This article by Wesley J. Smith is in a thread by jy22077. Thank you, jy2207 for this thread. I am quoting parts where he echoes the plight of people we track in our Terri Dailies, namely Jesse Ramirez and Haleigh Poutre. Thanks FV and Phil Dragoo, for the ping. It can also be found by those who receive the Foundation newsletter and on their website. The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation

......................................

On October 19, only months after being nearly dehydrated to death when his feeding tube was removed, Jesse Ramirez walked out of the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix on his own two legs. Ramirez is lucky to be alive. Early last June, a mere one week after a serious auto accident left him unconscious, his wife Rebecca and doctors decided he would never recover and pulled his feeding tube. He went without food and water for five long days. But then his mother, Theresa, represented by lawyers from the Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund, successfully took Rebecca to court demanding a change of guardianship on the grounds that Rebecca and Jesse's allegedly rocky marriage disqualified her for the role.

The judge ordered that Jesse be temporarily rehydrated and nourished. Then Jesse regained consciousness. Now, instead of dying by dehydration, he will receive rehabilitation and get on with his life--all because his mother rejected the reigning cultural paradigm that a life with profound cognitive dysfunction is not worth living.

Ramirez is only the latest instance of an unconscious patient waking up after being consigned to death by dehydration. Take the disturbing case of 12-year-old Haleigh Poutre in Massachusetts. Haleigh barely survived terrible child abuse and then was nearly done in by the very people charged with protecting her. Only eight days after she was hospitalized in the wake of a beating, the Massachusetts Department of Public Social Services, acting on doctors' solemn assurances that she was "virtually brain dead," requested permission to remove her respirator and feeding tube. This request was approved by the Massachusetts Supreme Court.

But the doctors, social workers, and judges were wrong about Haleigh's prospects. Just before her life support was withdrawn, she began to exhibit signs of awareness--she picked up a stuffed duck when requested--leading to a last-minute reprieve. Today, while Haleigh's exact condition is not public information, reports in the media indicate she is awake and aware and able to eat some foods.

Please note the last paragraph of the above on Haleigh Poutre. Rightly Wesley J. Smith recognizes she received a reprieve as if sentenced to death as a vicious criminal, and that, she was. Note also, DSS has kept poor Haleigh under wraps so the world may not see how she receives her care. They regard her as their personal property even today. At least she escaped the attempts to kill her so far.

Baptist press weighs in on candidates and Terri.

CHANGE OF ATTITUDE ON SCHIAVO -- More than two years after Republicans in Washington led the charge to keep Terri Schiavo alive, the leading GOP presidential candidates say they have doubts as to the way their party handled the situation, The Boston Globe reported Oct. 25. Schiavo is the Florida disabled woman who died after her feeding tube was pulled.

Mitt Romney has called the decision of Congress to get involved a mistake. Fred Thompson said he is "uncomfortable" with Congress' actions, while Rudy Giuliani has called it a family matter. Mike Huckabee months ago said, "I wasn't sure how the federal government had a role in all that," while John McCain -- who supported Congress' actions at the time -- now says legislators "acted too hastily."

Bobby Schindler, Schiavo's brother, says he is writing the candidates to express his concern.

"I want to personally talk with them about Terri's case," he told The Globe. "They need to be fully informed. There obviously exists a lot of confusion about my sister's situation."

How many times now have we heard this refrain shouted at us in different Goebblesque refrain? Decent Americans want innocents like Terri killed by the State and hate any who would try to save the lives of same innocents. Here a candidate digs the dog-eared block out of the mantra toybox and tosses it at one who defended Terri.

MELBOURNE, Fla., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Dave Weldon (R-FL), a physician, voted one more time against the Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), thus helping to prevent the expansion of this program to cover some of the 9 million uninsured children in our country. Dr. Stephen Blythe, a family physician in the congressman's district, takes such exception to Weldon's actions in Congress that he will be running against him for the 15th District seat next year. This may be the first time two physicians have faced each other in a congressional race in fifty years.

