Jeb Bush ignored a family’s private and sound medical decision. In 1990, Terri Schiavo fell into a persistent vegetative state, according to medical experts, after suffering cardiac arrest. Michael Schiavo, her husband, first sought permission in late 1998 to remove his wife's feeding tube because he said his wife would not have wanted her life artificially prolonged. Her parents disagreed and eventually Mr. Bush intervened on behalf of the parents. Mr. Bush pushed the Florida legislature to pass Terri's law, which gave him the authority to prevent the removal of the feeding tube. It was later found unconstitutional, and ultimately the courts allowed Terri's feeding tube to be removed; she died on March 31, 2005.
