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.
