A Husband's Right To Choose?

I was just writing a comment in another blog (the excellent Between Two Worlds), and some of my thoughts were inspired by the comments of Michael Schiavo on Larry King Live:

M. Schiavo. This is not about them, it's about Terri. I've also said that in court. We didn't know what Terri wanted, this is what we want...

Not usre if it was a slip of the tounge or not, but as there are several others who are willing (and have) sworn Terri wanted differently, the best that can be said is that Judge Greer has decided Terri's death based on nothing more than hearsay, and not very strong hearsay at that...Here were my comments:

Appreciate all you are writing on this - it's gut-wrenching and deeply troubling, the whole Schiavo case. I even started my own blog to be able to vent about it many people are being so moved by it - but none in the judiciary it seems (save the notable exceptions of a couple in the 11th Circuit Appeals Court. How in the world can justice be so blind. We'll save cows, or even onions (as Hugh Hewitt pointed out yesterday), but not a life. It's no surprise, perhaps, as the most vulnerable have been being killed en masse for the last 30 odd years (via abortion) - seems that in addition to a woman's right to choose, we now have a profligate, adulterous, unfaithful husband's right to choose...

I'm truly disgusted and horrified by the way this defenseless woman has been not only neglected, but conspired against by the very ones who are meant to protect her...
