Schiavo's tube not to be re-inserted...Usual suspects rejoice..

A federal judge ruled against life today. Yes, a federal judge has been complicit in advocating the tortured death of Terri Schiavo to cater to her estranged husband's wishes. The culture of life has been dealt a death blow today. Literally. Predictably, the usual suspects rejoice:

Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, praised the ruling: "What this judge did is protect the freedom of people to make their own end-of-life decisions without the intrusion of politicians."

Isn't it something how the ACLU rejoices when the government intrudes to limit rights on other issues, such as second amendment rights, freedom of speech, or freedom of religion, rights expressly enumerated in the Constitution, and then complain when the government attempts to "intrude" to protect one of the most basic God-given rights of all--the right to live:

"We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." - Thomas Jefferson

Just what part of unalienable don't the Culture of Death ghouls understand? Why do they rejoice when a baby is aborted? Why do they rejoice when a vulnerable individual; by many accounts still able to experience joy and pain, is deprived of her right to live and left to die a miserable death that if visited on an animal would result in at least incarceration? Thomas Jefferson did not use the word life as a mere throwaway word. It was not placed first amongst the unalienable rights on accident. One must wonder--have those who espouse the culture of death not learned their lessons from history? Or are they, in their sick and demented minds, actually trying to emulate the darker passages of our past?

Has the world gone completely mad?

One could only look on in amazed disbelief, and wonder.
