Join the Terri Jello Brigade Today!!!

Could you do without food and water for five days?

DAY 5

THE STATE OF FLORIDA, U.S.A.
IS EXECUTING TERRI SCHINDLER-SHIAVRO
BY STARVATION


(See http://terrisfight.org )

At 2 P.M. on October 15, the State of Florida surgically removed the feeding tube from a conscious and otherwise alert human being. Her name is Terri Schiavo. Her unfaithful husband, acting as her legal 'guardian' demanded and received a court directive to end Terri's life through the intentional deprivation of food and water - staving her to death.

The entire establishment structure in Florida from the governor to the local sheriff, from newspapers and television to organized religion, have actively and passively supported this barbaric torture to end the life of a woman whose only 'fault' is she can not speak in her own behalf.

"....In Florida, these matters are entrusted to the system that our elected officials established to protect incapacitated adults....We must respect that system" -- Jeb Bush, Governor

A Florida sanctioned murder by starvation of a woman who has committed no crime has been ongoing for five days!!!

Could you do without food and water for five days?

Join the Terri Jello Brigade Today!!!

Where's the Pope?

Terri is a Roman Catholic, and the pope receives world-wide attention when he stands in defense of murdering criminals. Terri is not a murdering criminal. Terri has committed no crime. Terri is a Roman Catholic.

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR YOUR HIGHLY UNUSUAL SILENCE FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS POPE JOHN PAUL II?

The State of Florida is today denying Terri Holy Communion as she lies on her deathbed!!!
SPEAK UP JOHN PAUL - THIS IS YOUR DUTY!!!

YOUR DUTY!!!!

YOUR SILENCE IS ENDORSING THE BARBARIC EXECUTION BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT OF AN INNOCENT ROMAN CATHOLIC WOMAN CONVICTED OF NO CRIME?
WOULD YOU BE SILENT IF THE PERSON WAS NOT TERRI SCHIAVO BUT RATHER MOTHER TERESA?
IS TERRI'S SOUL LESS EQUAL TO THAT OF MOTHER TERESA IN GOD'S EYES?

FOR FIVE YEARS YOU HAVE DENIED THE TRUTH OF TERRI SCHIAVO'S TORTURE BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT. YOUR FAILURE TO ACT HAS THE POTENTIAL OF STAINING THE LEGACY YOU HAVE CAREFULLY CONSTRUCTED AT CREATE EXPENSE TO ALL AROUND YOU.
WHAT IS THE REAL REASON FOR YOUR FIVE YEARS OF SILENCE POPE JOHN PAUL II?

THE LITMUS TEST

"The litmus test is whether or not a person can bring a spoon to their mouth." -- Attorney George Felos, August 2001, commenting on the standard that should apply in deciding to terminate life in nursing homes, rehab and daycare centers in America.

New Jersey lawyer Christopher A. Ferrara argues that Michael Schiavo has violated Terri's rights under federal laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, by withholding medical treatment and refusing to allow her to fed by mouth.

"(The Schindlers) are about to lose their daughter because no one wants to put a teaspoon of Jello to her mouth," Ferrara said. "It's insane."

Join the Terri Schindler-Shiavro Jello Brigade Today !!!

Go to the store.
Buy a 99cent box of Jello.
Place it in an envelope and address it to :

No More Wiggle Room - Jeb Bush
Governor, State of Florida
400 S. Monroe Street
The Capitol
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0001
Save Terri Schindler-Shiavro's Life Today!!!

What Next?

After you deposit your mailing to Governor Bush, pray fervently for a heavenly transition for Terri, and be certain to pass this entire email on to everyone you know.

Should Terri succumb to the governments extreme termination of her life, continue to urge your friends to mail the jello to the governor. It will serve to underline our anger over government's murder of the innocent because they simply have no further value to the state.

Thank you for doing what you could to help an American Citizen who needed you!!!

