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.
    The judge did not INITIATE that... her HUSBAND did. This was the direct result of her husbands legal fight to have the tube removed.. NOT an arbitrary decision by the court or the insurance company or what have you.

    Terri Schiavo case - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Terri Schiavo case (surname pronounced /ˈʃaɪvoʊ/) was a legal battle between the husband and the parents of Teresa Marie "Terri" Schiavo that lasted from 1998 to 2005. At issue was whether the equipment that had been used to sustain her life since 1990 specifically a feeding tube should be disconnected, thereby allowing her to die.

    Hmm. Does that mean that Candians should not post opinions about how we Americans handle our business? 'Cause that's seriously going to limit your ability to post in a whole lot of threads around here. But hey... if that's what you want...

    it appears to matter to the parents.

    So with nationalized healthcare, a judge gets to make the decisions about the medical care for your children.

    Hmmm. I think I'll pass. Kinda sounds like one of those "death panels".
    Let's face it, as a conservative, you just prefer your death panels be privatized knowing that someone makes a profit on your demise...

    I do not believe that was the case here, as you'd know if you read any of the links posted.

    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.
    I've explained that several times. they are unable to comprehend.

    Re: Canadian Family in Life Support Battle Denied Request for Hospital Transfer

    I feel terrible for the family. I understand their desperation. However, life-and-death choices are made here in America every day. Private insurance companies here in the states would probably have notified the family that they would no longer cover the cost of artificially extending the baby's life or paying for an experimental procedure (which it was).

    This is a terrible tragedy, in which one outcome is certain. I will say that I think using this tragedy for a political reason, i.e. attacking Obama's health care, while pretending that nothing of the sort happens here was completely disingenuous. Trying to portray the Schivo case as completely different, when in fact a judge decided whose wishes would be legally accepted, upon which time public figures all over the country, including the state's governor, tried to overturn what that judge had decided and the rights of her legal guardian for their own partisian ideology is beyond disingenous.

    The husband won in court.... the government TRIED to intervene, and failed. The husbands decision was enforced... as it should have been.
