Michael Schiavo Speaks at Ethics ConferenceTopics: Euthanasia advocacy, Terri Schiavo's Life Matters
Pro-life advocates protested an "ethics" conference in Minnesota featuring Terri Schiavo's estranged husband and Dr. Ronald Cranford, a renown euthanasia advocate and outspoken supporter of ending Terri's life.
"Terri didn't die an awful death," Michael Schiavo told the conference attendees. As she died, "I laid a red rose in her hand and said goodbye."
"Terri's life ended after almost two weeks of suffering without receiving any food or water, without receiving ice chips to help ease some of the pain she was experiencing," he said. "Please believe me when I stand here and tell you that as a witness to my sister death suffering for 13 days by starving and dehydration that is absolutely sickening -- it is wrong and needs to be stopped."
In an interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Brian Gibson, executive director of the Pro-Life Action Ministries said that "Ron Cranford is trying to make heroes out of people who have done some really evil things. The whole conference needs to be opposed. It's a morbid and sadistic thing they're promoting".

Michael Schiavo is to an ethics conference as Osama Bin-Laden is to a non-violence seminar.
