    Republican judges killed Terri -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: May 9, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 There's a good reason congressional Republicans will not hold investigative hearings on the judicial homicide of Terri Schiavo. Republican judges killed her, just as surely as the Democrat judges did. This is the dirty little secret that would be uncovered if Republican lawmakers scratched beneath the surface of how and why the 11th Circuit ignored the will of the people and the U.S. Congress and the president of the United States in refusing a full review of her case as decided by Republican county Judge...

    Over the course of the past week, the Terri Schiavo case made headlines with its swift and unsuccessful journey through the federal courts. The string of court defeats might have left the impression that the case was doomed from the outset. Yet the litigation's failure may owe more to a poor tactical choice by the lawyers advising the Schindlers--Terri's parents--than to the case's underlying merits. The original Schindler complaint included a variety of federal constitutional and statutory claims. Each of them was weak at best, as was quickly reflected in federal district judge James Whittemore's ruling that the Schindlers had...

    Terri Schiavo has been suffering from fatal dehydration for the past week and liberal anti-life crusaders have been relishing in every moment of it. That is, of course, despite last-ditch efforts by President Bush and the Republican party-poopers in Congress to have Terri’s feeding tubes restored. Amid all the fuss, the left’s latest rationalization for starving poor little Terri to death is this: There may have been political motives behind the Republicans’ endeavor to save Terri’s life! President Bush signed a bill on March 21 that would transfer jurisdiction of the Terri Schiavo case to a U.S. district court. This...

    THE WASHINGTON TIMES A federal judge refused yesterday to restore Terri Schiavo's feeding tubes, prompting the parents of the brain-damaged woman to take their case immediately to an appeals court. U.S. District Judge James Whittemore ruled against reinserting the feeding tube, which was removed Friday under a state court order pursued by Mrs. Schiavo's husband, Michael. Judge Whittemore said state courts have handled the case sufficiently. "Theresa Schiavo's life and liberty interests were adequately protected by the extensive process provided in the state courts," he said.
