Terry Schiavo's hospital gown appears on eBay

Feeding tube too. Nice

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Updated Here's one eBay auction we don't think will be around for too long: your chance to secure Terry Schiavo's hospital gown:

Oh yes, you get her feeding tube, too. As the seller puts it:

Own this one-of-a-kind piece of history. I purchased this from a person who worked at the Hospice Center in Pinellas Park, Florida. The winner of this auction will also receive the actual feeding tube that was Terry's lifeline before her final days. No matter how you feel about this case, you cannot deny that this is an important part of history.

We make no comment. Reg readers will doubtless act according to their own consciences. ®

Update

Terry Schiavo's hospital gown is no longer available on eBay. That took about 15 minutes.
