Terri Schiavo’s Brother Joins Sam Brownback

Filed under: Election 2008,Pro-Life,Sam Brownback — Psycheout @ 9:39 pm

We already reported back in March that Terri Schiavo’s brother had wholeheartedly endorsed Sam Brownback. We also reported in May that Norma McCorvey, better known as Jane Roe in the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion (the murder of pre-born children), had also endorsed our man Sam.

Well, Bobby Schindler, Terri’s brother has taken the next logical step. Can Jane Roe (Norma McCorvey) be far behind?

Republican presidential hopeful Sam Brownback is embarking on a campaign trip with the brother of the late Terri Schiavo, whose fate touched off a political firestorm over government intervention and end-of-life issues.

The Kansas senator is less well-known than leading GOP candidates for president, but he is a favorite of anti-abortion conservatives who influence Iowa’s nominating caucuses. Brownback is calling the tour “Pro-Life, Whole-Life.”

Nice dig at the next GOP nominee for President, “less well-known.” Just you wait. Once conservatives realize that fRudy McRomney is not on their side, Sam Brownback’s star will rise.

For those of you not familiar with Terri Schiavo (are there any of you out there?), some background:

He is traveling this weekend in Iowa with Bobby Schindler, Schiavo’s brother, and Francis Bok, an escaped slave from Sudan.

Schiavo, who was in a permanent vegetative state since 1990, died in 2005 after her feeding tube was removed by court order.

Senator Brownback wisely goes on the offensive:

Recently, Brownback has criticized rivals Mitt Romney and Tom Tancredo over abortion, assailing Romney for switching from pro-abortion rights to anti-abortion rights and targeting Tancredo for taking money from donors who also support Planned Parenthood.

“I have been pro-life my whole life,” Brownback said. “Those have been consistent messages for me. I think elections are about ideas and choices, and we’re laying those out for people.”

Mark my words, if you believe in life, all life, you have no greater ally than Sam Brownback, the soft-spoken Senator from Kansas. He will not let us down. He has always been pro-life and always will be, unlike the pretenders, the MSM favorites, the so-called frontrunners.

Say another prayer for Terri, give your thanks to her loving brother, and support Senator Brownback for the GOP nomination. There is no other rational choice.

  1. Schiavo, not Schaivo. And that was such a sad story. Her poor family so tied to the past that they’d rather keep a wasted shell of a human with no consciousness or hope of recovery than let her die peacefully. Forcing someone to live long after they’ve truly died is cruel, but they did it out of love, so I feel for them.

  2. Thank you, Salmo. Although I do have a high IQ, I was diagnosed dyslexic while still in elementary school. I did the same thing to Giuliani’s name, spelling it “Guiliani.” It’s embarrassing and frustrating and I hate it so much.

    There’s plenty of other examples of my dyslexia I’ve noticed in the past. If I see a new word for the first time (such as Giuliani) I’ll see it wrong and remember it wrong in my photographic memory and then reproduce the error time and again until corrected or I discover it by accident. The result is an epiphany. Suddenly a word I’ve seen one way for years, I will see correctly for the first time.

    Words I’ve only read but never spoken or heard spoken before I have discovered to also contain letter reversals. It’s very annoying.

    Maybe I’ll find the time to do a post about dyslexia on my personal blog. Dyslexia is a very frustrating condition. I would appreciate it if anyone notices other reversal errors I make to point it out to me so I can correct them. I hope this doesn’t affect my position as a member of the B4B Team.

  3. Psycheout, I too am a wee bit dyslexic and with a decent IQ…though when I mentioned that here Crockett said it was an effect of my sinning nature (false claim by her). Coming from someone on that side, do you see it as a sin-caused disease? (either way) It really is just a condition…like ADD or ADHD or OCD or some other little grouping of letters. I understand the frustration. I lose words. Talk out of order at times, and when I get mixed up it’s hard to get back in the flow of conversation. 🙂 I find that writing a lot, and forcing yourself into conversation helps. And I read over these postings multiple times and make adjustments…grrr. There’s just some days when the concentration isn’t there and….it basically just sucks, lol.

  4. I have mild number dyslexia, which led to some serious problems with math classes. (And difficulty with number puzzles, as I mentioned in another thread.) But hey, I graduated for college Magna Cum Laude, so it worked out. Still, I feel your pain, man.

  5. Well, La Mona, it seems we have something in common. But this really isn’t the place to discuss it, unless you really want to. Check out my latest post over at Psycheout’s Portal. It’s my first stab at talking about my own dyslexia and I encourage you to post your own experience(s) there in my comment thread. Anyone else who so desires is welcome to join in.

    I take dyslexia seriously, although it does not dominate my life. G-d made me the way I am and Jesus loves even me, although I do not deserve His love. Just typing that makes me feel emotional, so I’ll stop now. Besides, I’m way off topic.

  6. I had to have someone read some of the problems on my AP Chem tests due to the numbers.

    Wow, it’s just a world full of dyslexics.

  7. Okiedah, I’ll check it out…yea, didn’t mean to be off-topic.

  8. That’s okay, but this blog is about Senator Sam Brownback, not me. It’s not about the B4B Team either. I went a little stream of consciousness there, because Salmo pointed out my mistake. Other dyslexics (and there’s a full range from mild to severe) will understand.

    So back on topic folks! Go to my blog if you wish to discuss dyslexia. Thanks.

  9. I believe that life is precious, and that one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century and beyond has been the gradual but steady decline in society’s respect for human life. Medical advances are a good thing, but I think they’ve also had the detriment of making people take their lives and their health for granted. When there’s a “quick fix” for everything from a hangover to fertility problems, it makes it much easier for people to abuse themselves without considering that there are consequences both for themelves personally and for society at large.

  10. So Schiavo’s brother supports our Sam. This can only recommend him to the rest of the country, which was so appalled that no one was watering her daily. I always think of those Youths for Christ who came through for Terri by the busload and tried to march into the hospital, each one with a glass of water. But the police stopped them, and so she wilted and died. Where was God that day? Where was my Jesus?

  11. […] edition comes from Crossroads Church in Des Moines, Iowa. Terri Shiavo’s brother, Bobby, joins Sam on the campaign trail as he discusses his “pro-life, whole life” […]
