URGENT REPOST-Action Requested: Florida HB 701 Email Support Needed

Topics: Action Items


Call to all "BlogsforTerri" and those blogging for Terri. Urgent that all Florida residents know about HB 701.

The document can be downloaded here. This is one of the bills that can help Terri. Get the word passed around to everyone in Fl. If you are a blogger in Florida, please immediately and with urgency help get this to church and community groups to help get the word out. If you live outside Fl., please help drum-up email support for Rep. Baxley. Massive telephone calls to Rep, Baxley and other Representatives are also needed.

Please get this information circulated. It is paramount that all Floridians contact their reps either email or phone on this bill, and let them know how you stand. Discuss with your neighbors, encourage them to call and email their reps, and pass this info around.

We have very little time left. As you read through this bill, realize this will protect the incapacitated. Hearsay and casual conversation will not be enough to starve and dehydrate a person to death in this state if this passes. Protecting the vulnerable, the brain injured, the elderly, those with disabilities will benefit from this bill.

Please contact Rep Baxley and give him a big thanks for sponsoring.

Email and call Your Representative: Florida House Of Representatives


The links are also a source of contact for all of the Florida Legislators.

Let's all pray the Divine Mercy chaplet , or say a simple prayer at 3:00 pm for Terri and her family; that God will give her strength for the days to come, faith that His will is perfect and; she is protected under His wing; for all who oppose euthanasia and murder of innocent people, that they will see their sin like God see it, and repent.
God help us all ~
God bless you all~

Given the topsy turvy state of the Florida court system, why is it so difficult to find a court that would grant Terri's parents custodial rights protecting her from someone who is trying to kill her?
The custodians could then file for a divorce on her behalf. Whether this wins or not will at least allow it to be bogged down in the system for many years to come.

This case of judicial tyranny by Florida courts is an embarrassment to the community of nations. The United States for several decades has been boycotting and embargoing countries for their human rights policies. Well, they are all laughing at us right now. We have two former presidents stomping around Indonesia crying for us to donate money (we've already donated 1.4 billion). We are treating them to the human rights the United States doesn't its own.

Countries across the globe are watching to see if the United States is actually going to execute by deliberate starvation/dehydration one of its own citizens who other than needing food and water is quite healthy, though disabled (isn't that called genocide). They will spit on us the next time we call on them to comply with human rights, and I don't blame them.

Iraq, where we have over 150,000 troops to protect the rights of Iraqi citizens are not capable of protecting the rights of even a single US citizen. They are supposedly fighting terrorism there to keep it from being exported here. Well, I have news for them. We have domestic terrorism right here and right now. When a judiciary can execute a person whose only crime is being an inconvenience to her spouse, especially since the choice is death or a life surrounded by unconditional love, then we should all be very afraid.

Domestic terrorism is alive and well in the judicial system of the State of Florida.

Save Terris life.

Posted by: Terry Lindsay at March 4, 2005 10:27 PM

This is could only be called legalized murder,
to starve a human to death.
What kind of a man(?),dog (?) or whatever Michael Shiavo is, would stoop so low?

im reminded of one of the wisest judges in the bible. king solomon when faced with the dilemma of deciding who a child really belonged to said he would cut off the babies head and divide the baby between the two mothers. of course the real mother said "let him live, give him to her." when a conflict of interest affects the life of someone surely the right to choose should come to the ones who would have the greater love for this person. may God help us save Terri!

Does any on e remember the little 9 year old that was killed? I don't see anybody pushing for a bill to stop sex offenders. I don't see congress called in for it either. So has far as I'm concerned if the little 9 year old's life doesn't matter that much then who cares if she dies.
