Like Lambs to the Slaughter

Being pro-life activists, we see lambs being lead to the slaughter on a daily basis. In the Colorado pro-life community Lamb can also be spelled Lamm. Unfortunately the second Lamm is the enemy of the first, because it was Dick Lamm the state legislator who, in 1967, authored the first law to legalized abortion for rape and incest. He has gone on to become “Duty to Die” Lamm explaining the elderly should kill themselves, “…and let the other society, our kids, build a reasonable life." Dick Lamm will turn 71 later this year.

Dick Lamm is not the only Lamm who is a danger to the innocent. Dick’s sister-in-law Peggy Lamm has tried and failed several times to pass assisted suicide laws in the Colorado State House and now she is seeking a U.S. house seat. So with a family so obsessed with killing innocent people; who could they invite as a speaker for Peggy Lamm's political fundraiser? Scott Peterson? O.J. Simpson?

The keynote speaker this Thursday in Denver was Michael Schiavo. The most infamous spousal abuser in America.

In front of a group of about fifty supporters Michael talked about “freedom” and what right wing fanatics had done to him. There was also a group outside the home who came to see Michael. Thirty-one pro-life and disability activists were there to warn Michael and Peggy of coming the judgment. Standing at the only entrance to the gated community every political supporter had to drive passed our signs and preaching.

Among our group were two current board members of Colorado Right to Life, the past president of CRTL, six people in wheelchairs, one deaf woman, one blind man, and an unborn baby.

We pray the family of Lamms will turn from there legacy of murder and will no longer be the predators of innocent lambs.

In Christ,

Jason Troyer

To the Ft. Collins Coloradoan:


"Wednesday, Michael Schiavo said Musgrave "had no clue" about Terri Schiavo's medical condition, noting that his wife's autopsy showed her brain was half the size of a normal woman her age."


Could the 13 day starvation/dehydration regime Terri's husband demanded
have led to her brain's shrinkage?

A recent North Country Gazette article noted that, "Drs. Thogmorton and Nelson claimed Terri's brain weighed
615 grams (about 50% weight.) But Thogmorton also stated this was the worst case of dehydration
he had ever seen. "Her body cavities were completely dry!"

Because the brain is 75% water Terri's brain undoubtedly was diminished by such abuse.

Congresswoman Musgrave's concern for the appalling mistreatment of a completely innocent
woman's torture is to be commended.

Michael's small minded obsession with discarding one wife for another is to be pitied.

For his big money handlers won't be able to shield him from the coming judgment
of the evil he perpetrated.

LAMM AND SCHIAVO: Peas in decaying pod!
Sent to the Rocky Mountain News 7-13-06


Peggy Lamm's failed efforts to pass her assisted suicide measure in 1996
explain precisely why she would seek Michael Schiavo's assistance
to raise funds for her 7th CD race.

Their mutual affinity for death has a long history.

Michael's squeals about privacy, notwithstanding, murder of
innocent life is never a "private family matter."

Both will eventually realize that even George Soros'
billions won't help them elude the coming judgment
of the evil they perpetrate.

Terri Schiavo's widower (WHAT?!?!) takes on politicians in privacy campaign

Associated Press
DENVER - More than a year after winning a bruising battle to disconnect his brain-damaged wife from a feeding tube, Michael Schiavo brought his campaign against government intrusion to Colorado Wednesday, demanding an apology from a Republican congresswoman he accused of interfering in his family's decision.

Schiavo, whose wife, Terri, died in March 2005 after a seven-year court and political battle that reached Capitol Hill, has formed a political action committee and has targeted races in Colorado, Florida and Texas.

He came to Colorado to support two Democratic candidates for the U.S. House, including Angie Paccione, who is challenging Rep. Marilyn Musgrave. Musgrave spoke last year on the floor of the House against allowing Terri Schiavo's feeding tube to be removed.

"I want to ask Marilyn Musgrave who gave her the right to speak about Terri," Schiavo said. "Who gave her the authority to bring Congress into my family decisions?"

He said most Americans disagree with what Musgrave did and believe politicians should stay out of family decisions.

"I think Marilyn Musgrave should apologize, not just to me but to the people who voted for her, people who sent her to congress to run the country, not our personal lives," he said.

He also delivered a letter to her field office in Loveland.

Musgrave, who represents Colorado's fourth district, spanning eastern and northeastern areas of the state, issued a written statement saying, "I have only compassion for Michael and Terri's family, and all those who have lost a loved one."

Pat Anderson, a Florida attorney who represented Terri Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, for three years and remains in regular contact with them said she found Michael Schiavo's political campaigning offensive.

"Somebody needs to tell this guy his 15 minutes of fame are up," she said.

Colorado GOP chairman Bob Martinez criticized Schiavo's involvement in Colorado, especially his planned fundraiser Thursday for Peggy Lamm, a Democrat seeking a seat from the 7th Congressional District.

"I can't help but believe that the majority of Coloradans were appalled to learn that Michael Schiavo is helping political candidates profit off his wife's death," Martinez said in a news release.

Lamm issued a statement Wednesday saying she was proud of Schiavo's support.

"He wouldn't even be here if it weren't for the shameful way the Schiavos were treated by the Bush Administration and the Republicans in Congress," she said.

Paccione welcomed Schiavo's support and vowed to fight government involvement in private lives.

"The government has really overstepped its bounds in invading our privacy, in our bedrooms, in our medical decisions, on our phone lines, and it's time for the government to stop doing that," she said. "Michael puts a human face on this congressional invasion of privacy."

Terri Schiavo, who was raised in the Philadelphia suburb of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., collapsed in 1990, her heart stopped and she suffered what doctors said was irreversible brain damage that left her in a permanent vegetative state.

Michael Schiavo said his wife told him she wouldn't want to be kept alive artificially, and in 1998 he asked a court to allow her feeding tube to be removed. Her parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, fought the request through a series of courts. Michael Schiavo won final approval to remove the tube in 2005.

At 43, Schiavo has remarried and continues to work as a nurse at a Florida jail. He co-authored a book, "Terri: The Truth" and said he is determined to develop his political career.

He also formed a PAC that has raised about $25,000 and contributed to candidates in seven races. Lamm's campaign received a $1,000 donation and PAC director Derek Newton said while the PAC and Schiavo endorse Paccione, a donation has not yet been delivered to the campaign.

He said he may also get involved in races in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Missouri and he vowed Wednesday to be involved in the 2008 presidential race.

Working 12-hour nursing shifts and maintaining a home life while traveling has been difficult, Schiavo said. But he said he is motivated.

"I'm not a political person, but I will stand behind anybody who believes that government should not be in our personal business, be it Republican, be it Democrat," he said. "I will do it because I am angry. Those people drug my name through the mud."
