I've read the report.
the global cortical degeneration is clearly stated as being quite old, as is the degeneration of the occipital lobes.
It seems you did not read the report with any care for details.
You also apparently know little about science or medical forensics. Whereas experimental data must be gathered at least three times for a legitimate sample, and the experimental process must be repeated independently at least once to provide any degree of corroboration, this does not mean that more than one mediocal examiner must examine a corpse to determine cause of death - anymore than more than one observer is required to discover that a baseball has shattered a window: A fact is a fact, irrespective of how many observers are involved in its discovery.
Moreover, IF you had read the report, you would be aware that far more than three samples were taken of Mrs. Shiavo's brain... dozens in fact were taken. All samples, when compared to benchmark data from a number of other such corpses in the neuromedical database, confirm the analysis: Global cortical degeneration as a result of hypoxia.
The requirements of Law, Medical Forensics, and Science are well satisfied.
Yet, so it seems, you are not.
This leads me to ponder the likelihood that your appeals to science are a cloak for another, utterly implacable, source of discontent.
So, in all respect, what is your beef, really?
No law is legit that warrants cold-blooded murder. And this was murder.
It's too bad they wouldn't allow Terri's parents to send in an observer. That would have helped.
As it is, no minds were changed. I am sorry to see all the kill-Terri-first crowd jumping on this thread like magots in a rotting body.
Why don't you all go dance on Terri's grave and spit on the Schindler's some more. Like they haven't suffered enough already.
