Axia College Material Appendix D The Terri Schiavo Controversy This is an information presentation about the different opinions Terri Schiavo’s parents and husband had about ending or preserving her life. Background In 1990, Terri Schiavo became severely mentally disabled after her heart stopped momentarily, cutting off the oxygen supply to her brain. According to doctors, Terri was in a “vegetative” (“Terri Schiavo's Life,” 2003) condition; however, she was able to breathe without medical help and respond to stimuli. Terri Schiavo had no living will, which created a great deal of debate regarding her end-of-life decision. The center of debate was withdrawal of life-sustaining medical equipment. Terri Schiavo needed a feeding tube to sustain her life, which her husband and legal guardian, Michael Schiavo, sought to remove. Terri Schiavo’s parents, however, felt that her life should be sustained using the feeding tube. A legal controversy ensued over which guardian should determine medical care when there is no living will.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
