U.S. Congressman Mike Pence
Indiana's Sixth Congressional District
WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Congressman Mike Pence issued the following statement
today regarding the death of Terri Schiavo:
"I grieve today with the Schindler family and millions of Americans at the
death of their precious daughter, Terri Schiavo. With her death, America lost
not only a precious citizen, America lost its innocence.
"Although Terri Schiavo's life may be over, the debate over the rights of
incapacitated Americans is not over. Congress must right this wrong by ensuring
that incapacitated Americans may not be deprived of their inalienable right to
life without the assurance of the due process of law that our federal courts
were established to protect. This will be Terri Schiavo's legacy."
