Schiavo Tube Removed, Local Reaction

by Chris Cato

The removal of a feeding tube from a brain damaged woman in Florida is causing several harsh reactions all over the world.

Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was removed Friday. Her husband says she didn't want to live like this but her family says she deserves to live.

A Lufkin woman who has a son with a similar condition, says she cannot believe that they are just going to sit back and watch her starve to death.

Karen want said, "I think it's barbaric. It would break my heart if I thought my son was laying in here and somebody came by and snatched his tube and I couldn't do nothing about it."

Karen says if this is the case, then Terri's husband, Michael Schiavo should have to sit there and watch Terri die.
