Supreme dissapointment

Two reports about the Supreme Court made the news this morning. The first, regarding the "Choose Life" license plates being opposed by pro-death groups (Hey, if they were really "pro-choice" why would they object to the message "Choose Life"?) I wanted to find more information than just the fact that the Supreme Court refused to hear the case, but my usual research sources are unavailable. On the surface, though I can't imagine what's going through their heads. The pro-deaths groups have the same opportunity to apply for license plates the way Choose Life, Inc did. The same license plates are legal in Florida, but illegal, now, in South Carolina. Rather than settle the unsettling disparity in the laws, the SC took the cowards way out and ran.

The second case involves Terri Schiavo, a woman the pro-euthanasia people, as well as her estranged husband, have desperately wanted to murder for years now. Florida enacted a new law preventing the courts from allowing someone to be murdered when they have no proper "living will" (a very evil example of double speak, isn't it). The state was sued, and without allowing the state to actually defend itself in court (much like Terri herself has not yet been allowed to defend herself) the Florida courts ruled the law un-Constitutional - more than likely because it took power away from them. Judges seem to have this idea that balance of power is only achieved when the court get to decided anything and everything.

The Supreme Court ducked beneath the bench on this one, too. There are still avenues left to keep Terri from being murdered, but the unethical reaches the pro-death people as well as her greedy husband have taken is appalling.

I wish you were a Justice, Jack! Maybe there be some justice for targets of judicial murder like Terri.
