.- Yesterday, the Supreme Court denied an appeal to reinstate a Florida law, which was passed to keep brain damaged Terri Schiavo hooked up to a feeding tube. The rejection may now clear the way for the tube’s removal.
Last fall, the Florida Supreme Court had struck down the law, and the U.S. Supreme Court was being considered by some the last hope for the law to be reinstated.
Shiavo’s husband, Michael Shiavo contends that his wife, who has been in the brain damaged state for the last ten years resulting from an eating disorder, would not have wanted to be kept alive.
The woman’s parents however, say that there daughter said no such thing and deserves the right to live.
Although he doesn’t know what the next step will be, Robert Schindler, Terri’s father commented Monday that, "We're going to fight for her as much as we can fight for her.”
