Vatican Bioethicist Says Removing Schiavo's Tube 'Direct Euthanasia'

CNS reports: "Removing the feeding tube from Terri Schindler Schiavo, a brain-damaged Florida woman, or other patients in a similar condition amounts to 'direct euthanasia,' a 'cruel way of killing someone,' said the Vatican's top bioethicist.

Bishop Elio Sgreccia, president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, said the academy usually does not comment on specific cases before courts, but 'silence in this case could be interpreted as approval.'"
