"Most of us have already said prayers for Terri Schiavo and the people who love her. All over America, people have chosen sides. According to a new poll, 54% of Americans said removing the feeding tube was an act of mercy, while 29 percent said it was murder. Talking Points hopes you base your facts on provable facts, not speculation and emotion. So what happens now? There will be an autopsy and the results will be heavily scrutinized. A lot of people have a lot to lose if Terri's brain is found functional in any way. Then Terri will be cremated because Michael Schiavo makes that call. His decision to deny her a Catholic funeral will again make him look bad. We hope Mr. Schiavo reconsiders and allows the funeral mass, then Terri can be cremated. As Talking Points has said, there aren't any winners here. Everybody has lost in one way or another. But the implications for America are very important."
Michael Schiavo reportedly asked Terri's siblings to leave the room when it was apparent she was about to die. Fox News correspondent Julie Banderas joined The Factor with more details about Terri Schiavo's final moments. "Bad blood is an understatement to describe these two families," Banderas said. "Up until the bitter end, they couldn't seem to agree on anything. Terri's brother and sister were in the room with her, but when it was obvious Terri was in her final minutes Michael Schiavo asked them to leave. When she passed, they were not allowed to be in the room. Then Michael Schiavo's attorney came out to say she died a peaceful death and died with dignity."
