Florida House votes to save Terri Schiavo
Six days after Terri Schindler-Schiavo’s feeding tube was removed on court order – sentencing her to a slow and painful death – the Florida House of Representatives, influenced by a massive and sustained outpouring of support for the 39-year-old brain-disabled woman, voted yesterday to give Gov. Jeb Bush the power to order Terri’s feeding tube re-inserted.
Legislation H35-E, known as Terri’s Bill, passed House on a 68-23 vote at approximately 10:15 p.m. Eastern.
However, the Senate version, S 0012-E, will be debated by the state Senate at 8 a.m today…
In the meantime, poor Terri is feeling pain from the starvation and dehydration, and people who have seen her say she is beginning to fade, and they fear she can’t hold out much longer. She is reported to be alert still and vocalizing, but her face is thinner and her skin is becoming drawn, showing the effects of five days of dehydration.
Michael Schiavo, Florida Supreme Court Judge Greer, Right-To-Die advocate George Felos – you’re all on the road to hell.
