The opposite of PROgress...

Fortunately people have not been sitting on their hands thinking there's nothing they can do. I've been calling local elected officials, and will keep doing so until we have firm laws in place to prevent such idiocy in my state.,

Congress is also looking into laws to protect the disabled.

The Senate Health Committee will hold a hearing on April 6 with neurology and palliative care experts on the issue of health care provided to non-ambulatory people.

This hearing replaces one originally scheduled for Monday in which Terri Schiavo and her husband were asked to appear before the panel in Washington in an unsuccessful attempt to prevent caretakers from removing the woman's feeding tubes.

The House Government Reform Committee also plans to hold hearings at some time on the larger issues raised by the Schiavo case such as the long-term options available to the disabled, said David Marin, spokesman for committee chairman Tom Davis, R-Va.

Remember, these are the same dimwits that issued meaningless subpoena's and useless laws while grandstanding for votes, pretending they were doing something. Hold their feet to the fire. Don't let them get away with more idiotic laws that do the opposite of what the claim they do.
