What about Terri Schiavo?
Same basic principle, same basic course of action.
Then-Governor Bush or then-Attorney General Charlie Crist both had not only the authority but the DUTY to intervene and save Terri's life. In the absence of action on the part of these two men, former President George W. Bush should have intervened. Terri was murdered, by court order(!), and our leaders stood by and let it happen.

Once again we remind you, murder can never be legal.
