Senate Passes Legislation on Schiavo Case
The plan had been for the House to act first and then the Senate to pass the House version. But with Democrats forcing a delay in the House, the Senate went ahead and passed its own, identical, version by unrecorded voice vote.

Nice of the Democrats to stall this bill in the House. They don't have the votes to stop it when the Senate version comes through so they are just delaying the inevitable. Unfortunately this delay means that precious hours go by with Terri Schiavo not getting food or water. Real compassionate...
