Skip to comments.Michael Schiavo Shopping His Book
Posted on 06/18/2005 5:52:16 AM PDT by veronica
Less than three months after his instructions to starve his wife to death were carried out by court order, Michael Schiavo is seeking a book deal.
Schiavo is in Manhattan, reports the New York Post - "shopping his book proposal among publishers."
"The timing couldn't be better," the Post notes, with news of his wife's autopsy on the front page of every newspaper this week.
Schiavo's book agent, David Vigliano, told the paper: "I think this is a seminal right to die with dignity story."
Schiavo's story, however, may not be over just yet.
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Friday he may ask prosecutors to probe questions about Michael's conduct on the night of his wife's collapse 15 years ago, which left her mentally disabled. :
"I think this is a seminal right to die with dignity story."
Death by dehydration and/or starvation against one's will is not an illustration of dignity, sir.
"Schiavo's story, however, may not be over just yet"
Or a 'How To ______________' book. Fill in the blank.
Isn't Fuhrman's book also a "ka-ching" opportunity?
well, isn't this the way things are done today?
Something dreadful happens, everyone wants to rush to write books about it and make $$$'s. I am certainly not suprised.
It was not so much a right-to-die or right-to-life story as it was a story about who speaks for a person when she cannot speak for herself.
... at least the flowers in her room had water
Wishing there were a way to let publishers know beforehand, how unhappy some folks will be with the publisher of MS's book. I will not be content just to refrain from buying the book.
I for one, will not buy his book, watch his movie, or give him water if he asks.
I wonder if the word "Shame" can be found in the book ?
Or he may not.
One great big hunk of finger in the wind...smelling like baloney.
A serial is the only route for him because he will be haunted and hunted in many unique ways every day for the rest of his life.
Last I heard, Fuhrman didn't order his wife killed by dehydration and starvation. I will not buy a book by a guy who just got away with murder.
People are angry enough that some will actively interfere with book sales.
"It was not so much a right-to-die or right-to-life story as it was a story about who speaks for a person when she cannot speak for herself."
This has become my chant, and I think you and I are among the few who hear it.
Bush met with Fuhrman recently. That's probably when he heard that Fuhrman had some evidence of timeline discrepancies. Bush is just covering himself.
I suspect you have a different meaning for "speaking for someone who can't speak for herself" than I would. Last I heard, assisted suicide has been, and still is, illegal in Florida. Since Terri's condition wasn't terminal, even IF she did tell Michael she "wouldn't want to live that way," killing her as he did was every bit as criminal as anything the famed "Dr. Death" did, and he ended up in jail for it.
At least, in his case, the people definitely made such statements, often signed and notarized. In the Schiavo case, there was just the word of a husband who "suddenly remembered" it some years after the fact, and almost immediately after he collected his settlement for her "care." None of her family heard her say any such thing, and none of her actual friends did either--I say "actual" because a lot of people are touting her sister-in-law (Michael's sister) as her "best friend" when that was most certainly not the case.
I just hope he will do the right thing, even if it's for the wrong reasons.
I think this is a very sick thing to do.
Yes. It's just that I have heard it said that the Schindlers are the one's interested in cashing in. This would indicate that's not so...at least not exclusively.
Maybe not. He did make a lot of money off of the insurance, but unfortunately, if there is a market to sell to, he'll get rich again.
There are no morals in this. It is how to make a buck. If people are willing to spend the money, it will happen.
So comparing the "grieving" spouses "ka-ching" to that of an impartial investigator's is reasonable?
Here's hoping he slips in the shower and bumps his head get knocked out and his current wife can starve him to death for the money he just inherited ( even if she has to lash him to the bed and duct tape his mouth shut for a month or so to keep his screams of bliss and tranquility from waking the neighbors ).
The difference is with Furhman's book you have a chance to see the reality behind the hype and lies of Mikey.
The leftist MSM will be outraged.....naahh.
Certain people cannot or will not accept the truth.
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
I figured he was writing a nursing guide.
Well, this is one book I won't be buying! there is nothing dignified about dehydrating to death.
I hope the last chapter of the book is entitled: "Michael Schiavo goes to prison."
Agreed. There have been times when, though we were still married, there is no way that the first Mr. Sova should have been given the power to decide if I lived or died. And to me, this is the issue--If I decided that I didn't want a certain medical procedure, that's my business. If my husband, living with two kids and a whore has an opinion, it should be overridden. I don't care what he wanted done with her, his opinion should have carried weight totally less than zero.
"I just hope he will do the right thing, even if it's for the wrong reasons."
It's too late. It was too late when he pulled down the new girl's pants.
LOL--now that would be a good chapter to read! (As long as I don't have to give Schiavo or his family the money for the book.)
Not sure what you're talking about? I was referring to Bush taking (belated) action.
lol....sorrry. still stuck on your previous post.
Well, after all, this will be FICTION.
Gee, Michael's a little slow shopping his book. There are five books ahead of his which are factual. Who's going to ghostwrite his harry potter like tale anyway?
Terri's Final Hours. Click on my profile page. Father Frank Pavone's account of Terri's death after suffering at the hands of her state sponsored murder. The State of Florida, I'm ashamed to say via the medicaid plan. That's one medicaid plan that will kill ya.
Jeb is trying to vindicate Charlie Crist and Everett Rice. He's looking to clear Michael before the 2006 elections. Michael is a republican, just like Judge Greer and lots of judges and legislators who voted against Terri's life. The GOP is full of left wingers who think illegal euthanasia is "keen". Why? Because the death lobby flashes a lot of cash and that makes them irresistable.
"WHEREAS, MICHAEL SCHIAVO, a resident of Pinellas County, died March 30, 2005,....."
And we all know if Judge Greer says it no one can change it.
I agree totally - that's been the main issue for me as well.
Oh..I forgot..she didn't leave a living will and in that case the sanctity of marriage covers everything. It supersedes the civil right to life.
Bye bye Mrs. Peterson....your husband measured the quality of your life and found it unacceptable. He knew what was best for his family. How dare the government get involved in your private family matter.
I'm not sure Jeb had a chance in this one. With the help of Felos, the nutty death loving euthanasist attorney, the legislature slipped a provision into Florida law allow Terri to be put to death.
He signed it into law, and it was one of those small sections that no one realizes it's implications until Terri came about. He could not claim it was an inappropriate decision, Jeb signed the law. He could not go in with state troopers, he signed the law, and WOULD be impeached, with good reason.
I doubt Michael Schiavo will be invited to stay at the White House anytime soon, and I think Jeb would rather he be boiled in oil than hear that name again.
My 2 cents.
As I posted on another thread, I think MS turned down money from others to take over Terri's care because he knew there would be a book and a movie deal. Hollyweird will love this story because it gives them a chance to promote their pro-death agenda and bash Republicans and/or pro-lifers.
"Isn't Fuhrman's book also a "ka-ching" opportunity?"
Fuhrman doesn't commit murders, he solves 'em.
