Terry Shiavo still has a chance!!!

Terry Schiavo, the Florida woman at the center of a controversial legal battle to keep her alive, still has a chance, in a Breakpoint.com commentary Chuck Colson writes:

Florida Senator Mel Martinez (R) and Representative Dave Weldon (R) have just introduced the “Incapacitated Person’s Legal Protection Act” in the U.S. Congress. The act is based on the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which states, “No State . . . shall deprive any person of life . . . without due process of law . . . nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” This act is designed to guarantee the constitutional right to life of Terri and others in her position. It would establish Terri’s right to her own legal counsel and call for a review of her case in federal court.
Hopefully this is the break needed to bring justice where there hasn't been for quite some time. Mr. Colson urges all to contact Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, along with our representatives and senators to urge them to pass this bill before March 18th, the day Terry Schiavo will have her feeding stopped by court order.

Once again, I pray God's will be done.

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE...
THIS MESSAGE SHALL SERVE AS NOTICE TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...
TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...
TO THE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA...
AND TO THE SOVEREIGN PEOPLE, IN WHOS HANDS LIE THE FATE OF TERRY SHIAVO

Terry Shiavo is a sovereign citizen of the United States of America. What does that mean?

Sovereignty is the basis of freedom, liberty, and honor among men. The Declaration of Independence describes each of us as being sovereign citizens. Our founding fathers thought of themselves as sovereign men. In their world, sovereignty was in the realm of kings and noblemen. The Declaration was essentially a statement to the king of England, king George III that from now on we Americans are to be recognized as sovereigns. Thus, no longer subjects of the earthly kingdom of king George. The king reacted to our abdication as his subjects, by sending his armies and his fleets in an effort to subjugate us once again to his sovereignty. You see, kings are funny that way, they believe their sovereignty is granted to them by God, and therefore they have the right to subjugate others to serve their purpose. But in our country, America, we believe we are all sovereign, and therefore we stand together as sovereigns in defense of the unalienable rights granted to us by God.

Our rights and freedom are not granted to us by the Constitution, they are ours by virtue of our sovereignty. The Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and Bill of Rights are instruments which both recognize the origin of our sovereign rights, and demonstrate the manner in which we will govern and protect ourselves. So that we may all enjoy the liberty our society is granted by our observance of them as the guideposts they represent.

Our constitution is the very thing which provides a symbol of our sovereignty and also serves to protect it. Our Constitution is our evidence to the world and our commitment to one another that we will remain united and defend our individual sovereignty. But we must protect our national sovereignty as well. Because the two are united as one. And an attack on one is the same as an attack on the other, diminishing one diminishes the other. We subject ourselves to our own laws because under our Constitution they protect us. One of the most powerful components of our founding documents are the Bill of Rights. In particular the right to life , liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and the context implicitly implies further that congress shall pass no law abridging these basic rights.

Where then does the constitution empower a judge to resend the sovereignty of Terry Shiavo and deny her these rights? Does the constitution state that when Terry Shindler became the wife of Mr. Shiavo that she gave up her sovereignty and that he implicitly has been granted a constitutional power to deny her the sovereign rights described in the Bill of Rights?

I WARN OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RULED BY LAWS TO WHICH THEY HAVE NOT CONSENTED...
CONGRESS SHALL PASS NO LAW THEN WHICH ABRIDGES THE LIFE OF TERRY SHIAVO...

I AM CALLING FOR A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE IN THE JUDICIARY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...
AS A SOVEREIGN CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES I DEMAND THAT CONGRESS SHALL DISMANTLE THE JUDICIAL BRANCH OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND IF DEEMED NECESSARY THE SUPREME COURT WHOS JURISDICTION CONGRESS HAS AUTHORITY TO DEVISE...

WHOSOEVER WILL ENTER INTO THIS APPEAL TO THE LEGISLATURE OF THE UNITED STATES, AFFIX YOUR SEAL TO THIS NOTICE AS EVIDENCE OF YOUR AGREEMENT WITH THE SPIRIT OF OUR CONSTITUTION AS IT IS INTURPRETED BY THIS NOTICE.

I HEREBY AFFIX MY SEAL (ANTHONY ALLEN BAATZ) AS THE AUTHOR OF THIS APPEAL TO THE AFFORE MENTIONED REPRESENTATIVES WHO HAVE SWORE BY OATH OF OFFICE TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
