Feeding tube can go

The week's news at a glance.

Tampa

A Florida judge this week voided a law that gave Gov. Jeb Bush the power to keep a brain-damaged woman alive against her husband’s wishes. Terri Schiavo has depended on a feeding tube to survive since she suffered irreversible brain damage when her heart temporarily stopped in 1990. Her husband, Michael, had the tube removed last year after winning a court fight with her parents. Bush, empowered by the hastily approved law, ordered the tube reinserted. But Circuit Judge Douglas Baird ruled this week that the law let the governor “summarily deprive Florida citizens of their constitutional right to privacy.” A spokesman said Bush would appeal.
