Flip Benham, Director of Operation Save America. “In truth her retirement was a well-choreographed maneuver. It tested the waters to find out how the conservative base would react to the nomination of Alberto R. Gonzales. The reaction was not good.

She betrayed the very document she was sworn to uphold – the Constitution. Finally, she betrayed our nation's children.”

Terri Schiavo is God's gift to us. We are not God's gift to her. Her plight has been brought to the forefront so that we might take care of her.

We need to be a people who are not only vexed in our souls by the injustice we see in our time, but a people who know we have been born for such a time as this. We must love Terri with more than just our words. We must act on her behalf.

Released February 24, 2005
At the moment that, in the Dutch debate on euthanasia, a court ruled that withholding food and fluid is a permissible medical treatment the road was paved for the Euthanasia Law that is in force in Holland now. It was in the case of Mrs. Ineke Stinissen, who had been in coma for several years that a Dutch court ruled in 1990 that food and fluid could be withheld from her. As is the case of Mrs. Schiavo, this was at the request of her husband. Mrs. Stinissen died shortly afterwards from starvation.
