Terri’s Law rejected again

The week's news at a glance.

Tallahassee

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush this week said that he would take his campaign to keep a severely brain-damaged woman alive to the U.S. Supreme Court. The woman, Terri Schiavo, was left in a vegetative state 14 years ago when her heart briefly stopped beating. She can breathe on her own but needs a feeding tube to survive. Schiavo’s husband, Michael, removed the tube last year, but Bush and state lawmakers, with the support of Schiavo’s parents, rushed to approve a law ordering that the tube be reinserted. Florida’s Supreme Court has now ruled that politicians had no right to overrule Schiavo’s husband. He can remove the feeding tube again, though he must wait two months to provide time for one more appeal.
