Court of Appeals Rules Against Terri's Life (Updated)Topics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
The 11th District Court of Appeals has ruled against reinserting Terri's feeding tube. Murder by judicial fiat is legal in the State of Florida. The right-to-die has become the right to kill.
Reported on a Fox News Alert. Details:
ATLANTA (AP) -- A federal appeals court refused early Wednesday to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, denying an emergency request by the severely brain-damaged woman's parents.
The three-judge panel ruled 2-1 to deny the request, a day after a federal judge in Florida also refused a similar appeal.
Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, vowed yet another appeal Wednesday.
"The Schindlers will be filing an appropriate appeal to save their daughter's life," said Rex Sparklin, an attorney with the law firm representing the parents.
Update: Associated Press Article
Update 2 - if you want to help, call the 7 senators in the extended post ASAP.
Update 3 - Captain's Quarters offers that the failure of the federal courts to acknowledge the demand from Congress for a de novo consideration of the case will result in the killing of a non-terminal disabled person who left no instructions on her care other than a offhand comment after a movie remembered suddenly years later by her husband. He continues that the federal court has instead decided to disregard the clear language and intent of the emergency bill passed by Congress and abstain from a new process of finding fact in Terri's case. In doing so, they will allow a non-terminal, disabled woman to die a slow death on the word of an estranged husband and his years-long repressed memory - the first federal endorsement of euthanasia, a precedent setting case that will allow for the disposal of many such disabled people in the future.

Not to be crass...............but do you suppose FOX News will instruct Sean Hannity to strike a deal with the Schindlers for the remains of Terri for the purpose of actually taking the body to the Senate floor and let "Captain Bill" finally make his "expert" analysis on this matter so he could at least say."I told you so"?I can see it now,minion Hannity and Fox crew circumvent CSpan and shut em down so they can have the "Exclusive" rights on the autopsy.Not without senator Frists exhorbitant fee paid upfront by medicaire cuts first though.HYPOCRITS,each and all........The "Republican" party has died by its own hand.Good riddance
