How did your Rep vote on Terri Schiavo?
By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Mar 22, 2005
While the Senate passed the Terri Schiavo bill on Sunday unanimously, the House was divided. So how did your congressional Representative do?
You can find out on the House's web site.
We've added this link to the story in our archives as well. It's good to hold your political representatives accountable on these issues.

In the interests of consistency (in light of the recent Shiavo ruling), I propose all inmates on "Death-Row" cease receiving food and water immediately.

My brother has a severely disabled, autistic, 24-year old daughter. Her growth stopped when she reached the age of three. She is completely unaware of her surroundings and has absolutely no interaction with the physical world; i.e., she vegetates. She is different from Terri only in the fact that she can swallow and does not need a feeding tube. My brother took her to many therapists, doctors and clinics, all to no avail. Please vote: Would it be OK, ala Schiavo, to starve this girl to death?

Many Representatives were absent. Mine was. The Senate majority and minority negotiated a passage of the bill by voice vote. The individual yeas and nays were not recorded the Senate.

My representative Timothy Bishop (1CD-NY) voted Nay. He is also a Roman Catholic and supports abortion. I emailed his office to vote yes. His vote does not surprise me and Ihave never voted for him and never will.
