Too Bad Terri's Not a Terrorist or a Condemned Murderer: "In 1984, the New Hampshire Supreme Court upheld a trial court order that authorized a prison warden to feed and nourish a prison inmate over his objection, even though he was mentally competent and wanted to die by starvation. Here we have a judge ordering the removal of food and water to cause starvation. Even if we knew that's what Terri wants, Florida law makes aiding and abetting a suicide a felony, and there's no black-robed exemption.

"Terri Schiavo isn't dying from a disease, she isn't on a ventilator, she doesn't meet Florida's definition of 'persistent vegetative state,' and she committed no crime. She's being killed by a judge on the flimsiest of evidence."
