Florida Senate Rejects Bill To Save Terri

Topics: Legislative Action Items


The Florida Senate has rejected the bill that could save Terri Schiavo's life, according to FOX News. Additionally, the 11th District has turned down the Schindler's motion.

Call, email, shout, smoke signals, whatever it takes - contact the Governor and ask him to take Terri into protective custody, now.

Update from the Associated Press:

The Florida Senate rejected a bill Wednesday to keep Terri Schiavo alive, turning back an attempt to resolve the contentious end-of-life debate with a state law, as legislators did in 2003.

The bill would have prohibited patients like Schiavo from being denied food and water if they didn't express their wishes in writing. The 21-18 vote came five days after her feeding tube was removed under court order.
