Pro-Euthanasia Attorney to Head ABA's Special Bioethics Committee

Topics: Announcements

Attorney also has ties to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

The American Bar Association's (ABA) Special Committee on Bioethics has a new head who is pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia. Chairwoman Estelle Rogers is the former executive director of the Death with Dignity National Center, a Washington-based organization dedicated to advancing assisted suicide.

Teresa Collett, a professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minnesota, told CitizenLink that Rogers has also been an ardent pro-abortion activist -- having held positions at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the Pro-Choice Public Education Project and the American Civil Liberties Union Reproductive Freedom Project.

"She has a definite perspective that is contrary to the culture of life," Collett said. "I would suggest she can't help but bring that viewpoint to the chairmanship."

Carrie Gordon Earll, senior analyst for bioethics at Focus on the Family Action, said the ABA's voice on key bioethics issues will be anti-life and anti-marriage under the thumb of Rogers.
