A federal appeals court refused early Wednesday to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube, denying the latest emergency request by the severely brain-damaged woman’s parents to keep her alive.
A panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals said in a 2-1 ruling that the parents “failed to demonstrate a substantial case on the merits of any of their claims.”
You didn’t really think that President Bush and company were trying to save her, did you? If the president had any intention of doing so, he would have written an Executive Order. The Congressional gambit was simply a means of allowing the politicians to wash their hands of responsibility for her starvation.
Next up: the elderly.
