No Proof BEFORE We Kill, But AFTER?

Don't be fooled! An autopsy on Terri is not going to happen because Michael has ASKED for it. The TRUTH is that it is the LAW IN FLORIDA THAT ONE BE DONE!

406.11 Examinations, investigations, and autopsies.--

(1) In any of the following circumstances involving the death of a human being, the medical examiner of the district in which the death occurred or the body was found shall determine the cause of death and shall, for that purpose, make or have performed such examinations, investigations, and autopsies as he or she shall deem necessary or as shall be requested by the state attorney:

(a) When any person dies in the state:

1. Of criminal violence.

2. By accident.

3. By suicide.

4. Suddenly, when in apparent good health.

5. Unattended by a practicing physician or other recognized practitioner.

6. In any prison or penal institution.

7. In police custody.

8. In any suspicious or unusual circumstance.

9. By criminal abortion.

10. By poison.

11. By disease constituting a threat to public health.

12. By disease, injury, or toxic agent resulting from employment.

(b) When a dead body is brought into the state without proper medical certification.

(c) When a body is to be cremated, dissected, or buried at sea.



Don't buy the spin that this is Michael's idea and he welcomes this.

Hyscience has a GREAT post on this topic.

Michael Schiavo and the autopsy scam
Just a quick post to ask a couple of "off the cuff" questions.

Michael Schiavo and George Felos now say that they want an autopsy to "prove" the extent of Terri's brain injuries. Can anyone please tell me why a rational person wouldn't have found out for sure through PET and MRI scans before they starved and dehydrated her to death?

A post mortem PET scan is useless, and an MRI after she dies will be of minimal value. Are Michael Schiavo, George Felos, and George Greer also directing the details and the extent of the autopsy by the Pinellas County Medical Examiner like they have everything else so far?

Are we hearing that a full blown autopsy by a known and neutral forensic pathologist is going to do bone scans, and extensive evaluation for abuse? Is Governor "weak knees" Bush going to blink again before the powerful George Greer and the culture of death, by failing to step-in and investigate the murder of Terri Schiavo?

Just a couple of things that I'd like to know - but I bet you can think of a few yourselves.

  • It just never is going to matter to you .. is it. No matter what he does .. you're still going to label him a liar. An autopsy is not required by law .. in many cases. But I'm not going to argue this point with you.

    Earlier in the day Michael Schiavo requested an autopsy for his wife when she dies in order to prove that she was so severely brain damaged that she could never have recovered, as her parents insist.

    George Felos, Michael Schiavo's attorney, said the chief medical examiner for Pinellas County, Dr. John Thogmartin, had agreed to perform an autopsy before her remains are cremated.


    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7293186/

    Did you catch the "agreed to perform"? If it were required, the medical examiner would state that as a fact.

    The Schindler's are now exploiting their daughter ... one minute they are "resigned to the fact" and the next they have more politicians speaking for them. It's very sad that they are so desperate.

    Did you see the pictures of Terri's CT Scan from 2002? You can call Dr. Cranford "Dr. Death" all you want, but you can't argue with medical FACTS .. something you seem to continue to want to pretend don't exist ...

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7328639/

    I think at the time of the trial in 2002 there had been eight neurologists who examined her. And of those eight neurologists total, seven of them said beyond any doubt whatsoever Terri is in a vegetative state. Her CT scan shows severe atrophy or shrinkage of the brain. Her EEG is flat and there's absolutely no doubt that she's been in a permanent vegetative state ever since 1990.Why don't you post those pictures?

  • Sherri said it herself. She and any Terri supporters dont want to look at or see or hear anything that doen't agree with them. Thier "god" himself could come down and say this is the way it should be and they still would say Greer was behind it. Dont make any mistakes these people (Sherrri and others here) are not interested in any FACTS!! unless it supports them!!!

    By Anonymous Ylb, at 8:50 PM  

  • I find it interesting that you assume that Michael actually ASKED for the autopsy. The TRUTH is that the autopsy MUST be given due to Florida STATE LAW!

    Why would he want to prove that Terri was truly Brain dead AFTER SHE WAS DEAD? WHY NOT PROVE IT BEFORE WE KILL HER! The mental loops you are willing to jump through to justify starving a woam to death are not only amazing, but very telling. I am NOT the LEAST BIT ASHAMED TO SAY THAT I WOULD RATHER PROVE IT BEFORE WE KILL SOMEONE RATHER THAN AFTER!

    If you want to buy the spin- GOd Bless ya!

  • you wouldn't believe it if it came up and spoke to you .... YOU are the people who believe the "spins" and mistruths .... why is an autopsy required by state law?

    No criminal act.

    No unattended death.

