  • Ben Carson Won’t Apologize to Terri Schiavo’s Family After “Much Ado About Nothing” Quip

    11/24/2015 10:36:47 AM PST · by NKP_Vet · 14 replies ^ | November 24, 2015 | STEVEN ERTELT
    Pro-life Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson won’t meet with or apologize to Bobby Schindler, Terri Schiavo’s brother, about comments Carson made concerning the legislation Congress passed to help Terri Schiavo’s family try to save her life. As LifeNews reported, Carson thinks the federal and state governments overreached when they attempted to protect Terri Schiavo from a painful 14-day starvation and dehydration death. Despite the best efforts of pro-life lawmakers in Congress and the Florida state legislature, where lawmakers approved pro-life laws to allow Terri’s family to take their case to federal courts and to allow then-Governor Jeb Bush to try...
  • Terri Schiavo’s Brother: Why Won’t Ben Carson Condemn How My Sister Was Brutally Killed?

    Speaking to reporters at a Florida Republican Party conference recently, Dr. Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and candidate for the Republican nomination for President responded to a reporter’s question on whether he believed my sister Terri Schiavo deserved Congress’s intervention to stop her court-ordered 13-day death by starvation and dehydration. Dr. Carson’s response? “I think it was much ado about nothing.” Not only was his remark offensive to my family, but his words served to marginalize hundreds of thousands of medically vulnerable persons in jeopardy of being killed in the same barbaric manner that Terri was killed by starvation and...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 17, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - The words of Dr. Ben Carson, and the actions of Gov. Jeb Bush, disqualify them both from serving as president of the United States, a leading pro-life leader said today. "We have seen what it is like to have a president who does not value every life equally, and we certainly do not need another," said Troy Newman, the president of Operation Rescue. "In my opinion, Ben Carson's statement dismissing Terri's life as 'nothing,' and Jeb Bush's failure to take action to save Terri, has disqualified them both from the office of president."...

    Jeb Bush may be low-energy, but when it comes to Syrian refugees, he isn’t low-empathy. Unlike nearly all of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Bush said Tuesday that he would not support efforts to end refugee resettlement.“The answer to this is not to ban people from coming,” Bush told Bloomberg Television’s With All Due Respect. “The answer is to lead, to resolve the problem in Syria.”Bush emphasized that he wanted any refugees resettled in the United States to be rigorously vetted — which is already standard policy in the States — but said support for refugees was “a...

    So this is the world we live in now. Asked by the Huffington Post whether he would go back in time and kill baby Hitler, Jeb Bush said, "Hell yeah, I would! You gotta step up, man." But do you? Should you? Given certain assumptions, killing baby Hitler isn't a hard question. Assume that going back in time merely eliminates Hitler, and that the sole effect of that is that the Nazi Party lacks a charismatic leader and never takes power in Germany, and World War II and the Holocaust are averted, and nothing worse than World War II transpires...

Mr. Bush, the former Florida governor, called such a move wrongheaded and futile. I am against the government shutdown. Thats not how democracy works, he said during an interview on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. He said such a tactic would not succeed in stripping Planned Parenthood of federal funds under President Obama. Mrs. Fiorina,...

    When asked to pinpoint where Jeb Bushs presidential effort began running into trouble, many confidants utter a single word: Dallas. Mike Murphy, Bushs political alter ego, decided early on to hold regular senior staff meetings at an unusual location: a Hyatt hotel inside the terminal at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The idea was that it was a central and relatively inexpensive gathering place for a team scattered from Los Angeles, where Murphy lives, to Miami, where the would-be candidate resides. It went fine at first but quickly became an awkward routine. Donors and other Republicans found the setup ungainly for...

"It was inspiring to learn from our domestic violence leaders about the transforming process that Iowa implemented to maximize limited financial resources while creating a regional-based comprehensive service delivery program for domestic violence survivors and their children," she wrote.

    His latest attempt to clarify his stance on the Iraq war all seems very clumsy and awkward for a man who wants to be president. President George W Bush had a speaking problem with his well-documented Bushisms. His father was not immune either, once telling surprised listeners that Ronald Reagan and he had "had some sex", before correcting himself to say he had meant "setbacks". Jeb Bush seems to have inherited the same problem, but a hearing disorder, too. "I'm running for president in 2016," the former Florida governor let slip in Nevada on Wednesday before hastily adding an "if"....

    It is nearly axiomatic that presidential contests tend to shine a harsh light on conservative Christians inasmuch as they are viewed as the Republican Partys base and are, therefore, deemed fair game. Of course, religious folks come in a variety of stripes, checks and polka dots. Many are Democrats. But it is the members of the Christian right evangelicals and Catholics, especially who are treated every four years to the sneers of lefties, academics, proud atheists (allow me to quote myself: Theres no dogma like no dogma) and certain but not all media.

Looking to win over skeptical evangelical voters, Jeb Bush pushed back Saturday against what he said are modern intrusions on religion as he lauded graduates and their families at Liberty University, a Christian college popular on the path to the Republican presidential nomination. Fashionable ideas and opinions which these days can be a religion all by itself have got a problem with Christians and their right of conscience, Bush told an audience of 34,000 in the schools football stadium. That makes it our problem, and the proper response is a forthright defense of the first...

