  2. And Kevorkian should have asked Cavoto:

    "And what if you see Allah?  You're going to be screwed, too".

    Why do they think that is some kind of 'trump card' question?  It only shows their stupidity and arrogant belief in fairy tales.

    Kevorkian needs more support.  He acts like no one agrees with him, yet we all know that there is massive support of what he does by the 'real' people out here that do have compassion for others.  ...Unlike the Pope and his heathen medieval tribe of criminals.

  3. Better that he is not a lawyer, he can be truth in his way.

  7. I love how the business anchor on a news network gets to inexplicably become a theologin... No wait, I don't love that.

  8. Some important links:

    Oregon's "Death With Dignity Act". Note the protections in the law.
    http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/pas/index.shtml

    The "Compassion & Coices" organization working to legalize doctor assisted suicide.
    http://www.compassionandchoices.org/

    The article in the <span><span>Journal of Legal Medicine October-December, 2009</span></span>:<span><span>

    "THE CAMPAIGN TO DENY TERMINALLY ILL PATIENTS INFORMATION AND CHOICES AT THE END OF LIFE" by Kathryn L. Tucker, J.D. ( Director of Legal Affairs for Compassion & Choices)
    http://www.compassionandchoices.org//documents/30_JLEGMED_495_12-28-09_1203.pdf
    </span></span>

    Tucker writes:<span><span>

    "Although many individual Catholics support end-of-life choice, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the leadership body of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States, has been steadfastly opposed. The Church has been the largest single contributor to campaigns opposing aid-in-dying legislation and ballot measures. [FN34]"

    And what's in [FN34]?
    "[FN34]<span><span> The Catholic Church contributed: $777,782 (53.74% of the opponents' budget) in Washington State in 2008; $1,288,894 (73.9%) in Maine in 2000; $2,173,330 (38.0%) in Michigan in 1998; $1,677,699 (73.6%) in the 1997 Oregon campaign; $968,806 (59.3%) in the 1994 Oregon campaign; $2,199,986 (60.6%) in California in 1992; and $745,951 (64.5%) in Washington in 1991.</span></span>"

    The Tucker article is important but I must say that I think it's possible to protect patients from doctors who don't want to tell them all the medical options, without forcing doctors to do what they think is immoral.  The article is scary and I now will make very sure that I have a doctor who will tell me about my medical options.

  9. I could not watch this because of Cavuto's voice.

  10. Why does Mel triple post when no one else does? Devine triplitude?

  11. David would also like to know. I thought that using multiple url links, instead of the linking feature, might get around the problem; obviously, that didn't work. Next time, it'll be one link ony per comment--which worked in a prior comment in this thread.

  12. Fucking awesome... Kevorkian gave Cavuto no where to go.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Would someone please give Cavuto a lozenge?

  14. Cavuto's voice is like hearing nails on a chalkboard.  
    About Cavuto's question about what if there's a god when you die, that's of course an awful reason to believe something because then wouldn't that be a good reason to be active in every religion in case you were worshiping the wrong god? What if were this god or that god, or this afterlife instead of that one.  Should we also believe in UFOs, ghosts, bigfoot, astrology, and the lock ness monster as well because there's a small chance it may be true, no matter how small?  Healthy skepticism keeps you sane really.

    But, journalist can really ask this kind of "stupid" question, "what if you see god?"...
    Every one will give the same answer, it's obvious : i will invite him to take a beer.

    Seriously, it's a ridiculous question.

  16. Seriously great man
    But why still the fear of being called atheist, an atheist can be agnostic
    And the reply "I don't know, at least I'm honest" is always a kick in the face of atheists.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Not really, since most atheists are partly agnostic as well.

    I´m all for sending Cavuto a one way Swissair ticket to Dignitas. 


    You know he´s desperate when he had to stoop to:
    "But it just seems like you were a nasty S.O.B" :(

    Dr. Kevorkian handled himself extremely well.

  20. The bit where he said some of his patients were Catholic made me think:

    If the doctor is an atheist, and the patient he is to euthanise believes in the afterlife, is it right to euthanise them? Because the atheist doctor knows that the patient would be dying under false pretenses.

    Like, if my patient said "Help me end my suffering. Heaven will be so much better than this life," I think I'd be wrong to pursue the euthanisation option, because the patient has factored the afterlife into their reasoning, and according to my atheism, their reasoning is thus incorrect.
