Source: Doctors Remove Terri Schiavo's Feeding Tube

Doctors removed Terri Schiavo's feeding tube Friday despite an extraordinary, last-minute push by Republicans on Capitol Hill to use the subpoena powers of Congress to keep the severely brain-damaged woman alive, a source close to the case told The Associated Press.
It is expected that it will take one to two weeks for Schiavo to die, provided no one intercedes and gets the tube reinserted. The source had been briefed on the situation but spoke on condition of anonymity.

The removal came amid a flurry of maneuvering by Schiavo's parents, state lawmakers and Congress to keep her alive. Committees in the Republican-controlled Congress issued subpoenas for Schiavo, her husband, and her caregivers demanding that they appear at hearings on March 25 and March 28.

But the judge presiding over the case later refused a request from House attorneys to delay the removal, which he had previously ordered to take place at 1 p.m. EST.

"I have had no cogent reason why the (congressional) committee should intervene," Greer told attorneys in a conference call, adding that last-minute action by Congress does not invalidate years of court rulings.

Quote about Terri Schiavo from Sen. Frist who is a medical doctor -

Frist said on the Senate floor. "In fact -- this is what I'm told -- that she
hasn't had an MRI or PET scan which suggests she has not had a full
neurological exam."

Come on folks ... she hasn't even had her brain checked yet to see
if there is perm. damage. She responds to people. She responds to her
mother. She even responded to the priest each time he was there
(until the 'husband' denied her the right to have a priest in the room).
