Terri Schiavo's Wishes

"M. SCHIAVO: I won’t give it up. Terri is my life. I’m going to carry out her wishes to the very end. This is what she wanted. It’s not about the Schindlers, it’s not about me, not about Congress, it’s about Terri."


"KING: Do you understand how [her parents] feel?"

"M. SCHIAVO: Yes, I do. But this is not about them, it’s about Terri. And I’ve also said that in court. We didn’t know what Terri wanted, but this is what we want…"

"The evidence provided by a standard of clear and convincing evidence is that it is Mrs. Schiavo’s wish that she not be allowed to continue in a persistent vegetative state" – Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla.

The only clear thing here is that Michael Schiavo is talking out boths sides of his mouth.
