Michael Schiavo Biography

Title:
Husband of Terri Schiavo
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Euthanasia or Physician-Assisted Suicide Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“This [removal of the feeding tube] is Terri’s wish. And I’m going to follow that wish, if it’s the last thing I can do for Terri. I love Terri deeply. And I’m going to follow it up for Terri.

…Removing somebody’s feeding tube is very painless. It is a very easy way to die… And it doesn’t bother me at all. I’ve seen it happen. I had to do it with my own parents.”

Interview, Larry King Live, Oct. 27, 2003
