ok has anyone else heard about this? Well basically the story is (if you dont want to read it off the site) this woman got brain damage when he heart stopped beating 15 years ago or so and has been on a feeding tube ever since. Well to make a long story short her husband wanted to remove the tube and let her die but her parents want her to stay alive. So the courts got involved and the of course good ole Jeb did what he could. Well now the law has been struck down, probably with good reason. But still, how fucking sick is this guy? I mean we arent talking about taking someone off life support we are talking about not feeding someone anymore here. She can breathe on her own. So he wants to take away her feeding tube and then let her starve to death. And to top it all off he is going to court to be able to do this. It's sick....
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida Supreme Court (news - web sites) on Thursday struck down a law that was rushed through the Legislature last fall to keep a severely brain-damaged woman hooked up to a feeding tube against her husband's wishes.
Terri Schiavo, who lives in a Clearwater nursing home, can breathe on her own but relies on a feeding and hydration tube to live. Courts have concluded she is in a "persistent vegetative state," but maneuvering over her fate has produced a closely watched right-to-die fight.
