UPDATE 2, Saturday: I feel bad that the "good news" post from early yesterday is still on the aggregator at Blogs for Terri, because I worry that people may come here thinking there's some current good news, but unfortunately, that's not the case.
Additional update, Sunday: The news only gets worse, tragically. Please read current posts, above. It boggles my mind that the subpoenas issued on Friday, which were the "good news" I wrote about on this original post, have been completely ignored and violated by Judge Greer and the hospice. This is utterly shameful behavior! He is a judicial tyrant who needs to be impeached.
Please, read today's posts above, and keep checking in with Blogs for Terri and Terri's Fight to do what you can to help Terri. Where there's life, there's hope, and I am hopeful that we will be able to defeat the Culture of Death and win a victory for Terri and her parents. Keep praying.
UPDATE (Friday afternoon): Taking the unusual step of updating at the top, because this post is now outdated, and yet people are still being directed here from the Pro-Life Blogs aggregator. Turns out I spoke too soon about "good news".
Please read this post for the latest news.
Also, be sure to check Drudge, Blogs for Terri, and Hyscience for more.
There are a slew of comments on this post, some from those who are pro-euthanasia, and pro-death for Terri.
"Created", below, claims that she will not suffer. But if you are starved to death, while your body is still actively living and not in the natural dying process (as is the case for Terri) it definitely would be painful. In addition, Michael Schaivo hasn't done one thing for Terri's care over the past decade; he certainly isn't going to make sure she's comfortable now.
Original post below:
In fact, this seems to me it might be the almost miraculous intervention we've been praying for. At the very least, Michael Schaivo and George Felos can't begin starving her today, and these events provide a window of opportunity for the future.
From Blogs for Terri this morning:
March 18, 2005And shortly after that:
Subpoenas on Their Way!
Fox News is reporting that House Government Reform Committee lawyers are on their way to Florida to deliver subpoenas to Michael Schiavo, to the Schindlers, (Terri's parents), and to two doctors and the hospice administrator where she now lives. The subpoenas call these people, and Terri, as witnesses and also require that her feeding and hydration not be suspended until they can investigate the case. It is very significant that Terri is named as a witness, because there are laws to protect federal witnesses.
Also, the House and the Senate have delayed their Easter recess to take up these issues.
Press Release, MARCH 18, 2005, 11:45 AMKeep praying.
THE HOSPICE HAS JUST NOW BEEN SERVED WITH FEDERAL SUBPOENAS ASKING THEM TO NOT REMOVE FOOD AND FLUIDS FROM TERRI SCHINDLER - SCHIAVO.
A LETTER FROM CONGRESS HAS ALSO BEEN ISSUED TO BOTH MICHAEL AND TERRI FOR THEM BOTH TO APPEAR ON MARCH 28, 2005 AT 10:00 AM FOR AN INVESTIGATION TO TAKE PLACE INTO NON-AMBULATORY CARE.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO CALL YOUR SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN AND TELL THEM TO PASS THE INCAPACITATED BILL FOR TERRI.
IT IS IMPERATIVE NOT TO LET THE HEAT OFF OF YOUR SENATORS. THEY MUST BE CALLED EVERY HOUR ON THE HOUR IF POSSIBLE. TERRI IS NOT OUT OF DANGER YET. WE MUST NOT LET UP ON THE SENATORS UNTIL THIS BILL HAS BEEN PASSED. THIS WILL BE THE ONLY WAY WE CAN PROTECT TERRI.
