Skip to comments.Prevent Florida State Senator James King From Blocking Terr's Law
Posted on 10/20/2003 2:04:32 AM PDT by nickcarraway
Florida Governor Jeb Bush is finally pursuing a course to save the life of Terri Schiavo. Governor Bush is calling a special session of the Florida legislatureon Monday to pass legislation that he worked on with Florida Speaker of the House Johnnie Byrd. ``Terri's Bill'' would immediately suspend all dehydration and starvation deaths in the state.
LifeNews.com, however is reporting that one man is the greatest obstacle to this happening, Florida Senate President Jim King, the man who controls the state Senate's agenda.
It's obviously important that we contact all state representatives, Senators, and other parties, but it is absolutely critical we put the pressure on Senator King!
Senator James E. "Jim" King, Jr.is the state Senator from Florida's district 8, which covers parts of Duval, Flagler, Nassau, St. Johns, and Volusia counties. Especially if you live in his district, please call him and tell him that he needs to listen to Governor Bush and Speaker Byrd and put this on the agenda tomorrow. Tell him you think this bill needs to be passed ASAP. And call any relatives or friends you have who live in that district to call (or email) him. Right now, he may be the one person with the most power to stop this bill. Let's let him know it needs to get passed. He needs some serious Freeping!

Florida Legislature Plans Special Session That May Help Terri Schiavo
Speaker of the House, Johnnie Byrd to introduce Terris Bill
LIVE FROM TERRI'S VIGIL - EMERGENCY - LEGISLATIVE SESSION - CALL FLORIDA REPS NOW!!
PLEASE HELP TERRI - A BILL IS BEING INTRODUCED TOMORROW
This is the man. He will say whether Terri lives or dies now.
Question of the day: Why oh why wouldn't the government allow Terri to receive communion yesterday?
Answer: It would prove she can swallow!!!!! They'd have to stop the murder by decree, and declare the death of the greatest growth industries ( spell that s-c-a-m ) by the two evil sisters - religion and government!!!
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!!!
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.
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 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 GREAT EXPENSE TO ALL AROUND YOU.
"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."
Do something that will really tick 'em off!!! Let your envelope be one of many that will fill their offices with the dreaded packages of jello they dare not feed Terri. My family sent already sent three envelopes to these arrogant pretenders.
So what's our REAL message???
Change the way your running things!!! We're watching you, and we don't like the way you're doing business in our name!!!

What Next? After you deposit your mailing to Governor Bush, please allow time to offer Him your prayers for Terri, and be certain to pass this entire email on to everyone you know, asking them to join with us - urging they bring this to the attention of their friends.
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.
Now you have James King saying he won't allow the Bill to be presented? Conflict of interest ~ highly suspect ~ there's much to be learned here, I'm sure.
