[Media Source*] (Hat Tip: The Empire Journal)
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: Ive had no contact with them.
KING: No contact at all?
KING: Do you understand how they feel?
M.SCHIAVO: Yes, I do. But this is not about them, its about Terri. And Ive also said that in court. We didnt know what Terri wanted but this is what we want...
But wait...it gets worse.
Originally from CNN
KING: And Everyone keeps saying, Michael, I'll ask George in a minute, even if she said to you, I don't want to live like this, which is the reason you've been doing this, so what? If she's not in pain and the parents want her to be alive and you're no longer involved, so what? Why not keep her alive?
M. SCHIAVO: Because this is what Terri wanted. This is her wish...
FELOS: Each and every one of us in this country has a constitutional right to refuse medical treatment they don't want. Terri exercised that right. She made her statements clear. A court has found evidence to be convincing.
KING: Hold it Michael -- on hearsay, George, thought, the only word that she said that is Michael's, right, George?
FELOS: No. That's not correct. Because she made those statements to her best friend, Joan and also to her brother-in-law. There were three witnesses and numerous statements to those witnesses over different periods of time. I don't want to be kept alive artificially. No tubes for me. I want to go when my time comes. If I ever had to be dependent upon anyone, I wouldn't want to live that way.
I mean, Terri made her wishes clear. And that's what the court found.
M. SCHIAVO: And this is the problem...
This is a problem indeed. It seems we are going on "hear say" and Michael is pursuing a case based on words he never originally heard. This is not good to make such a confession on Larry King Live, especially since Terri's parents are fighting to keep their daughter alive. I encourage you to read the whole thing from CNN, more developments later...
