You may remember the Terri Schiavo case as a bitter public feud over a severely disabled woman’s right to die…or right to live. As Terri’s husband, Michael Schiavo, sought to end her life, the case ignited a national firestorm that pulled in Congress, the American president, and even the Pope.
By March 18, 2005, Terri had lived alone in a dark, tiny hospice room for four years. That morning, she was sitting up in a chair, unhooked to machines of any kind. Her aunt and sister were visiting. As Terri listened to them talk, she smiled. She had no idea that the State of Florida was about to dehydrate her to death.
