Three U.S. judges in Atlanta hear the case of Terri Schiavo, the Florida woman in a persistent vegetative state whose feeding tube was disconnected Friday.

Schiavo's parents disagree with her husband, her legal guardian, over the decision; they have appealed to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, seeking an emergency injunction. Charles Edwards of Georgia Public Broadcasting reports.
