A Lethal Agenda - Part ITopics: Euthanasia advocacy, Terri Schiavo's Life Matters
Earlier this year Michael Schiavo won a 12-year legal battle and ended his wife's life by withholding nutrition and hydration. We wrote extensively on the topic and continue to oppose the rising epidemic of euthanasia.
During the fight for Terri Schiavo's life, our critics claimed that her purposeful starvation/dehydration was a "private family matter" and should be kept from the public view. They responded scornfully when we asserted that her death was murder and part of a larger agenda to change society and legalize both active and passive euthanasia of the elderly and disabled.
The agenda is undeniable. Michael Schiavo has been invited to speak at a euthanasia "ethics" conference which celebrates Terri's death as a "landmark right to die cases." And, the conference is led by none other than Ron Cranford, a right-to-
killdie activist who coincidentally was one of three doctors who testified under oath in support of removing Terri's feeding tube.
Cranford is board member of the Choice in Dying Society, which promotes doctor-assisted suicide and euthanasia, and was also a featured speaker at the 1992 national conference of the Hemlock Society (now "End of Life Choices").
The case of Terri Schiavo was not about the right to die. It was about the right to kill. Unfortunately, Cranford and other euthanasia proponents will not be satisfied by the victims they have already claimed but have an aggressive plan to target the weak and disabled.

You forgot to mention the other guest. Jay Wolfson, the one who was supposed to have given an unbiased report.
