Republicans in the Florida legislature today discussed passing emergency legislation that might save Terri Schiavos life.
House Speaker Johnnie Byrd, R-Plant City, said negotiations were under way to see if some kind of a moratorium could be passed Monday to keep Schiavo alive.
Lawmakers were eyeing "moratorium on the removal of nutrition and hydration from those who do not have a written directive and where theres a contest among the family about how to deal with this," Byrd said.
Governor Jeb Bush has been sympathetic to the Schiavo case, doing everything within his legal power to help, but said today "the legal ways, the remedies, dont exist. Weve tried every possible legal remedy and have been shut down by the courts."
