Bill Frist on Families & Children
Republican Senate Majority Leader (TN, retiring 2006)
Making it clear that he was speaking as a heart surgeon, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist pronounced to his colleagues that he condemned the judicial consensus, "based on a review of the video footage which I spent an hour or so looking at last night in my office here in the Capital. And that footage, to me, depicted something very different than persistent vegetative state." This diagnosis contradicted the subsequent medical examiner's autopsy performed on Mrs. Schiavo, which reported that she was blind and her brain was "grossly abnormal," less than half its normal size.
The Christian Coalition was founded in 1989 by Dr. Pat Robertson to give Christians a voice in government. We represent millions of people of faith and enable them to have a strong, unified voice in the conversation we call democracy.
