Terri Schiavo Project

Theresa Marie Schiavo was in a persistent vegetative state for 15 years before her artificial hydration and nutrition were stopped and she died. A dispute between her husband and her parents produced what is the most important end-of-life case since those of Karen Quinlan in the 1970's and Nancy Cruzan in the 1980's. Suggestions for additional content are welcome.
