Krauthammer Speaks

Charles Krauthammer has a great op-ed piece on the Terri Schiavo case, and I find that, as usual, he lays it all out in a clear and logical manner. His concluding suggestion is one that I believe should be seriously considered for the future.

It's often been said that hard cases make for bad law, and this one certainly hasn't been an exception to that rule. When the Congress intervened in what was essentially a states law case, it's the lip of a very slippery slope for all of us.
However, I can see where the main Florida State Court judge was arbitrarily using only one side's "evidence" in making his decisions, and I don't see any other venue where succor could have come from. As Mr Krauthammer stated, we're faced making a choice between a legal travesty and a human tragedy,
Mr. Krauthammer was correct when he said that no matter the result, there is no good outcome to this case.
