Thompson Blurs Schiavo Script

Sep 13, 2007 7:44pm

ABC News’ Teddy Davis and Christine Byun Report: Former Sen. Fred Thompson, R-Tenn., said Thursday he doesn’t "remember the details" of the Terri Schiavo right-to-die case.

"I can’t pass judgment on it," said Thompson. "I know that good people were doing what they thought was best. That’s going back in history. I don’t remember the details of it."

But while candidate Thompson was sketchy on the details during an interview with Bay News 9′s "Political Connections" program in Florida, actor Thompson appeared in a "Law & Order" episode which dealt with a fictional storyline that was remarkably similar to the real-life Schiavo saga.

The episode involved an incapacitated woman, a feeding tube, and a politically charged case.
