The presiding judge in the case of a brain-damaged woman in Florida rules that the feeding tube keeping Terri Schiavo can be removed. The decision comes despite efforts by congressional Republicans to delay the removal. Lawmakers invited Schiavo and her husband to appear at a hearing — a request they say can't be obstructed.
