Irrevocable Choice

Irrevocable Choice is a blog about life issues. Those in favor of legalized abortion often use the word "choice." Once completed, the "choice" to destroy a human life either via abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research is IRREVOCABLE. It is PERMANENT. It can NEVER be undone. The innocent life can NEVER be restored.

Judge Ordering Dehydration of Terri Gets an Award!

Father Frank Pavone was graciously allowed the ability to visit Terri. Here is Father Pavone's account of Terri Schiavo's last hours on earth. Let us remember that she was in this alleged position as a result of Greer's court order of starvation and dehydration, based on HEARSAY. I say "alleged" only because I could not see this for myself. Afterall, Felos, the attorney for MICHAEL Schiavo, who frequently discussed Terri's medical details with the press, claimed he did not want cameras in Terri's room for "privacy" reasons. As such, Terri's family claims to have been searched whenever they entered the room to watch their daughter be starved and dehydrated by Greer's court order. A police officer (furnished at the expense of taxpayers who do not have any CHOICE in how their money is spent) was stationed in the room at all times to enforce Greer's order.

Greer, the judge who ordered the starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo, is being awarded. Credit goes to Spirit Daily for the link. (In my opinion Greer deserves a different kind of award: IMPEACHMENT.) The article states that the award is not ONLY as a result of the Terri Schiavo case. So let's see, what else could there be? What other factors came into play? I wonder if taking a campaign contribution from Felos, the lawyer who argued to have Terri dehydrated and starved with the intent of ending her life was considered? (Oh, excuse me, that's RELATED to the Terri Schiavo case. They said Greer gets the award for OTHER things.) Is it perhaps as a result of a case where he denied a petition for injunction (mentioned near the middle of the linked article) which later resulted in the death of an innocent woman? This was in 1998 --- BEFORE 2005. This was ANOTHER case where an innocent woman died. Is it possibly due to the allegations in this article?

Back to Terri Schiavo. What specific things influenced the award from that case? Was it influenced by ordering the dehydration and starvation based on HEARSAY by a husband (who had children by another woman while married to Terri) and HIS side of the family? Here is a transcript of what Michael Schiavo said on CNN. An entry in Blogs for Terri points out the specific quote of interest.

Was it influenced by the fact that as a result of Greer's court order, CHILDREN were arrested? We would expect such behavior in NAZI Germany between 1933 and 1945, not the United States of America in 2005.

Was it influenced by Greer allowing Michael Schiavo the ability to deny priests the right to provide Terri Schiavo DAILY Holy Communion, as is her religious right as a Catholic? (Note: Eventually, she was allowed Holy Communion on Easter Sunday. Her tongue was dried out and she was this UNABLE, BECAUSE OF GREER'S COURT ORDER, to receive a fleck of the Precious Body of Christ. She could ONLY receive our Lord's Precious Blood. Catholics ordinarily receive the Precious Body FIRST and MIGHT receive His Most Precious Blood. Had the court not ORDERED dehydration of Terri Schiavo, she TOO could have received Christ's Most Precious Body. But this goes beyond Easter. Catholics in a state of grace (and Terri WAS in a state of grace, having received Last Rites - not that such determination is ANY of the secular government's business) are entitled to DAILY Holy Communion. As a Catholic, Terri was entitled to that religious right. Michael Schiavo, supported by Greer's order, denied daily Holy Communion.) Judges so often talk about "following the law." The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states that Congress cannot prohibit the free practice of religion. The U.S. Constitution is the highest secular law in this country.

While I do not relish the notion of Greer getting an award, I think it's interesting that his name is in the media again. For those who may have forgotten innocent Terri Schiavo, who was denied nutrition and water as a result of Greer's court order, this award to Greer should be a good reminder.
