The article cogitates on the biopolitical issues concerning the case of Terri Schiavo in the U.S. Terri Schiavo became a household name around the world. After her percutaneous endoscopic gastronomy tube was removed for the third time and throughout the duration of Schiavo's final thirteen days, media coverage reached an "all Terri, all the time" coverage. Some legal analysts contend that the judicial process both substantively and procedurally, achieved a decision that was consistent with the specific facts of Schiavo's case and Florida's established legal framework.
