe he would not want to live on life support, and although it would have been hard, after time I would have made the decision to take him off. but I don't believe a feeding tube is considered life support.
Terri is eating just like every other American she just has to receive food in a different form.
I Thank God I'm not married to someone like Terri's husband.
God bless Terri!!

why wont he let them in to be with there daughter, he doesn't care enough to be there.

I am a mother, and would never wish on anyone to have to watch their child dehydrate and starve to death! How can anyone ok this inhumane way of dying??? Its sick! She just has to be fed in a different way than everyone else, and that justifies murdering her. Yet states can pay to keep the murderers, child abusers, and rapist alive with food and water in our prisons. I recently read a story that an infant was kept alive with the help of a feeding tube because she had brain damage due to her parents shaking her nearly to death. So does the government want her name and the name of her orphanage to pull her feeding tube as well????? I am a President Bush supporter, but why isn't he using his power to help this woman and her poor parents???
