Comments from Jackie Patru...

This news may be good news for Terri, and on the flip side, could well lead to great disappointment for all. Although Felos (Michael's lawyer) has said they won't continue to respond to Terri's family in their recent court activity, the real battle awaits the U.S. Supreme Court decision. The Florida State Supremes declared that Terri's Law WAS unconstitutional, so it has been sent the the U.S. Supremes whose decision is said to be pending come the New Year.

Americans have been led to believe that the decisions handed down by the U.S. Supremes IS the "supreme law of the land", when in fact that court is merely a branch of the three branches of the U.S. Government. Neither the Court itself, nor the black-robed creatures who sit the benches, have the authority to amend the Constitution by their calls. However, if enough people believe what has been fed to them by the propagandists believe they have the authority, it will become color of law, and stand until successfully challenged.

Let us not heave a sigh of relief. We've -- many of us -- come to realize that the outcome of Terri's case is a watershed for those who've promulgated the killing off of what they term as "useless eaters". They mean to have their way. When we stand for Terri, we stand for every human being on this planet. Why? Because this genocide is happening, not only in America, but throughout the world in the so-called "developed" nations.

Maybe Felos didn't bother to respond because they're cock-sure the murder of Terri will be sanctioned by the black-robed satanic/Talmudic "judges". Let's not go to sleep on this. -- Jackie --

Terri Schiavo's Husband Won't Participate in Part of Legal Battle

Clearwater, FL (LifeNews.com) -- Terri Schiavo's estranged husband appears to have ended his involvement in one of the two ongoing legal battles in the fight to save her life. In an interview this week, Michael Schiavo's lead attorney said he would cease responding to Terri's parents efforts to prevent her from being starved to death.

In that aspect of the case, Bob and Mary Schindler are asking the courts to declare that removing Terri's feeding tube and causing her death would be a violation of her First Amendment religious liberties.

The Schindlers say such an action would contravene Terri's Catholic faith and that recent statements by Pope John Paul II confirm the church's strong opposition to euthanasia.

George Felos, the euthanasia advocate who is Michael's lead attorney, confirmed speculation that has existed for two months that Michael will drop out of that case.

"There is no prospect of finality,'' Felos told the Associated Press on Tuesday.

"They (the appeals court) allow the Schindlers to attack the judgment no matter how frivolous," Felos told AP. "The only way the case can end is if the Schindlers stop attacking the final judgment or the court says no more stays. Until then we are just going to be on this revolving door.''

Felos has informed the 2nd District Court of Appeal that he is not responding to the motion the Schindlers filed appealing a judge's decision throwing out their religious liberties argument.

Despite dropping out of that case, Felos and Michael Schiavo are sticking with their lawsuit seeking to overturn Terri's Law. It is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court on appeal.

That was the measure approved by the state legislature allowing Governor Jeb Bush to ask doctors to reinsert Terri's feeding tube six days after Michael won a court order to starve her.

Felos claims the law is a violation of the separation of powers clause in the state constitution. Bush's attorney's respond that Florida courts never gave him a chance to make the case that Terri would not want to be killed.

The nation's high court will decide early next year whether to take the case.
