Breaking News: Congress Will Save Terri

Fox News and other news sources are reporting that Congress has agreed to a bipartisan, bicameral bill that will save Terri Schindler-Schiavo's life. The bill, which has widespread if not unanimous support in both houses of Congress, will grant the Schindlers access to a federal court which will review the decision of Judge Greer to remove Terri's feeding tube. Both houses of Congress will work on the bill tonight and tomorrow, hoping to send the bill to the President for him to sign it into law on Monday. Additionally, on the newscast I watched, Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX) accused Michael Schiavo of "abuse and neglect" and said that he couldn't understand why a judge would have allowed Terri to remain in his care for so long.

If Judge Greer were smart, given the fact that his career may now be on the line, he would issue a stay immediately pending congressional action. If Terri Schindler-Schiavo dies before Congress can act, I think it's safe to say that both Judge Greer and Michael Schiavo will have hell to pay.

This is extremely good news. Thanks, St. Cyril of Jerusalem!
