Senate/House Leadership Urged to Pass 'Terri Schiavo's Law' on MondayTopics: Legislative Action Items
Christian Coalition of America on March 18 urged the House and Senate leadership to pass the "Terri Schiavo Law" on Monday, whether it be the House bill passed unanimously or the Senate bill also passed unanimously. Christian Coalition commends the actions by the Senate and House leadership to hold hearings and to issue subpoenas for Terri Schiavo's husband, Michael Schiavo, and her caregivers to appear before congressional committees in a few days.
Majority Leader Tom DeLay in a 1 p.m. Friday press conference said that Senators Boxer, Wyden, and Levin "have put Terri Schiavo's life in danger because of petty squabbles." Senator Mike Enzi, (R-WY), has requested that Terri Schiavo herself testify before his Health, Education, Labor, and Pension (HELP) Committee.
President Bush said he would sign a bill approved by both the House and the Senate. Unfortunately, the Senate Democrat Minority Leader, Harry Reid, (NV) and Democrat Senators Ron Wyden, (OR), Barbara Boxer (CA) and Carl Levin (MI) still representing the views of many in the "party of death" have refused to allow a vote on the Sensenbrenner/Weldon bill passed unanimously in the U.S. House on Wednesday night.
Time is of the essence. Terri Schiavo's husband, Michael Schiavo removed Terri's feeding tube today. This act will cause Terri Schiavo to suffer an extremely painful death over a 2-week period. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's office said congressional lawyers will appeal to the Florida Circuit Court of Appeals to reinstate the feeding tubes of Terri Schiavo.
Here are the Action Items that need to be accomplished immediately:
Please keep the above issue in your prayers. Through prayer great and mighty things can be accomplished.
