I have sent the following email to some of the Florida senators that voted "No" for the bill that was to save Terri Schiavo's life.
These senators' names can be found at http://www.blogsforterri.com/archives/2005/03/florida_senator.php#more.
If more could write, but especially call them by phone, they might just change their votes.
The subject of the emails to these senators is the same as today's blog.
Dear Senator <name>,
My email probably does not mean anything to you, since I am a South African living in South Africa.
However, I would like to bring to your attention that decisions made in the USA still make people sit up in other countries, even South Africa.
In my opinion, a decision against life and for death, especially in the Terri Schiavo case can have terrible repercussions across the globe and not just in the USA. Make such a decision and not long from now the downward slide will start in other countries. If the greatest nation in the world does not respect living human beings, why should lesser nations? This is exactly what happened with Roe vs Wade and the abortion apocalypse.
I do not believe that Terri deserves death, especially not in this excruciating way of starvation. Terri is not in a comatose vegetative state. She still has cognative abilities which have already been proven. Is it right that murderous criminals have more legal representation than does Terri Schiavo? Is it right that an unelected judge who in reality does not represent the people make a death-decision of such great proportions?
You represent the people, and I am sure--if I understand the greatness of the American people--that the people themselves would vote for life in this case. Please, represent the people who voted for you and make the right decision. Vote for Terri's life, not her death!
Please uphold the true constitution of the USA and not that one so reinterpreted by unelected judges!
Thank you for your time and may God bless you!
