RPCUS Addresses Letter to President George Bush

Honorable President George Bush:

Covenant Presbytery of the Reformed Presbyterian Church In The United States does formally register its grievance regarding the death of Terri Schiavo. We unanimously declare her death to be a national tragedy, which will have tremendous moral implications for the future welfare of this nation. Proverbs 14:34 states, "Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people." We do hereby petition the executive, the legislative, and the judicial branches of the federal government to repent of their failure to carry out their moral and constitutional responsibility to save human life.
