ST. PETERSBURG, June 3 / -- Today marks the end of Jack Kevorkians reign of terror over vulnerable and needy patients. For decades Jack Kevorkian spent his life advocating for assisted suicide, helping dozens of mostly non-terminal persons kill themselves.
It was clear that this man had a dysfunctional obsession and infatuation with death and that his true involvement in these deaths was never properly reported, stated Terri Schiavos Life and Hope Networks Executive Director, Bobby Schindler.
In an October 2010 MSNBC interview with Jack Kevorkian, he was asked to weigh in on Terri Schiavos two-week court ordered dehydration death. Dr. Kervorkian stated that Terri would have qualified for his assisted suicide service. Kevorkian further explained, [She] could qualify because the husband was next of kin, legally. And thats all that counts because you cant have interference by family members who might be antagonistic or hostile.
This statement only further exposes how the influences in society and the media used the torturous death of my sister, Terri Schiavo, to validate the Right to Die mentality and Kevorkians lust for the death of others, which drove his agenda, Schindler explained.
Contrary to this mentality, Terri Schiavos Life and Hope Network aggressively advocates for vulnerable persons, the disabled, and those who are dying.
History will surely judge Kervokian as a very dark figure. We are very encouraged that today we see a greater awareness that every life deserves dignity and protection, stated Suzanne Schindler Vitadamo, Terri Schiavos sister. While Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network denounces all of his work, we do recognize that every life is precious and therefore extend our prayers and condolences to the family of Jack Kevorkian, added Vitadamo.
We understand from reports that Dr. Kervokian passed in an environment that was neither antagonistic or hostile. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of his victim patients.
Thanks for the ping!
What a twisted thing to write, on a Terri Schiavo thread! I, as a Christian, believe you are alive forever more. Your body that you occupy now will not be so enduring, but I believe the God Who Created the universe in which you came to exist has told us that we are to be alive forever more once we come into existence. I personally believe we now exist sensing time as linear, but it is in reality a volume, and forever is the state of beyond linear limitations. Sadly, too many will be alive forever more in not so comfortable circumstances that they would make flippant remarks when they reach that where/when. It takes a special arrogance to ridicule those who are pro-life.
And we agree that a baby has rights, and we have rights as disabled, elderly, mentally challenged, able-bodied, whatever...
I don't mean to disrupt your thread.
Kervorkian should be remembered as the man who murdered others, but died of NATURAL CAUSES himself. Hypocrite!!
I am so tired of you humorless holy rollers. That was a joke. If you can’t take a joke maybe you’re in the wrong place. If you write me again about this I will hit the abuse button. I’ve never done that in my history of FR but I’ve about had it with humorless people. I stand by what I said: euthanized by God. In case you don’t know, it’s a parody of what Alexander Berkman said when Henry Clay Frick died (Berkman tried to assassinate Frick): assassinated by God. It’s a good joke and has nothing to do with Terry Schiavo and all to do with the evil Kevorkian.
I weary of deceitful, arrogant atheists, trying to sneak in a jab here and an insult there regarding the Christian concept of Pro-Life.
So, the new theme is their evil agenda lives on?

Every night before closing his eyes, while lying on a hospital bed in his living room, Francis Massco pleaded to his wife of almost 60 years: "Pray that God takes me home tonight."
Three years after a diagnosis of prostate cancer, followed by costly, invasive treatments, Massco, 82, decided in February against more chemotherapy.
"I wouldn't be mad if I fell over right now," he told the Tribune-Review last month.
The one-time corporate attorney resisted a little-known tenet of medicine: Hospitals and doctors make more money by aggressively treating terminal patients than by keeping them free of pain and letting them die with dignity. Some doctors derisively call the practice "flogging" as in, beating a dead horse.

