Federal Hearing on Terri Schiavo

Ed at Media Culpa went to the 3:00 p.m. hearing before Judge Whittemore yesterday in Tampa. Here's his description of it. It doesn't look good for Terri Schiavo at this point (3 days without food and water).

Ed also thinks that the law Congress passed is faulty since it doesn't contain this section:


Upon the filing of a suit or claim under this Act, the District Court may issue a stay of any State court order authorizing or directing the withholding or withdrawal of food, fluids, or medical treatment necessary to sustain the life of Theresa Marie Schiavo pending the determination of the suit.

In his words, "Congress blew it."
