The culture of death wants to expand its tentacles 3


By Tom Quiner

Stephanie Packer is a wife and mother of four. She has three years to live.

Her terminal diseased is called scleroderma, a chronic connective tissue disease.

Her docs recommended a new medicine which could help her. Her insurance company said, yes, we can cover it. And then something happened that changed everything.

California passed their assisted suicide law. Suddenly, Stephanie’s insurance company wouldn’t cover her new chemotherapy. However, they told her they would pay for most of her ‘suicide pills’. Stephanie would only have to pony up a buck twenty to kill herself.

Before the law, the focus was on treating Stephanie. After the law, it was all about cutting losses and getting rid of her.

Assisted suicide produces victims at the same time it degrades our culture’s humanity.

Watch the video above from beginning to end. The culture of death wants to bring this law to your back door. It can be beat with education. You must educate yourself and others in the name of humanity.

My church here in Des Moines is hosting a panel discussion on this critical subject this Sunday. Check the poster below for details. I hope you can make it.

  1. I was already wary of the hospice thing. After watching people I love dearly be told they couldnt have an antibiotic for a UTI (causing nausea, fever and urinary discomfort) or told they would no longer remove excessive fluid from the abdomen( Preventing breathing and causing pain)b/c they only provide “comfort care”, I came to realize that hospice has a very narrow definition of “comfort”. I now tell people to avoid it. One can get all the pain meds wanted and refuse other treatments as much as they like in more typical care. Being in hospice does not provide any greater comfort and reduces comfort for those w/ certain illnesses and secondary illnesses. Mind you one of these had excellent private insurance so I dont know what the deal was with removing the fluid. It would have elongated her life only in that she could have breathed better. Now in addition to starving people (referencing the case in Fla. several yrs ago), we also suffocate people to death in the name of humane care.

  2. I wonder if there is a “Go Fund Me” page for this woman. I fully feel a person should handle the end of their life as they see fit. I also feel the end should be merciful and as pain free as possible. What is happening to this woman is just industrial and governmental murder. She is young and there is a chance for her to live. I had no idea that legal assisted suicide would nullify ones option to fight for one’s life. I always thought it was about choice for people who have no known medical possible for cure or improvement of terminal illnesses.

    • I’ll probably blog on this more next week after our panel discussion on Sunday. There are so many ways these types of laws can be abused, it’s scary. I think only 5 or 6 states have legalized it so far, but there is a big national push to spread it nationwide. Don’t fall for it. It is dangerous.
