ejsant BS: Vegetative Woman Shuts Down US Gov't... (213* d) RE: BS: Vegetative Woman Shuts Down US Gov't... 23 Mar 05


Greetings John Hardly,

I think it is you that need "Get a clue" as over a dozen Judges in the Florida Judicial system have determined that indeed Terri's wishes were to not sustain her life in this fashion. This by default is a confirmation of her "Living Will". And yet there is still argument over the application of her wishes. Prior to the spurious intervention of the Congress, the United States Supreme Court decided to not hear the case. In effect affirming the Florida Court's actions and decisions. Now, post this asinine action of Congress, a Federal Court has still twice affirmed the Florida Court's decision. At what point do we follow the established system and accept the decisions even if they are not in agreement with our own? Or do we simply continue to pressure Congress to succumb to minority interests and change the rules depending upon their own personal philosophies or those of a perceived voting block? And if we do that what assurances do we then have that other aspects of our freedoms will not come under direct attack in promoting other minority interests?

Would you like another to challenge your "Living Will" and sustain your life in direct defiance of your wishes? The action of our Congress this past weekend clearly opens that door. Think about it.

Peace,
Ed
