People who oppose the death penalty should also be opposing Schiavo. She suffered from incompetent lawyering in the court case that established “facts” inimical to her interest (as frequently happens in criminal cases where the defendant can’t afford a good lawyer). All subsequent cases were simply about the question of whether proper procedure was followed in the first case (and it was). Now she has been sentenced to die in a cruel and unusal manner.
