Terri Schiavo to undergo autopsy

The husband had originally planned on cremating Terri straight after she died, but now an autopsy will be performed:
Schiavo to undergo autopsy to end debate says lawyer.

I find this case horrifying, but nothing illegal has occurred. Given that Terri's family wishes to continue caring for her, and her medical mis-adventure payout was large enough to continue supporting her medical costs, why did the husband ask for her feeding tubes to be pulled?

I actually find the case an abomination. What has been forgotten in this is that every day, multitudes of life support systems are turned off – for everyone's benefit. Why all the histrionics over this particular one?

Really as no more than an aside, what I can’t reconcile, is that the good Roman Catholics in this case, would prefer to keep this "person" in this state, for as long as possible, rather than allow her to go to their Kingdom of Heaven, or "Paradise".
