Terri Schiavo's death sentence reinstated

Once again, Judge George Greer has ordered the death of Terri Schiavo, reversing a brief reprieve for the brain-damaged -- but otherwise healthy -- Florida woman:
The presiding judge in the case of Terri Schiavo ruled Friday that the feeding tube keeping the brain-damaged woman alive must be removed despite efforts by congressional Republicans to block the move by seeking her appearance at hearings. Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer refused a request from U.S. House attorneys to delay the removal, which he had previously ordered to take place at 1 p.m. EST. Greer determined that it should go forward about an hour after another judge issued a temporary delay blocking the tube's removal. "I have had no cogent reason why the (congressional) committee should intervene," Pinellas Circuit Court Judge George Greer told attorneys in a conference call, adding that last-minute action by Congress does not invalidate years of court rulings.
You want a cogent reason why someone should intervene? Because if they don't, you're going to kill her.