Nonetheless, she received her death sentence ordered by Circuit Court Judge, George W. Greer of Pinellas County Florida. Greers order to remove Terris feeding tube was in response to her estranged husband and guardian, Michael Schiavo, requesting permission from the court to kill his disabled wife....

For years, the self-described average Joe felt harassed, targeted and tormented by the most important person in the state. It was a living hell, he said, and I blame him. Michael Schiavo was the husband of Terri Schiavo, the brain-dead woman from the Tampa Bay area who ended up at the center of one of the most contentious, drawn-out conflicts in the history of Americas culture wars. The fight over her death lasted almost a decade. It started as a private legal...

I dont think itll be like a big internal straw poll, said his son, Jeb Bush Jr. But if there were, the results of the poll are pretty much in. As Mr. Bush nears a decision to become the third member of his storied family to seek the presidency, the extended Bush clan and its attendant network, albeit with one prominent exception, are largely rallying...
  • Scientists have found hidden brain activity that can indicate if a vegetative patient is aware

    The new research could help doctors to quickly identify patients who are aware despite appearing unresponsive and unable to communicate. Researchers from University of Cambridge in the UK have identified hidden networks in vegetative patients that could support consciousness, even when a patient appear to be unresponsive. Theres been a lot of interest lately into how much patients in vegetative states, such as comas, are aware of their surroundings. Recently, research involving functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanning has shown that even patients who are unable to respond or move are able to carry out mental tasks, such as imagining...

    Aside from the misleading claim in the article referring to my sister, Terri Schiavo, as being in a persistent vegetative state (PVS), the Boston Globe did a wonderful follow-up story on Haleigh Poutres tragic situation.Back in 2006, Haleigh made national news when her stepfather beat her into a coma. It was just a short time subsequent to this act of violence that her doctors decided this 13-year old had zero chance to recover and her legal guardian went to the courts for permission to remove Haleighs life sustaining care.In fact, if Haleigh would have happened to survive the removal of...

    Marlise Munoz FORT WORTH, Texas, January 24, 2013 ( – A Texas judge has ordered a hospital to remove Marlise Munoz, 33, who is 22-weeks pregnant, from life support, in accordance with her husband’s wishes. While removing life support would lead to the death of the baby, the judge pointed out that if Munoz was conscious she could legally choose to abort the baby, given that the baby has not yet reached the legal stage of viability, usually defined as 24 weeks. “As I understand the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court that if this fetus were not viable [and] Ms....

    Syracuse, NY - Doctors at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center were about to remove organs for transplant from a woman they thought was dead. Then she opened her eyes. She was alive. The state Health Department found St. Joe's care of patient Colleen S. Burns in 2009 unacceptable and a federal agency criticized the hospital for not properly investigating the cause. The hospital's mishandling of the case was part of the reason the state Health Department fined St. Joe's $22,000 last September... A series of mistakes that began shortly after Burns arrived in the emergency room suffering from a drug...

    Jeb Bush will present Hillary Clinton with the 2013 Liberty Medal this fall in Philadelphia. It could be an awkward encounter for the two, both of whom are mentioned as 2016 presidential nominees for their respective parties. Bush, the former Republican governor of Florida, is chairman of the National Constitution Center, which is giving Clinton the award in honor of her career in public service and her advocacy efforts on behalf of women. The former secretary of State is considered the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination in the next presidential election, but has made no political moves since leaving the...

    In an exclusive sit-down interview with The Brody File, Jeb Bush began to sketch out his case for President of the United States if he decides to run next year. It will be based on my record. And that record was one of solving problems from completely from a conservative perspective. I cut taxes every year, I shrunk the size of government, Jeb Bush tells The Brody File. And as for his critics who say hes too mainstream establishment he offers this: I will be able to, I think, manage my way through all the chirpers out there. We sat...

    REMEMBRANCE of EASTER 2005 Crowd my eyes, you bevies of daffodils, And you forsythias in throngs of cheer, Dandelion galaxies and fountains of trees. Fill my mouth with the breath of hyacinths, you purple air And you roistering breeze. And you quince-buds so eager, you swelling seeds, You squirrels running stitches across the loom Of woven grasses, inflorescent weeds; Jasmine-bush, loop me with your lariats of perfume. Fill me, small birds, with your versicles, And chuckled replies. She is bleeding from the mouth and eyes. Sate me then, Sun, all dapple and spangle Crowd out all else Lade me and...

    As Holy Week begins and we reflect on the passion of Jesus Christ, it is especially appropriate to remember another person who eight years ago at this time was subjected to a tortuous, brutal and heinous death one whose anniversary falls this year on Easter Sunday: Terri Schindler-Schiavo. And just as the Church now ushers in our new Pope Francis, I am reminded how two days after Terris death we also lost our Holy Father. As Pope John Paul II lay dying at the Vatican his aides would later tell the Schindlers that when he learned of Terris death,...
