    A contentious battle over a law that gives hospitals the power of life or death over patients A contentious battle is taking place at this courthouse in downtown Houston, Texas over a law that gives hospitals virtually unlimited power to decide the fate of patients. Oral arguments took place centering on the question whether the law, called the Texas Advance Directives Act — or TADA for short — violates patients' constitutional rights by depriving them of due process. Texas Right to Life has led the vanguard in opposing this law. Incredibly enough, their main opposition is none other than the Texas Catholic bishops, who argue the...

    The myths about the Terri Schiavo case are repeated so often, it can be a futile effort to keep the story straight. One such myth is that the family somehow edited videos of Terri to make it appear falsely that she was conscious. The latest example of this false claim comes gratuitously in a story on Jahi McMath in the New Yorker:

    Personal trauma can cloud one’s judgment, so we can to some degree forgive U.S. District Court Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow for urging members of Congress to do something to curb public criticism of federal judges. Lefkow’s husband and mother were recently killed by a deranged man who blamed her for a life turned sour. The attacks were not politically motivated. Yet somehow, Lefkow has drawn a link between the killings and recent criticisms of the federal judiciary by Republicans, in a way that unnecessarily inflames the debate. While we wouldn’t expect that members of Congress would rebuke a grieving widow...
  • I Will Never Forget the Look of Horror on My Sister Terri Schiavo’s Face the Day She Died

    WARNING: This article from Terri Schiavo’s 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. Greer’s order to remove Terri’s feeding tube was...

    South Carolina was a bittersweet moment in Election 2016. Let me just get rid of the bitter, so I can focus on the better (the Bush uprooted). Anti-Establishment Ted Cruz did not win one county in South Carolina. Not one. Ouch! Is Cruz turning into Mike Huckabee 2008 and Rick Santorum 2012? I hope not, but if his showing in South Carolina is indicative of where he's headed, then he needs to pack up and go back to raising hell on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Now for the sweet, and it is too good not to relish. John...

    By contrast, former Florida governor cites his father's and brother's decorum and manners. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, looking for a receptive audience for his attacks on Donald Trump, cast aspersions on Friday on the front-runner's character and moral standards,citing his propensity to insult his adversaries and his use of vulgar language. "Anyone worried about a front running candidate shouting obscenities in front of children?" he told the Faith and Family Forum at evangelical college Bob Jones University. Invoking his father's more decorous approach to public life, he said "I cannot imagine my dad..." then trailed off.

    The Miami Herald ^ | February 5, 2016 | Carl Hiaasen
    "Please clap," Jeb Bush wryly told a subdued crowd in New Hampshire last week, a moment that epitomizes his problem. The pundits call it lack of traction. Among too many voters it's lack of interest. If Jeb bombs in New Hampshire, he's done. Even if he doesn't quit the race, it's over. A year ago this scenario was unimaginable. He had more money, more brains, more connections and more governing experience than any other Republican wanting to be president. Like many people, I thought his nomination would be a slam dunk. The gaseous rise of Donald Trump upended everything, but...

    If Rubio finished third with, say, 14 percent last night, today Team Jeb would be touting it as proof that he’s a paper tiger with a hard ceiling in the mid-teens and that the only hope of “somewhat conservative” voters against Trump and Cruz is a RINO with a giant war chest. That might have appealed to undecideds in New Hampshire, especially if it’s true that there’s a “Stop Trump” faction that cares more about Trump losing than any of the other candidates winning.But we are where we are. Rubio finished so well that, with another day of campaigning...
  • Jeb Bush collects just $7 million as fundraising drops (Jeb down 50%, Right to Rise down 85%)

    Former Florida governor Jeb Bush brought in just $7.12 million for his presidential bid in the last three months of 2015, a little more than half of what his campaign collected the previous quarter. His total for the quarter represents a sharp drop-off from earlier in the year: In his first quarter as a candidate, Bush raised $11.42 million. In his second, he pulled in $13.34 million. The slowdown in contributions comes as the Republican has remained low in the polls in many of the early nominating states, including Iowa, which will hold the first-in-the-nation caucuses on Monday.

    Jeb married the daughter of a maid and her Columba's dad probably paid off human traffickers in his day. What sort of power imbalance is that? What about all the drug problems and theft. Can't he tell his elite family to behave? What about Rubio marrying a cheerleader and his relatives involved in drugs?

    A father took a gun into hospital to stop doctors taking his son off life support - and during the three-hour stand-off the young man squeezed his hand. The sign that he wasn't brain dead meant he was kept alive - and he is now recovering and doing well. His father, 59-year-old George Pickering II, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after marching into Tomball Regional Medical Center in Texas with a gun.

    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...

    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...

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is taking issue with comments pro-life presidential hopeful Ben Carson made about 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... "All life deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. That was the message that persuaded every member of the senate to agree to a federal court review before Terri was starved to death," Santorum said. Santorum told LifeNews that there was such...

    The Washington Post reports that a local reporter caught up with Carson about the infamous case when he was in town in Florida for a speaking engagement. From the report: "We face those kinds of issues all the time and while I don't believe in euthanasia, you have to recognize that people that are in that condition do have a series of medical problems that occur that will take them out," he said. "Your job [as a doctor] is to keep them comfortable throughout that process and not to treat everything that comes up." When the reporter asked whether Carson...
