Say No To Dr. Death

Shout out to my pal, Jane, for bringing this offense to my attention.

The following is information from the Terry Schiavo Foundation. It is the preamble to the petition to the president of the University of Florida to stop the appearance of "Dr." Kevorkian at the campus.

After his release from prison on June 1 for "good behavior," Jack Kevorkian, a.k.a. Dr. Death, resumed his promotion of assisted suicide as a humane conclusion for the terminally ill. He told Larry King that he felt it was important to speak to young people in high school and college about these issues.

Apparently the University of Florida agrees. Dr. Kevorkian is reportedly scheduled to speak to the students there and will be paid $50,000 to do so by the University of Florida student government association.

This invitation is an affront to everyone who stands for the value and the dignity of every human life. Dr. Kevorkian is determined to instill the future leaders of our nation with his twisted ethics of euthanasia. We need everyone 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 on the campus. Please help us prevent a culture of death by using the form below to sign our Say No to Dr. Death Petition.

Please sign this petition. If you do, please leave me a comment to let me know if we are making a difference.
