Good night and thanks for your dedication to this fight against euthanasia (which is ILLEGAL but the media fails to mention that)...

The McCain Scrutiny...

The elites have granted us one wish out of three choices, or none of the above. This one is the least antagonistic of Terri's Legacy, and this is what he says:


In the brief news conference, Baptist Press asked McCain in light of his position on the sanctity of human life and his position on "judges who ... legislate from the bench," to clarify comments he made last year about Congress' intervention in the Terri Schiavo case. He told MSNBC, "It's an American tragedy." Baptist Press asked McCain to define what he meant by that.

"It's very sad when you see a situation such as this, it's very sad, I think just by looking at the situation it was a terrible situation and one that probably the state should had handled in retrospect and it was a very sad, sad situation and moved all of us who are -- and the plight of this situation moved every American," McCain said.

Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama said during a debate Feb. 26 that he regrets his 2005 vote allowing Congress to get involved in the case involving Terri Schiavo, the severely disabled woman from Florida who died of starvation and dehydration after nutrition and hydration were discontinued.

Obama made the comments during a Democratic debate with Hillary Clinton. Both were asked if there were any words or votes they'd "like to take back." Clinton cited her vote authorizing the war in Iraq; Obama, his Schiavo vote.

During a debate last year, Republican John McCain called the matter a "very, very difficult issue" and seemed himself to have some regrets.

"All of us were deeply moved by the pictures and the depiction of this terrible, tragic case," McCain said. "In retrospect, we should have taken some more time, looked at it more carefully, and probably [we] reacted too hastily."...................
