They said they will reconvene at 5 pm EST.

I am glad they are reconvening, but considering that Terri is starving, one would think, they could have reconvened at 9 am instead.

This might signal that the Senate will adopt the house's bill.

Was it the House's bill that was the stronger of the two?

After doing what it takes to save Terry's life, they should declare Judge Greer in contempt of Congress and haul him up to D.C. in chains.

How would all this apply to the thousands of others out there in a similar situation to Terri? Particular those with living wills? Is this the federal government's business?

"After doing what it takes to save Terry's life, they should declare Judge Greer in contempt of Congress and haul him up to D.C. in chains."

EXACTLY. And as a consequence of that, I know there will be no shortage of FLA attorneys petitioning the FLA Bar to DISBARR this A*hole Judge.

Greer needs to be dealt with - but is there any way of doing it besides the contempt of Congress charge? Just curious...

I also just received this message from Congressman Steve King: " I just left DeLay's office

I will do a CNN debate tonight

Things have improved and I see a path for her."

IF that's in the form of a motion, I'll 2nd that.

Now all in favor, say aye.

Well, I suppose he could be impeached or (if elected) defeated at the polls or recalled from office...

those whould be the only LEGALLY PERMISSIBLE options I could think of...

My question is: what is actually going to come of this though? What are they going to do (in time) that will re-insert the tube ? I'm not trying to be a pain here, I just want to know if this will have any direct effect... we thought the subpoenas would work because you can't tamper with a federal witness... why should anything else work if greer is just going to ignore it, and Jeb won't use actual force?

This is very likely to happen. Stand by. Very large things may be about to happen.

Terri didn't have a living will.

She has a husband who wants her dead.

Hopefully it will be the Senate adopting the House Bill. Better language. Sensenbrenner was right to hold up a change in the House bill.

I believe that this won't affect the wishes of those with a living will. It's for those people who's specific wishes are unknown.

A good question - I do wonder that if Congress (the Federal Gov't) does act to stop this....will they set precedent that also stops other peoples own decisions via living wills -

Or will it be so structurally worded that it is only for this case (with the idea and explicit statement of setting no precedent)

No, just people in a schiavo-type case.

Why is it all or nothing with the pro-death crowd?

Greer could still issue another order removing the feeding tube, even after Congress passes the bill and the President signs it. We're still in for a bumpy ride.

The uproar could have been completely avoided if the courts had simply done what they should have done in the first, place, ie. follow the law laid down by the Florida legislature.

I hope you are correct (that the Federal Gov't is not setting precedent over even those with living wills).

I'm not sure that he's legally able to do that at this time. Perhaps federal force might be used if congress passes a strong bill.