Thread by me.
Rep. Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania is one of the fastest rising stars in the Democrat Party, taking on a recently announced leadership role at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Schwartz, a four-term suburban Philadelphia congresswoman, is taking on the position left vacant by Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who was just tapped to chair the Democratic National Committee.
One fact that has gone unmentioned in all the media reports trumpeting Schwartzs ascendancy is that Allyson Schwartz, besides having a perfect pro-abortion record in Congress, co-founded and acted as Executive Director of an abortion clinic in Philadelphia for 13 years (1975-1988).
The clinic was called the Elizabeth Blackwell Center which is ironic because Blackwell, the first female physician in the U.S., was pro-life.
The clinic was not without its troubles. The Philadelphia Daily News quoted a call from a Republican candidate that detailed an assortment of lawsuits against the clinic:
18 lawsuits have been filed against Miss Allyson Schwartzs clinic, including assault, battery, negligence, perforated bowels and uteruses, the woman said, and even abortions performed without consent of her patients."
In 2002, the Blackwell clinic declared bankruptcy due to diminished demand for abortion and stiff competition in the area. In its last year, the center still performed about 1,500 abortions. According to the Daily News, the center derived its largest share of revenue from abortions.
Since Schwartz left the abortion business, she hasnt forgotten her past. NARAL has consistently rated Schwartz a perfect 100 score. EMILYs List, the radically pro-abortion PAC, has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Schwartz, giving her campaign far more than any other organization. According to one site, EMILYs List donated almost $500,000 to Schwartz.
In return, Schwartz voted against the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act, and the Stupak Amendment. Schwartz even sponsored the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) which would have erased all federal, state, or local limitations on abortion up to an including the ninth month of pregnancy.
Schwartz was already heading up candidate recruitment and will now oversee candidate services throughout the country.
Note: I worked for two congressional campaigns against Schwartz. See Also Patricks reaction at the NCRegister.com Democrat Leader Operated Abortion Clinic

When a retired nurse from Virginia learned from her sister-in-law that a biotechnology company in Rockville, Md., was selling aborted baby parts online, she could hardly believe what she was hearing.
But, she said, I looked on the website and sure enough, they were selling baby parts.
Still incredulous, she decided to dial the phone number on the website.
I called them and gave them my name. I said I was interested in how I could get a fetal heart.
They said, What do you want to use it for? As a retired nurse, I was able to give a plausible answer. I said I was interested in fetal heart slides for research; I chose something from the different examples he gave.
He said, We can get those sections for you. The retired nurse then said she wanted to be sure the specimens would be viable.
The guy said they would be fresh; they dont slice up the heart and prepare the slides until someone orders them.
Capitalbiosciences.com is the website of Capital Biosciences, Inc., which offers a variety of biological products, including a list of 36 different aborted baby parts, ranging from appendix, brain, colon, and lung tissue to ovary, skin, spinal cord, testicle and tonsil tissue.

* She addresses 'unreal, sad and confusing' news of son's Down's Syndrome
* Writes Trig 'may provide more challenges and more joy' than imagined
* Writes that others would have wanted to abort, or send sympathy
* Shows thoughtful, human side of controversial politician
Sarah_Palin 'played God' in a deeply touching email she wrote two weeks before her fifth child, Trig, was born with Down's Syndrome, it was revealed today.
The poignant message to family_and_friends, included in 25,000 pages of her private emails made public on Friday, may alter the way the former Governor of Alaska is viewed by the American public.
In April 2008, two weeks before Trig was born with Down's Syndrome, Mrs Palin sent the email to her friends and family from her official government account.
In the touching message, Mrs Palin writes from the voice of God, as 'Trig's creator, your heavenly father'. She addresses the 'unreal, sad and confusing' news that her soon-to-be born child will have Down's Syndrome. The letter's existence had previously known, but only very brief excerpts had been made public.
Writing as God, Mrs Palin wrote, 'I let Trig's mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it...'
She wrote, 'Trig's mom and dad' were told early by doctors that the child 'may provide more challenges and more joy than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for.
'This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective... and get everyone focused on what really matters. The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven't experienced yet'. The letter also makes unlikely conspiracy theories that have long been circulating on blogs that Trig was actually born to Mrs Palin's unwed daughter Bristol....

“New Head of Democratic Campaign Cmte Ran Abortion Business
Rep. Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania is one of the fastest rising stars in the Democrat Party, taking on a recently announced leadership role at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.”
Let’s work as hard as we can to vote those horrible antilife Dems out of power. It seems like we’re sinking fast, but we CAN rise up again.
I think the best thing is to let EVERYONE know that the 'Rat campaign chairwoman actually ran an abortuary.
Thanks for the ping.
I found the thread/article that I posted from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review particularly disturbing because it associates cost of care with a duty to die. Once physician-assisted suicide becomes a treatment option, it will always be the cheaper treatment & will therefore become preferential. What blew me away was how many FReepers DON’T GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!
With few exceptions, retired people and even many people who still work are cheaper to kill than leave alive.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz took all the wrong lessons from the Holocaust. She uses it as a how-to guide for killing disabled people. She’s one of the most hateful specimens I’ve ever seen. I will always remember her for her hateful rants against disabled people who dare to keep breathing day after day. This week she’s pandering to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords for political gain, but she already came out against Giffords and others with similar injuries when she demanded they all die in whatever brutal fashion can be thought up.
