The House of Representatives worked

The House of Representatives worked late into the night to pass legislation to give federal courts jurisdiction in the Terri Schiavo case. President Bush cut short a weekend getaway at his Texas ranch and rushed back to DC to sign the bill into law. Right now, Terri now has about the same rights as your everyday death row inmate.

This means that Terri, a woman only convicted of being disabled, will now have her case heard in federal court, where they will determine if she deserves to die.

Hospice could reattach Terri Schiavo's tube early this morning once a federal judge signs a protective stay agreement, which is expected.

Question: This legislation was expected, this really was not a surprising development. Congress had even issued subpoenas to protect Terri before her feeding tube was removed. Why were Michael Schiavo, Judge Greer and George Felos so eager to cause Terri more pain by removing her tube, knowing that they most likely would have to reattach it? Could it be they were hoping that she would die before Congress could act?

You decide.
