    (CNN)A beautiful boy born 11 months ago is dying in London. The world watches as his parents battle to keep their child alive. Courts will not allow the hospital to release the baby, Charlie Gard, into the parents' custody so they can travel to try an experimental treatment. Across the ocean, many people are appalled or confused, and wondering: Could a similar situation happen in the United States? "It's an absolutely horrific situation," said Claire Fenton-Glynn, a legal scholar at the University of Cambridge. Yet according to some medical ethicists, similar cases happen all the time. The case of Charlie...

    FULL TITLE: Terri Schiavo Archives: A Permanent Place at Ave Maria University for Learning Terri Schiavo's Historic Story PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 18, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ -- Terri Schiavo's 2005 death by starvation and dehydration marked the start of America's slide toward treating euthanasia generally, and assisted suicide specifically, as if they were forms of medicine. Knowing the true story of Terri's fight is important for understanding the roots of America's culture of death. Since Terri Schiavo's death, her parents and siblingsMary and Robert Schindler, and siblings Bobby and Suzannehave envisioned a supportive, permanent home for the public records that tell the...

    Full title: In the nuttiest reach yet, Juan Williams blames Trump for Hillarys collapse; shes afraid to hydrate because . . .Juan Williams made the ultimate stretch in an attempt to somehow blame Donald Trump for Hillary Clintons collapse on Sunday. On Tuesdays episode of The Five on Fox News, Williams was discussing an interview in which former President Bill Clinton told CBS This Morning anchor Charlie Rose his wife frequently found herself severely dehydrated. Clinton did quickly correct himself to say it did not happen frequently but on more than one occasion. Williams found a way to stretch like...
  • Florida Catholic bishop: It is religion, including our own, that targets LGBT people

    Second, sadly it is religion, including our own, that targets, mostly verbally, and often breeds contempt for gays, lesbians and transgender people. Attacks today on LGBT men and women often plant the seed of contempt, then hatred, which can ultimately lead to violence. *** Even before I knew who perpetrated the mass murders at Pulse, I knew that somewhere in the story there would be a search for religion as motivation. While deranged people do senseless things, all of us observe and judge and act from some kind of religious background. Singling out people for victimization because of their religion,...

    Terri Schiavo. Her name my sisters name is seared into the national memory as a face of the right-to-life movement, but its now been more than a decade since her death. Many are now too young to remember her witness, or they have forgotten. At the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home alone with Michael Schiavo, who subsequently became her guardian. After a short period of time, Michael lost interest in caring for his brain-injured but otherwise young and healthy wife. Terri was cognitively disabled, but she was not dying, and she did...

    WARNING: This article from Terri Schiavos brother Bobby Schindler contains a graphic image, below, that may be unsettling for readers. On March 18, 2005, my sister, Terri Schiavo, began her thirteen day agonizing death after the feeding tube supplying her food and water was removed. Terri was cognitively disabled and had difficulty swallowing and therefore needed a feeding tube. Terri was not on any life support, nor was she sick or dying. 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...

    We began discussing this last night when the tragic news broke about the death of Justice Scalia, and as predicted the question has caught fire already. The President already said he will be nominating someone, but will the Senate take up the question while he is still in office? We have the answer from several presidential candidates already and one of them is Jeb Bush. It's really not that important to him.

    It's 11 AM on Saturday morning in Bedford, New Hampshire, and Jeb Bush's staff has a problem: A police officer is saying that that McKelvie Intermediate School has reached its maximum occupancy. Hundreds of people-many wearing Bush '88 hats and W pins, the merch of a dynasty-have squeezed into the school's auditorium to see the latest Bush to seek the presidency speak. Other supporters are stuck outside, cheering the former Florida governor's "Safer, Stronger, Freer America" bus as it rolled in. While Bush takes selfies with the stragglers, Tom Ridge appears onstage inside. -snip- These aren't great times to be...

