    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida governor Jeb Bush on Friday once again defended his decision to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman whose death capped an intense national debate about ethics and politics, but also suggested that Medicare recipients should be required to outline end-of-life care plans before accepting the benefits. "I don’t think I would have changed anything," he said in response to a questioner during a "Politics and Eggs" breakfast here Friday. "I stayed within the constitutional responsibilities or authority that I had. We changed the law first and then a year later it...

    If Terri dies when she could actually be kept alive, and Jeb Bush doesn't use the State Police or the Florida National Guard, or ANYTHING to prevent this travesty, he will be vilified by the democRATS if he ever seeks another office (like the Presidency).It means nothing that some democRATS are actually trying to keep her alive. The only thing that the MSM will hammer on is that he stood by AS Governor and allowed that poor woman to DIE when he could have prevented it.

    As I watched conservatives seethe Wednesday, and Chris McDaniel (so devoted to describing his martyrdom that I think he’s a day or two away from nailing himself to a cross) boil, I came to feel—to a certain point—sympathy. If the situation were reversed, I thought, and a sellout Democrat had defeated a more progressive opponent on the strength of votes from Republicans, I have to confess I wouldn’t like it a bit. And just as I thought about that, I remembered: Wait. This happened. And it was kind of similar. But it was also quite dissimilar, in ways that are...

Attorneys representing 43-year-old Terry Mace and his parents came to an agreement Thursday outside of court. Terry Allen Mace and Carol Mace will have control over their son's financial matter, as well as the ability to keep him on life support for the next 60 days. Mace's estranged wife was not a part of Thursday's proceedings. Her attorney did not contest the order presented to her by Mace's Attorney Ad Litem.

This, they say in a co-authored article published today, could be accomplished by removing one simple impediment - the requirement of donor "death." In a separate article, published last week, Wilkinson suggested an even more radical plan – mandatory organ donation. "We could abandon the dead donor rule," wrote the pair in today’s article,...

The researchers determined that some 40 percent had been incorrectly diagnosed as being in a persistent vegetative state, when they were in fact in a minimally conscious state. And 10 percent of those diagnosed as being minimally conscious were communicating functionally.A patient who is minimally conscious shows periodic...

    Can Ambien Wake Up PVS Patients? The Guardian gives credence to a case report concerning three patients purportedly diagnosed in PVS for more than three years who were "aroused transiently every morning after zolpidem," a sleeping pill. That would be Ambien. The report, by Clauss and Nel, of Royal Surrey County Hospital and of Family Practice of Pollack Park South Africa, was published in this month's issue of Neurorehabilitation. There are 26 million annual prescriptions for Ambien, most of which are probably not to patients in a persistent vegetative state. Recall that Ambien is oft reported to cause odd behavior...

    A sleeping pill can temporarily revive people in a permanent vegetative state to the point where they can have conversations, a study finds. Zolpidem is usually used to treat insomnia. South African researchers, writing in the NeuroRehabilitation, looked at the effects on three patients of using the drug for up to six years. But one expert in neurological rehabilitation said it was possible the patients had a different condition. A person in a vegetative state will appear to be awake and may have their eyes open, but will show no awareness of their surroundings. They will not be able to...

    The terrible deaths made possible by modern medical advances necessitate a change in thinking about the ethics of assisted suicide. These days, despite my conservative nature and my firm support for him on most matters, I seem to be disagreeing with President Bush on several fronts: the Terry Schiavo case, illegal immigration, the pouring of money down the drain in New Orleans, and now, assisted suicide. Over 15 years ago, as I watched my mother’s health and body deteriorate and the likelihood of a very painful death process looming, I turned to the Hemlock Society and purchased the book, “Final...

    I’ve never agreed with Florida Governor Jeb Bush on much, but I’ve always respected his integrity and the sincerity of his conservative views. Until now. His latest gambit in the case of Terri Schiavo is despicable. In fact, it calls to mind what another craven opportunist without regard for human decency did in the Tawana Brawley case in the late 1980s. Jeb Bush is acting like the Al Sharpton of the right. snip Bush has a daughter who, sadly, is a convicted drug abuser. When she passed out (as all drug abusers do), did he immediately call 911?

"Poor Terri had half a brain left, no chance to ever rehabilitate, no feelings, no thoughts, no way to tell everyone to leave her alone so she could see G-d (sic). It took 15 years but she did it no thanks to people like you," wrote Gloria whose email came from a generic hotmail account (picchetti707@hotmail.com)

    Urged by Terry Schiavo's brother, a Louisiana Senate panel Tuesday advanced a proposed law that would require keeping incapacitated people alive unless they previously said or wrote that they don't want feeding tubes. "Every life is sacred, and we should treat it that way," Schiavo's brother, Bobby Schindler, testified. Opponents said the legislation -- spawned by the national furor over the Schiavo case in Florida -- is government stepping in where families, with physicians, should be making the decisions. Before approving the measure, the Senate Judiciary A Committee voted 4-3 to require the state to pay medical bills if government...

    A prominent member of the Senate leadership recently described a Supreme Court justice as "a disgrace." An equally prominent member of the leadership of the House of Representatives on the other side of the political aisle has characterized another justice's approach to adjudication as "incredibly outrageous." These excoriations follow other examples of personalized attacks on members of the judiciary by senior political figures. So it is time to take a deep breath, step back, and inject a little perspective into the recent heated rhetoric about judges and the courts. We might start by getting a firm grip on the reality...

