NPR's Mike Pesca reports on how the public feels about the treatment of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged woman at the center of a national debate over right-to-die issues. The polls he's examined indicate that nearly all sectors of the American public favor allowing the woman's husband, Michael Schiavo, to have his wife's feeding tube disconnected.
