unshocking news.

The official Terri Schiavo autopsy (imho, any medical exam in the last ten years has to count as an unofficial autopsy) shows that her husband, the person custom dictated as her next of kin and guardian, was right. The man who led the autopsy team had this to say of the extremely shrunken brain of Terri Schiavo:

"This damage was irreversible, and no amount of therapy or treatment would have regenerated the massive loss of neurons," said Pinellas-Pasco County Medical Examiner Dr. Jon Thogmartin


"For years and years, the courts have found there was no abuse of Terri, no evidence of abuse and that is what the medical examiner found," Michael Schiavo's attorney George Felos said Wednesday.

another telling remark about the issue:

Medical examiners said they were surprised by the extent of Schiavo's dehydration and the high amount of sodium found in her skin and organs. Her brain was smaller than that of Karen Ann Quinlan, who died in 1985 after spending 10 years in a vegetative state that first drew national attention to the right-to-life debate.

and last:

At least 19 judges considered the case over the years, and all sided with Michael Schiavo. The family battle drew national attention after Michael Schiavo got a court order to remove the feeding tube.

With any luck the "Michael Schiavo's an abusive husband" camp will all shrivel up and die.
