Schiavo Cases Update

The Supreme Court refused to hear the Schindler's appeal concerning their daughter Terri Schiavo.  The Justices did not issue a legal opinion explaining the reason for their decision and there was no written dissent either.

The New York Times also reports on the judiciary's role in this saga.  And, MSNBC has a terrific question and answer session with the Rev. John J. Paris, a Professor at Boston College and a jesuit, who provides a slightly different Catholic perspective on the Schiavo case.  [bm]