Florida will not allow Terri to receive her death bed religious rites..... Terri Schiavo denied Last Rites

May Jeb be made to rid his office of a million of the packages. I have a mailing list of over 6,000 addresses of like minded men and women I've gathered since 1982, when I first plugged in my first computer. I've spent Friday, Saturday and likely most of today sending them the message at the top of this tread. Of course, some have changed their url's, but an overwhelming number are getting through.

Seems like a package of jello will be more receptive than a threat, but it carries the same message : Change the way your running this country. We're watching you, and we don't like the way you're doing business in our name.

Uh huh. THis is really going to help the good guys in government--getting lots and lots of powder mailed to them, jamming up the mailrooms. Hello, do you remember anthrax?

This is a problem that must be fixed at the legislative level. If there are laws that say that this may not be done, then the governors would have power to act when the court exceeds its moral and legal authority. The problem here is not that Jeb Bush doesn't know the right thing to do. The problem is that he cannot act because every level of court that has seen this has either ruled to support Greer's ruling or has refused to hear it. He has no legal remedy at hand. Sending him jello isn't going to change it. It'll make life harder for the people who have to sort the wheat from the chaff in the mailroom.

Save your ninety-nine cents...or better yet, spend it on stamps and send letters to your legislative representatives at the state and federal letter. If you don't know that your state forbids withholding nutrition and water from non-terminal patients, then you are certainly wasting your time and tax dollars when you mail a box of jello.

Jello wouldn't save Terri now. Legislation to forbid this kind of murder will save the next person to be in this position. (And there are probably dozens across the country whose names we do not know. My husband's grandmother was one of them--killed by having her IV turned off because she wasn't dying fast enough to suit the nursing home staff.)

Because you've taken it upon yourself to write from a position of absolute ignorance in this matter, and you are clearly unable to communicate in contemporary English, I've decided writing to you would be a waste of time.

A woman is being starved to death by government, and you would prefer to run-off-at-the-mouth oblivious to the fact that the state of Florida says Terri must die because she allegedly cannot accept nourishment orally.

Jello was their operative word.

Jeb has repeatedly supported the Florida 'system', and his refusal his to stop this barbaric murder is an abomination of the lowest order. He is a disgrace to the Citizens of Florida, and to his Roman Catholic faith.

Will America clog up the mailrooms of the Florida capital?

Let's hope so.

Short of bringing a loaded weapon to the capital to get real attention from those who have stolen our government from us, a package of the material the state of Florida is refusing to feed Terri is hardly threatening, and very remindful of just how angry America is with government's decision to torture an American Citizen whose only 'fault' lies in her inability to speak for herself.

May God's judgment come swiftly to those who have actively or passively harmed Terri Schindler Sharivo.

Or I might rely upon a comment my Chinese friends are want to say when vexing someone, "May they live in interesting times."

Sooner or later we will all get our just deserts. I would like to observe the retribution in this case.

Bump to the sanity you expressed in #4... Terri's situation is tragic but Jeb's hands are tied. We can't have governors acting like kings and overriding the law each time it suited their own personal agenda. We might like it momentarily when that agenda is one we agree with, but it would be a horrendous precedent to hand over to liberal governors.

I hope folks don't send jello and cause a huge and futile difficulty for the employees at the post offices :-(

Useless goofiness. A senseless, worthless, harassing idea. Is that any clearer to you?

Did you think that the mail takes two or three days even when you're NOT MAILING POWDER?

It's a shame what's going on there. I looked at a couple of the videos, and she doesn't seem to be what I'd call comatose. I know that the comatose will sometimes display reflexive actions, sometimes even following movement with their eyes, but I see something more here. I see emotion, and I think she remains a feeling, self aware person.

She is more what I would call chronically infirm, or what another society once described with the horrible term "useless eater".

A few years ago, when my mother in law was suffering terminal cancer, she instructed us beforehand not to provide artificial nutrition when she could no longer eat or drink on her own. But that was a decision she was able to make on her own, in a better time.

