The Florida Supreme Court has overturned Terri’s Law, clearing the way for Michael Schiavo to finally have his wife killed so he can go on with his life.
Evidently, the court has decided that it is more important to prevent the uppity legislature and governor from second-guessing judges. God forbid that the elected representatives of the people actually have a say in how they are governed. The court upholds the idea that the judicial system is the check on the legislative and executive branches, but where is the check and balance on the courts?
It’s a scary day when you realize that on a judge’s order an innocent person can be ordered to be killed simply because that person isn’t capable of objecting for herself. Where has freedom gone? It’s a sad day for both Terri and our Constitution. (Meanwhile you have the civil libertarians howling about how the Patriot Act takes away terrorists’ rights. A weird world.)
