States' Rights

A HUGE part of my opposition to abortion is due to my vehement belief that Roe v Wade was a ludicrously flawed decision that never should have been allowed, because it was a clear instance of the federal government interfering in an issue that should be left to the states. By federally "protecting" abortion, the states were prevented from enforcing laws that disallow it. That seems fundamentally wrong to me.

Now, the federal government has intervened again. In the Terri Schiavo case, the President has passed a bill allowing the Schindler's to take the fight for their daughter's life into a federal court, despite the fact that it has been ruled on *numerous* times by Florida state and local courts. Again, this strikes me as fundamentally wrong.

Regardless of your personal views on the Sciavo case, **do you think that the federal government was right to intervene in this matter?** Do you support any action the government takes in trying to preserve life? Or, do you think there should be some consistency in just how much the gov't is allowed to butt in to issues typically handled by the states?