~Snip~

"I am as different from Dave Weldon as night and day," says Blythe. "I am an environmentalist, I am against this administration's abuses of our constitutional rights, and against the war in Iraq. I am also against government interference in a family's private end-of-life decision-making." It was Dave Weldon who brought the full weight of the U.S. Government to bear in the Terri Schiavo controversy in Florida in 2005.

Rudy Tuesday brought to us by wagglebee...

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A new poll conducted by Fox News finds that almost half of all voters want to know where a candidate stands on the issue of abortion before casting their vote for or against him. The poll is the latest to show that abortion still has a significant impact for voters, despite media pronouncements to the contrary.

The new survey, released on Friday, finds 45 percent of Americans need to know a candidate's position on abortion before they vote, while 53 percent say they don't.

A candidate's position on abortion is more important for pro-life voters than those who back abortion.

Candidate Duncan Hunter in contrast...

Thread by pissant. Thanks, DavidOsborne.

Recently a number of social conservatives rightfully criticized some of the less than fiscally conservative postions of former Governor Mike Huckabee. They oppose him on PRINCIPLES, you see? That is all good, unless they are LIARS and HYPOCRITS who now are going to endorse or support someone even more liberal fiscally and totally opposed to them socially. Who would that be? Who could they support who are worse than Mike Huckabee? Easy, lets start with Fred I-Lobby-For-Abortion Thompson. I almost ranked John McCain ahead of Thompson, and I may still yet. Then there is Mitt Flip-Flop-I-Support-Safe-Legal-Abortion-And-Special-Rights-For-Gays Romney. Frankly, I don't even know why I have to mention Rudy Giuliani.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Rudy Giuliani has tried hard to use his supposed advocacy of adoption as the mayor of New York to combat Republican opposition to his pro-abortion views as he campaigns for president. His pro-adoption claims have been refuted on previous occasions and now a leading abortion advocate says they are "unsupportable."

More on post 106:

HUNTER: “..on the Schiavo case, you know Ronald Reagan said on the question of life, when there’s a question, error on the side of life. I think Congress did the right thing.”

http://www.iht.com/bin/print.php?id=5562636

HUCKABEE: Huckabee, on governmental intervention in the Terri Schiavo case:

“I had no problem with the state getting involved because it’s one of their citizens. but I wasn’t sure how the federal government had a role in all that.”’

http://pushingrope.blogspot.com/2007/05/mike-huckabee-on-terri-schiavo.html

Huckabee disappointed me, because it is the government’s DUTY to protect innocent lives.

Rudy, Mitt, John and Fred also didn’t think that Congress should have intervened.

Also, I have read that McCain wanted to change the GOP platform from pro-life to pro-”choice.” Big tent theory, I guess.

Sun, Jeb is for Rudy, Greer's rich pal (Sembler) is for Mitt, Fred's got some Bushes for him. It's a little weird because Sembler and Jeb have been really kissy kissy for years. As well as Bush 43 and 41. So, what's Rudy done for Jeb lately? Maybe Jeb wants to be in a Rudy tooty cabinet since he wouldn't have to run but could go to Washington anyhow. Appointed, not elected-which would never happen now in a million years.

Just a theory in the middle of the night.

Dave Weldon is a great congressman and doctor. SCHIPS gave 25 year olds health care. Sorry, but that's not a minor. SCHIPS is supposed to be for kids, like Trix, not 25 year olds.

Dr. Blythe, is he a bioethicker? It would be easy enough to find out.

One thing here is crucial. The democrats may not like it, but they experience the power and import of Terri's Legacy.

Knowing what we know, it is a telling condemnation of the democrat party of late, in iron clad irony supporting the far left. Once again, they rattle on that old propaganda piece that good Americans want innocents like Terri killed and hate Americans who would wish to save her. The poor stepmother here wrongly branded Jeb. Had she known, he was to become her hero by bravely playing Pontius Pilate and allowing the killing to proceed with his blessings. These types of democrats suffer from incredible cognative dissonence, the ability to bundle a bunch of conflicting concepts into the same bag.

This article is a compendium of misquotes and bs by that Kingsley Guy. Anyone wishing to tally the inanane statements should read the whole mess.

