Terri Schiavo’s Husband

Seeks Publisher

For His Book

One side of the controversial case of Terri Schiavo, whose parents fought her husband Michael against removal of life support, may soon be produced as a book. Literary agent, David Vigliano, reportedly is sending proposals for the book by Terri’s husband to publishers. Vigliano has been quoted as saying, “I think this is the seminal case in the right to die with dignity story.”

Terri Schiavo died of dehydration several months ago, as ordered by the courts, after her parents had unsuccessfully exhausted all legal appeals to keep her alive.

Michael Schiavo, buried Terri’s cremated remains on June 20 in Clearwater, Fla., where he lives. However, Terri’s parents were not notified about the service, and therefore were not there. READ MORE ON THIS STORY by Nat Hentoff, Newspaper Enterprise Association.
