House Unanimously Passes 'Terri's Law II'

Topics: News

WASHINGTON, March 17 /Christian Wire Service/
Christian Coalition of America commends the United States House of Representatives for unanimously passing "Terri's Law II" late Wednesday night which will effectively save the life of Terri Schiavo in Florida where she was scheduled to be starved to death on Friday.

Christian Coalition especially commends the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Jim Sensenbrenner, (R-WI) and Congressman Dave Weldon, (R-FL), both authors of "Terri's Law II" and House leaders, Speaker Dennis Hastert and Majority Leader Tom DeLay, (R-TX) for fast-tracking this critically important bill. Chairman Sensenbrenner teamed up with Congressman Weldon to sponsor "The Protection of Incapacitated Persons Act of 2005" (which replaced the "Incapacitated Persons Legal Protection Act of 2005" sponsored by Congressman Weldon).

Christian Coalition activists are urged to immediately contact both of your Senators and urge them to vote for the Sensenbrenner/Weldon House bill when it reaches the Senate floor most likely on Thursday. Senator Mel Martinez, (R-FL) has sponsored the Senate bill, S. 539, the counterpart to the Weldon bill. It is anticipated that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, (R-TN), will bring the just-passed House bill to save Terri Schiavo's life directly to the Senate floor today.
