Lauren Richardson update...


UPDATE June 27, 2008: 

Thanks to all of you for prayers.  Lauren’s case is still ongoing and no decision has been made yet by the trial judge.  Lauren herself has had some minor ups and downs but is doing pretty well.  We are visiting her, interacting with her, and enjoying her life every day.  Some of the items on schedule in the court case in May and June occurred while others did not.  We do not know what the upcoming schedule will be exactly, but at least some court-related activities will occur in July. 
All of this means that Lauren’s case is still hanging in the balance for a decision about whether she will be allowed to receive care and assistance from her loving family or whether she will starve and dehydrate simply because she has a disability.  Please continue to pray for Lauren and everyone involved in this case.

Life for Lauren

Many now have written to Governor Minner to urge her to step in if necessary. A sampling of these letters is on the Life for Lauren website linked below. This is the first. Many follow.


Dear Governor Minner, 

I am following very closely the matter of Lauren Richardson.

I have previously called and spoken to one of your staffers who
told me there was nothing you could do, since it is in the courts. 
I disagreed then and I still disagree today. 
The executive branch has equal authority and power to
the legislative and judicial branches.

It is your solemn duty to protect innocent life.

Hearsay evidence should never be accepted as a standard
for ending a person's life.

Having a disability, as Lauren does, should not be a death sentence. 
People all over the nation are following this situation. Please use your
authority to stand for the disabled and protect them from those
who may have spurious reasons for stating what may or may not
be true.

Even if Lauren made an off handed remark about not wanting to
be disabled, that should never be the basis for ending her life.

Our nation has strayed far afield from God's enduring command,
"Thou shall not murder."

Please intervene on behalf of your disabled constituent who,
with proper care and therapy, will certainly improve in her
ability to thrive.
Her father, Randy, has the noble goal of caring for his
daughter, until she receives the therapy which can
change her current situation, dramatically.

I pray that you see the infinite value of Lauren and other disabled
citizens in Delaware who, need a champion to protect them from
individuals who may consider those with disabilities less worthy than
the able bodied.

For life, 
V.P. Colorado RTL

More prayers for Lauren, and prayers for all of the people in Lauren’s position, that we do NOT know about.
