THIS WOULD BE PROOF THAT TERRI IS CONSCIOUS -- NOT IN A "PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE" -- OTHERWISE SHE WOULD NOT NEED MORPHINE TO "EASE THE PAIN OF DEHYDRATION".
The Governor requested and received responses from at least six legal experts outside of his administration who says he is MANDATED TO INTERVENE, however, Jeb Bush says that his "legal office" cannot find a way for him to "intervene in a different fashion that will yield a different result", whatever in hell that means!
So, the GOVERNOR says its in the hands of the COURT (Judge George Greer), and GREER says, in essence: 'Don't blame me; blame MICHAEL SCHIAVO. He's the one calling the shots'. Then Michael will say the judge ordered it and the judge will say that he was just fulfilling his 'duty' to the state. It's that serpent again, completing it's strangle-hold, fully encircling the globe, and eating it's tail. The TALMUDIC SERPENT.
It has been said that Terri is a 'scapegoat' so to speak. For the whole world to see, murder is being committed and nobody is stopping it. It is happening world wide, and it has come to America.
Jesus said, "Ye are the light of the world". Let us send that Light to Terri, filling and surrounding her in the Love and Peace of our Father/Creator. -- Jackie -- October 17th, 2003

Desperate parents petition high court Seek mandate for Jeb Bush to save Terri, willing to take appeal to U.S. Supremes

Florida's 1st District Court of Appeal denied a petition by attorneys for the parents of Terri Schindler-Schiavo to mandate Gov. Jeb Bush intervene to prevent the brain-disabled woman from being starved to death as demanded by her husband.
Robert and Mary Schindler's attorneys will file a further appeal this afternoon with the Florida Supreme Court and are willing to go to the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.
Terri's feeding tube was removed Wednesday by order of Pinellas County Circuit Court Judge George W. Greer.
Doctors say she can live no more than two weeks after its removal, but the Schindlers fear she could die this weekend from morphine treatment given to relieve some of the pain of the starvation process.
At a press conference monitored by WorldNetDaily this afternoon, pro-life advocate Randall Terry, representing the Schindlers, said an attorney also is appealing directly to the governor through one of his legal aides.
"At this point, it is clear the clock is running out," Terry said, "and this is about the political will of the governor. He is literally their last hope "
Terry then directed his words to Bush. He said:
"In the name of God, intervene. Do the right thing. You have the authority, now use it."
Bush has been sympathetic to the Schindler's position, but the governor's legal team said yesterday it has been unable to find a basis for interention
"The legal office has been talking to people trying to find some strategy where my office can intervene in a different fashion that will yield a different result," Bush said. "So far we have not found that option."
Attorneys queried by the governor's legal office yesterday said Bush has the authority and the legal obligation to use his executive powers to prevent Terri's death and to launch a criminal investigation into the case. Felos dismissed the opinions as "ideological and inflammatory rhetoric."
Chased by death threats
Michael Schiavo temporarily has moved from his Clearwater, Fla., home after receiving death threats, the Associated Press reported. His attorney, George Felos, said the threats, via phone, mail and e-mail, have been reported to authorities.
Schiavo, who insists Terri told him of her wish to not use extraordinary means to keep her alive, has been living with another woman, Jodi Centonze, with whom he has a daughter, Olivia. He contends Terri is in a "persistent vegetative state," but more than a dozen medical professionals have flatly refuted that.
Videos released by the family indicate she is alert and responsive to people around her. Michael Schiavo has presented testimony from physicians who maintain Terri merely is exhibiting reflexive actions.
Meanwhile, Judge Greer's office has been flooded with e-mails, mostly from people angry about his ruling, reports WTVT-TV in Tampa. "You're nothing but a heartless killer in a robe," one e-mail said. "At least the color of black fits you. I can only hope that you'll soon die by starvation and dehydration."
Court spokesman Ron Stuart argued the judge is only doing his job, the Tampa station said. "I've tried to tell some of the people who call that their anger should be directed at Mr. Schiavo," said Stuart. "He's the one who's ultimately making the decision."
Legal documents and information on Terri's case are posted on the family's website.
