Rep. Weldon on DaySide with Linda Vester

Topics: Legislative Action Items

Florida congressman and medical doctor, Representative Dave Weldon (R), appeared on DaySide with Linda Vester this afternoon to explain his Incapacitated Persons' Life Protection Act, which you can read more about here. In just a few short moments Rep. Weldon clearly explained several of the key issues in Terri's case, including emphatic and repeated statements that Terri Schiavo is not in a coma or persistent vegetative state. His bill would insure that incapacitated persons be appointed a lawyer to represent them as their cases are reviewed in the Federal Courts before any starvation and dehydration orders are carried out.

Representative Weldon was not optimistic that congress will act fast enough on this bill to save Terri Schiavo before March 18. This is where we can make a difference! Write or call your congressional representative and your senators and urge them to do what he or she can to have this matter brought quickly to the floor for a vote.

By coincidence I saw the interview this afternoon. He was very succinct and well spoken. I was not impressed however, with Fox's running stream of type on the screen, one statement which said Terri was in a "coma-like state..." Comments like these keep the public misinformed about her true condition. 1thess517.blogspot.com

Unfortunately, Terry's case seems to have fallen into the political cracks of today's partisan politics. I.E. Conservatives not wanting government "interference in our private lives" and liberals not wanting to give and edge to anything resembling the "right to life." I urge the justices to get over this ideological (bs) and just do what their hearts and consciences tell them is morally correct. I definately support erring on the side of life - not death. I also feel that Terry deserves the chance to at least have an MRI, and that her custody should be given to those who are closest to her and willing to care for her in "sickness and in health" - i.e., her parents. An unsubstantiated "off the cuff" remark at age 26 should not be the final word in a life or death situation 15 years later.
