Bill of Rights

Article XIV.

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

I was just wondering if this still applies. It strikes me as completely shameful that the judiciary in this country can find it in their hearts to give food and water to the likes of Scott Peterson and others on death row while they await their "due process", yet they allow Terri Schiavo to starve to death during hers. I would be willing to bet that Scott Peterson will be old and grey before the appeals process runs out on his murder conviction. It's too sad that Terri Schiavo will probably not be afforded the same luxury given him. She, unlike him, certainly deserves it. My heart breaks for you, Terri Schiavo, and for all those who have shared life with you.
May God be with you all!
