Bush signs bill that may let Schiavo live
Terri Schiavo's parents won the chance to plea for their daughter's life in federal court with an extraordinary law passed in an emergency session of Congress that saw lawmakers choosing sides in an emotional family battle.

President Bush signed the bill almost immediately after its passage early Monday, vowing in a statement to "stand on the side of those defending life for all Americans, including those with disabilities."

"In cases like this one, where there are serious questions and substantial doubts, our society, our laws and our courts should have a presumption in favor of life," he said.

Kinda funny, kinda sad, kinda outrageous that this is the same guy who enacted the law (as governor) that required this and this to happen.

  • The actions of Delay and others violate basic principles espoused by conservatives and Christian fundamentalists. This is a great example of an intrusive "big government." Keeping a woman alive through the use of a feeding-tube seems to be "playing God." Don't these people think Schiavo is on her way to heaven?
