Terri Schiavo martyrdom anniversary. Fr. Pavone, of Priests for Life, issues an open letter to Michael Schiavo:
...Some have demanded that I apologize to you for calling you a murderer. Not only will I not apologize, I will repeat it again....
Also, a telling detail via another PFL priest who was there:
...Our sister Terri was near death by dehydration, while a display of live flowers stood just inches away, immersed in water. Along with a few relatives and friends who were on the visitors’ list, we were joined by armed police officers, making sure none of us shared that water with Terri....
And visit the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation.
