Minnesota Committee Approves Measure Helping Patients Like Terri Schiavo

Topics: Legislative Action Items

Minnesota legislators have approved a measure backed by pro-life groups that would make sure patients like Terri Schiavo are not denied food and water that could lead to their death. The bill they approved would allow patients to continue receiving it even if they cannot express their own wishes.
During the Tuesday hearing, a paraplegic woman wrote a letter to lawmakers about how she had considered committing suicide but was glad now that she was still alive.

Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life backed the measure, which the committee approved and is expected to pass through the state House as well. Its prospects in the Senate are less certain.
