Email From Bobby Schindler: Blogs Please Swarm Need For Habeas Corpus Protection For Terri

Topics: Action Items

- 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.
