Fr. Pavone Comments on Terri Schiavo Anniversary

Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on the murder of Terri Schiavo two years ago this day.

He became a familiar figure in the lengthy ordeal. A friend of Terri’s family, he was one of the few people on her visitors’ list and therefore able to access her room.

“Terri’s case remains shrouded in massive ignorance. This was not about end of life decisions or removal of medical treatment. Nobody is obliged to use every medical treatment to keep themselves alive. But Terri was neither dying nor on life support,” Fr. Pavone explained. “She was brain-injured, and therefore some thought she was disposable. The cause of her death – dehydration – was deliberately introduced. That’s called killing. While there is such a thing as a useless treatment, there is no such thing as a useless life.”

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