    No alleged suicide.

    etc .. etc .... i THINK that Michael asked for it because it's being reported that way .. same way that it's being reported that Dr. Thogmartin, the Medical Examiner AGREED to perform the autopsy. it if was REQUIRED by law, he wouldn't have to AGREE to do it.

    and it's already been proven OVER and OVER and OVER that she has no brain .. what more do you want? WHAT?

    it's been said over and over that her movements are not reactions to anything ..

    what more does it take?

    oh yea, the mayo clinic guy that didn't even EXAMINE her ... that stood in her room for 90 min .. he didn't even do a comprehensive neurological exam. now if a doc looked at your kid and diagnosed without an exam .. what the HELL would you think?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:09 PM  

  • FYI, Sherri .... it's not REQUIRED ...

    In any of the following circumstances involving the death of a human being, the medical examiner of the district in which the death occurred or the body was found shall determine the cause of death and shall, for that purpose, make or have performed such examinations, investigations, and autopsies as he or she shall deem necessary or as shall be requested by the state attorney

    if the Medical Examiner didn't seem it necessary or the state attorney didn't request it ... it's not REQUIRED ...

    you don't even know what you're talking about

    Michael Schiavo didn't HAVE to have an autopsy. there is enough information about the cause of death for a doctor to sign a death certificate.

    seriously, before you post such nonsense, you really need to do some fact checking.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:26 PM  

  • Anon:

    MAybe you should go set Linda Vester straight as well. "Several of you Tuesday set me straight: Michael Schiavo (search) may have "agreed" to an autopsy on Terri when she dies, but it's not as if he had many options. In cases where a body is to be cremated, Florida law requires an autopsy. "

    I do know in Texas they are required after an execution or in any event when a person dies alone.

    NOT REQUIRED!!!!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:02 AM  

  • From how I understand what Sherri posted, it's required by law if Mr. Schiavo has her cremated. But if he really didn't want an autopsy, then he could just bury her. No autopsy required then.
    So much for the big gotcha...
    But, yeah, other anonymous, these folks seem to live in a very special reality. Four neurologists say "PVS-yes," and one with a national reputation as a quack says "PVS-no," and they think it's "he said, she said." They think over 20-something instances of judicial review and they say Judge Greer is out to kill Terri. Fifteen years of this and they say don't rush to decide. This whole circus has been funded by right-wingers, strategized by right-wingers, seized upon by right-wingers and some opportunist on the left shows up and they think it's bipartisan. Yeah, whatever.

    Anyone?

    By Anonymous Sarah D., at 1:41 AM  

  • Yup you got us Sherri an auyopsy has to be done BY LAW.
    An attorney for the Schindlers, David Gibbs III, said her family also wants an autopsy. "We would certainly support and encourage an autopsy to be done, with all the unanswered questions," Gibbs said
    then explaine this?
    why does everone involved say they support it if it has ti be done.
    Very good points by anon(s)
    and one of you is learning (she won't respond when she has no answers i have know her for years and thats the way she works)

    A man sneaks into the hospice and rapes Terri. Should he be convicted of a crime other than necrophelia?

    A man rapes Terri, and she becomes pregnant. Do we wait to starve her to death before the baby is born - or after?

    By Anonymous Sarah D., at 1:59 AM  

  • That's easy-we abort of course. But maybe we wait until it is being born and do a partial birth abortion.

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 2:00 AM  

  • Ah yes. The baby wouldn't matter much anyway. BUT - the feminists should raise a stink about the rape yes?

  • Sarah, your questions aren't as hard to answer as you seem to think they are. In your dumb scenarios, it wouldn't matter whether or not Terri experiences victimhood; if someone perpetrated any of those crimes on her, they would still be crimes.
    This is about the law, not about your personal beliefs. You folks seem to confuse the two a lot. For example, it doesn't matter what you think about the Schiavo's marriage. It's still a marriage. I've read a lot of comments from right-wingers who say that since Mr. Schiavo is living with someone else, his rights as her husband don't count. That's a quaint notion, but not a legal argument. You also think that since you seem to know what's right for this woman you've never met and whose circumstances several of you seem to be only vaguely familiar with, the law apparently shouldn't apply. Sadly for you, the -how many judges has it been now?- have respect for the law and have consistently applied it.
    You sheep are getting riled up over a procedure being done to one person which occurs every day. And the decision to discontinue life support has been made by several of your "heroes" on behalf of their own family members. But they can get you riled up at a snap of their fingers because you don't seem to think these things through before you go into your collective tizzies.
    And another thing. There are over 60 other people at that hospice who you folks (meaning those of you who, like Sherri, took your opinions to her hospice) are robbing of their opportunity to die a peaceful death just so you can have your public tantrums. Why can't you take your protests to a public park somewhere and stop tormenting those poor people?
    What you're doing is wrong and selfish on so many levels.
