Navy SEAL Found Not Guilty of Assaulting a Suspected Terroristyeah,

IMHO, this should never have happened. None of the three should have been charged. I am glad that all 3 have been found to be not guilty!

The sad thing is, when false accusations are made, even when found not guilty, many will continue to believe the charges regardless.

Oregon Letter to the Editor: Improve our suicide law

Christian Medical and Dental Associations writes this:

The slippery slope of physician-assisted suicide has begun. This letter is in an Oregon paper today, advocating expanding the DWDA to get rid of the elderly (duty to die).

Mailbag: Improve our suicide law

I am writing to you to propose an amendment to Oregon’s doctor assisted suicide law.

My first proposal is to expand the availability of doctor-assisted suicide to include elderly persons who feel they no longer contribute to society due to extreme old age and wish to die with dignity rather than face being warehoused for years in assisted-living establishments.

This amendment would establish a new and wider exercise of personal freedom, and as America places high value on personal liberty, this amendment should be widely supported.

This amendment would establish an age at which an elderly person would be able to avail him/herself of the option of legal assisted suicide. A statewide poll could be circulated to determine the most acceptable age at which a person would have the option of doctor-assisted suicide.

Legal forms and a series of private, personal interviews would have to be devised and enacted to ensure the suicide volunteer is of a sound mind and acting without undue influence from others.

The second proposal is to establish further curriculum at medical universities to educate more technicians in doctor-assisted suicide procedures, as suicide is no task for amateurs.

Oregon’s current doctor-assisted suicide law is of benefit to the terminally ill who wish to die with dignity. I understand that this proposal to extend the law to include the otherwise healthy, but advanced elderly, may seem extreme at this time, but without the introduction of radical new ideas future change is not possible.

I Stand in Solidarity With the Schindlers Against Sleazy Media Attack

This is the body of a letter from the Terri Schindler Foundation, which does not fit on my blog when I forward it. However, the email then links to Wesley Smith's column on First Things, hence, I have chosen to use that link in the title. The other related stories also came from the email.

“The hatred of this family is pathological and obsessive”

May 3, 2010

By Wesley J. Smith

Michael Schiavo has threatened to sue Terri Schiavo’s family because they named their non profit after her—the “Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation.”
(MS claims he owns the name.) And, true to form, an ever compliant media fronted his cause with an unfair attack on the family. From the story:

"Schiavo’s widower, Michael Schiavo, says the family should be ashamed of what they are doing. He adds if Terri ever knew this was happening she’d be horrified. Michael Schiavo is talking about the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation.

"While Terri Schiavo’s brother Bobby says the organization is set up to help families in similar situations, Michael Schiavo says he doesn’t believe it. Instead Schiavo says they are using their deceased sister’s name to make money."

Michael Threatens to Sue Her Family Over Foundation


DISGUSTINGLY SHAMELESS. I cannot say it strongly enough. He cheats on his wife after a questionable 'incident' that leaves her severely disabled, refuses her therapy after winning a lawsuit where he swears he wants to take her home and care for her, saying that is what he had promised in his wedding vows... cheats SEVERAL times, according to court records, and finally has two children out of wedlock with his 'fiancee' who he was living with, then starves/dehydrates Terri to death, marries his concubine, and now wants to torment the family more??
