As hard as it may be to accept, Michael Shiavo was her husband and had every right to make the decisions for Terri.

Terri Schiavo won a malpractice lawsuit against the doctors and hospital that originally treated her. Her estranged husband (and when a man is living with another woman and having children with her, he is estranged from his wife regardless of her condition) was obligated under the settlement to use the money for her rehabilitation. He NEVER DID THIS, instead he spent the money on legal battles to kill her.

The strawman arguments that Michael Schaivo didn't really need to comply with his legal obligation to get medical treatment for his wife are not very different from the arguments we heard four years ago about how UN mandates against Saddam Hussein really didn't need to be enforced.

That's precisely why civil rights attorney Wendy Murphy deemed him to be a "fraud on the court" in 1993. She called the Greer court's integrity into question for even listening to him later.

Only years later, at the autopsy, did some people learn people that the basis for the 1992 malpractice suits -- the doctors' supposed failure to diagnose bulimia -- was fraudulent too. The medical examiner ruled out bulimia as the cause of Terri's so-called collapse. You have to read the autopsy report because you won't hear it from the media. (This was not a mystery. Long before the autopsy, we ruled out bulimia here, too. It made no medical sense)

In other words, knowing that Terri had never suffered from bulimia, Michael sued innocent doctors for malpractice and collected a multi-million dollar settlement. I don't believe the MSM have ever reported this.

One other detail worth mentioning. Bulimia was Michael's only alibi. Now he has no alibi.
