Overview

Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Chapters: George V of the United Kingdom, Edward Brongersma, Terri Schiavo Case, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Piergiorgio Welby, Hugo Claus, Chantal Sébire, Nancy Crick, Elisabeth Rivers-Bulkeley, Ramón Sampedro, Sue Rodriguez, Nancy Cruzan, Daniel James, Debby.

On April 24, 2001 Terri's feeding tube was removed for the first time, only to be reinserted several days later. Over the next four years, the pro-life movement, disability rights groups, members of the Florida Legislature, the United States Congress, and the President of the United States became involved in the case. In March 2005 President Bush returned to Washington D.C. from a vacation to sign legislation designed to keep Terri alive, making the case a major national news story in its final month. In all, the Schiavo case involved 14 appeals and numerous motions, petitions, and hearings in the Florida courts; five suits in federal district court; Florida legislation struck down by the Supreme Court of Florida; a subpoena by a congressional committee to qualify Terri for witness protection; federal legislation (the Palm Sunday Compromise); and four denials of certiorari from the Supreme Cour...
