  • Useless eaters: disability as genocidal marker in Nazi Germany

    Journal of Special Education ^ | Fall, 2002 | Mark P. Mostert
    The methods used for mass extermination in the Nazi death camps originated and were perfected in earlier use against people with physical, emotional, and intellectual disabilities. This article describes the historical context of attitudes toward people with disabilities in Germany and how this context produced mass murder of people with disabilities prior to and during the early years of-World War II. Several key marker variables, the manipulation of which allowed a highly sophisticated Western society to officially sanction the murder of people with disabilities, are examined. Important implications must continually be drawn from these sad events as we work with...

    At this point, we are all praying and hoping beyond hope that something will happen to save Terri. But it is time to think of what we can do to change things so that this never happens again that Terri's life and death might not be in vain. Of course, we'll keep our fingers crossed and maybe the judge and Mike will face some consequences, but that might not happen either. But a movie bringing out the facts on this case including the lack of role the local bishop and clergy had might be enough to change things. And it...

    Norm Olsen, pastor of a right to life church in Wolverine, Michigan and senior adivser to the Michigan Militia, said Tuesday that he had put together an unarmed coalition of state militias that were prepared to storm the Florida hospice where Terri Schiavo has been left to die, and take her to a safe house. Olsen said he only needed the OK from Schiavo's father, either directly or indirectly through his attorney David Gibbs, to put the plan, called 'Operation Resurrection,' into action on Easter Sunday.But Olsen said Gibbs called the FBI (to report the plans) instead of passing his...

    I never had any desire to run for political office, but, if I did, it would be to make a difference. If I didn't think I could make a difference, what would be the point? Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told us last week he just didn't have the power and authority to save one innocent woman forced by court order and armed guard to starve to death in his state. I don't believe that's true. Not for a minute do I believe it. Jeb Bush blinked. And that weakness that he showed for the whole world should represent the end...

Mightly has gone back and forth with this case (against removing the tube, then for it), but on this point, one has to wonder. Sean Hannity has discussed Terri's need for morphine, but where the hell is everyone else? If she truly is brain-dead, one has to wonder.

    Lazarus, come forth! When God wrote the Bible He wrote to us from His point of view. However, when we read things, we have a tendency to look at what we read through rose colored glasses. If we take off those glasses and look at things through God's eyes instead, we may see things we really don't like about ourselves. We are corpses, that's what God Himself call us in Eph 2:5, 5:14, and Col 2:13. These are some of the many verses that address our spiritual estate before salvation. God demands we look at the whole Bible in this...

The Premise: Our relationship with God has always been centered upon the concept of Freedom of Choice. We are free to choose from all manner of things both good and evil, but God also chooses. The Facts: Terri Schiavo, a severely brain-damaged young woman, teeters on the edge of death. She is being killed by withholding food and water, a judgement decreed upon her by the people of the United States. The highest courts of the land have approved her death,...

    Researchers at AntiCancer Inc have found a method of turning adult hair follicle stem cells into brain cells, a ScienCentral News report has said. Using mice for experiments, scientists managed to coax their adult stem cells into becoming neurons, the brain’s nerve cells. Stem cells differ from other cells since they have the capability to turn into specialized cells required by the body for maintenance and repair. Stem cells in hair follicles are located in a tiny protrusion on the side and are required for helping the follicle maintain itself. According to the researchers, the results of the experiment indicate...

    Judge Greer has accomplished a coup: He commandeered local cops to repel a state agency (Family and Children Services) and Jeb's state police. And what happens to him for usurping extra-judicial authority? nothing. He's allowed to continue the killing process, with a bizarre zeal to see Terri Schiavo die. Michael will be rid of her, and recipient, likely of book and TV movie deals, from a Hollywood that is pushing assisted suicide as the cause du jour. Greer thumbs nose at Congress; what happens? Nothing. The man shows signs of lunacy - - - is he fiddling with metal balls,...

