  • FORBES DEPLORES PRIME TIME MURDER
    who are terminally ill and those who are in excruciating pain But we must not give up on people who are suffering and we must not let them give up on themselves We have the science and the technology to help people relieve pain The question is Do we have the love and compassion to stand by people who feel that they re all alone All of us during our lives face dark moments when we feel we re facing the abyss My own mother died six years ago from lung cancer Near the end the doctors asked her if she wanted a living will She thought they meant that they wanted to pull the plug and she was outraged She said No way I m fighting this to the end Our family was inspired by her tenacity Just as we drew strength from her courage in adversity she drew strength because we rallied around her in adversity with love But make no mistake Euthanasia is not progress It turns doctors from healers into killers It encourages the elderly to believe that they are obstacles not human beings It is the path to barbarism and we must fight it every

  • U.S. Supreme Court Decides to Review Oregon's Assisted-Suicide Law
    government David Stevens M D executive director of the 17 000 member Christian Medical Association said The Court has an opportunity to ensure that patients receive truly compassionate care and pain relief by limiting physicians use of narcotics for healing not death Dr Stevens noted As the time tested Hippocratic oath asserts the role of a physician is to use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment but never to injure or wrong them The oath also asserts I will not give poison to anyone though asked to do so nor will I suggest such a plan The reason physicians have taken this oath for centuries is to preserve their patients rights and the healing authority of the medical profession We don t need to empower physicians to administer lethal doses of narcotics We need to empower physicians to administer truly pain relieving doses of narcotics What message do we want to send about suicide to our young people the disabled community our aging parents and grandparents Do we really want the government condoning and promoting suicide Do we want to reinforce the fear that the infirm are no more than a burden on the healthy
