Crunch Time for Terri
On the legislative front, Blogs for Terri also has a post on what's happening with the Florida law.
Check out this post from Wittenberg Gate on Kate Adamson. She used to be in a full coma and her husband was advised to pull the plug -- now she is a fully functioning mother of two.
Can you please explain to me why this knucklehead, dare I say moonbat, of a judge would deny the opportunity for someone to even try and feed Terri by mouth (fourth item under updates at press time)after the feeding tube is removed.
Finally, there is this this piece by Al Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Seminary. It's really about the "Groningen Protocol," but as he begins:
Advocates for euthanasia routinely chide opponents that "slippery slope" arguments are fallacious and irrelevant. A decision to allow euthanasia in some cases, they say, does not in fact open the door for the killing of yet others. Tragically, however, the "slippery slope" argument is neither fallacious nor irrelevant, as recent developments in the Netherlands have made graphically clear. Once doctors are allowed to choose death over life, the resulting Culture of Death will inevitably discount human life in other contexts as well.Isn't Terri's situation one of the biggest pieces of evidence for that contention you have ever seen?
Here's your action items:
- Go to Terri's Fight(graphic in blogroll - the link works even if the graphic is missing) and donate
- Contact your Federal Representative and ask him/her to move along the bill that has been introduced to save Terri's life. Speed is of the essence. Act Now.
- Contact your Senators and do the same.
- Contact legislators in Florida and urge the passage of HB701, also designed to save Terri's life.
