Michael Schiavo At Euthanasia Conference

[Media Source*]

(LifeNews.com) As Terri's estranged husband, Michael Schiavo didn't make many public comments during the long legal battle he fought with Terri's family over whether or not to starve her to death. Now that Terri has died, Michael is significantly raising his public profile and will soon address a euthanasia conference in Minnesota.

Michael Schiavo will be addessing the pro-euthanasia conference at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minnesota which is being hosted by Ron Cranford. Cranford's theme of the event ("...Stories of Heroes and Courage") will probably enrage not only the many bloggers who attempted to keep Terri alive via their keyboards but probably also disability activists as well.

Cranford is infamous for his position in favor of assisted suicide and made headlines when he testified in court that Terri was in a persistent vegetative state, despite the view of doctors and neurologists who said otherwise.

Cranford is a member of the board of directors of the Euthanasia Society of America and has ties to the organization formerly known as the Hemlock Society, another pro-euthanasia group.

Apparently Cranford views Terri's case as a "landmark" for the rights of euthanasia activists everywhere. Although it was a bitter victory for those who favor assisted suicide, bringing up Terri's scenario as a trophy event is only going to cause more bitterness to be exchanged between the pro-life and pro-euthanasia groups, dividing America once again. Michael's attendance of this conference displays his "loving affection" towards his former wife, and will probably add fuel to the fire in an already bitter culture war that is raging across the North American continent.
