“Terri’s law” goes Federal

From BPNews:

Sen. Mel Martinez, R.-Fla., introduced the Incapacitated Persons Legal Protection Act March 7, while Rep. Dave Weldon, R.-Fla., offered the House of Representatives version March 8. The bill numbers are S. 539 in the Senate and H.R. 1151 in the House.

The legislation would give Schiavo and other incapacitated people the legal protections often associated with death row inmates. Those protections would include the right to a “de novo review,” which is a review of the evidence by a different court. The measure is based on the constitutionally protected “writ of habeas corpus,” which enables a federal court to determine if a state court is restricting a person’s liberty.

It will be interesting to see what rationalizations the cult of Death (Liberal Democrats) will offer to stall the bill while Terri suffers? There really needs to be more media coverage on this issue. The MSM pretends Terri doesn't exist since they have the typical Liberal attitude that less-than-perfect people don't have the right to make them uncomfortable. The outrage of what Michael Schiavo through the willing assistance of Judge Greer is doing should appall everyone.
