Where Are You, George Greer?
1. Man strangles wife.
2. Wife suffers oxygen deprivation brain damage.
3. Wife receives food through feeding tube to stay alive.
4. Court considers removing tube.
Say, haven't we seen this story before? But now there is a new twist. According to a story published by ABC News International, it seems that in Melbourne, Australia, it is considered a crime to murder your wife and move in with a floozy. So unlike Michael Schiavo, who was being encouraged by the court of Judge George Greer to finish the job, Joe Korp is desperately trying to keep his wife, Maria alive. Oh what a difference a couple of hemispheres can make!
There is a brilliant stroke of logic that eluded the Jurist Marquis De Sade of Pinellas County. In the Land Down Under, Dr. Leslie Cannold, a bioethicist at the University of Melbourne openly questions whether Joe Korp is capable of acting in the best interests of his wife, Maria. She said Korp's husband "clearly has a conflict of interest" because he could face a murder charge if she dies.
But in the Pinellas County, Florida, U.S.A., that logic does not apply.
