Well, here it is..

… proof that Michael Schiavo was right and Terri’s parent, however well meaning, were wrong. Terri Schiavo’s autopsy results were released today and showed irreversiable brain damage and blindness. According to the report, her brain was half the size of a normal one and no therapy would have been able to help her.

The videos of her responding to her parents were said to be automatic reactions, not intentional ones. But the initial cause of her collapse some 13 years ago could not be determined, although it was said NOT to be the eating disorder everyone suspected it to be.

I am sure this is a blow to her parents, but perhaps they can rest easier knowing they did all they could, but there really was no more to be done.

    The parents were used and abused by the radical right-to-lifers for their own publicity machine and the father especially would seem to have been a more than willing dupe in the process, but I still feel sympathy for all the family involved in this sad situation.

    I hope this gives them all closure so they can get on with their own lives now.
