"here would have been no harm in letting Terri Schiavo live until the legal matters were thoroughly analyzed." I guess the time from 1998 when Michael Schiavo petitioned the court to March 18, 2005 wasn't long enough for legal matters to be analyzed. Not to mention that she was in a persistent vegetative state since Feb.25 1990. Well not according to Dr. Frist.
Lets not also forget that the legislature of Florida and the US congress passed designed to prevent the removal of Terri's feeding tube. Both these laws were overturned by the Florida supreme court and the US supreme court.
Then or course we have Jeb Bush who sent state troopers, against a judges order, to seize Terri from her hospice and have her feeding tube re-inserted. The troopers stopped only after local sheriffs told them they would be enforcing the judges order. http://www.yuricareport.com/BushSecondTerm/PoliceShowdownOverSchiavoAverted.html

Death by starvation and dehydration to a disabled American woman was legally won. This was not an end-of-life decision. This was a life ending decision.
