Michael Schiavo Vindicated

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
I usually don't post blogs about people's personal lives, but I wanted to add my two cents to the tragedy that befell Terri and the vindication of her husband, Michael, with the results of her autopsy being published.

When the story first broke, I spent some time reading the court transcripts. It became apparent that the Schindler family was creating the circus and were keeping Michael in court because of money that was promised to them when Terri first had her heart attack.

The transcripts showed that the Schindler's used all means available to discredit Michael; including accusations of abuse, adultery and negligence. The doctors the Schindler's hired never saw Terri and their star Noble Prize nominee (nominated by someone who could't even nominate people in the first place) looked at a few records and made his diagnosis.

It was Michael Schiavo who tried to maintain dignity for Terri; who at least tried to carry out her wishes (and finally succeeded) after a long and painful battle with people who at one time thought the sun shone on Michael.

I hope this brings about some closure for everyone involved. Now that the medical status of Terri is known, the Schindler's should understand why she never would have wanted this for herself, and why the Courts sided with her guardian and husband in allowing her to die with dignity and in her own way.

If that case was not a reminder to everyone who doesn't want to waste away in a hospital bed to write a Living Will, I don't know what was.

Unfortunately, you may be a bit optimistic about this being the "end" of the Shiavo case, I've seen a few things (that I can't recall at the moment) that have implied the family isn't done yet.

For God's sake, can the woman rest in peace, already?

If you choose to believe what the MSM media said about this story then fine... go to be with a conscience of ease. If you want to know the truth then you will not be so confident.
