Fr. Rob Johansen is back from a blogging hiatus and he’s got the latest about Terri Schiavo.
As many of you already no doubt know, yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court declared that it would not hear Florida governor Jeb Bush’s appeal on behalf of Terri’s Law, the law which enabled him to intervene to save Terri’s life.
This is without doubt a setback for the Schindlers, and this pretty well spells the end for Terri’s Law. I can’t say I’m very surprised, as I always thought it was unlikely that the U.S. Supreme Court would involve itself in a question regarding Florida state law.
While the decision is a setback and disappointment, this is not the end of the road. It’s not time to start panicking yet.
