Schiavo Update

1. The trial judge hasn't yet ruled on the Schindler family's request (see Complaint) that their daughter's feeding tube be reinserted pendente lite, but court-watchers at the hearing believe he's sensitive to the time constraints under which the litigation is being conducted.

2.  Dahlia Lithwick has a perceptive piece on the federal law (S.686) in Slate.

3. The NY Times had two good articles whose interest transcends the particulars of the Schiavo case. One was in yesterday's Week in Review ("For Parents, The Unthinkability of Letting Go")and the other appeared today ("The Dying: New Openness in Deciding When and How to Die").  [tm]
