2005: Terri Schiavo dies 13 days after her feeding tube had been removed for the final time at a Pinellas Park, Fla., hospice facility. The 41-year-old brain-damaged Florida woman had been the focus of legal battles since 1998 when her husband, Michael, had petitioned the Sixth Circuit Court of Florida to remove her feeding tube. Her parents opposed the measure, arguing that she was conscious. That court ruled that Terri Schiavo wouldn't wish to continue life-prolonging measures and her feeding tube was removed for the first time in April 2001, only to be reinserted several days later. Another judge eventually upheld the order to remove the feeding tube in February 2005, setting off more appeals and federal government intervention, including President George W. Bush signing legislation designed to keep her alive. All attempts at appeals through the federal court system upheld the original decision to remove the feeding tube, leading to the tube being removed on March 18, 2005. Six days later, the U.S. Supreme Court also denied an appeal from Terri Schiavo's parents.
