Terri Schiavo: The Liberal Final Solution to Social Security?

Wednesday, 23 March 2005 12:00 AM

Can you think of any ideas national Democrats have offered?" is the taunt of a new television ad praising Bush's initiative.

Enter Terri Schiavo. If she dies in the next few days, a precedent is established that a judge can withhold food and water from a person without documentary evidence of the person's wishes.

Could it be that this is the liberal solution to the impending social security crisis? Unelected, unaccountable judges can defy the law, the Congress, and the president and starve "undesirables" to death.

It does not matter that the more credible doctors believe that the person can be rehabilitated: the judge can simply rule the evidence inadmissible and turn to a doctor of his own choosing. In other words, the liberal solution is to fix the problem in the same way it was created. Just as killing more than forty-million babies since 1973 has created a shortage of workers to pay benefits, state-sponsored euthanasia can equally trim the population of beneficiaries.

The constitutional implications are equally ominous. A federal judge ordered by Congress to hold a new trial has simply ruled that he does not believe that Terri's parents could win their case. He has therefore defied a congressional mandate in refusing to conduct the trial, which of course would have required restoring the feeding tube.

Every election year, Democrats attempt to frighten senior citizens with threats that Republicans would cut off their benefits. Now senior citizens have something new to be scared of: judges who would cut off their food supply.
