Terri Schiavo Bill Becomes Law

In the middle of the night last night, the government of this country proved that maybe, just maybe, it not only has a conscience, but the guts enough to act on that conscience.

Members of Congress rushed back to Washington for a rare weekend session to vote on the emergency bill backed by the Bush administration which cleared the Senate on a voice vote Sunday and the House - in a 203-58 vote - shortly after midnight.

"In cases like this one, where there are serious questions and substantial doubts, our society, our laws, and our courts should have a presumption in favor of life," said President Bush, in a written statement issued as he signed the bill.

"This presumption is especially critical for those like Terri Schiavo who live at the mercy of others," said Mr. Bush. "I appreciate the bipartisan action by the Members of Congress to pass this bill. I will continue to stand on the side of those defending life for all Americans, including those with disabilities."

If we do not, as a society, put an end to this kind of killing--especially in cases where the victim cannot speak for themselves--then we will place ourselves squarely on a downhill slide where nothing is beyond reason. We will have become Nazi Germany. We will at that point no longer care who we kill, so long as it's in the name of "mercy" and "dignity." The elderly who gave us life, who worked long hours to put us through school, who loved and cared for us and saw to it that we had enough in life--they will no longer matter, especially if they cannot care for themselves any longer. Kill them.

The mentally handicapped who are just not up to speed, and who need to be cared for--kill them. It's the only "merciful" thing to do, after all.

Europe is already doing this, folks. Your baby was born very ill? Kill it.

Organizations like P.E.T.A. cannot defend animals enough--they claim to be the voice of the voiceless, and are upheld as shining examples of caring humanity by those on the left. The same left who scream themselves hoarse that a voiceless human woman must die. And when someone on the right dares to defend voiceless humans, they're "interfering" and whatever law they sign will be blocked at every turn as "unconstitutional." (That was perhaps my favorite spin this past weekend--that it's "unconstitutional" to defend someone's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I wonder how they sleep at night...)

And Michael Schiavo--what does he have to say? Well, he's "outraged" that Congress has dared to step in to defend his wife's right to keep breathing. Outraged. Again, I'm reminded of the principal who last week was "incredibly alarmed" not that a teacher made my daughter cry, but that I would dare to speak up in my child's defense. You won't hear speech like this from the majority of the left when it comes to defending human life. They aren't "outraged" when life is taken, unless it's the lives of Iraqi insurgents--then they're plenty outraged. They aren't incredibly alarmed that someone like Michael Schiavo--please read the fact sheet I posted--would demand that his wife be killed. Again, I have to wonder where the "outrage" would be if the woman in question was Teresa Kerry instead of Theresa Schiavo.

Oh, and Michael has one more thing to add, for those people who watched videos of Terri interacting with her parents:

"Anybody that thinks that she talks and responds, they need to have a mental health examination," he said.
