Call for Executive Action
Now it's the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals that is dawdling.
Attention is turning to what the Executive Branches of Florida and the U.S. can do to enforce EXISTING LAW to protect Terri. Here is an alert from Defend Life to contact both President Bush and Governor Bush, including references to U.S. and Florida law:
Is anyone surprised that a Clinton appointee has refused to provide relief to Terri despite the fact she is NOT in PVS? (It's immoral to kill a PVS patient as well, but that is another question.) FLORIDA LAW SAYS IT IS ILLEGAL TO USE ANY ACT OR OMISSION TO END LIFE!
The executive branch has ALWAYS been the key in this case, not the runaway activist judiciary. The governor or the president can still save Terri. They don't want to take the political heat. The governor can send in the National Guard. The president can send in the feds. It was done for integration, it surely can be done for Terri.
Here are affidavits from 2 nurses who took care of Terri Schaivo in the mid 1990's. Heidi Law and Carla Sauer Iyer. Terri is NOT in PVS.
CALL, FAX AND EMAIL THE GOVERNOR & PRESIDENT AND DEMAND THAT THEY DO THEIR JOB AND ENFORCE EXISTING FLORIDA AND FEDERAL LAW
Florida Law: 765.309 Mercy killing or euthanasia not authorized;(1) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to condone, authorize, or approve mercy killing or euthanasia, or to permit any affirmative or deliberate act or omission to end life other than to permit the natural process of dying.
Governor Jeb Bush
Title 28 35.130(e)(2) Nothing in the Act or this part authorizes the representative or guardian of an individual with a disability to decline food, water, medical treatment, or medical services for that individual.
PLEASE FORWARD PLEASE FORWARD PLEASE FORWARD
Here is my post from Saturday urging consideration of this course of action.
