Casper, WY (LifeNews.com) -- Opponents of assisted suicide have always said that legalizing the grisly practice would lead to euthanasia, where patients would be killed without their request or consent. A Wyoming man who was formally brain dead and comatose is glad that his parents didn't listen to doctors, who suggested taking his life.
Kevin Monk suffered both several psychical and brain injuries when he was injured in an automobile accident eight years ago.
The 25-year-old went into a coma after the impact of the accident and had no brain function for 18 days afterwards.
Monk spent three months in the coma and, during that time, he told the Casper Star-Tribune that his physicians apparently tried to talk his parents into taking his life.
"Some of the doctors told Mom and Dad to just pull the plug," Monk said, upset to learn that now that he's recovering from his injuries. "Doctors are there to heal, not to give up."....................
As you now are quite literally in the "valley of the shadow of death," may our prayers be heard for your protection and comfort as we await decisions by mortals on your future.
We continue our prayers for that safety, for protection against those dark forces of evil who would see a similar fate as achieved with Terri and failed with Janet Rivera, Sam Golubchuk and others. May we all persevere as did Sophie Scholl and may we prevail.
I miss Tim’s posts, and his occasional PMs.