I wasn't expecting the angry response of my stepmother toward a Republican politician. "Maybe so," she said in almost a shout, "but he should be ashamed of himself for what he's doing to that poor woman with the feeding tube."

That "poor woman" was Terri Schiavo, who had been institutionalized in Pinellas County since 1990 after she suffered a stroke and entered a persistent vegetative state.

The religious right, with Gov. Bush as its strongest ally, wanted the state to keep Schiavo alive. After interminable legal and political battles, however, a judge ordered the feeding tube removed, allowing Schiavo to finally die in March 2005.

Democrats, learn from Schiavo case

Well here we have an opinion from the President of the ACLU and just guess which side they took on Terri. In my estimation one cannot get much harder core with a diamond center than these commies. Any who still side with her killer and even considers themselves FReepers should swallow what the top brain of the American Commie Loonies Union says. I do note she hasn't selected the favorite killing method of dehydration for herself. Somebody please hand this death lover a glass of Canada dry.

...................................

DS: So how would you like to die?

NS: Well, the first thing that occurred to me was: I want to have the choice. That was the very first thing that occurred to me, because I know how through personal experiences, through vicarious experiences, through reading the complaints in our law suits where we have challenged the absolute restrictions on compassion and dying, people are essentially tortured. And I don’t want that to happen. And I don’t want my love wants tortured by watching that happen.

DS: You wouldn’t want a Terri Schiavo situation?

NS: That was an ACLU case; we represented her husband there. It has to be consenting, but there are measures we can take, and precautions we can take, so there it should be regulated. I say the same thing about drugs. You wouldn’t want to have regulation the way we do for food and alcohol, but absolute prohibition is completely inhumane and counter to the most fundamental autonomy of who you are.

DS: So you have the choice, what is your choice?

NS: My choice would be to take a sleeping pill, I guess, or maybe morphine would have the same effect, to peacefully pass from this Earth when I have made a decision that I can no longer live in this state of comfort and dignity that makes life meaningful to me.......................................

FIRE Press Release NEWARK, Del., October 30, 2007—The University of Delaware subjects students in its residence halls to a shocking program of ideological reeducation that is referred to in the university’s own materials as a “treatment” for students’ incorrect attitudes and beliefs. The Orwellian program requires the approximately 7,000 students in Delaware’s residence halls to adopt highly specific university-approved views on issues ranging from politics to race, sexuality, sociology, moral philosophy, and environmentalism. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is calling for the total dismantling of the program, which is a flagrant violation of students’ rights to freedom of conscience and freedom from compelled speech.

This thread by 3angelaD is about the movie Bella we mentioned earlier. I heard Laura Ingraham interview the star. Refreshing indeed! Thanks, narses, for the ping.

Hollywood, CA -- Bella, the pro-life themed movie that has the potential to change hearts and minds on abortion, opened solidly with $1.3 million over the weekend in a limited release in just 31 cities. Though other movies achieved higher gross sales, they needed significantly more theaters to do so. The film stars Eduardo Verastegui as a former soccer player who learns the value of human life and helps a pregnant waitress, played by Tammy Blanchard, appreciate the value of the baby she's carrying.

WORCHESTER, Massachusetts, September 28, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Jesuit-run Holy Cross, the oldest Catholic college in New England, is hosting the 2007 Teen Pregnancy Institute with Planned Parenthood promoting teenage contraception.

The Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy presents the conference every year, but by hosting the conference the Holy Cross Jesuits are sending the message that they have no qualms with its promotion of contraception and the presence of Planned Parenthood, which are intrinsically inimical to the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

Matt Abbott writes this on The Thomas More Society and their long list of efforts. One was help for Terri.

...........................................

I recently attended the 10th year anniversary benefit dinner for the Chicago-based Thomas More Society, Pro-Life Law Center, a "not-for-profit, public interest law firm ... dedicated to fighting for the rights and dignity of all human life. The Society vigorously defends clients in state and federal courtrooms around the country, addressing vital issues across the pro-life spectrum, including pregnancy discrimination, end-of-life health care, the right of conscientious objection for medical workers, and freedom of speech for peaceable nonviolent protest."

