MSM Continues It's MisreportingTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
CNN gets it wrong - again!
"PINELLAS PARK, Florida (CNN) -- Terri Schiavo's husband has asked that an autopsy be performed on his wife after she dies so that a full report can be done on the extent of her brain damage, an attorney for Michael Schiavo said Monday."
What They Should Have Said(thanks to AN)
An autopsy is done to prove the cause of death; if Terri dies the cause will likely be listed as 'death from the effects of starvation and dehydration'. If cerebral exam is desired to determine the state of Terri's brain, it must be performed by a board certified forensic neuropathologist and is really not part of an autopsy per se. The office of the Pinnellas medical examiner (Dr. Thogmartin) has agreed to performed the autopsy but his office declines comment as to whether or not Dr. Thogmartin has the qualifications necessary to due a cerebral examination.
Michael Schiavo and George Felos have no intention of "a full and qualified report on the true extent of Terri's brain damage." If they really cared, why wouldn't they have required an MRI and a PET along with a complete neurological evaluation by an unbiased medical rehab assessment team BEFORE they starved and dehydrated her to death?
Action Requested: Help to get the real word on the autopsy reporting by the MSM - to all blogs and MSM: tv, radio, papers, etc.
