Terri's Law: A Scientology Sham

Pinellas Election and the Hearing of Terri's Law: Scheduled on Disguised Scientology Date

The Pinellas County Wide Primary Election will take place on August 31, 2004. Jan Govan is challenging Judge George Greer, a twelve-year incumbent. 

The Pinellas Primary Election is customarily held in late summer. The Primary Election could have been scheduled for September 7th and been consistent with the dates used in the past, but Deborah Clark, Supervisor of Elections, chose the August 31st date.

August 31st was selected for the Pinellas County Primary Election for a reason. Perhaps Deborah Clark likes to stay in good graces with the power behind the politics in Clearwater, Florida: Scientology.

Predictably, Scientology is cozy with The Pinellas Supervisor of Elections and also with other elected public officials—including the mayor. The St. Petersburg Times Online reported in 2002 of a Scientology bash in which many noted officials attended—including the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections, Deborah Clark:

The Church of Scientology, long on the fringe of the Clearwater community, will roll out the red carpet at its Fort Harrison Hotel tonight, staging a black tie gala for the area's power elite.

State Sen. Jack Latvala and his wife, Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala, plan to go. Pinellas Sheriff Everett Rice will attend. So will Clearwater Mayor Brian Aungst. Pinellas Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark is going. So, too are leaders from the Clearwater YMCA and the local branch of the NAACP.

[update: Everett Rice continues to be impressed with Scientology.]

Not coincidentally, the Florida Supreme Court also chose  August 31, 2004 to hear Terri's Law.

August 31st: Disguised Scientology Date

August 31st is the inverse of August 13th. Just as occultists use anagrams for the purpose of disguise, inverted numbers can be used in the same way.

August 13 is a Scientology high day:

Advanced Organization Founding Day Los Angeles, to celebrate the opening of the American Saint Hill Organization and the Advanced Organization Los Angeles in 1968.

(Quote source: Scientology Holidays)

I am not surprised that the Supreme Court will begin hearing this case on a day with the same "vibrations" as a Scientology high day. This law belongs to them, and is serving their purpose, not Terri's.

Terri's Law: A Scientology Sham

Terri's Law was written in such a way that it directs the public's attention away from Judge Greer's judicial misconduct which includes years of illegal rulings. A brief filed by seventeen disability advocates "urges the Florida Supreme Court to affirm Terri's right to food and water and overturn a judge's decision allowing Terri's estranged husband Michael to starve her to death." This brief does not address Judge Greer's outlaw rulings. If Judge Greer obeyed the Florida statutes already on the books, there would never have been a "need" for Terri's Law.

Terri's Law was designed so that Governor Jeb Bush would be able to issue stays for people who are already being dehydrated/ starved. This law, which was supposedly passed to help protect the disabled, expired after fifteen days. It is a complete sham! 

Terri's Law applies to people the court has found to be in a persistent vegetative state. (Terri is actually cognitively able, but since she was "found" to be in a PVS state by Judge Greer's not legal idea of "clear and convincing evidence", it applies to her.) Terri's Law conveniently does not address the means by which the court arrives at the PVS finding, nor does it address the numerous statutes that have been broken in this guardianship case. Since Judge Greer did not abide by the Florida statutes in finding that Terri Schiavo was in a PVS state, he and all likeminded predecessors should be relieved that this central issue was not even mentioned in Terri's Law. 

People who are with the Scientology program tout Terri's Law as the only legal means between Terri Schindler Schiavo and death. This is exactly what Scientology wants you to think. The Florida statutes— which Judge Greer ignores along with his Scientology backers—protect Terri adequately . . .  if they were obeyed.

Terri's Law also serves the purpose to cause the public to think that present laws are inadequate to protect the disabled. Present laws are not inadequate; rather, they are not being enforced.

The present laws protecting people determined to be incapacitated are TOO good for Scientology's comfort level. That is why they are breaking the present laws regarding the treatment of a disabled adult via Judge Greer's rulings. A circuit court judge's years of ignoring present guardianship laws sets a precedent to eventually abandon them. Terri's Law—in the absence of enforced present laws—is Scientology's dream: 

The difference between a disabled person's life and death would be determined by an official's decision or "stay."

Terri's Law looks good on the surface but has some dangerous components. For example:

The Governor may lift the stay authorized under this act at any time. 

[Why was this clause written into the law?!]

Upon the issuance of the stay, the chief judge of the circuit court shall appoint a guardian ad litem for the patient to make recommendations to the Governor and the court.

[ "Judge" Greer and the other judges involved in this case, do not even obey Terri's Law. David A. Demers, chief judge of the Sixth Judicial Circuit, dismissed Dr. Jay Wolfson, Terri's guardian ad litem. Wolfson's conclusion that Terri had a "distinct presence" and was responsive to her family was not in accordance with the program. Judge Greer also rejected Wolfson's suggestion of a swallow test. This judge's refusal to permit a swallow test is reprehensible because he has long been aware that Terri does swallow. 

Pat Anderson's August 4, 2003 legal brief states: "Although she swallows, she is sustained through a gastric feeding tube."

The Florida statutes require that Terri be given counselher own attorney. This law has not been obeyed either.]

The most dangerous component of Terri's Law is that it does not even mention medically administered feedings. Instead, it uses words that include regular food and water: "nutrition and hydration." See: Terri's Law: An Ominous Euthanasia Inroad

Since Florida officials are holding hands with the "church" of Scientology it is imperative to take formal steps to expose and remedy Judge Greer's violations of Florida statutes and judicial canons. 

Terri's Law bypasses the grave matter of a Circuit Court judge colluding with a guardian's abuse, exploitation and neglect of an incapacitated adult. 

The Terri Schindler Schiavo guardianship case really has nothing to do with determining whether Terri wants to live or die. They do not care about Terri's wishes. They are using her to get THEIR wishes: They want to see exactly how far they can go in denying incapacitated people their many rights under the law. Scientology believes that only certain people have civil rights, and that Terri Schindler Schiavo is not one of them:

In any event, any person from 2.0 down on the tone scale [disabled] should not have, in any thinking society, any civil rights of any kind... 

(Science of Survival by L. Ron Hubbard pg 131)

Scientology believes that they are the ones who say what is legal or not! And they have been doing just that through Judge George Greer's years of illegal rulings in the Terri Schindler Schiavo guardianship case.

“Somebody some day will say ‘this is illegal.’  By then be sure the orgs [Scientology organizations] say what is legal or not.”


- L. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 4 January 1966, “LRH Relationship to Orgs


(Quote source: Dispose of Quietly)

Terri Schindler Schiavo has been denied her Constitutional and civil rights as well as her legal rights as an incapacitated person in the state of Florida. We must reverse the momentum Scientology has gained against all incapacitated persons through Judge Greer's years of illegal rulings. 

We must stop them. This can be accomplished by exposure, legal means, and public protest. There is no time to waste.
