The latest on Terri Schiavo

Heroic Congressmen are trying to rush through the federal legislation that could save Terri Schiavo's life. The bill already has115 co-sponsors. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist wants to bring the bill to the floor of the Senate this week for a vote without having it go through a Senate committee. But House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner, of Wisconsin, has scheduled a hearing for Weldon's bill for Wednesday. Sensenbrenner's phone number is (262) 784-1111, and his email address is sensenbrenner@mail.house.gov. Ask him if he really thinks an innocent life is worth the petty politics of demanding the bill go through his committee. Wisconsin residence will have a much greater impact calling him or even visiting his office in Brookfield at 120 Bishops Way, Room 154.

Meanwhile in Florida, a house and a senate bill are heading to the full Florida House and Senate today after clearing their final committee hurdles in both chambers

The house bill would prevent doctors or legal guardians from allowing a person in a persistent vegetative state to die by withholding food or water, if the patient had not previously issued an advance directive authorizing it to be withheld. The senate bill differs only in that it would apply only if family members disagree. The differences would be debated today, and a single bill voted on. It's expected that Florida governor Jeb Bush will sign the legislation.

Florida DCF is also appealing Judge Greer's decision to ignore their investigation, and execute Terri anyway.

For those of you with strong stomachs, ABC's Nightline aired an interview with Terri's pretend husband Michael “When is that bitch gonna die” Schiavo, and allowed him to lie his fool head off without challenging him once. Absolutely sickening.
