UPDATE! Palm Sunday, March 20, 2005. 10:12 p.m. EST --
THE DEMO(N)CRATS ARE AT IT AGAIN! i.e., Ignoring wishes of the majority.
The United States Senate has already passed a bill into law to allow Terri Schiavo's case to be heard before the Federal Court instead of in Florida. At this time, the United States House of Representatives is debating whether or not to pass a companion bill to do the same. It is unbelievable that these dastardly men and women demo(n)crats do not respect the culture of life. They revere only death and destruction -- even of a live, innocent person such as Terri.
TONIGHT (Sunday)! IF THE HOUSE DOES NOT PASS THIS BILL, I PRAY THAT PRESIDENT BUSH WILL BRAVELY COMPOSE AND SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER FOR THAT FEEDING TUBE TO BE "UNCAPPED" TO SAVE THE LIFE OF TERRI SCHIAVO. Prayer changes us and we by the Grace of God change things!
If it is Friday, the news media has an all-day feeding frenzy. Why is it that we have seen it time and again like clockwork that late-breaking news almost always come with a vengeance on Fridays?!
God bless the United States Congress for intervening in the Terri Schiavo case. She is the one who has remained unable to either express herself or defend herself, because of her state of health.
Fifteen years ago, Terri reportedly went into heart arrest due to an also reportedly lack of potassium in her body caused reportedly by her being bullemic. However, Michael Schiavo, her husband (in name only), insists they both had a conversation before she collapsed in which she stated she did not want to live in such a helpless state. At that time, Terri was reportedly in her mid-20s. She was a newly wed. How many newly weds in that age group think about wills and cemeteries and death and dying to openly express any comment on the matter? Not only that, but also, how can Michael Schiavo persist in his legal briefs to this day to maintain his wife (in name only) wanted to die rather than live on life support?
Advance directives or living wills have only had their greatest light of day during the past 10 years. That was five years *after* Terri's tragic health episode which continues to this day.
To the young'uns! You who were barely birthed when this whole Schiavo saga had its genesis. Terri's case is not the first one in which the fight has been fought to save the life of a young woman in such a state. Look up Karen Ann Quinlan. Then look up Nancy Cruzan. Doesn't the national mandate matter that this is a country of life and not death? Christians woke up some time ago. We are standing now as never before against this degenerative culture of perversion and lies. We will win because God is God and they are not! Lord have mercy on their souls.
I believe it is ironic that Michael Schiavo is adament about keeping this alleged vow to end the life of his wife (in name only), but shows no remorse about breaking his very real matrimonial vows to her, when he pledged to be with her (in pertinent part), "In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish. Til death do us part." If Schiavo considers himself still a married man, then does his having an "unmarried" family of a girlfriend and their children make him a bigamist or an ungodly, immoral, greedy person who wants what he wants and Terri's parents can forget Terri is their child to lovingly help?
I would be interested in hearing from his long-time girlfriend and their children conceived while Terri has been fighting for her life. Schiavo's girlfriend's voice has been silent throughout this whole public ordeal. Why hasn't she been interviewed? Doesn't she understand that she is seeing a preview of her life with "Mike," when he tires of her?
Michael Schiavo is as heartless as convicted murderer Scott Peterson who now sits on Death Row, as "a dead man walking," perhaps for the next 20 years. Even death row prisoners receive food and water up to the day they are executed. What is it about the arrogance of these men who go outside of their marriages and believe they have "rights" to have some say over what happens to their wife? If they feel they are man enough to step out, then they ought to be the man enough to step off! Murder is never an option. Didn't the Peterson trial prove that? Why hasn't Schiavo gotten a divorce and moved on with his life? We can be pretty sure that Terri's parents and sibblings would think better of him than having him kill their daughter and sister.
IF the killing of Terri Schiavo goes the way Michael Schiavo plans, then this U.S. government and its people ought to apologize to Dr. Kervokian and throw a party for him and his supporters, open his cell door, and set him free to go forth and kill at will (no pun intended).
Geoffrey Feiger represented Kervokian and he has come down on the side of Michael Schiavo. But his client is in jail! Apparently, they do not understand that knowingly killing live people is not an option that Americans will ever accept as the national culture of death.
