Sorry for those outside the US for yet another USA thread.
The Terri Schiavo question and the federal role.
Firstly the debate is not about the rights or wrongs of removing the feeding tube. It is about and connected to the views of state rights.
A lot has been said about the roe v wade case and complaints about state rights being "overruled" and that the decision should be left to the "individual state". Yet it seems to me that proponents of this theory are now the ones wishing the feds to step in.
Please try to stay away from the circumstances of Mrs. Schiavo and the difference between this and abortion..I only raise it because of the "taking life" part and .and concentrate on state rights iv's fed.
Should the right to "pull the tube" be a state issue only
just opinion needed...not an essay on the law as it stands
