Email From Bobby Schindler: Blogs Please Swarm Need For Habeas Corpus Protection For TerriTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
- via Email received from Bobby Schindler minutes ago:
Since this Bill is going to be introduced tomorrow in Washington, please ask Terri's bloggers to swarm the need of emphasizing the importantance of this legislation in saving her life.
The US Congress will consider a bill titled the Incapacitated Person's Legal Protection Act on Tuesday, March 8, 2005 . This bill, if signed into law, would entitle incapacitated persons to the federal review of their rights (known as habeas corpus) and would help ensure that they have been fairly represented. You can encourage your representative to give favorable consideration of this act. Habeas corpus protections are currently available to the worst convicted criminals; this new law would make it clear that disabled Americans are entitled to at least as much legal protection.
Please contact your representative in the US House of Representatives immediately and plead for their support of this legislation on behalf of Terri and all incapacitated persons.

Argue Terri should be allowed to be asked this question and her reply can be
"detected." Communication is not limited to speech, and she may be able to
convey a reply . ... That her wishes of NOW negate, Michaels purpose.
Has anyone asked Terri if she wanted to live or die since the event happened?
Since she has been incapacitated. Please have her tube reinserted and
rescusitate her so that she can can be asked this question and conduct all the
new technological tests to "detect" her reply as of NOW.
This way if she is in there, any reply by any means, to any yes or no, or
increased sparking in her brain scans etc...we would be able to determine what
her wishes directly from her, as at now. So as not to rely on what she said
casually 15 years ago, when she may be able to deliver a reply to this question
of her care and LIFE as it is now. It seems to me that Michael Shiavo considers
that she has been dead for years, but not gone. Much of the goingsd on are
misappropriation of facts and laws and have missed the point by the pleadings,
and not asking her.
If Terri Shiavo has any cognitive capacity SHE MUST BE ASKED, AND SHE MUST BE
GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO REPLY.
In that you are bound by your pleadings please see that these are not
addressing the specific argument of the husband that has been prevailing.
This would address these issues specifically of her will, (which must be buried
in there somewhere) as may be different than represented by Michael and
she should have the opportunity to be heard and give her an opportunity for a
successful hearing based on her issues and her own ability to deliver a reply
to a specific question, YET TO BE ASKED OF HER!
She isn't dead, and the disabled can communicate their own way...so she can
give her own reply.
AS YOU KNOW ALL THIS MUST BE THE ARGUMENT TO THE COURT, couldn't it?
