Bush: Feds Exhaust Options for Schiavo

By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer

WACO, Texas - President Bush suggested Wednesday that he and Congress had done their best to help Terri Schiavo's parents prolong her life, and the White House said it has no further legal options.

"We felt like the actions taken with Congress was the best course of action," Bush said.

He spoke during a news conference with his counterparts from Canada and Mexico.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan later said, "There really are not other legal options available to us."

"We have explored all our options previously," McClellan said.
