Dangers of "Living Will" and "Brain Death" Exposed on Florida Talk ShowTopics: News
From the pages of Life Matters! . . .
Appearing last night on the David Allen Show, which airs on AM 1320 in Jacksonville, FL, and across the world via the Internet, Dr. Paul Byrne described the dangers of the misnamed "living will," which he said "has nothing to do with living and everything to do with dying."
Dr. Byrne is a neonatologist and physician in practice for more than 30 years. He has authored medical text books on death and dying, and has appeared before numerous state legislatures in defense of life.
An uncompromising opponent of euthanasia, Dr. Byrne presented the medical truth behind the legal fiction of "brain death" and the transplantation of vital organs it was concocted to facilitate.
Returning to the matter of advance directives, the past president of the Catholic Medical Association endorsed CURE's Life Support Directive, as the directive affording the greatest degree of protection to its users.
You may listen to or download, Allen's interview with Dr. Byrne on the show's website.
You may request a free copy of the Life Support Directive by e-mailing CURE.
