Thank you for your service to our District. I would like to ask for your strong support of the Incapacitated Person's Legal Protection Act (Terri's Law) to prevent the enforced murder of Terri Schindler Schiavo. If you have a moment, please review the document filed on her behalf from the Department of Children & Families in Florida at http://www.tampabays10.com/pdfs/DCFintervene1.pdf
It details the alleged mistreatment of Terri Schiavo by her guardian. It is inconceivable that a guardian who does not allow normal rehabilitation (as opposed to heroic measures) is permitted to remain as her guardian when he apparently has a vested interest in her death.
People ask that she be allowed to "die with dignity". When did the enforced starvation and dehydration of a disabled woman become a dignified death? How can the courts and the government allow this to happen? Please give Terri another voice and pass this legislation immediately.
Thank you for your time.
