Saving Terri Schiavo

Terri Schiavo's Bill Clears Florida House Committees, House Votes Thursday

Life News

Tallahassee, FL - Legislation designed to protect Terri Schiavo and other disabled people who haven't indicated their wishes for medical treatment heads to the full Florida House after clearing its final committee hurdle. If passed, it could prevent Terri's estranged husband from starting a painful week-long starvation process that would ultimately kill her.

The House Health and Families Council Committee voted Tuesday morning in favor of HB 701.

The bill would prevent a legal guardian from allowing a person in a so-called persistent vegetative state to die by withholding food or water. That could only happen if the patient had previously issued an advance directive authorizing it to be withheld.

Although Terri is not in a persistent vegetative state, Florida courts have sided with Michael and ruled that she is in such a medical condition. As a result, the legislation would apply to Terri and prevent her death or the death of any similar patient...
I can't believe this issue is even an issue to begin with. How can people sit back and watch as a mentally challenged woman is starved to death only because her husband says that's what she would want? It's not like we're talking about pulling the plug on someone's life support, all they have to do is FEED the woman so she can continue to survive. If they kill this woman, what's next? Starving mentally challenged babies at birth because it's what their parents want? This whole situation makes me sick, I hope they can pass legislation to save her life.
