Abstract
In the fifteen-year-long public saga of the Terri Schiavo case, one oftcited regrettable aspect of her health care noted in the media was her lack of advance care planning. The withdrawal of her gastrostomy tube was per the consent of her husband, Michael Schiavo, based on the substituted judgment of what she would have desired in a persistent vegetative state. Her parents, the Schindlers, attempted to assert that ending treatment in her state,with corroboration by other witnesses for this refusal, and without any compelling contradictory evidence from the once-competent patient.
