Priest responds to Schiavo's choice of words
New York City- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of
Priests for Life, issued the following statement regarding the choice of
words Michael Schiavo used to mark Terri Schindler-Schiavo's headstone.
and therefore convicts
himself of having killed Terri. Moreover, to say that she "Departed this Earth"
on February 25, 1990 illustrates the dualistic philosophy that Schiavo and his
attorney Mr. Felos have. That statement shows no regard for the fact that a
human person is just as much a body as a soul, and this hyperspiritual way of
thinking justifies all kinds of physical violence.
