Told you people not to ever trust the fed judicial system. Nice game they played.
From the court ruling:
"A popular epithet directed by some members of society, including some members of Congress, toward the judiciary involves the denunciation of activist judges. Generally, the definition of an activist judge is one who decides the outcome of a controversy before him according to personal conviction, even one sincerely held, as opposed to the dictates of the law as constrained by legal precedent and, ultimately, our Constitution. In resolving the Schiavo controversy it is my judgment that, despite sincere and altruistic motivation, the legislative and executive branches of our government have acted in a manner demonstrably at odds with our Founding Fathers blueprint for the governance of a free people our Constitution. Since I have sworn, as have they, to uphold and defend that Covenant, I must respectfully concur in the denial of the request for rehearing en banc. I conclude that Pub. L.109-3 (the Act) is unconstitutional and, therefore, this court and the district court are without jurisdiction in this case under that special Act and should refuse to exercise any jurisdiction that we may otherwise have in this case."

the parents have no standing in the eyes of the law ....
the spouse has the rights .....
You supporters of what Congress did here should read and re-read this. The fallout will last for years!
Well, of course. The spouse should always have rights over and above those of parents, be it the husband or wife.
Don't you support family values and the sanctity of marriage?
Parents shouldn't be allowed to interfere with the privacy and marital rights of a married couple.
isn't that what i just said?
Lol Republicans are going to get hammered in '06.
Isn't this in one form or another what has been said time after time?
Oh I know, ITT has come to enlighten us. Gee thanks.
I'm sorry if I misunderstood you. I'm glad you support the right of the spouse to make the decision in such personal matters. Some here don't. They think parents should have veto power over the wife or husband.
