mar 31, 2005 - Terri Schiavo Dies

Description:

After suffering a cardiac arrest and severe brain damage, Terri Schavio was kept alive through a feeding tube. Her husband argued for her feeding tube to be removes, claiming his wife would not have wanted to live that way. However, her parents wanted to keep her alive. The case went through many courts, and even founded the start of Terri's Law, which allowed Jeff Bush, the Florida governor, to intervene and have the feeding tube be reinserted. On this date, after going to the federal courts, the tube was allowed to be removed, and Terri Schiavo dies. She was a symbol for doctor-assisted suicide, because she was allowed to receive life-ending treatment. This case also demonstrates how the families of patients are stakeholders, because they would be the ones losing a family member.
