CNN reports that The autopsy of Terry Schiavo reveals that the woman had a brain that had shrunk to half the size that would have been expected of a healthy adult. Her brain would have lacked the capacity to control her digestive system and process any nutrition not directly injected through a feeding tube. She was blind, too; there was nothing left of her vision receptors because that portion of her brain had already died.

The horror is not that an innocent woman was killed. The horror is that she was kept alive in such a state to begin with.
