A federal appeal court today refused to order the reinsertion of the feeding tube of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged woman at the centre of a furious right-to-die battle.Why won't these people listen to our wise, compassionate leaders who know best, and simply do what they're told?
In the latest round of extraordinary legal wrangling, a three-judge panel in Atlanta found by majority verdict that the parents "failed to demonstrate a substantial case on the merits of any of their claims".
"There is no denying the absolute tragedy that has befallen Mrs Schiavo," the ruling said. "We all have our own family, our own loved ones, and our own children. However, we are called upon to make a collective, objective decision concerning a question of law."
