The Passion of Terry Schiavo

I can’t believe Tom DeLay invoked the Passion week during his speech.

The parents of Terry have said that even if Terry asked to not be kept alive in this state that they still wouldn’t grant her wishes.

Rep Trent Franks (R) Arizona – “Judges who’ve lost their way.” WTF? And then he invoked the killer of that girl in Florida that he was getting 3 meals a day while Terry was not.

Terrance grabbed this gem, that I just saw on DailyKos:

By now most people who read liberal blogs are aware that George W. Bush signed a law in Texas that expressly gave hospitals the right to remove life support if the patient could not pay and there was no hope of revival, regardless of the patient’s family’s wishes. It is called the Texas Futile Care Law. Under this law, a baby was removed from life support against his mother’s wishes in Texas just this week. A 68 year old man was given a temporary reprieve by the Texas courts just yesterday.

    The leaps in logic and faulty connection making is astounded. It has been fifteen years. What happened to the Republican party that declared government should stay out of people’s lives?

    It’s the same Republican party that promised emancipated slaves voting rights, 40 acres, and a mule.

    Duplicitious.

    When the news broke out that Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube would be removed, the nation was in a frenzy to save her life. People began crowding the streets around her Florida hospital, others formed picket lines. The news of Terri Schiavo struck the nation, and within two days, the entire world was informed. The country came together in hope that Terri’s life could be spared. Michael Schiavo, Terri’s husband, ordered the feeding tube be removed 15 years after her illness. Millions watched and waited as the helpless and tortured woman began dehydrating for nearly two weeks. The picket lines became bigger as the days slowly passed. President Bush was contacted thousands of times, but refused to get in the middle of things. When there was no hope for our president, Governor Bush was called in. Like his brother, he stated that he did not want to interfere with a personal matter. After 12 days without food or water, the family decided to go to the supreme court. The case was thrown out, and the hope was all gone. The nation was stunned as Terri Schiavo lived the 13 days without food or water. On March 31st, 2005, Terri Schiavo was declared dead at 9:02 am. People were enraged at President Bush, the congress, and worst of all, Michael Schiavo for letting a harmless woman die in such a grueling matter.
    Terri Schiavo had a life worth living, and the government killed her.This just tells you how “involved” President Dumbass Bush is!
