Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Supreme Court this week rejected Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s attempt to keep alive a severely brain-damaged woman, Terri Schiavo, using a feeding tube. Schiavo’s husband, Michael, says she wouldn’t want to be kept alive artificially. He had the tube removed in 2003, but within days the Florida legislature had passed a law allowing Bush to order doctors to reinsert it. Florida courts later ruled that Bush had no right to intervene—a finding upheld by the Supreme Court this week. Michael Schiavo plans to remove the tube again, as early as next month. Terri Schiavo’s father, Robert Schindler, claims his son-in-law merely wants to inherit her estate and remarry. “It’s judicial homicide,” he said.
