Subject: Congress must stop grandstanding on the Schiavo tragedy
Dear friend
On Sunday, Tom DeLay and Bill Frist, the Republican congressional leaders,
convened an emergency meeting of Congress to pass a bill that recklessly
interferes in the tragedy surrounding Terri Schiavo.
Frist and DeLay claim that they're acting out of concern for Ms. Schiavo.
But a memo intended only for Republican Senators--uncovered by ABC
News--reveals Republicans' true concern: "The pro-life base will be excited.
.this is a great political issue...this is a tough issue for Democrats."
This story also takes the heat off Tom DeLay, who is facing a number of
serious ethics charges and legal scandals
Americans can have different personal opinions about what should happen to
Terri Schiavo--life is precious, and this case raises some important ethical
questions. But we can all agree that that's what the courts are for: to make
the call in difficult circumstances. That's why Congress' interference is
such an ugly and shameful incident of political grandstanding. 
Will you sign this petition to tell Congress they must stop using one person
s tragedy for their own political gain, and move on to the important
business facing our country
