Keep Dr. Death Away from our Campuses!

Topics: Action Items, Assisted Suicide, Bobby Schindler

From the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Foundation:

He's at it again.

You might have heard that Jack Kevorkian, a.k.a. Dr. Death, was released early from prison on June 1, for "good behavior" following his conviction for second degree murder.

Not surprisingly, our mainstream media has already begun to help the "doctor" use his "plight" as a reason to promote the legalization of assisted suicide -- allegedly for the terminally ill -- even though we know that many of his victims suffered only from depression.

In a statement just days before his release Kevorkian told Larry King he felt it was important to speak to "[the] young people, in high school and college . . ."

Well, apparently, he is going to get his wish. As difficult as it is to believe, Dr. Kevorkian is reportedly scheduled to speak to the students at the University of Florida for an agreed fee of $50,000 to be paid by the student government association.

This is the same University of Florida where Judge George Greer attended school. It is also where bio-ethicist Bill Allen teaches--the same Bill Allen who said in an interview that he believed my sister Terri was not a person!

And now, Kevorkian could be potentially paid $50,000 to spread his message of death to our college students.

We at Terri's Foundation are deeply offended by this affront to everyone who stands for the value and dignity of every human life -- and we are determined to stand against it.

But we need your help to be effective!

We ask everyone who receives this email to join us in telling the President of the University of Florida that it is unacceptable to invite Jack Kevorkian to spread his message of death and violence to the campus of the University of Florida.

Please sign our Say No to Dr. Death Petition. We will then take your signed petitions to the University President's office and demand the University withdraw the invitation to Kevorkian.

Why is this important?

Well, unfortunately too many people simply don't see anything wrong with the Jack Kevorkians of this world and their promotion of death, which has nothing to do with compassion but is rather the total abandonment of someone who needs our love, attention and concern.

And it's simply unacceptable to allow him to deliver his message of death to our young people.

Friends, Kevorkian and his ilk know if they can shape the minds of our future leaders they will ultimately prevail in forcing their twisted views of dealing with human suffering on all of us.

Please help us send a clear message to the President of the University of Florida as well as other college presidents that convicted felon Jack Kevorkian and his doctrine of death and violence are not welcome on our campuses.

Take a moment right now to sign our Say No to Dr. Death Petition! To sign, click anywhere on the petition name.

We need as many petitions as possible. Quite frankly, to go to the President with a few hundred petitions would do more harm than good. We need to challenge him with thousands of petitions.

THAT'S WHY I ALSO NEED YOU TO FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS, AND FELLOW WORSHIPERS!

Friends, Terri's brave struggle taught us that no one is unworthy of life, and the most vulnerable among us deserve nothing less than our unconditional love, compassion and care.

Please continue to help us stop the evil of "euthanasia!" Help us reach out to vulnerable patients and their families. Help us reverse the trend toward a culture of death in our nation. Help us say NO to "Dr. Death!"

And please, help carry on Terri's legacy of life, hope and love by signing our Say No to Dr. Death Petition right now!
