WASHINGTON, March 23 /Christian Wire Service/ -- The 11th Hour Coalition to Save Terri Schiavo's Life will hold simultaneous press conferences -- Wednesday, March 23 -- at 12 noon in Washington, D.C., and Tallahassee, Fla.
This ad hoc partnership of religious and political organizations -- which will gather in front of the White House and the Florida governor's mansion -- will call on President George W. Bush and Gov. Jeb Bush to use their executive powers to protect Terri Schiavo from starvation.
"There are two people in the United States who can save Terri Schiavo's life right now. The president of the United States and the governor of Florida have the authority to use the police services at their disposal to take Terri into protective custody, restore her food and hydration, and arrest anyone who would interfere," said Dr. Paul Schenck, executive director of the National Pro-Life Action Center on Capitol Hill. "For the sake of Terri's life, we cannot afford to wait while the courts dither over jurisdiction."

This is her only chance, albeit slim, for survival.
Actually if we hit the streets like they did in Lebanon we could rescue her.
Police powers? Not going to happen.
be nice if there were some others who came from somewhere besides the "christian right."
BUMP BUMP BUMP
If I could get to one of those places by noon, I would be there for support.
I'm all for saving Terri, but this is not a police state.
Pinging my General Interest and Florida lists here.
Coalition Calls Upon Bush to Save
Schiavo's Life by Using Police Powers
Please let me know if you want ON or OFF my General Interest ping list!. . .don't be shy.
Does anyone know if Bush could issue an Executive Order to save Terri?
Seeing as Clinton used Federal Agents to take Elian Gonzalez into protective custody before sending him back to Cuba, I don't see any reason why they can't use Federal Agents to take Terri into custody to prevent her murder.
I would hope so.... Many are blinded by their emotions...
I am all for saving Terri, but this is damn scary. Talk about a slippery slope.
I think the same thing should be done at abortion mills - Federal Marshalls to stop the slaughter.
"On what basis would either of them do this? "
On the basis that the Governor of a State or the President of the United States has a duty to protect innocent life.
On the basis that the power of the courts does not supercede the power of the other branches of government.
The Congress and President have concurred in legislation calling for a new look at the facts in the case, anticipating an injunction to replace the feeding tube until the facts could be heard. The courts have refused.
How will the MSM play it? How did they play Waco? Or Elian Gonzales? This would certainly be a milder use of police power than either of those, and others of the Clintonista regime . . .
