Press Release

Special Session Called in State Legislature

Speaker of the House, Johnnie Byrd to introduce “Terri’s Bill”

Clearwater, FL October 19, 2003: The Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush, has called a special session of the Florida Legislature for Monday, October 20, 2003. At that time, Florida’s Speaker of the House will introduce “Terri’s Bill”. By Florida law, two thirds majority vote are required to have a topic entered.

Volunteers with the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation have learned that Senate President, Jim King is against this bill.

The Bill would put an immediate moratorium on all dehydration and starvation deaths currently pending in Florida.

We have come to a time when the merchants of death have created a constitutional crisis and a justice gridlock, while the rightful life of Florida’s disabled and vulnerable citizens tragically hang on Terri Schindler-Schiavo’s court ordered dehydration and starvation death.

We urge all concerned Floridians to contact their Senators and State House members to vote for Terri’s bill.

Time is short.

please find any church online that is in Florida, and especially of your denomination, and call them. If everyone just called ONE church and asked....ask them to call and call and get their other church members, friends, family to call. Fight the culture of death!!

Here Is the page with the phone numbers of their reps, by county and district. You could print it out to have it handy in case they need to know who to call.

The special session is at 1:45 pm Florida time, please stop and pray right then if you can!

This could not only save Terri from more suffering and death, but it would be, imo, a huge prolife victory as well.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
