Priest Who Spent Final Hours with Terri Schiavo to Observe Anniversary of Her Passing; Available for Comment

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, and a bedside witness to what he described as the murder of Terri Schiavo, will be available for comment about the second anniversary of Terri’s death. Terri died on March 31, 2005.

Fr. Pavone became a familiar figure in the court-ordered dehydration of Terri Schiavo as a friend of her family, and one of the few people who was on Terri’s visitors’ list and therefore able to access her room. He appeared frequently in the media on the family’s behalf during the ordeal. Following Terri’s passing, Fr. Pavone was blunt in his description of her final hours as “an agony unlike anything I have ever seen” and has since not backed down from his characterization of her death as murder.

Fr. Pavone preached at Terri’s funeral Mass and will preach at her second anniversary memorial Mass.

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
