Here it is, some may say let her die, others, including her parents and siblings, want her to live and know they can help her recover--which she will with her family's support. Her husband wants her to croak so he can remarry and have a wonderful life. I guess he forgot about his wedding vows.

Why doesn't he just divorce her and remarrry, and spare everyone -- including himself -- the legal expenses? Did he win the lottery, or is his concubine independently wealthy?

He has been living with someone for years, I believe they have children. He is counting on inheriting Terri's money once she is killed. If he divorces her he will loose the money. This is legalized murder.

Thanks, blueriver. I knew there had to be a money angle somewhere.

I wonder if the news magazines know about this case? Dateline and 20/20 love to do these kinds of stories and I think the publicity would be good for her cause.

John Stossel would be the perfect one to report this story. God save Terri Schiavo!

I have heard about this case. There was a similar case recently in California. I believe the mother won the right to keep her son alive, against the wife's wishes. I believe the decision came after he already died, but I don't recall the names right now. I wonder if they have sought the assistance of groups like the Thomas More Law Center to help them in court.

I believe Michael Schiavo's motives are all too transparent......commit judicially authorized euthanasia, preserve Terri's medical account to the extent he can and use it, as well as insurance procedes to begin his life with another to whom he will swear his "until death do us part" committment.

I hope his future wife doesn't suffer a tragic malady, for her sake.

His fiancée/girlfriend of the past 10 years must be equally as greedy as he is. I wonder why the people who are fighting against assisted suicide are not involved in this case.

That's what I thought too. If I were his future wife I'd be horrified at what he was doing and run.

I would consider this case judicially authorized homicide, IMHO.
