It's good to have him on our side.
Oh BOO HOO!
We have over a MILLION abortions a year and we are upset over an ADULT???
Give me a break!
Hentoff sums it up perfectly.
Terri's individual case was surely a states rights case and as such I will NOT voluntarily support the state of Florida. What was a federal case though is the federal condemnation of the Nazi tactic of ridding society of innocent, but undesirable citizens employed by the state of Florida.
This practice MUST be condemned and banned by the United States government regardless of what the individual states do.
Being a disabled person myself if this practice is allowed to spread then it is only a matter of time for me.

More on the judiciary. I received this via e-mail from frc.org:
Give 'Em War, Schumer Calls for Camp David Summit
Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who last week called for war
on ANY nominee President Bush might appoint to the Supreme
Court, now wishes to negotiate at Camp David with the
President on picking a "consensus" judicial nominee.
Merriam-Webster Online defines consensus as the judgment
arrived at by most of those concerned. The U.S.
Constitution grants the sole power of nominating a Supreme
Court justice to the President and allows the Senate
(currently being controlled by the President's own party)
to then vote on that nominee. Any effort by the President
to include the Senate's minority party, the Democrats, is
done out of President Bush's goodwill.
Senator Schumer, in an op-ed published today in the New
York Daily News, cites President Bill Clinton nominee Ruth
Bader Ginsburg as an example of a "consensus candidate."
Justice Ginsburg had a long history of liberal activism
before joining the Supreme Court, including advocating for
the elimination of Mother's and Father's Day. Schumer's
words of last week, refusing to support any nominee put
forth by the President, belie any chatter this week about
"peace talks" and "consensus." This week FRC is airing
radio ads in selected markets calling for Senate Judiciary
Members Schumer and Ted Kennedy (D-MA) to recuse themselves
from Supreme Court nomination hearings. These Senators
have already polluted the process of judicial nominations -
they should not be allowed to run roughshod over the U.S.
