Murder from the bench

(I had a good post going earlier, and then Mozilla crashed on me. Oops...)

Judge Greer has ordered that Terri Schiavo not be given food or water even when the feeding tube has been removed. This is judicial murder. We must ALL pray that Florida's House Bill 523 passes.

House Bill 523 does a very simple thing: it requires that a person's choice to refuse medical care be spelled out in writing. While I hope that this will be enough, I think Judge Greer is too committed to murder to turn back. I suspect that he will try to rule the law unconstitutional by declaring that HB 523 violates the right to die. One can only hope that the Florida Court of Appeals will contain Greer.
