yankees to torture woman to death


Mrs Schiavo's husband has fought to have the feeding tubes removed
A US federal judge has refused to order doctors to resume feeding
Terri
Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman whose fate has split her
family.

Her parents had failed to prove a "substantial likelihood of success"
if the
case went back to court, Judge James Whittemore ruled.

President George W Bush has intervened to allow courts to review the
case.

Mrs Schiavo, 41, who has been in a vegetative state since 1990, has
received
no food or water since Friday.

'Apply the law'

In his early-morning ruling in Tampa, Florida, Judge Whittemore wrote
that
Mrs Schiavo's "life and liberty interests" had been protected by
Florida
courts, the Associated Press news agency reports.

Despite "these difficult and time strained circumstances", he wrote,
"this
court is constrained to apply the law to the issues before it".

Lawyers representing Mrs Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler,
said
they were likely to appeal against the decision.

Timeline: Terri Schiavo case
Q&A: US feed-tube case
Mrs Schiavo's feeding tubes were removed at the request of her
husband.

He says she would not want to be kept alive artificially and has no
hope for
recovery.

Doctors say she could survive several weeks without any food or fluid.

Mrs Schiavo's parents have argued that she responds to them and could
improve with treatment.

Her brother, Bobby Schindler, said his family was crushed by Tuesday's
ruling.

"To have to see my parents go through this is absolutely barbaric," he
told
ABC's Good Morning America.

But Howard Simon, director of the American Civil Liberties Union of
Florida,
praised the ruling.

"What this judge did is protect the freedom of people to make their
own
end-of-life decisions without the intrusion of politicians," he said,
the AP
news agency reported.
