New Message From Ken Mullinax Regarding Mae Magouirk

Topics: Action Items

- Email
Nothing is settled in this case until my Aunt Mae is given nourishment and fluids! This is far from settled and far from over. The doctors did not meet Monday...that is Bull!
They finally spoke on Wednesday and again today AND STILL NOTHING IS SETTLED OR DECIDED BETWEEN THEM. Every day they vacillate, my Aunt Mae grows weaker and closer to death.

Sure, we attended an emergency guardianship petition hearing before Judge Boyd on Monday, April 4.

However, the Judge would barely allow our attorney, Jack Kirby, to speak and would not even allow our attorney to cross examine Mae Magourik's attending Physician, Dr. Stout, so as to ask the doctor if he would agree that there are alternative treatments to a dissected aorta which are not surgery (my Mom has had the same condition of a dissected aorta as her sister Mae and we know that Mae CAN BE successfully treated without surgery) but Probate Judge Boyd WOULD NOT allow our attorney to ask that question. Even though Beth Gaddy's forces state that the dissected aorta is the major reason they put her in Hospice.

So although we have a sort-of compromise, I am not holding out any hope especially since two of the three probate court appointed cardiologists are from the small clannish town of LaGrange, Ga.

This Judge has been NO HELP and has acted hostile and indifferent to our actions to keep my Aunt Mae alive.
And what if the two LaGrange Ga. doctors rule against my Aunt? Should we just lay back and allow her to be WITHHELD NOURISHMENT AND FLUIDS? Heck No!!!

So although this Probate Judge is a slick talker, he has definitely not been on the side of life in this matter...however that is just my opinion.

Judge Boyd has NEVER ATTENDED LAW SCHOOL yet he is a Probate Judge who has the power of life and death in these matters. But Ga. Law allow a probate judge to be a non lawyer and that is just not right. That issue is my next cause!!!

So remember when you talk to this Judge Boyd...he is a slick politician...he runs for election...he may seem nice and say the right things however the one right thing he could say is that he is going to enforce Mae Magouirk's Living Will stipulations and make sure she has substantial nourishment and fluids to keep her alive....


In closing examine the contradictions in Judge Boyd's own court writing which bears his signature. In Boyd's petition for the appointment of a temporary emergency guardian for my Aunt Mae, he writes, in "Probate Court Estate Ruling 138-05" the following:

"That a clear and substantial risk of death and or serious physical injury can occur to the proposed ward "Mae magouirk" UNLESS she stays in HOSPICE at West Georgia Health Systems."

A RISK OF DEATH WILL OCCUR TO HER UNLESS SHE STAYS IN HOSPICE? Is he whacky or what??? Hospice is a home for the dying...Hospice is death. Who does he think he is fooling??

Now do you see what we are going against with this man and now do you she why I will not sit on my hands while these doctors he has appointed finally get around to acting.


Act now....I so need everyone to stay on these folks. The light of your involvement and public SCRUTINY will embarrass these folks who embrace the culture of death and thus will allow us to give Mae the proper medical care she deserves.

Poll: 78% don't want more security for judges

Federal Judges Urge Congress, White House to Give Them More Protection
The Associated Press

Concerned about recent attacks, federal judges urged Congress Wednesday to provide them with more protection, including increased services by U.S. marshals and $12 million for home security systems. The request by the Judicial Conference of the United States follows the February murder of a federal judge's family in Chicago, the March courtroom shooting deaths in Atlanta and some critics' emotional comments after judges refused to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube.


In a recent poll with nearly 20,000 participants, Americans said they don't want to pay for increased security for judges.

Could it be that many Americans believe judges could care less about citizens safety?

If they followed the rules, they wouldn't have to worry. This means bringing the prisoner in shackles if items are found in their shoes, didn't make biased rulings, etc.

The judicial system is doing itself in.

Why would federal judges think there will be any sympathy for them after a judge ignored 2 subpeonas?

I'll be sending faxes tomorrow morning.

How is Mae Magouirk's surname pronounced? "Ma-GOO-irk"? I'd like to say her name correctly when talking to the agencies.

What if...

Mae had appointed a guardian ad lidem group of doctors and clergy to protect her? What if that group had teeth, in the form of a crack team of attorneys expert in these matters? (along the lines of the ACLU) What if the doctors in this group monitored the care she was being given and the attorneys in this group routinely prosecuted anyone who did anything detrimental to Mae or the others who had appointed them.

What if...these people weren't so very under protected by the rest of the sheep, but had a sheep dog to protect her? What if, by appointing this group as her guardian, Mae had placed herself in a shelter, BEFORE all this began, a shelter with the power to make the wolves take notice and back off?

When Terri died I knew they would become ever more brazen. With Mae we are watching their arrogance balloon outrageously. They no longer bother with any pretence or artifice. I am praying for a sheep dog for Mae, but I don't know who it would be outside of God, because we haven't gotten around calling this "dog" into existence yet.

MARY I LOVE IT THAT IS THE ANSWER_YOU HAVE TO POST THAT EVERYWHERE!!!!! Granted, it might not help her now, but this is what you have been trying to say to all of us for days now-this is it! That is an awsome, awsome plan-a group like that , that people could appoint as their guardians before they ever got sick-that really makes so much sense, I do not even feel confused thinking about it!

And alwayschooselife - I completely, completely agree! Mary, you have put this awesome plan together! I totally believe in this idea. I hope you keep on posting it at "the top article" on this site - everyone needs to see and hear this! Blessings to you!!

Oh, yes, mary, good idea.

Sounds expensive, I wonder who would pay for it?
