Coulter on Schiavo

Ann Coulter has written her usual brilliant and witty article, this time focusing on the Terri Schiavo case. For all who might be confused at the legal jargon or the basic facts, Ann breaks them down for you in painful detail. Here are some exerpts: She starts with...

Democrats have called out armed federal agents in order to: (1) prevent black children from attending a public school in Little Rock, Ark. (National Guard); (2) investigate an alleged violation of federal gun laws in Waco, Texas (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms); and (3) deport a small boy to Cuba (Immigration and Naturalization Service).

So how about a Republican governor sending in the National Guard to stop an innocent American woman from being starved to death in Florida? Republicans like the military. Democrats get excited about the use of military force only when it's against Americans.

She then goes on to say, much later:

Just once, we need an elected official to stand up to a clearly incorrect ruling by a court. Any incorrect ruling will do, but my vote is for a state court that has ordered a disabled woman to be starved to death at the request of her adulterous husband.

Florida state court judge George Greer –- last heard from when he denied an order of protection to a woman weeks before her husband stabbed her to death — determined that Terri would have wanted to be starved to death based on the testimony of her husband, who was then living with another woman.

Read the rest. You'll be a better, more informed person for it.

It looks like you got your wish. On Thursday Jeb Bush ordered the state police to remove Terri Schiavo from the hospice and take her to a hospital. They were confronted at the hospice by local and county police, and then backed down. So much for law and order conservatism.

Coulter has a wonderful way of bringing clarity to an issue.

I am disheartened by the general lack of support from women's rights groups on this (not that I expected much), but still, a disabled woman being condemned by her estranged husband should have been a cause celebre.
