Stabenow Sides With President on Shiavo Case

By  | 

Breaking with her Democratic counterpart Senator Carl Levin, Lansing Senator Debbie Stabenow says it was "appropriate" for the Congress President Bush to intervene in the Terri Shiavo case in Florida.

While Levin's office says he thought it was "unwise for Congress to intervene," Stabenow tells News Ten, "I think in this case it was appropriate, but I think that it is very, very important that this not become a broad trend."

Some senior citizens attending a forum sponsored by Stabenow disagree with her. One said, "The line between church and state has been crossed," and another sided with the husband of Ms. Shiavo saying, "When our time is up, we should be allowed to go."
