Nope, I would wish I had a friend that would take care of things. BTW bro, I do. He's my offline friend, very similar to you. I'm covered.
what is this talk about congress getting involved. they have the legal right to do so so what are you all crying about? should we start taking out parts of the constitution that some people don't think are correct?
Attorneys for Michael Schiavo told CNN Monday they would argue the new legislation represents the intrusion of Congress and the president into both a private family matter and a state court system.
"We feel confident that the federal courts are not going to find this act constitutional," attorney Deborah Bushnell told CNN.
The extraordinary session had supporters, primarily Republicans, arguing that the issue was Schiavo's "right to life," while a Democrat warned that passing the measure would "undermine over 200 years of jurisprudence."
"I think it's an invasion to the American people when you make a private decision in a family matter. They're thumbing their nose up to the American people and the Constitution," he said on CNN. "This is a sad day for Terri, and it's a sad day for every American in this country, and people should be outraged."
The bitter legal debate has resulted in more than a dozen state court decisions. The battle appeared to reach a climax Friday when the Florida trial judge ordered Schiavo's tube removed, rejecting a House panel's efforts to subpoena the woman, her husband and others for a hearing. The U.S. Supreme Court later rejected the House's appeal to intervene in the case.
