Government Representatives met yesterday with the Schindlers as reported by Catholic News Agency.
"It was very powerful for the representatives to meet Schiavo’s parents and “to have to look into their eyes and see that this is a human being, not just another test case.”" reported Lori Kehoe, Congressional Liaison for the NRLC.
"She noted that one of the few harsh reactions came from Rep. Nancy Johnson (R-CT) who “looked right at [Schiavo’s brother] and said ‘that’s not life…how long has she been in that coma and how much is it costing us?’” Rep. Johnson is notorious for her pro-death stance.
“It was really bad”, Kehoe noted."
Write to Nancy Johnson, especially her constituents from western Connecticut.
You can use or edit this letter:
Dear Representative Johnson,
This note is to express my outrage at the insensitivity of your comments to Terri Schindler-Schiavo's family.
As my representative YOU DO NOT EXPRESS MY VIEWS IN YOUR UTTER DISREGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE FROM WOMB TO TOMB.
Be assured that I will bring this to the attention of more constituents in my area. The only acceptable action is to issue an apology for your impudence.
It would do you well to learn all the facts before making harsh judgements. There is a wealth of information circulating on Terri Schiavo; there is no excuse for ignorance concerning the facts of this case.
"Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."
