The good news, if it can be called good news, is that Congress finally passed a bill that MAY help Terri Schiavo. The president signed it.
The bad news is that there are no guarantees and that this increasingly sick nation would even question Terri's right to live:
"It gives Terri Schiavo another chance," Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said after the late-afternoon voice vote in a near-empty Senate chamber. "It guarantees a process to help Terri, but does not guarantee a particular outcome."The House passed the bill on a 203-58 vote early Monday after calling lawmakers back for an emergency Sunday session for debate that stretched past midnight.
The measured [sic] was backed by 156 Republicans to 5 who voted against it and 71 who did not vote; 47 Democrats voted in favor, 53 against and 102 did not vote. The lone independent in the 435 member house did not vote.That means that the 5 Republicans and the 53 Democrats who voted against it ought to be voted out of office, not to mention the 71 Republicans, the 102 Democrats and the lone Independent who didn't bother to show up or vote. As far as I'm concerned, they are all would-be accomplices in Terri's murder. They shouldn't just be voted out of office; by rights they ought to be publicly flogged and ridden out of town on a rail.
Just two of the worst offenders mentioned in the article are Rep. Jim Davis, D-Fla and Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass. But as you can clearly see from the figures given above regarding the vote, those two despicable monstrosities are not alone. I'll do my best to get a list of every single one of them that voted against the bill and post it on this blog.
Please continue to pray for Terri Schindler-Schiavo and her family. Don't even suggest to me that Michael Schiavo, her adulterous "husband" and would-be murderer, qualifies as "family." He has a "family" with his mistress and their illegitimate progeny.
It is a sign of our times and a sign of an increasingly depraved nation that the MSM portrayed Michael Schiavo as a victim in all of this and to this day continues to print outright lies about Terri's condition. All too many, particulary of the leftwing persuasion, have bought those lies and in turn propagated them far and wide without shame or restraint.
It is very late at night (or early morning) and that's enough for now. But this subject is far from over.
You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
