“The Schiavo case has underscored the nation’s deep distaste for what many regard as overbearing government intrusion, various polls show.
Eighty-two percent of respondents to a CBS News poll last week said Congress and the president should stay out of such matters.
In a poll on the Schiavo question conducted by Fox News last year, just 1 in 50 said the decision to keep a patient alive should be made by the government.
While lawmakers say this case was an exception, they disagree on government’s role.”Apr. 1, 2005
