House to Take Up Schiavo Case Sunday

The House of Representatives plans to hold an emergency session to consider legislation aimed at preserving the life of Terri Schiavo, a brain-damaged Florida woman.

Doctors Friday removed the feeding tube that has kept Schiavo, 41, alive. Saturday, House and Senate leaders agreed to a compromise bill to return the case to the courts and possibly restore Schiavo's feeding tube.
