Yes, I agree. However, should the House and Senate enter into special session when ever their is a family dispute regarding the decision to terminate life support of have an abortion?
If that is not the case, what made Terri more important than the hundreds of thousands of people that have been pulled from live support over the last three years?
Unfortunately, abortion remains perfectly legal, so that isn’t at issue. As for family disputes involving removing someone from life support, the Shiavo case was different because her husband was her guardian and it was argued that he did not have her best interests at heart because he would benefit if she died. I guess her case is a good reason to consider a living will or document stating if you do want to be kept alive. IMO, the judge in her case made very bad rulings and eventually congress decided to get involved. They were not mandated to, they chose to and I believe they did the right thing under the circumstances.
The Congress is a non-judicial body, and most Americans either have enough sense, or know viscerally, that using it in that manner is tyranny.
There are rights that lack a remedy. Mrs. Schiavo's situation AFTER the Florida executive and judicial processes had run their course was one such situation.
