Stop grandstanding on the Schiavo tragedy ...

     Americans can have different personal opinions about what should happen to Terri Schiavo—life is precious, and this case raises some important ethical questions. But we can all agree that that's what the courts are for: to make the call in difficult circumstances. That's why Congress' interference is such an ugly and shameful incident of political grandstanding. There's no legislative purpose here, just a blatant attempt to play politics with someone's life ...

     We need to tell Congress that this kind of pandering and demagoguery will not stand. That's why we're sending this petition to Congress. The full text of the petition reads:

"Congress must stop grandstanding on the Schiavo tragedy, and move on to the legislative business facing our country."

i agree it is a political grandstanding but i don't agree with the courts making this decision. I is the families place to make the decision. and by law the parents only make the decision if their child is unmarried. but she is married so the husband gets to make the decision. even though i don't think that she should be murdered like that, i would have to support the husband who wants to pull out the feeding tube, he has the legal right to pull it so they shouldn't keep dragging it out.
