Terri Schiavo's Autopsy Results Released

The pathologists who conducted Terri Schiavo's autopsy held a press conference and discussed the results of their examination today.  According to the N.Y. Times, they found "massive" brain damage -- a severely atrophied brain -- that was consistent with the clinical diagnosis of permanent vegetative state.  They also found no evidence that she had suffered abuse, which was a frequent allegation by her parents against her husband and guardian.  The parents issued their own statement today reiterating their belief that their daughter's brain damage was not that great and that she showed rehabilitative potential.  [tm]
