TAMPA, Fla., March 16 (UPI) -- The husband of a brain-dead Tampa woman is lashing out at Gov. Jeb Bush and the Florida Legislature for again interfering in the case.
The Legislature is moving a bill that could prevent the removal of the feeding tube that is keeping Terri Schiavo alive and Bush is ready to sign it, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday.
The courts had given Michael Schiavo permission to remove the feeding tube Friday.
"What is going on with the legislation is the reason I am starting to speak out -- because it is outrageous," Michael Schiavo told ABC's "Nightline" Tuesday.
"Are they going to start pushing legislation for removing ventilators? Are they going to start forcing people to take chemo against their wishes?" he asked.
Schiavo said he would not benefit in any financial way from his wife's death. He said her death would result in no pain or discomfort.
Terri Schiavo, 40, has been in a permanent vegetative state since 1990 when she suffered cardiac arrest.
