Tallahassee, FL (LifeNews.com) — The president of the Florida state Senate says he now regrets allowing a vote on the law that helped Terri Schiavo stay alive. Last October, after a judge granted Terri’s estranged husband Michael permission to remove Terri’s feeding tube, the Florida legislature passed Terri’s Law giving Governor Jeb Bush the ability to ask doctors to reinsert it.
Senate President Jim King now says he wishes he hadn’t voted for the measure. He told the St. Petersburg Times that voting for the bill was “probably one of the worst votes that I’ve ever done.”
Saving a life is the worst vote he has ever made? I would hate to know what he considers this best vote. Mr. King is from Jacksonville and I think that my having voted for him might have been one of the dumbest things I have ever done, it won’t happen again.
