"we didn't know what Terri wanted" -- Michael Schiavo

On the Larry King Show, March 18, 2005, this came out:
 KING: Have you had any contact with the family today? This is a sad day all the way around, Michael. We know of your dispute. M.SCHIAVO: I’ve had no contact with them. KING: No contact at all? M.SCHIAVO: No. KING: Do you understand how they 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…..
Add that admission to what he told his ex-girlfriend Cindy Shook:
 "How the hell should I know we never spoke about this, my God I was only 25 years old. How the hell should I know? We were young. We never spoke of this."
and you just can't still believe that this is a right-to-die issue. Add to that the fact that Michael Schiavo forbade treatment for her wife in 1993 right after winning a malpractice lawsuit awarding Terri $1 million, and only remembered Terri's alleged death wish in 2000 -- 10 years after her collapse in 1990. Read the Empire Journal's piece on this outrageous slip, plus other injustices done to Terri. Read the Hyscience piece on Cindy Shook deposition for which she had to be served a subpoena as she was gravely afraid of what Michael might do to her if she spoke out.

It is very evident that after Terri spent two years in her “broken” state of consciousness that here husband was ready to “dispose” of her. He had grown tired of his vows of “for better or worse” and was plotting to engage the “till death do us part” clause of the contract.

That's to say the least. There's also the angle that he may have cause her collapse in a fight in the first place, and he now stands to inherit from the $1 million malpractice settlement of 1998. Actually there may be more than that amount there.
