Schiavo's parents pin hope on bill

TALLAHASSEE -- With a judge scheduled to pull Terri Schiavo's life-giving feeding tube in less than a week, her family lobbied state lawmakers Sunday to again intervene in the internationally watched right-to-die case.

Joined by 300 at a rally at the foot of the Capitol, they urged the Florida Legislature to move quickly on a bill that supporters say could prevent the severely brain-damaged woman's impending death.

Legislators must work quickly to pass the bill so Gov. Bush can sign it. If you value life, then you have to be in favor of this.
Even with a "living will," it seems it would be awful hard for the surviving members of a family to grant someone's request for no artificial life support. Writing it down is one thing. Doing it is another.