    His campaign is in overdrive. The family cavalry is en route. It may not be enough. The pundits think he's nearing the end. His donors are itching to jump ship. But Jeb Bush thinks he's about to take the first step toward an unlikely comeback. "You don't have to listen to the pundits," Bush told voters here. "In fact, you'll figure it out for the pundits." The Bush campaign enters its last day before New Hampshire votes with the single aim of delivering a top-five performance that justifies pushing south, where they say they believe a better organization and a...

    My life changed forever when I was a young man on an exchange program in León Guanajuato, Mexico. Across a plaza, I saw a girl. For me, it was love at first sight. From the moment I got to know her, I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. In the years ahead, whether I was changing baby diapers in Caracas, Venezuela, building a business in Miami or leading a state in Tallahassee, Columba has been with me, my best friend in all of life’s challenges and joys. Together, we have built a family...

    Jeb Bush, trailing badly in polls here and itching to get to New Hampshire, used his farewell Iowa campaign event to ask caucus-goers to do what he couldn't: Stop Donald Trump. "You have a chance to define the next stage of this race," Bush told a ballroom full of supporters in an Embassy Suites hotel on Monday afternoon. "I'm counting on you and I trust you." The former Florida governor has essentially conceded Iowa, where polls show him in the low single digits. Bush will not be holding a caucus night party, instead leaving the state this afternoon for New...

    The Right to Rise super PAC helping Jeb Bush is airing an ad in South Carolina that features a photo of Terri Schiavo, the brain dead Pinellas County woman, who died 10 years ago despite Bush's efforts to halt the removal of her feeding tubes. The ad features a picture of Mrs. Schiavo as well as an image of what appears to be someone at the vigil outside her hospice holding a Jeb! campaign sign. Says the narrator: "He's a man of deep faith who fought time and again for the right to life."

    Presidential candidate Jeb Bush continued on Monday to attack Donald Trump as a "bully" who has thrived by exploiting the country's divisions, telling reporters in his home state that "people are latching onto him because life's not good right now." "Donald Trump divides us in all of our disparate parts," said the former Florida governor. "He insults people, and he garners the attention. The press eats it up." "I'm the only candidate that has gone after him because everybody else seems to be intimidated by the bully. I'm not," he added.

    Jeb! Bush spent about n hour recently with the editorial board of The Tampa Tribune, responding in depth to questions about a wide range of policies he would push if he is elected president of the United States. He showed a clear command of the things he would face as commander in chief, speaking confidently and sounding much like a candidate who expects to sit in the Oval Office a little more than a year from now. He even said at one point, “I want a guy (in office) who understands the issues.” That was a clear slap at Donald...

    After starting 2015 as the presumptive front-runner with a huge bankroll, Jeb Bush has to be ending the year wondering what went wrong with his presidential campaign, what happened to his Republican Party and where all his money went. Mr. Bush and his super PAC burned through more than half of the $133 million they raised in the first three quarters this year. The return on that investment has been a drop in polls from about 15 percent when he entered the race in June to about 4 percent in recent surveys. "He has not been a great candidate and...

Jeb Bush says he doesn't care about Donald Trump calling him "low-energy," and cited a 16-hour work day as evidence of his energy levels. "I don't care about, I don't care about that," the former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate said on the show Wall Street Week over the weekend. "I work 16-hour days. My wife doesn't care about that, she could think of a lot worse thing to say..."

    A day after chiding the media for, as he put it, allowing Trump to play them like a violin, it was Jeb Bush who decided to bring up the real estate mogul, during a panel discussion with young professionals. Bush was asked by a name two historical figures and one celebrity he'd invite to a party. His answer came immediately. "I would not invite Donald Trump." Winston Churchill and Neil Armstrong would be welcome at his party, said Bush, but it was a firm no thanks on the celebrities. "I really don't believe in celebrity. I find it superficial."(continued)

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson defended his pro-life position this week in Iowa after facing criticism for comments he made about the pro-life movement and Terri Schiavo. “My position is that abortion should not be done,” Carson told Bloomberg Politics. “I believe that it’s murder and I don’t think that’s hateful speech. That’s just telling the truth.” As evidence of his pro-life position, Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, told people to look at his life. Carson said he is the only candidate running for president who has saved people’s lives. “I’m the only one who has ever operated on premature babies...
