Cong. Patrick Kennedy votes against Schiavo: No federal court intervention!

"Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, a Democrat (RI), voted against the legislation passed by Congress early yesterday, by a vote of 203 to 58, while Rep. James R. Langevin, also a Democrat (RI)voted to allow a federal court to intervene.
Kennedy stated: "For over two centuries, Congress has seen fit to stay out of such situations because, as our founders understood, the Halls of Congress are not the place to make these personal family decisions," Kennedy said in a statement. "Family members should be the people making hard decisions about their loved ones."

PADRE POINT: Fitting words from Kennedy during Holy Week...sounds like another politician:
"I am innocent of this man's blood; see to it yourselves (Pontius Pilate)."
