Strong Euthanasia Warning from Holland

By Bert P. Dorenbos, President Schreeuw om Leven (Cry for Life) Hilversum, Holland

Florida's Terri Case Opens the Door for Euthanasia in the USA

Florida's 6th Circuit Court Judge George Greer has ordered that Mrs. Terri Schindler-Schiavo's feeding tube be removed as of Wednesday October 15th at 2 P.M. That tube provides her with essential nutrition and hydration.

The request for this decision came from Mrs. Schiavo's husband Michael. Medical evidence and information given by Mrs. Schiavo's parents and other visitors prove that ending her life is a violation of Mrs. Schiavo's human rights.

The decision of the 6th Circuit Court of Florida is more important than the Supreme Court Decision to ban euthanasia in the United States of America. This Florida Court decision opens the (flood)gate of subjective decision making in cases of life and death.

At the moment that, in the Dutch debate on euthanasia, a court ruled that withholding food and fluid is a permissible medical treatment the road was paved for the Euthanasia Law that is in force in Holland now. It was in the case of Mrs. Ineke Stinissen, who had been in coma for several years that a Dutch court ruled in 1990 that food and fluid could be withheld from her. As is the case of Mrs. Schiavo, this was at the request of her husband. Mrs. Stinissen died shortly afterwards from starvation.

Since then the discussion about the termination of life has no longer been based on objective facts on the terminal illness in the life of a patient, but more and more on a subjective approach to the quality of that patient's life and the subjective view of professional and non professional persons about the right to life or death.

National Constitutions, the International Declaration on Human Rights, the recent United Nations Declarations are all based on the universal protection of the life of a person whatever his circumstances are and without any form of discrimination. In medical circles it is still accepted that, based on the historical Hippocratic Oath, a medical doctor will never apply his skill to kill a person.

It is not without reason that the United Nations Human Rights Commission has questioned the Dutch Government expressing its members' concern on the subjective regulations in the Dutch Euthanasia law which allows a doctor to kill a patient. These questions are still not answered. In Holland the debate has not stopped with the introduction of the euthanasia law but is is even increasing because doctors are still not willing to report their euthanasia cases. Patients are not sure if the doctor helps to kill or to cure. The Dutch Euthanasia Law is a very dangerous example to follow.

It is extremely important that those organizations who support the Supreme Court decision to ban Euthanasia take action against this Florida Court Decision. An appeal should be made.

UNBELIEVABLE - HIS BOOK PUBLISHER EVEN ANNOUNCES THAT HE WAS ON THE BOARD AT HER HOSPICE! I JUST FOUND THIS:

Felos graduated from Boston University School of Law, has practiced in Pinellas County since 1978, was a founding member of the National Legal Advisors Committee on Choice in Dying, and served as Board Chair of The Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, the largest non-profit Hospice in the world.

TERRI SCHIAVO TO DIE IN ATTORNEY'S "DEATH FACTORY"?
SUNCOAST HOSPICE BOSS WAS GEORGE FELOS...

For Michael Schiavo, George J. Felos, and the Board of Directors of

"The Hospice of the Florida Suncoast", it seems that Terri Schiavo's death cannot come soon enough - and unless the American public can persuade the courts to rule otherwise, Terri will die

Man "finds" Wife unconscious.

Man keeps Wife unconscious.

Man gets malpractice money for Wife.

Man wants Wife's money.

Man wants Wife dead so Man can have money.

Man gets Lawyer.

Lawyer is/was Hospice Board Member.

Lawyer promises Man that Wife will die at the Hospice...

It reads like fiction, but it parallels the story of Michael Schiavo (the Man), Terri Schiavo (his Wife), and George J. Felos (the Lawyer/Board Member/Past Board Member of "The Hospice") - and unless some brave soul intervenes, it will end with the murder of Terri Schiavo.

