Autopsy

I saw a headline today indicating that Michael Schiavo intends to request an autopsy to prove the extent of Terri's brain damage. Although the autopsy could provide useful information, it's rather disquieting to hear about plans to have one before she has even stopped breathing.

It's disconcerting because it is not about Terri. Rather, the autopsy announcement is the latest salvo fired in the war between Michael and Terri's parents. This is no longer about Terri. Michael is trying to obtain vindication and perhaps this is not surprising given how visciously he's been attacked with, among other things, suggestions that he's trying to cover up by having her cremated after her death.
