The staff at RenewAmerica have posted an article placing the buck exactly where it should be: Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Speaking of Gov. Bush, I received this reply to an email I sent him last week concerning Terri.
Thank you for contacting Governor Bush to ask for his help in the case of Terri Schiavo. He has asked me to respond on his behalf.
The Governor shares your concern for this young woman and has pledged to do whatever he can within the laws of Florida to protect her life. The next few weeks will be very difficult ones for Ms. Schiavo, her family and all of those who care about her. The Governor asks that you keep her and her family in your prayers during this difficult time.
Again, thank you for writing Governor Bush about this important issue.

There is still much the governor can do that is within the laws of Florida. But, even if the law did say that women should be starved to death, the governor should stand against it. No law can make right what God has declared wrong.
A blogging doctor notes multiple serious unanswered questions about Terri’s medical diagosis based on the CT scan.
Finally, the Rev. Robert Johansen has written a critical review of Terri’s medical diagnosis. He points out the fact that the so-called expert medical witness in Terri’s case only spent a few hours evaluating her condition. That doctor has also previously diagnosed patients as being in persistent vegetative state who could physically maneuver their own wheelchairs or follow instructions to sort sizes and colors.
This house of cards we live in–how long before it falls?
Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy.
