Poll: Two-Thirds Back Spouse in Right to Die Cases

Michael Schiavo has won a series of court rulings to gain permission to remove his wife's feeding tube. These were blocked by "Terri's Law," passed by the state legislature and signed by Gov. Jeb Bush in late 2003; the state Supreme Court subsequently ruled that law unconstitutional. The latest court ruling allows the feeding tube to be removed Friday; however, both state and federal legislators have said they'll seek to intervene.
