Bush's motion to dismiss Sciavo's suit against the Constitutionality of Terri's Law, link to FatherOfLiberty's research on HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy), links to ACLJ involvement in Schiavo case and Father Rob Johansen's daily update.
There are four other relevant posts that I want to highlight here in case anyone missed them or didn't get pinged. These are a general Terri thread troll alert, an especially thoughtful post about the sincere effort that FReepers are making in Terri's behalf, the Father's Love Letter , and remarks made by Jim Robinson on this issue and reposted here by lonevoice.
This thread serves as a place for posting all new general information and references, along with links following Terri's case, plus information on cable news and talk radio shows dealing with the issue, court cases and press releases. This is also the place to post contact information, prayers and general discussion.
If you have something that qualifies as BREAKING NEWS or FRONT PAGE NEWS, please post it on a separate thread in that category in order to give it maximum exposure and then post a link to the article/thread here so that it will be included in the next update of links. Also, if you post links to articles from original sources and there is also a thread on FR, please link to the FR thread. Many original links become corrupt over time and we want to be able to access the information at will.
There was a tremendous amount of information posted on the previous thread. For anyone who hasn't been following the daily threads, links to relevant posts and information from the previous thread are contained in the body of the present one. I have found that very helpful in trying to find something later. You people are doing a spectacular job of getting information out and also in helping to keep all of us updated here. What a great joint effort. This fight, to me, illustrates beautifully what Free Republic is about and what it means to be a FReeper. Way to go FRiends. Keep up the good work!

1. There was a light in the hospital hallway. My door was open. But the light from the hallway DID NOT come into the room; it DID NOT illuminate ANYTHING in my room, it was pitch black. This memory came to me in my dreams, almost every night, until I was about 30, when I began to think about my "dream." I asked my uncle if he knew whether or not I died, even for a few minutes. He said no, he doesn't recall that occurring, but it's possible. I told him about my memory with the bright light in the hallway/dark hospital room. To me, this was real, not just something I made up in a dream. It may have occurred while I was in a coma, therefore, I was still able to sense/see light/dark. My mother died when I was 12, so I could never ask her about this.
2. I thought there was a net over my hospital crib, because I remember feeling something like that. My uncle said there was no net, but there was an oxygen tent I was in. I assume I was still in a coma when the oxygen tent was over me. I assume when I came out of a coma four days later and was "aware" of things, it wouldn't have been necessary to continue to be in need of an oxygen tent. (But that's just my opinion.)
And so, even though I was written off by the priests and the doctors, my parents didn't have them remove the feeding tubes that must have been connected to my body.
Could be the EXPERIMENTAL ELECTRO-BRAIN SURGERY complete with IMPLATED CORTEX ELECTRODE ....according to MS on Larry King caused this.....?
This is a war, freerepublic.com is at the forefront, these people go to sites and try to disrupt the work being done, they know where to go, and they have been watching for a while, they are not dumb so they know what freeps want to hear and how to play us, they already have disrupted things here, and they will do it more.. we need to keep reminding ourselves of that.
Maxfield testified, adding that hyperbaric oxygen therapy, similar to Hammesfahr's recommendation, could lead to improvement
There are several state of the art hypergaric centers in Florida ,......dealing with divers accidents from Gulf oil rigs,,,.
GET HER IN A PRESSURIZED O2 ATMOSPHERE ASAP....if will work wondes.
There are many things which are totally wrong here. Such as Dr. Wolfson who not only has a conflict of interest but also just gives me the creeps. Gov. Bush should be made aware of these problems. Florida voters would have the best impact on convincing him that Terri and her family are not getting a fair deal.
While they may not be dumb, their arrogance DOES make them blind, and we are praying for guidance from the One who sees everything and who turns the ways of the wicked against them. I don't doubt that Felos has checked the site out. We messed up his evil design, or at least had a big part in it, but he doesn't intimidate me, nor do the trolls. It is just a matter of keeping everything in perspective.
"By their fruits ye shall know them." (Matt. 7:20)
Another fine point .. it seems Judge Greer gave the okay for George Felos to act as Terri's attorney, to be paid for by her money .. in essence, she's paying him to kill her. Now that MS has to defend himself as acting in Terri's best interest, and George Felos is still on the scene, is he now Michael's attorney? Can he represent both?
In court, family members on both sides recounted what Terri said she wanted.

...Mrs. Schiavo's former friend, Diane Meyer, recalled watching a movie about Quinlan in the summer of 1982 after they graduated high school.
"I remember one of the things she said is, "How did they know she would want this? How did they know she wouldn't want to go on?"' Meyer testified.
Circuit Judge George Greer later ruled that Mrs. Schiavo's feeding tube could be removed.
The judge said he was persuaded by testimony by Michael Schiavo. He said that testimony, combined with statements of other family members, was "clear and convincing evidence."
He discounted things Mrs. Schiavo might have said as a child about Quinlan.
