Posted on 03/31/2005 7:59:49 AM PST by MikeEdwards
Every time a rock is lifted in the Terri Schiavo tragedy, another conflict of interest comes slithering out.
The conflict-of-interest potential in the right-to-die connections among current figures involved in the case are only outdone by the Woodside Hospice board of directors conflict of interest reality.
Theres the death-is-beautiful, right-to-die activist Michael Schiavo attorney George Felos.
Dont make eye contact with Felos, who claims he can ascertain a persons desire to die by "looking into their eyes" and letting their spirits speak directly to him.
A jumped-up volunteer at Woodside Hospice, Felos became chairman of the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, which runs Woodside, and only came off the board about a year after Michael Schiavo placed his estranged wife there.
Then theres Dr. Ronald Cranford, handpicked by Michael Schiavo to examine Terri and on whose say-so Terri was categorized in "persistent vegetative state". Cranford is the MD who officially ordered Terris feeding tube removed on March 18. A neurologist, Cranford testifies in cases such as Terris around the country, always pumping the dehydration and starvation side. He was 1992s featured speaker for the pro-euthanasia Hemlock Society, which was renamed The Choice in Dying Society. (WorldNetDaily).
Cranford nicknamed himself, "Dr. Humane Death".
A bioethicist, and a pioneer in euthanasia and right-to-die issues, Dr. Humane Death is a fully-fledged member of The Choice in Dying Society.
At least Cranford is not a board member of the Hospice of the Florida Suncoast.
Mary Labyak, CEO of Woodside Hospice has direct ties to the Euthanasia Society of America and Hemlock for Hospice, described by Hyscience.com as "an organization that seeks to accelerate the dying process." . . . .

My wife has "The View" on and they just announced her death. The panelists, of course, are reciting Michael Schiavo's talking points. What bugged me the most was that some pukes in the audience ACTUALLY CLAPPED when the news was announced! That is just sick!
Soulless ghouls indeed!
Well...not funny...but you get my drift.
Oh, how I actually hate them.
I hold the MSM in this country responsible for much of our current state.
National Review online is reporting the LSM are keeping alive the myths about Terri being brain dead, on life support, and all those other lies. No wonder a majority of Americans think it was OK to let her die. The "media" are truly despicable. I have little doubt if they were to actually report news fairly that Dems would be crushed in every national election.
And Heaven forbid we give much credence to the possibility that the severely disabled have lives of value that are worth living. If the elites do that, then they might just have to admit aborting babies is wrong too!
I heard Dr. Cranford protrayed last night on Greta as a completely unbiased M.D. as he was brought in from outside with no ties to the case. This is very telling.
not MSM any longer, but OM (old media).
y'know, as in nita nupress.
sanjay gupta on cnn was talking about terris condition as if it was a given that she was unresponsive and had no brain function ("she only looked like she was responding to people") -- not til end of his 'comforting pap' did he say, "but i haven't seen her myself'.
LOTS of comforting pap going around, ya'll notice that?
meanwhile, eyewitness reports, affidavits from eyewitnesses and caregivers, videotapes, and early medical records were never given their day in court -- either judicial or in the court of public opinion.
cnn -- lol -- now buying into and promulgating the KNOWN LIE that the autopsy is at michael's insistence.
thanks for posting this -- all the crap sanctimonious talk about 'what is terri's legacy?' -- THIS will be a good part of the legacy. yeah, and how people even here on fr still buy into it.
cnn banner: "michael schiavo agreed to an autopsy, then will have her remains cremated"
news flash -- doesn't have anything to do with him. for anyone who cares to get beyond the hype and lies.
Thus, they are mainstream for far too many sheeple in this country...and even worse, around the WORLD.
Denial of water and food, even though capable of ingesting both orally, is considered humane by these sociopaths.
