In America Jack Kevorkian is being promoted on HBO and in the media, especially highlighted by CNN's Larry King Live. What we ask, is Jack being promoted for and why? Jack Kevorkian is a self appointed ambassador for death. Kevorkian, an unemployed pathologist, used his self-execution device to kill a woman with early Alzheimers disease and wrote the book "Prescription Medicide". After his first victim, he proceeded to assist 133 others.
Now we have Dr. Howard Martin, a retired UK physician whose joined the ranks. He believes, he's been treated harshly by medical and legal authorities, after he admitted to deliberately killing patients without their consent. Dr. Howard Martin admitted, "I twice helped people die, not because they wanted to die, but because they had such dreadful suffering." Suffering based on his observations perhaps, not the patients.
The General Medical Council (GMC) found Dr. Martin guilty of medical misconduct, saying that he had knowingly "hastened the deaths" of 18 patients by giving them excessive doses of morphine. The GMC called his conduct despicable and dangerous.
Dr. Martin said, he has "no regrets" for any of his actions, and said that there is a "point of public discussion" he would like to raise on legalizing assisted suicide. So is Jack Kevorkian in the United States. Make no mistake about it. The euthanasia movement is a world-wide movement no different from abortion. The two doctors are key players. Remember, all social engineering is preceded by verbal engineering. There is a whole lot of verbal engineering being picked up and promoted by the media on the issue of assisted suicide.
A sordid past has Dr. Martin, just as Dr. Kevorkian. In 2005, Martin was tried for the murder of three cancer patients, but acquitted. Some family members of Dr. Martin's patients, are asking the police to reopen the cases.
The BBC has revealed, that among the patients who Martin has helped to die, was his own son Paul in 1988. Dr. Martin's ex-wife Sheila said in an interview, that she would have never agreed to her ex-husband "finishing off" her son. Sheila stated, "Nobody wants to watch anybody suffering, but I would not have agreed to a huge dose of morphine to finish Paul off - I don't agree with that."
Nobody agrees with that. That's the point. Society should not solve it's problems by killing. The bigger problem here is, that these victims were killed without their legal consent. So, whether you agree or disagree with assisted suicide, is no longer the point. Once you legalize killing for any reason, there are no safeguards.
