Congressional leaders say they've found a way to keep Terri Schiavo alive, at least a while longer. They've announced an agreement on legislation to would allow the brain-damaged woman to resume being fed while a federal court considers the right-to-die issue.

In the words of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, "All sides agree that this is the best way to proceed."

He says final approval is expected Sunday when the House will meet in a special session.

The feeding tube that had kept Schiavo alive for more than a decade was removed Friday at the direction of a Florida judge. Her husband, Michael Schiavo, says it's what she would have wanted, but Schiavo's parents disagree.

Saturday, Schiavo's mother pleaded for help from politicians, begging them, "Please, please, please save my little girl."
