Amazing how the cautious tidbit

Amazing how the cautious tidbit of hope most who support Terri felt yesterday has been dashed today. Blogs for Terri reporting:
Fox News: Judge Whitmore has declined to order reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, as requested by the Schindlers. No further information is available at this time.
Take some time to pray for Terri and her family. It has been a fascinating, heart-wrenching roller coaster ride.

  • To read about how Florida failed Terri, see Todd Wiley's wonderful post at Amateur Megalomania. Todd also asks about the constitutionality of the law passed in Congress, I plan to try to give a clear answer to his questions later today but if you feel you can answer them, please go ahead and let me know and I will post your comments as well.
  • To read more about the cowardice of our public officials regarding Terri Schiavo, see John C.A. Bambenek's insightful post.

Update: Jeff from ThinkSink has asked in my comments for any resource I may be aware of that lists who in Congress voted for Terri's bill. Well, I'm so glad you asked:
