URGENT ACTION ALERT

Topics: Action Items

This is an urgent congressional action alert from the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) in Washington, D.C., issued Friday, March 18, 2005, at noon EST. For further information, visit the NRLC website.

Please forward this message to your own lists.

URGE SENATORS, REPRESENTATIVES TO RESOLVE DIFFERENCES, PASS 'TERRI'S LAW' IMMEDIATELY

Both the House and Senate have now passed bills that would give the Schindlers the opportunity to have their claims that their daughter's starvation violates her federal constitutional and statutory rights heard in a federal court. Unfortunately, the bills have significant differences in content. Both houses must pass the same version in order for the bill to be signed by the President and put into effect to save Terri.

Now, your help is needed TODAY to contact your Senators and Representatives and urge them to do whatever is necessary to resolve the differences between the two chambers and get a bill that will save Terri to the President’s desk before it is too late.

PLEASE ACT NOW! Under court order, Terri's feeding tube is scheduled to be removed at 1:00 pm EST today, Friday, March 18.

Contact your senators and U.S. representative. Simply type your zip code in the "Take Action Now" box.

Time is precious! Only a massive outpouring from constituents will move legislators to act quickly enough to give Terri her chance at life.

Read the text of the House-passed bill (H.R. 1332).

Read the text of the Senate-passed bill (S. 653).

WILLisms.com is a blogg that has hit real close to home. His aunt nancy has been in a similiar condition as Terri for over 2 decades.
Michael Schiavo recieved 1.7 million dollars in a malpractice case for Terri! He now claims there is no money. He obviously has misused those funds.

WHY HAS MICHAEL SCHIAVO'S GUARDIANSHIP NOT BEEN REVOKED? HE HAS MOVED ON WITH HIS LIFE AND CREATED A NEW FAMILY!
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP TERRI!

We have heard nothing from the Carter Center or Libary re: President Jimmy Carter's position on this matter. He was president prior to the popularity of the culture of death in America.

He works for international human rights. Why the silence? He has not been silent on the death penalty.

The only contact information I have:
mailto:carterweb@emory.edu
for the Carter Center and
mailto:carter.library@nara.gov
for the Carter Library

Does anyone else have any other contact information?

For the simple reason that no dictator is threatened. Those in power even if previously only care about others in power. Jimmy allowed Americans to die in Beirut and Tehran and those were Americans working for him. What do you expect Jimmah to do for a lone woman who can't even put her mark on a vote?
