Michael Schiavo Outraged

Terri's husband Michael Schiavo is outraged by the President and lawmakers for intervening in the right-to-die battle.
We know that he has fought with Terri's parents for years, since he wants her to be deprived of her nutrition and die, and her parents want her to live...of course, since she is not in a vegative state, as we can see for ourselves on the video footage.
Michael is quoted by ABC's "Good morning America" as saying: "This is a day for Terri. But I'll tell you what. It's also a sad day for everyone in this country, because the United States Government is going to come in and trample all over your personal, family matters"
Now Terri Schiavo is a Catholic, so obviously depriving her of food and dehydrating her, is not actually letting her die, but it's certainly killing her, murder of course.
Is starvation and thirsting how Michael would like to live out the last of his days I wonder???
Here, we complete strangers to Terri Schiavo and her family, are feeling compassion, and this man who was Terri's husband and shared more than the public with her seems to be 100% all go on her death.
Certainly whilst there is suspicion about Michael Schiavo being abusive to his wife, it should be investigated further before any kind of word that comes out of his mouth should be heard.
We don't know Terri, but we do know ourselves, if there were hope of recovery for us if we were in her shoes, would we try to get therapy, fight and perhaps beat this thing??
There are cases of where people have recoverd and lived to tell their experiences.
Those who are Christian, know that it's up to God when we die, not up to husbands who have moved on in a new family. I bring up Christianity here because we know that Terri Schiavo is a Roman Catholic.
What this woman needs I believe, is therapy not a death determined by Michael Schiavo.
Where there is life, there is hope