Defending the Defenders of Terri Schiavo — We traveled to Clearwater, Florida, twice to defend out of state defendants who were prosecuted for trying to bring food and water to the dying Terri Schiavo. We also were asked to consult with the Schindlers, Terri's family, in St. Petersburg about issues arising in the wake of Terri's death and publication of books by both the Schindler family and Michael Schiavo.

Fred and Terri tar baby dailies...

This time the far left uses the tar baby to prove a point, a horror to them but a joy to most of us. Thanks, lefties, for bringing out this info we may have missed otherwise.

...........................

At last count, he’s flubbed questions on Iraqi WMD, the Jena Six, Terri Schiavo, Social Security, a national consumption tax, and drilling the Everglades. Now he’s taking on the United Nations and gun-control policy.

~Snip~

But just as importantly, Thompson appears to be making these mistakes as part of a shameless effort to pander to the far-right. Kevin Drum notes the conspiracy theories that underscore Thompson’s odd policy position.

National Rifle Association Vice President Wayne LaPierre insists the U.N. is concerned about more than illicit arms in African hot spots. He says the global body wants the firearms of American citizens — and much more.

“So, after we are disarmed, the U.N. wants us demobilized and reintegrated,” says the NRA’s executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, according to the Economist magazine. “I can hear it now: ‘Step right this way for your reprogramming, sir. Once we confiscate your guns, we can demobilize your aggressive instincts and reintegrate you into civil society.’ No thanks.”

As Kevin concluded, “Fred is just telling social conservatives, ‘I’m one of you. And I’m not afraid to look like a complete loon if that’s what it takes to prove it.’”

ThompsonÂ’s policy troubles get a little worse

Jill Stanek gives us some glimpses behind the mask of Planned Parenthood in a thread by wagglebee.

One of those employees, Dr. Murray Pelta, was an abortionist for PP/CA from 1992-2007, its medical director from 1997-2007. The stories he must have to tell, and he indeed tells a couple in his complaint.

I've tried to imagine what it's like to be on the inside of PP, particularly its upper echelon. But when a business' lifeblood is abortion, I'm sure we will not begin to fathom the depths of its depravity until someone finally writes that tell-all book. (Paging Dr. Pelta? It's certain to be a best-seller, sir. Consider it.)

What goes around comes around?

They FED the machine for years and helped Judge Greer and Charlie Crist get elected.

Now the machine is biting back. Their association with Judge Greer by running his campaign has tainted their family name forever and now their well is running a little dry.

Out, darn spot, out.

God Bless Terri, murdered by and for wealthy people.

This article appears in LifeNews, appeared in slightly different form and as a separate thread as "Awakenings" Regardless, it is worth a repeat as it so uncannily echoes details surrounding Terri's plight.

..................................

On October 19, only months after being nearly dehydrated to death when his feeding tube was removed, Jesse Ramirez walked out of the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix on his own two legs. Ramirez is lucky to be alive.

Early last June, a mere one week after a serious auto accident left him unconscious, his wife Rebecca and doctors decided he would never recover and pulled his feeding tube. He went without food and water for five long days.

But then his mother, Theresa, represented by lawyers from the Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund, successfully took Rebecca to court demanding a change of guardianship on the grounds that Rebecca and Jesse's allegedly rocky marriage disqualified her for the role.

The judge ordered that Jesse be temporarily rehydrated and nourished. Then Jesse regained consciousness. Now, instead of dying by dehydration, he will receive rehabilitation and get on with his life--all because his mother rejected the reigning cultural paradigm that a life with profound cognitive dysfunction is not worth living.

Ramirez is only the latest instance of an unconscious patient waking up after being consigned to death by dehydration. Take the disturbing case of 12-year-old Haleigh Poutre in Massachusetts. Haleigh barely survived terrible child abuse and then was nearly done in by the very people charged with protecting her.

Only eight days after she was hospitalized in the wake of a beating, the Massachusetts Department of Public Social Services, acting on doctors' solemn assurances that she was "virtually brain dead," requested permission to remove her respirator and feeding tube. This request was approved by the Massachusetts Supreme Court.

