Terri Schiavo to be Autopsied
Michael Schiavo’s attorneys have issued a statement saying Terri Schiavo will be autopsied after her death in order to put to rest charges made by her parents that she was abused and not really brain damaged.
The husband of brain-damaged Florida woman Terri Schiavo has ordered an autopsy after she dies to silence allegations his plan to cremate her body is aimed at hiding something, his lawyer said on Monday. As supporters of Schiavo’s parents took their fight to prolong her life to Washington 10 days after her feeding was stopped, Michael Schiavo’s lawyer, George Felos, said her pulse had become “thready” and she had not passed urine for a while — a possible sign of approaching death.
He said Michael Schiavo, who has been pitted against the parents in a seven-year legal conflict over whether to allow Schiavo to die, requested an official autopsy to show the “massive” extent of the brain damage she suffered in 1990. “We didn’t think it was appropriate to talk about an autopsy prior to Mrs. Schiavo’s death,” Felos told reporters outside his law office in Dunedin, Florida. “But because claims have been made by, I guess, opponents of carrying out her wishes that there was some motive behind the cremation of Mrs. Schiavo we felt it was necessary to make that announcement today.”
Probably a necessary move on Schiavo’s part, not that he’ll ever hear the end of the idiotic charges from the Schindlers and their zealot supporters.
