Slate's Hey Wait a Minute: Schiavo's Disability Rights

NPR's Alex Chadwick speaks with disability rights attorney and Slate contributor Harriet McBryde Johnson about case of Terri Schiavo, who has lingered for 15 years in a persistent vegetative state. Johnson is disabled herself, and argues that the removal of the feeding tube without Terri Schiavo's express consent is a form of discrimination against the disabled.