The Murder of Terri Schiavo - Oct 19, 2003

Imagine that you are physically incapacitated, unable to speak, to write a message or in any other way to communicate your thoughts, feelings or wishes. Imagine that you are incapable of feeding yourself, and must rely on tubes pumping nourishment and hydration into your body.

Picture what it would be like to be utterly dependent upon the kindness and mercy of others. Occasionally, the face of someone you loved - your mother, perhaps - comes into view. You attempt to smile, but you don't really know if it is registering with anyone.

By JAMES HARPER - St. Petersburg Times Staff Writer

February 4, 1994

TAMPA - A secretary at the University of South Florida who says she was injured during a faculty fracas just before Christmas filed a civil suit Thursday against one of the professors involved.

Jay Wolfson, a USF professor and member of the Hillsborough County Hospital Authority, threatened secretary Yolanda Santos, grabbed her and jumped on her back - all in a struggle over Santos' personal tape recorder, the suit charges.

"This is something one would expect to read about in grade school," said Santos' attorney, Steve Yerrid. "It's ironic in a place of higher learning that the very basics we learn as children were cast aside."

"We're comfortable that Dr. Wolfson did nothing inappropriate that day," said Tracy Sheehan, one of the lawyers representing him.

Santos' story is nothing but "a fabrication" designed to fuel a bitter faculty turf war at USF, she said.

The suit claims that Wolfson's actions amounted to assault and battery, false imprisonment and negligence and asks for $300,000 in punitive damages.

State prosecutors and USF officials are still investigating the Dec. 17 incident, which occurred at a faculty meeting in the Department of Health Policy and Management in the College of Public Health.

Details of the incident have been sketchy.

Department chairman James Studnicki, who along with Santos filed a criminal complaint, has declined to speak with reporters about it. Wolfson and interim public health dean John Skinner, who were both at the meeting, have said there was a lot of yelling that day, but nothing violent.

Santos' lawsuit offers different version of events. The meeting, which Santos was there to record, began with an argument between Studnicki and Wolfson. When Studnicki tried to adjourn the meeting and asked Santos to leave with him, Wolfson grabbed her by the arm and thrust her back into her chair, the suit says. Santos said she was frightened by Wolfson's yelling and threats.

A few moments later, Studnicki again asked Santos to leave the room and to take her tape recorder with her. When Santos reached for the recorder, Wolfson "jumped on her back and reached over her in an effort of wrestle the records from her possession," the suit says. "As a result of (Wolfson's) unexpected attack, (Santos) was violently pushed headfirst into the chair upon which the recorder had been resting and as a result sustained personal injuries."

The Provost Office has asked three professors to decide whether faculty rules were broken.

Dr. Wolfson's research interests include various aspects of health and the workplace, including the costs, quality, and outcomes associated with workers compensation and employee health benefits programs. For more than 20 years he has studied utilization and cost trends experienced by various employee/beneficiary populations in the public and private sectors in order to establish data bases that allow for the design and implementation of cost management and health status improvement systems. As Director of the Florida Health Information Center, Dr. Wolfson is responsible for reporting to the Florida Legislature on a broad panopoly of health policy issues. Dr. Wolfson has evaluated aspects of Florida's distinctive mandatory managed care workers compensation statutes for the state of Florida. He has also conducted numerous financial and legal evaluations and assessments of major health systems, including the Florida Medicaid system, Adult Congregate Living Systems in Florida, the financial health and regulatory policies affecting Florida's Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO), full service school programs, school-based drug intervention programs, and the readiness of health care organizations to respond to disasters, such as hurricanes. Dr. Wolfson combines technical financial analysis with legal and policy analysis to address financial policy issues in health care. Dr. Wolfson also directs a major, nationally funded, multiple county family AIDS system of care. This project coordinates the clinical and social service efforts of more than 80 public and private agencies to create a community-based network of family oriented, case-managed services. Dr. Wolfson's research interests also include the study of factors influencing physician and hospital organization and operation, with an emphasis on the legal and financial issues that affect these entities.
