Terri Schiavo will die: No hope left - Jackson Admits Failure in Florida Schiavo EffortTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
What a sad and disgusting state of affairs in Florida. Again, the Florida Senate fails Terri Schiavo and by doing so fully endorses her death by judicial fiat. I am trully sorry for ever having served what this country has become. Through their inaction the Florida Senate has made it clear that they support the euthanasia of disabled, infirmed, and elderly persons - those voiceless human beings(Useless Eaters) now endangered by the floodgate of "death by judicial fiat and committee" that has now been opened. George Felos, the death culture in America, and the guardianship racket in Florida have all been made ecstatic by their failure to act.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson admitted Wednesday afternoon that his efforts to persuade the Florida state Senate to vote on a new bill to save Terri Schiavo have failed.
"They are convinced that guardianship [of Terri] is in the hands of Michael [Schiavo] and the courts," Jackson told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity.

Hyscience, my heart is breaking, too. But please don't regret your service to this country. It was honorable and just. You protected us "Against all enemies, foreign and domestic", right? Well, right now, the country is in the grip of enemies domestic. We'll have to fight to recapture it. Terri is another innocent casualty, like the 300 victims in the World Trade Center on 9/11, who died because we were unprepared for the enemy to strike.

300 should be 3000, of course. I missed a zero.

God help us. Mel Gibson said on Hannity "We are going to see worse than this". I believe he's right. The Book of Revelation has turned a page. God help us.

Referring to the headline above "Terry will Die": I sincerely hope Jesse Jackson didn't say this. His failure to pursuade the FL courts does not equate to Terri dying. Mr. Jackson is a man of faith to whom a miracle is not outside of his realm of possibilities. Personally, I will continue to hold vigil and maintain hope as long as Terri continues to breath.

Do they have the death penalty in Florida? If Terry has the right to life, so do all God's children. Americans are such hypocrites. How many death warrants did your pro-life president sign when he was governor of Texas?

David, please do not confuse the issue of the death penalty with this case.
This is not an ordinary case of being able to establish the innocence of a particular person who has committed a crime. This is a case of spousal abuse combined with judicial approval to kill.
There is a difference between someone being sentenced to die by lethal injection and someone to die via starvation and dehydration. The condemned prisoner has a much easier exit from this life than a severely disabled person who has not been given the right to speak up for herself.
I do not believe that GW Bush has been in the slightest bit hypocritical over his comments about erring on the side of life.
Condemned prisoners have more rights established under the Constitution of the United States, especially through the appeal system that is open to them, than the disabled.
It is sickening to hear how the rights of the disabled are being trampled by able bodied family members who have become tired of looking after them.
