Watching her die

Governor Jeb Bush Pressured to Take Terri Schiavo Into Custody
After a ruling by Circuit Court Judge George Greer on Thursday preventing the Florida Department of Children and Families from protecting Terri, Bush indicated he would not violate Judge Greer's order.
Attorneys for Bush appealed the decision to a Florida appeals court and the Florida Supreme Court and lost both times.
Those decisions prompted Bush to say he has no recourse to protect Terri.

See: Management of Hunger in the United States
In 1990 the United Nations (UN) State of the World assigned nutrition as an international statute and a human right. Two articles developed at this session of United Nations recognized that proper, adequate nutrition combats disease and malnutrition, and that every child in the world has the right to live in an environment which provides adequate food and clean, safe drinking water. These policies were incorporated and expanded in the 1992 U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child with United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) developing specific goals to reach the world’s population by the year 2000
How come the Supreme Court isn't quoting international law on this issue?
