Call Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R.-Tenn.) and your state’s two senators and tell them you want the Senate to act today on a bill that could save Terri Schiavo’s life. The U.S. House has passed the bill and President Bush is sure to sign it, so the U.S. Senate is the last obstacle. Terri is scheduled to be starved and dehydrated to death tomorrow at 1:00 pm, so there is no time to lose.
The bill is a little different from the one that Congress was previously considering and that we mentioned in our Weekly Briefing earlier this week. This new bill is called the Protection of Incapacitated Persons Act of 2005, and its bill number is HR 1332. Politely tell the offices of Sen. Frist and your home state senators something like, “I’m a pro-life American, and I expect the U.S. Senate to vote on this bill before the process of Terri Schiavo’s execution begins.”
Sen. Frist’s phone number is 202-224-3344.
Other senators’ numbers can be found at www.senate.gov or by calling the U.S. Capitol switchboard, 202-225-3121. _________ PRI P.O. Box 1559 Front Royal, VA 22630 USA
