Nat Hentoff Thinks So In His Follow-up Column

Notes Hentoff this past Tuesday:

In the most bitterly contested right-to-die or right-to-life case in many years, Terri Schiavo's husband and legal guardian, Michael, is back in court urging the removal of her feeding tube. But now, a federally funded investigation has begun by a disability advocacy agency. And a renowned forensic pathologist is asking questions about what actually put Terri in her current condition....

...The investigation — as Jeff Johnson reported on Oct. 29 (and confirmed by Patricia Anderson, the attorney for Terri's parents) — will probe allegations of neglect and abuse, including therapy judgments, during Michael Schiavo's guardianship of his wife...

On another related note: Terri's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, are scheduled to be interviewed on CNN's Larry King Live this Friday (Nov. 14) at 9:00 PM, Eastern time.
