Irrevocable Choice

Irrevocable Choice is a blog about life issues. Those in favor of legalized abortion often use the word "choice." Once completed, the "choice" to destroy a human life either via abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research is IRREVOCABLE. It is PERMANENT. It can NEVER be undone. The innocent life can NEVER be restored.

Criminal Rights Groups, WHERE ARE YOU??

When someone has committed violent crimes (murder, rape, etc.) there always seem to be groups of people, occasionally including celebrities, who are there to make sure the criminal gets every right he/she is entitled to, and then some! Where are these groups now that an INNOCENT person is being given the death penalty for NO reason?
As far as I'm concerned, since these groups could not show any compassion or concern for an innocent person, I will have to now suspect all of their arguments in favor of convicted criminals.

In THIS particular death penalty case, even if the law DID allow the governor to grant clemency (as a governor can for convicted CRIMINALS), it would be a useless gesture. A court would simply strike down the governor's clemency with some sort of excuse about "violating the separation of powers" or some such.

Most death row inmates languish on death row for more than fifteen years. Terri Schiavo has languished on death row (for NO crime whatsoever) for only fifteen years. Without Divine Intervention, at this point, the death sentence will be imposed for Terri Schiavo on March 18th.

Actually, in my opinion, in the course of DOING THEIR JOB and EXERCISING THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS, if the legislative or executive branch does something a judge does not like, it suddenly becomes a "violation of the separation of powers." Indeed, there IS a separation of powers. In my opinion, the courts have SEPARATED the legislative and executive branches from most of their Constitutional powers.
