Judge Denies Life For Terri Schiavo

From FOXNews:
A federal judge early Tuesday morning refused to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, leaving the fate of the severely brain-damaged Florida woman unresolved.

U.S. District Judge James Whittemore (search) said the 41-year-old woman's parents had not established a "substantial likelihood of success" at trial on the merits of their arguments.

Schiavo's tube was removed Friday after the appeals of her parents, Bob and Mary Schindler (search), to keep the tube in failed in state court. Tuesday marked the fourth day without her feeding tube.

Rex Sparklin, an attorney with the law firm representing the Schindlers, said lawyers were immediately appealing to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to "save Terri's life."
DO NOT DESPAIR -- WHERE THERE IS LIFE THERE IS HOPE.The Florida Legislature could still act as could the 11th Circuit. Lobby the Florida Legislature hard. Here are the numbers.

I have hesitated saying this, but I have to now -- I have wondered all along if The Schindlers/Terri had the best counsel. This was clearly an error on counsel's part, the case should have been prepared long before Congress passed the law, they had plenty of time in this Nexus/Lexus age to put together a case. IF any of the allegations regarding Michael's behavior are even remotely true, they have a case.

It's too late to substitute counsel at this point, but it's not too late to help existing counsel. You a lawyer? You have an idea? Get on the horn and help. Prepare a brief and sent it to them for review.

Romans 8:31-39
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God {is} for us, who {is} against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Just as it is written, "For Thy sake we are being put to death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered." 37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
