The Papers Are Ready

Sherri Exclusive : This just in!

Attorney Gibbs came out and said that he filed the required briefs with the federal court and they will be poised and ready to reinsert the feeding tube right away as the law is passed early in the morning. The House of Reps will meet at midnight and are expected to have about 40 mins of debate before the vote, Bush will be ready to sign, and then they can put the tube in!!!

Hat Tip to an Anonymous tipster in this thread:
The papers are available on

Specifically, the Original Petition, the Brief due to congressional action, and Supporting exhibits.

  • I called Rep Henry Waxman's DC office -- the voicemail was full. I hope he's paying attention! (In his case I rather doubt it. Frankly, I think he's a turd. Look at his Website and see why. But maybe he's smart enough to pay attention to his constituents, just this once.)

    I've been fasting on bread and water. My friend and I prayed together for Terri yesterday. Keep the faith!

    Yep, it was intended to go for her care, Michael cried big tears about wanting to get Terri therapy, got the money and then had a massive change of heart (it basically got stone cold), I will lay odds that some of that money has financed his life with a woman he is not married to along with their 2 kids.

    These are the same people that believe there exists no reason to fight for freedom. Yet, they gloat over the death of a woman.

  • Count this among the things I never knew. This is about the federal judge to be selected should the bill pass:

    A computer program randomly generates the presiding judge, who will be delivered the request for an injunction immediately.

    That's from the story. If ever there was an opportunity for a divine power to effect its will, a random number generator would be it.

    Also, I don't think it's fair to characterize everyone in the right-to-die movement as "gloating" over the death of a woman.

  • I absolutely agree that not everyone on either side of this very, very difficult case is either bad or good. There are decent, well meaning people on both sides and this is one of those cases where decent, reasonable people can differ. Unfortunately, the slimeballs ... on both sides of the political aisle ... have also descended upon this case like vultures on roadkill for an opportunity to further their political agenda,

    I also don't see it as a "right to die" case. I count myself firmly in the "right to die" camp. I am believe that adults in charge of their faculties should have an absolute right to decide if and when and even how they should end their own lives, especially if they are suffering. However, in this instance, I do not believe that it was established to any reasonable degree of certainty that Terri Schiavo does or even ever did want to die. I draw a clear and sharp distinction between an individual's right to die and an individual's guardian's right to kill them, which is what this case seems to be about.
