Behind the News: Why the Rush to Murder Taran Francis?Topics: News
The attack on young Taran Francis reported below—what the ABC New correctly dubbed "Terri in the Bronx"—-came to CURE's attention last night, and I have been endeavoring to contact the family's attorney, Robert Genis, to offer CURE's assistance and support for the family in defending the life of Taran Francis, who is very much alive.
Living organs must be harvested from living human beings, and the dehumanization of this young man by means of the medical and legal fiction of so-called "brain death" is a classic, if horrid, example of the utilitarian euthanasia referenced in my Author's Note below, introducing "Brain Death"—The Hoax That Won't Die," which should be read by anyone concerned with what is being done in this case. As the title notes, the lie of "brain death" will not die, but its innocent victims like Taran Francis do.
Steve Osborne is right to note that a "disservice" is being done to Taran's family, but it is not being perpetrated by Mr. Genis, who is ably serving his clients and the interest of justice, but rather by Osborne's employer, Montefiore Hospital, and its ultimate victim is Taran Francis, a young man who would be utterly defenseless were it not for his loving family and their dedicated attorney.
Pray and act for Taran.
