While the Senate has unanimously passed a bill that would save Terri Schiavo's life, some Democratic congressmen have forced the House to delay a vote until after midnight tonight. People should be asking: Why?
I believe the answer can be found in the Democrats' pro-abortion agenda. Although Planned Parenthood and NARAL have been ominously silent on Terri—they know what's good for them—the blogger at Third Wave Agenda—who admits personal discomfort with the idea of killing Terri—articulates the probable motives of those who would murder her to make a political point:
Congress is getting involved, and it's this kind of Republican hypocrisy that kills me. They talk about limited government and how public officials shouldn't be interfering in private peoples' lives, and then they try to step in and interfere in the most personal of family decisions. It's a huge over-step on their part, and limited-government-loving conservatives should be the ones who are outraged.In other words, if Congress can act to save one adult woman's life, what's to prevent it from acting to save unborn children's lives?
There you have the twisted logic of the pro-death movement: Anything But Life. Talk about throwing out the baby with the bathwater.
The Empire Journal, an excellent source of news on Terri, has information on how to contact your representative to urge them to pass the Incapacitated Persons Legal Protection Act that would save Terri. More updates are at BlogsForTerri.