A very long time ago, some of our neighbors who car pooled to work were involvd in a serious rollover crash. One of the men suffered permanent brain damage and persisted for years in a state of consiousness similar to what it looks like Terri is in. The only difference was he did regain the ability to be fed by mouth, but someone had to feed him, he could not eat on his own. Otherwise, he was paralyzed and unable to speak, but he could be strapped to a chair and taken places, and was quite often brought to our church and other events around town. He could interact, you could tell him a joke and he would smile, and so on, and he seemed to appreciate being alive (though it was impossible for him to directly answer the question).

His wife did divorce him after a few years, and I guess I can understand that, she needed a husband that could do most the things husbands usually do, but she never did totally abandon him, and certainly wouldn't have supported witholding the care which kept him alive, even though his death would have brought her financial benefits she could not receive while he remained alive.

So Terri is in a bad spot, she, as our old neighbor, didn't predirect the level of care she wanted to receive if she bacame seriously incapacitated, so she is at the mercy of whatever is decided by her legal guardian, currently her spouse. He could wash his hands of her, so to speak, by just divorcing her and letting her next of kin take over, and most probably wouldn't fault him for doing that. But there is gain to be had from her death, and he seems to be motivated by that. I can't think of another reason he'd be pushing for this change in her care that will cause her death. If that's the issue here, shame on him.

Another thing to consider is that in a case like that, preventing death from the disease once would leave the person alive, but with a diseased body that would soon fail again. By contrast, Terri--at least until her execution began--had no apparent terminal condition (much to the dismay of her husband).

Tell you what, instead of waiting for Jeb to assault the hospital, why don't you form a posse of like minded individuals and do it yourself? Scared of a few guards at the door? Take some firepower with you. Against the law? Well, you don't seem to have a problem with asking Jeb Bush to violate a court order. Go for it, get Terri out of the pronto!

The person to target is Senator King, who is opposed to the introduction of any legislation except for the Scripps bill.

Do you have the proposed wording of the "Terri's Law" bill?

OH, I see. But you're still way off course. I object to flooding government mailrooms with leaky, manhandled packages of powder. There's nothing those people did to Terri that means they should deserve fearing for their lives. Nor do other functions of government, some of which involves veterans and others in similiar shape who need help, need to come to a screeching whoa because of one judge. I think we should do things to save Terri that will save Terri--not harass innocent third parties.

You know I really don't think that the employees should be harassed. But I can tell you this situation is very disgusting and to have the Leader and chief Law Enforcement Officer of the State say he cannot do anything is Ludicrous. I doubt it's a matter of Cannot, it's Will not!! Otherwise your saying that a State Court Judge and one guardian are in complete control of a citizen of the State's life. It's completely clear to even a half-wit that her constitutional rights are being violated. Horribly so.

Is it okay if I agree with you vehemently, and disagree with the tactic of filling the Florida state government's mailrooms with JELLO? It's not going to influence anyone. It might even get people arrested.

The people who realize that this is wrong know it and are looking for a legal means to fix it. The ones who don't know better or are downright evil are interfering, successfully. I will always oppose tactics that will aid them in that, and I think mailing jello will help the bad guys, not the good guys.

And it'll make the good guys look like flaky weirdos at best, and threatening terrorists at worst.

Jello or some sugar water could save Terry's brain from further damage. Terry wasn't in a comma before but if they don't provide what her brain needs she will be in a real comma, soon.

>> ...compose an email to all the Florida legislators about the upcoming "Terri's Bill" presentation today.

Unfortunately, the Eugene I am at is not the one in Florida, but the better known Eugene in Oregon (where the voters have already supported a form of euthanasia).

My main point in responding here is that I don't think Florida legislators are interested much at all in what I think their state laws should be.

But yeah, if you're there, take a look at what's proposed and tell them what you think about it. Just beware of unintended consequences. When you start drawing lines in the sand and making absolutes you are likely to have some. Goodness knows, we suffer plenty of them around here.
