    As I already pointed out, the Sciavo case was the husband petitioning the court to intervene... the Canada case was the government health authority initiating the intervention requset with the courts.

    on April 24, 2001 Terri's feeding tube was removed for the first time, only to be reinserted several days later.

    On February 25, 2005, a Pinellas County judge ordered the removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube. Several appeals and federal government intervention followed, which included U.S. President George W. Bush returning to Washington D.C. to sign legislation designed to keep her alive. After all attempts at appeals through the federal court system were unsuccessful, Schiavo's feeding tube was disconnected on March 18, 2005. She died at a Pinellas Park hospice on March 31.

Because of this, the fact remains that at some point, whether the financing is public or private, we have to hold our nose and let someone die. We can argue that its not right to do so, and its true, its not right, but circumstances aren't perfect and we are forced to only do what good we can. Because of this, it is appropriate to withdraw care after a certain point assuming ethical guidelines are followed.

    You recollection of events is seriously lacking. Even Jeb got his hands into the whole ordeal.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    The Libbos that have mentioned Terry Schiavo, need to go back and re-educate themselves on the circumstances of that case.

    It had nothing to do with whether, or not, her life support could be removed. It had to do with who could make the decision to remove it, or not remove it.

    Right. So her husband won his case and then what happened? HINT: Jeb Bush got involved.

    Yes, but at the end of the day, it had to do with who had the right to say if she lived, or died; the parents, or her husband.

    No. The husband won in court. Then the government intervened. I'm not sure why that is difficult for you to understand.

    Possibly because it's factual...
