Killing Terri

I've tried to avoid commenting on it, but Friday's news that Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was being pulled, coupled with the depravity of a bioethics expert for MSNBC, pushed me over the edge.

The column is titled, "Killing Terri" and it is published today at FreeMarketNews.com. Here is the actual link: http://www.freemarketnews.com/pview/77/1178/html/index.php

You just might be shocked by what I have to say in this column -- it's unlike any other I've written for publication.

What I didn't say in that article (the kind of things you'd expect me to talk about)... I do believe State law should've protected Terri. I do believe her husband should've accepted the various offers of assistance which have been made to him. However, I do believe that federal government involvement and a federal law on this question are un-Constitutional. In fact, I'll go one step further and say that more than likely a "Terri's Law" would cause brand new problems that would eventually hurt many families.

After all, that's the only thing the federal government seems to be good at these days -- harm.