    I am convinced God uses trials like the Terri Schiavo case to test men. Pinellas County Circuit Court Judge George Greer was tested – and found wanting. He had seven years to consider this case and got it wrong every time. I don't know Greer personally, but I know many people like him. They go to church on Sunday and then between Monday and Friday lead lives with no seeming connection to what they hear preached in the pulpit, what they read in the Bible, what they claim to believe of the Christian faith. This may be the biggest single...

We had called the POTUS, the Governor, the Florida Senators and DCF numerous times. The responses to those calls ranged from “we’re doing everything we can.”…to…interrupting our message with a rude, disinterested “thank you for calling”. There was no place we would rather be on Good Friday that supporting Terri’s fight and Terri’s family. We took Friday off of work, loaded up the truck Thursday night and drove from...
  • CAUSE OF DEATH (What will be written on Terri's Death Certificate?)

    CAUSE OF DEATH [Robert P. George ] As the end nears for Terri Schiavo, one question remains: What will officials record on her death certificate as the cause of death? The truth is that the cause of her death will be malnutrition and/or dehydration. But will officials tell the truth? Or will they sugar coat it with euphemisms, or even record as the cause of death something that did not cause her death, such as brain damage resulting from a loss of oxygen? Scholars studying the practice of euthanasia in the Netherlands noticed from the beginning a tendency of some...

    There has been ample discussion about whether and under what conditions an autop*y will be performed upon Terri. Putting aside the hopelessnness and resignation implicit in having reached this point in Terri's story, one important fact needs to be understood by those Freepers who are expecting that the procedure will provide damning details about Michael Schiavo. First, understand that Michael (ever the sociopath that he is) is expecting that vindication, not condemnation, will follow the results. And understand that he has reason to expect this. Here's why: at the level of gross anatomical observation, Terri's brain will show significant, massive...

We went around and met some of the people there. The police told us to move behind the barricade, which we did. It felt surreal to be there after all this time. I decided to talk to the police to find out what they were thinking, so half-joking and half-serious; I asked why don’t you guys go on a “sick out”. One of the police said they couldn’t. I...

    I’m not proud of this, but the parallels to Michael Schiavo are undeniable. When I was eight years old my little sister Joan was barely three. She could talk but no one could understand her. I remember teasing the crap out of her just to see her reaction as she went to dad to tell him how badly I was treating her. His reaction? “What’s the matter, honey? I can’t understand you.” She would then come back to me and complain about my treatment of her. And, what did I do? I teased her some more. It was really funny...

    In his landmark novel Brave New World, Aldous Huxley conveys the vision of a technological nightmare in which man is forced, through conditioning and eugenics, to happily serve as a cog in an utopian socialist machine. Those things which we see as important - family, close friendships, love, individualism, faith - are removed from the individual through brainwashing techniques, so as to create hollow vessels better suited to a life of consumerism and service to the State. Motherhood is abolished in favor of factory production of children, and the elderly and disabled are “taken care of.” The euthanasia practices in...

    PINELLAS PARK, FL -- Bob Schindler, the father of severely brain-damaged Terri Schiavo, said his daugher is "begging for help," and so is her family. Now in her 11th day without food or water after her feeding tube was removed under court order on March 18, Schiavo is "failing," he said, but nevertheless "fighting like hell to live." Although "emaciated," Schiavo is "still communicating," Schindler said, "... And she's responding to me." Schindler spoke to reporters shortly before 1 p.m. outside the Woodside Hospice, where Schiavo is being cared for. Several days ago, a family spokesman reported that Terri's mother,...

    Mar. 25 ( - The treatment of Terri Schiavo has emerged as a major watershed in the drive toward euthanasia in the US. If I were an enthusiastic proponent of "the right to die," I would not be comfortable with this test case. There are times when it really is not clear when respirator should be disconnected-- times when it is difficult to know whether or not a beloved relative should be allowed to die in peace. This is not one of those cases. Terri Schiavo was not close to death-- until her feeding tube was disconnected. She was not,...
