Terri's Bill Passes Congress

| 1 Comment

At 12:32 this morning .... here is the roll call. (update: the text of the bill can be found here)

The Miami Herald Reports,

President Bush stood ready at the White House, lawyers stood ready at a Florida courthouse and nurses stood ready at Terri Schiavo's bedside as Congress early today approved a bill that could prolong her life.

The climactic vote ended in the House of Representatives at 12:32 a.m., and the measure was swiftly sent to Bush, who said he would sign it.

Update:

FoxNews has more coverage:

"As millions of Americans observe the beginning of Holy Week this Palm Sunday we are reminded that every life has purpose and none is without meaning," said House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., a leader in crafting the bill.
Interestingly, the measure was backed by 156 Republicans to 5 who voted against it and 71 who did not vote; 47 Democrats voted in favor, 53 against and 102 did not vote. The lone independent in the 435 member house did not vote.

David Gibbs III, the attorney for the Schindlers, said that his office has been in contact with the Federal District Court in Tampa and he is anticipating sending a filing in the middle of the night. A computer program randomly generates the presiding judge, who will be delivered the request for an injunction immediately.

I think it's a damn shame that Terri, has become a "political issue"! I pray each night that God will put an end to this, so Terri may go in peace and be out of this "turmoil". Being a mother myself, I understand the pain her parents are going thru, but I don't understand, why would you put your child on public display? And why weren't the alledged abusive issues brought up before this happened to her? Would they really want this for themselves?
