Terri’s Fight

  /   Saturday September 25, 2004  

The Florida Supreme Court has ruled Terri’s law unconstitutional. If something isn’t done soon, Terri Schiavo could face death by starvation. Some of the readings of the opinion show that the court has appeared to say what sounds to me like “How dare the legislation and governor pass a law to override our authority! Judges rule!”

This is outrageous. The purpose of the judiciary is to interpret laws. If in fact such an interpretation of law and constitution is shown to be contrary to what the people intend, then our elected representatives have the right to pass new laws to ensure that the law serves its purpose. Otherwise, we do not have democracy, but instead we have a monarchy of judges. So much for checks and balances.
