Supreme Court Denial of Schiavo Case Right in Line With Their Philosophy

Surprise surprise, the Supreme Court has denied a petition by Bob and Mary Schindler to hear the case regarding their daughter, Terri Schiavo, whose feeding tube was removed last Friday.

According to an AP report, "justices didn't explain their decision."

They didn't have to.

It seems that our esteemed justices do what they do in light of what the "international community" thinks is right. This was apparent in their recent ruling banning the death penalty for anyone under the age of 18. "Our determination finds confirmation in the stark reality that the United States is the only country in the world that continues to give official sanction to the juvenile death penalty," wrote Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Kennedy is obviously in the same camp as former presidential candidate John Kerry, who was constantly bringing up the idea that we should seek the approval of the world at large.

The Schiavo case has sparked worldwide interest, with various international polls showing comfortable majorities against intervention in what many term a "family affair."

Some may point out that polls here in the U.S. also show the majority against government "meddling." However, one such poll conducted by ABC posed the question with innacuracy, including saying Schiavo was on life support when she only had a feeding tube, being able to otherwise function without technological support. How can people give accurate feedback if they are given inaccurate information?

The so-called quality of her life is irrelevant here.

"Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" should count for all citizens. Terri Schiavo did not have a living will in place. Her husband Michael, having been living with another woman and fathering her children for ten or so years, has questionable motives in pushing for Terri's death. However, no court seems to have examined this aspect of the case.

Barring a miracle, Terri will likely die soon. I hope "world opinion" was worth it.