But while that may explain, it does not justify the flailing, sometimes delirious attacks on the judiciary mounted by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and others in the wake of the Terri Schiavo case.

There is no "letting her die" going on here, any more than we would be "letting" an infant die if we left him in his playpen and deprived him of food and water for 12 days. While debates have raged over whether such a death is euphoric or agonizing, humane or cruel, we should not blink at the fact that a killing is exactly what we have watched ever since Schiavo's feeding tube was removed on March 18.

    If anything good comes from the sad story of Terri Schiavo's life and death, it is that a brighter line has been drawn between the personal and the political. The Schiavo case is straightforward: A young woman's heart stopped beating in 1990, cutting off oxygen to her brain and destroying her cerebral cortex. Before this happened, according to her husband, who is her legal guardian, she said that, under such circumstances she would not want to be kept alive artificially. But she left no living will. Court-appointed doctors confirmed that she was in a "persistent vegetative state," kept alive by...

    Dear friends, The Terry Schiavo case is heart wrenching. But, once again we need to look beyond the apparent to find the linkages to the cultural conflicts that have been molding our society for many years. The liberal Democrats, with tremendously fancy arguments, want her to die. (Why not, they're for the death of the unborn as well). While the conservative Republicans, with simple arguments, want her to live. Some years ago Doctor Kevorkian argued for euthanasia, and didn't go very far, probably because his presentation was too harsh and did not attract the interest of the insurance companies and...

U.S. District Judge James Whittemore said the 41-year-old woman's parents had not established a "substantial likelihood of success" at trial on the merits of their arguments. So, unless the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta rule in favor of Terry, or she dials up Dominos Pizza fast, she may not make it.

    Agudath Israel to Michael Schiavo: "Spare Your Wife's Life" To: National Desk Contact: Rabbi Avi Shafran, Director of public affairs for Agudath Israel of America, 212-797-9000 NEW YORK, March 16 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Agudath Israel of America has issued a public plea to the husband of Terry Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman, to not remove the feeding tube keeping her alive. Circuit Court Judge George W. Greer ruled Thursday that there was no merit to an appeal to delay permission for Michael Schiavo to allow his wife to starve to death, in opposition to the wishes of the incapacitated...

    Alan Keyes is scheduled to appear on Michael Medved's show today to discuss the Terry Schiavo case. Medved frequently disagrees with Keyes, but not on this topic. According to the RenewAmerica site, Keyes will be appearing in the second hour of Michael's show which is broadcast live 3-6 Eastern / Noon-3 Pacific. Here is a list of stations where you can hear Michael's show. You can also hear him live on the web. I can't believe that I'm actually posting a Keyes thread.

    As an introduction, there is a local "conservative" talk show host in Philadelphia named Michael Smerconish. He calls himself conservative, but is even more liberal than Sean Hannity. He is always talking about things that bug him, and how the government ought to make laws against these common annoyances. Today, he actually said that Terry Schiavo's husband loved her and had her best interests in mind, and that he would want to die too if he were PVS like her. I was shocked, so I wrote this letter to him. It is important that we get ALL media talking the...

    Don't Kill the Baby... http://apnews.myway.com/article/20041130/D86MD4DG1.html Quote: AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - A hospital in the Netherlands - the first nation to permit euthanasia - recently proposed guidelines for mercy killings of terminally ill newborns, and then made a startling revelation: It has already begun carrying out such procedures, which include administering a lethal dose of sedatives. This has already been discussed somewhat at Wizbang and Blogs for Bush, but I wanted to add some commentary. At least with euthanasia an adult is making the decision for themselves (either via a will or because they are conscious and aware to do it)....

    Murder by Order of Judge George Greer Judge George Greer has ordered the murder of Terri Schiavo. Terri was brain damaged under mysterious circumstances a number of years ago. However, she is not in a coma. She's alive, awake, responsive – not in a persistent vegetative state - contrary to the claims of the judge. However, she is unable to feed herself, so the judge ordered the removal of her feeding tube, effectively condemning her to a painful death by dehydration. If you watch Terri Schiavo on video, you can see for yourself that she is responsive and not in...

    Dear Friend of Life, I pray that you will read the enclosed letter with a grateful, generous and charitable heart. My friend, Randall Terry, has just fought an extraordinary battle against the killing spirit of our times - and by God's grace, emerged victorious! Let me tell you what happened behind the scenes. While I was in Israel, a federal court decreed that Terri would die. My chief of staff, Mary Parker Lewis, contacted Randall Terry (Founder of Operation Rescue) and asked him to give his full attention and efforts to saving Terri's life. After he spoke with Terri's family,...

    Dear Concerned Citizen: As you may know, the Florida House recently led the fight to help save Terri Schiavo’s life from being cut short by court-ordered dehydration and starvation. We passed legislation, known as “Terri’s Law” to allow the Governor to issue a stay on court-ordered starvation and dehydration deaths under certain circumstances. Like many Floridians, I believe the process failed to protect Terri Schiavo and her family. Our action helps to restore a piece of what has been taken from her family. Unfortunately, Terri’s husband, Michael, has continued to pursue legal avenues to end Terri’s life. Terri’s case is...
