Schiavo case stirs up memories for Minnesota womanby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
The Terri Schiavo case has brought up many memories for Pattie Butcher. Butcher's son Jamie was 17 in 1977, when he got into a car accident which left him brain-dead. The Butchers kept their son alive for 17 years, until he was 34. They decided then to remove his feeding tube, and had to go to court to do it. Patti Butcher told MPR's Cathy Wurzer the Schiavo case is hard to observe, because she's still angry at the conservative activists who got involved in her son's case.
