I had a brother who died from cancer. He had to be removed from life support. But we would never have “starved” him to death.

The courts who so boldly upheld or refused to review Terri’s case were cowardly. There was no reason they could not have decreed that while Terri’s wishes must be followed, a more humane manner of death should be implemented.

They abused their powers by indifference. Therefore the President, Congress, and the Governor of Florida were right to attempt to intervene. However, our American courts seem to be above the “separation of powers” and “checks and balances” guaranteed by the Constitution.

If you will review the major court cases below you will see that the courts have invalidated a legislature’s laws and legislated from the bench on several occasions, thus violating the “seperation of powers”

The issue here was never about violating the sanctity of marriage. It was about protecting individual rights and rights of the disabled. It was also about establishing a humane manner of carrying out the wishes of the dying.
