Michael Schiavo - Evil Personified?

Michael Schiavo was interviewed by Chris Bury on ABC's Nightline March 16, 2005. I thought Michael's response during this exchange was interesting (my emphasis):

BURY: Your wife's family and their supporters have been arguing in the most graphic terms that what you are going to allow happen on Friday, in their words, is in effect condemning your wife to a cruel death by starvation.

I'd like you to address that charge from them.

SCHIAVO: That's one of their soapboxes they've been on for a long time.

Terri will not be starved to death. Her nutrition and hydration will be taken away. This happens across this country every day.

Death through removing somebody's nutrition is very painless. That has been brought to the courts many of times. Doctors have come in and testified. It is a very painless procedure.

Really Michael???

You can read the entire interview here.

Former caregivers have come forward to testify about Terri's condition. You can read the affidavit given in September, 2003, by one of Terri Schiavo's former nurses, Carla Sauer Iyer, here.

Rumor has it that Michael, against the wishes of Terri's parents, will have her cremated. The family filed a petition on January 10, 2005, to remove Michael as guardian noting his cohabitation with another woman with whom he has two children, and his plans to have his beloved wife cremated after she dies (remember Michael says she is not being starved to death). The petition was obviously denied since Michael is still calling all the shots.

Thankfully, once he carries out the cremation there won't be much more he can do to the Schindler family.

I have a couple final questions for Mikey:

What are you going to do with your beloved wife's ashes?

How much are you going to charge for the book advance and movie rights?
