TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Lawmakers sent Gov. Jeb Bush a bill Tuesday that will give him the power to order a feeding tube reinserted into a brain-damaged woman who is at the center of one of the nation’s longest and most bitter right-to-die battles.
Bush said he will immediately sign the legislation – a victory for Terri Schiavo’s parents, who have been fighting for several years to keep her alive. Her husband, Michael Schiavo, says she would rather die.
…The House approved the bill 73-24 after the Senate passed it 23-15.
Hopefully this was done in time. It definitely looks like the prayers, emails, phone calls have turned the tide in this case. Getting the Florida legislature to put together a bill and pass it without it being one that increased their salaries is a miracle indeed. Now we can turn our prayers towards the conversions of Michael Schiavo, his lawyer and the Florida judiciary.
Thank you Jeb Bush and I am proud to have you as my Governor. I have sent an email to Jeb. Bush and my representatives thanking them for the passage of this bill and I would encourage you to do the same. My representative Jennifer Caroll is solidly pro-life.
