To: Stop Eugenics! <contact@stopeugenics.org>

Attention: All Recipients
Most people tend to think  that landing in an ICU is what happens to "other people". The problem is, it usually happens "to you"!–I really don’t think anybody who landed in an ICU the first time, thought it would happen to themselves.
Aside from the millions of supporters she had, there were alot of people who were "rah,rah,rah!–Terri Schiavo is gone!" Alot of calloused people laughed it all off, and there were places where Terri Schiavo’s torture and execution became a joke. Balance of nature as it occurs,  undoubtedly some Terri Schiavo comedians have had their taste of the so-called "dying with dignity".
One thing I witnessed last year in two ICU’s, is that since Terri Schiavo’s execution, it was not the doctors I had to worry about. Their mistakes were unintentional. The nurses were more interested in facilitating my death, than contacting a doctor when I needed one. The only way I got out of either ICU, was because I was able to communicate.
Right now in ICUs, there is a climate where finishing people off is easy to do, and it will escape any notice during reporting.
Last year, for whatever reason, an anaesthesist could not intubate me for surgery, to have a stone removed from my bladder. They put in a trachea, which created complications for several weeks, before I was able to have lazer surgery.
The main point is, this symposium on euthanasia is really important. The serial-killers are everywhere, and they are on a roll. I think it is important to change the thought processes in the U.S. and Canada. If we can restore the value of "living", "dying of old-age", and treasuring every day of our lives again, instead of  allowing medical thugs and governments to put time-limits on people’s lives, the value of living will spread in healthy epidemic proportions.
Please spread this email around about the symposium so as many people as possible can attend.

Second-International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide – Never Again

In the past several months we have witnessed the passing and now implementation of the Washington State I-1000 assisted suicide Initiative making assisted suicide legal in that state. We were shocked when Judge Dorothy McCarter legalized assisted suicide in the state of Montana by judicial fiat. Luxembourg just passed a bill to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide that will be implemented this summer.

We experienced a temporary victory in Hawaii when the state legislature decided to temporarily put-aside an assisted suicide bill. There are currently bills  to legalize assisted suicide in New Hampshire, New Mexico, Massachussets and now Pennsylvania. Canada will soon be facing another bill to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide and in the UK Lord Joffe may also introduce a bill to legalize assisted suicide and there are pressures to legalize assisted suicide in Scotland.

You need to attend the Second-International Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide.