But the doctors, social workers, and judges were wrong about Haleigh's prospects. Just before her life support was withdrawn, she began to exhibit signs of awareness--she picked up a stuffed duck when requested--leading to a last-minute reprieve. Today, while Haleigh's exact condition is not public information, reports in the media indicate she is awake and aware and able to eat some foods.

Once again mentioned upthread "The Passion of Terri Schiavo" is billed. I'm curious if anyone finds current reviews.

Wake Up! Karen Finley is one of our more radical performers. So when she comes to town with a new work in progress called Wake Up!--and that work contains performances called "The Dreams of Laura Bush" and "The Passion of Terri Schiavo"--one hurries to see her. Radicalism, anger, daring--that is what we need these days, if not in Washington, at least on the stage. . . . (Curtainup) The Green Room, 45 Bleecker St, 212-239-6200, $22. Sun 7pm. Thru Sun.

It appeared in slightly different form in a thread I posted upthread at #101. Too hot an issue to ignore, and worthy of a repeat IMHO.

We remember Kenneth Connors as the advisor to whom Jeb didn't listen at the end.

..................................

Evangelical leaders who once marshaled millions of votes for conservative presidential candidates going back to Ronald Reagan have lost their principles in this election cycle, the head of a conservative policy institute said this week.

In a presidential campaign in which conservative evangelicals find no home with any of the first-tier GOP candidates, influential conservatives like James Dobson, Tony Perkins and Paul Weyrich remain on the sidelines because they fear the loss of their reputations as kingmakers if they back a long-shot candidate like Mike Huckabee and then lose, said Ken Connor, founder of the Center for a Just Society, a policy center that advocates for conservative causes, especially in life and marriage issues.

"There are perceptions these guys are more concerned about being players than they are about principle," Connor said in an interview at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Candidate natural choice

Connor was instrumental in defending a Florida law -- later reversed -- to prevent the removal of a feeding tube from Terri Schiavo, an unconscious patient whose care became the subject of a national bioethics debate in 2005.

Haleigh Poutre update...

"The Republican" leads the once more in the latest on the Haleigh Poutre saga.

................................

BOSTON - Inspired by the Haleigh Poutre abuse case, the state House of Representatives yesterday approved a bill to overhaul the operation of the state's child welfare system.

The House voted 154-0 to approve the bill. The legislation creates a cabinet-level secretary of child welfare, a 21-member advisory board on child abuse and neglect and changes the name state Department of Social Services to the Department of Children and Families.

The bill also gives the state social services department 15 days to investigate a report of suspected neglect or abuse - a so-called 51A report - up from the current 10 days. The 51A reports, considered preliminary, are filed with the department by medical professionals and other mandated reporters............................

The Boston Globe mentions Haleigh too.

..........................................

BOSTON --House lawmakers unanimously approve a bill to toughen the state's child protection laws.

The bill sets minimum education requirements for social workers and increases criminal penalties if those legally required to report child abuse fail to do so.

It also creates a new cabinet secretary dedicated solely to child welfare and seeks to address racial disparities in the child welfare system.

The bill was prompted by the case of Haleigh Poutre, whose adoptive mother and stepfather were accused of beating her. Haleigh was hospitalized with severe brain injuries in 2005.

The Department of Social Services, which took custody of Haleigh, won court approval to remove Haleigh's feeding tube. The agency was criticized for acting too quickly after Haleigh showed signs of improvement.

It is another beautiful fall day here in the wilds of Maine, great for hunting, but no trolls in sight. I have a special tag this season for antlerless, either gender, since it is hard to tell the difference unless up close, but the horizon is clear right now. Seen any lately? Since trick or treat night, they are scarse.

It’s my weapon of choice except for long ranges, then my sporterized Mauser does it up to about three hundred yards or so. Luckily they are not fast moving targets, stand still and stomp in place so are ripe targets. Closer ones buzz around the zapper.

OK Senator Coburn Deficit worse than abortion. (here we go again morally equivocating). Had those babies lived, they'd be paying taxes to be blunt.

Georgia's running out of water fyi.

Terri just needed enough for herself but the legal system stated it was too much. Dehydration is painful and barbaric.
