Press Release

Special Session Called in State Legislature

Speaker of the House, Johnnie Byrd to introduce “Terri’s Bill”

Clearwater, FL October 19, 2003: The Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush, has called a special session of the Florida Legislature for Monday, October 20, 2003. At that time, Florida’s Speaker of the House will introduce “Terri’s Bill”. By Florida law, two thirds majority vote are required to have a topic entered.

Volunteers with the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation have learned that Senate President, Jim King is against this bill.

The Bill would put an immediate moratorium on all dehydration and starvation deaths currently pending in Florida.

We have come to a time when the merchants of death have created a constitutional crisis and a justice gridlock, while the rightful life of Florida’s disabled and vulnerable citizens tragically hang on Terri Schindler-Schiavo’s court ordered dehydration and starvation death.

We urge all concerned Floridians to contact their Senators and State House members to vote for Terri’s bill.

Time is short.

"And it is up!! here"

Glad to see the story put online AND the picture of Terri.

But Cynthia Capers is wrong.....Terri is NOT in a 'vegetative state. She should learn the facts before writing any articles!

"I too am impressed - I don't know if there is another governor in the country who would go as far as he has. God give him strength; God be with Terri."

Odd.. and allll those people around these threads insisting that Jeb could do nothing to help. Wonder if they are going to come around and admit they were wrong?

There was a vocal group that wanted everyone to leave Jeb alone and saying he could not help. It seems this proves them wrong though. Apparently, all the badgering him worked!

Well I did email Jeb...but I mostly figured his hands to be tied. I also think this will be nothing short of a miracle if it goes....

But what else I have to do tomorrow can wait and this is our very last, last chance and hope.

CALL IN SICK, EVERYONE!
no, just kidding....

Well only some people have lived that long, some have died earlier, like 6 or 8 days...it depends on the general health and hydration of the person when they begin killing.

I would say that after a week it's better to go than make it through the next week, imo.

Exactly. I think he just wanted the whole politically troubling hassle to go away, along with the victim. But he got pestered into doing something. Let's keep it up.

Thanks for the hopeful update! Please tell Terri's family that there are SO MANY people out there, all over the place, who are outraged and are saying diligent prayers for Terri's well-being and for a miracle! I, for one, will not give up until I see justice done. Terri has become our hope, and our reason to fight for a better, kinder, more moral world.

I just saw this at another thread.
Someone's made it EASY AS CAN BE to Email all the legislators.

I just Emailed 28 lawmakers with one click!

Just cut and paste your message. I think about 5 Emails can get everyone covered.

Here's the link:

Cold Water alert:

- Can the legislature's moratorium supercede an existing court order, or will it only prevent any procedures "currently pending in Florida" (i.e., not begun) and (obviously) prevent any future attempts at initiating new ones? I SMELL WIGGLE ROOM FOR MIKEY, becuase Terri's procedure isn't PENDING, it's IN PROGRESS. Judge Greer and Mikey will take any loophole they can find. Cynical me is also wondering if they legislators don't already know they can't stop it, but are grandstanding for the state. I can only suggest that you have to watch these guys closely, the lawmakers and Mikey's death squad.

- With all due respect, why wasn't this special session called last Thursday, or even Wedesday, or even last Monday?

Just so you know where I stand overall, though....GOD SAVE TERRI, PLEASE.

My husband speculates like this....just for an idea....not that we have a clue at all!

Jeb didn't call it until he knew he would have it. And was spending the last few weeks getting that knowledge together.

Again I am not trying to raise hopes or say this is anything but pure speculation on the part of my husband.

When you say "have it", do you mean have the votes to get it to pass, or have it the session?

JUST EMAILED ALL 157 FLORIDA LEGISLATORS IN LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES!!

Click here to see how:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1003808/posts?page=90#90

Works like a charm with my Outlook Express Email application!
Just save your message, copy and paste. Each Email goes to about 25 lawmakers.

TIP: Use a catchy Subject line, and mention "Terri's Bill". Words like "URGENT" might help.

MY husband made the point that if he has the 2/3 to bring it in, he probably has enough to pass it?

geeze Deo, are you ever going to stop being a whiz kid? I swear...

I emailed them all individually and wrote each one a personal letter. I spoke about her skin cracking and her suffering and mentioned Christ and doing "unto the least of these". They were short but hopefully meaningful.
