“Shiavo’s parents left with few options; After the U.S. Supreme Court begins their day of legal defeats, Terri Schiavo’s parents hope for help from Gov. Jeb Bush and a federal judge”: The St. Petersburg Times contains this article today.

The Tampa Tribune reports today that “Legal Defeats Mount For Schiavo’s Parents.”

The Orlando Sentinel contains articles headlined “Schiavo parents’ options dwindle; Activists assail Bush for not stepping in” and “Case likely to cast shadow on U.S. politics for years.”

The Miami Herald reports that “Options are all but gone; Legal efforts to have Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube reconnected failed, and she was said to be ‘in her death process’ on her seventh day without food or water.”

The Los Angeles Times reports that “Supreme Court Rebuffs Appeal in Schiavo Case; Later, a Florida judge bars Gov. Jeb Bush from taking custody of the woman at the center of the right-to-die dispute; Activists urge defiance” and “Case Proves Politically Touchy; With polls showing a majority unhappy with Congress’ intervention, lawmakers on both sides of the Schiavo debate have largely backed off.”

USA Today contains articles headlined “Court rejection follows pattern; Past decisions have left such issues to states“; “Schiavo parents at legal end; Case returned to Tampa judge“; “Feud may be as much over money as principle; Bond of husband and in-laws soured after $1M settlement“; and “Anger runs higher as options run out.”

Finally, in The New York Sun, Luiza Ch. Savage has an article headlined “Bush: ‘Err on the Side of Life.’
