Dogz is playing with you because it disdains pro-lifers. There is a thin facade of ‘protect the alive unborn’ but in the end the protection is a situational transaction not related to unalienable rights, as the poster’s vacuous-soul posts indicate. This poster has a template of why Terri should be put down and ignores any of the points regarding parents that wanted to care for Terri, any points that support she was not brain dead albeit severely retarded via neglect carried out over years by the very guardian a sick dead-soul judge protected. And there is so much more, but be advised there are dead-soul liars at FR who enjoy the anguish they can generate by insulting the very memory of Terri Schiavo.
Thank you. I was beginning to take it personally. At the time, I followed Terri’s case closely because I lived in Florida for many years. Under the circumstances, I still believe congress did the right thing getting involved. I feel very sorry for her family who loved her so much. Very sad story indeed.
On many social issues, I may not be as conservative as some but I am strongly Pro Life and oppose abortion in all its forms.
My problem with the Schiavo case is that it was a far over reach of Federal Powers and provided Terri with protections of the Federal Government that have not been afforded others that were or are in a similar situation.
So, what is it that made Terri more Equal than others in the eyes of the Federal Government?
Should the U.S. Congress intervene in all cases where a family is in disagreement over the continued medical treatment of a family member? If not, why should those people not be afforded the rights under the Equal Protection Clause?
After all, Terri had the right to be the subject of a Special Session of Congress however, there are thousands of people in hospices at this very moment that will not have that same protection.
