HORROR: Mom wants right to “euthanize” her disabled children

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On a recent episode of Dr. Phil, a mom with two handicapped kids (kids that are now adults) describes why she wants the right to euthanize her severely-disabled children. Glenn explains that when the children were young she had them put in a home, and visits them a few times a month, but now, she wants to “put them out of their misery.”

“Janet and Jeffrey were able to make a decision about life, they would opt for suicide. There have been times when I thought of doing something myself, but the saying “Walk in another man’s moccasins,” unless you’ve been there, don’t judge,” the mother said when describing the situation about her children on Dr. Phil.

“Now, how does she know that, first of all?” Pat asked. “How do you know that? If they were able to make a decision, they would opt for suicide? You know that for a fact? You know what they’re feeling?”

“We’re opting for suicide. That’s not a reasonable decision,” Glenn added. “You don’t even let adults make that decision. Suicide is not an option.”

In this video from the Dr. Phil episode the mom, Annette, explains why she only visits her children two times a month. In the video she compares her children to newborn babies – an odd description in an argument to ‘put them down.’

A mother of seven, three of which are disabled, vehemently disagreed with the Annette’s desire to kill her children. She, like Glenn, was disgusted at the thought of what was being debated in this show. “I’m sorry that those children are the way they are. I’m sorry that my child might be that way someday. I will not euthanize my child because it’s too much trouble for me. I will not euthanize my child because the government doesn’t want to pay for it,” she said.

You can see the exchange in the clip below:

Frustrated by the way the argument is being positioned, Glenn brought up a good question: Why are we calling this euthanizaing? “Stop using the word “euthanize.” Stop using the word “euthanize.” We don’t even use that word with animals. We put them down. And that’s what she’s talking about, putting them down. Killing them. Why do we have to use “euthanize”? If it’s okay to do, what you are doing is killing them.”

“Yeah, this is just another pro-choice effort,” Stu replied. “Instead of calling it abortion, let’s call it choice.”

Glenn brought up the point that we don’t call killing “euthanize” on death row, we call it putting someone to death. The show is advocating injections, so why the language change?

After the mother of seven spoke up and defended the lives of Annette’s children, Attorney Geoffrey Fieger, who gained notoriety for his outspoken defense of the late assisted suicide advocate, Dr. Jack Kevorkian, joined the debate.

“You know we’re not disagreeing here. The only question is nobody should ever make you do something you don’t believe in, and the same with Annette. Government shouldn’t make her do that,” he said.

This statement caused a disturbing roar of applause from Dr. Phil’s studio audience. “The most disturbing part of the exchange is the reaction of the audience. Now, you want to know where our country is headed, I want you to listen to this. And not only listen to Dr. Phil but listen to the audience,” Glenn said.

Glenn warned listeners that if you look back at history, the reaction of this audience to what they are witnessing is extremely disturbing. At the beginning of the show, Glenn explains that Dr. Phil polled the audience members to see who agreed and who disagreed – only three disagreed with the mother’s desires.

“Almost everybody in the audience, but again, you know, you hate to bring up the Nazi references but it’s a fact,” Pat added. “This is how it started in Germany.”

He explained that “compassion” was supposedly the excuse in Germany when they started killing people, and it began with the handicapped, not the Jews. When all was said and done nearly 300,000 handicapped people had been killed. It ended up coming down to contribution to society.

The comments being made to support the arguments made by this woman about her disabled children are a red flag if you pay attention to history. Glenn noted both George Bernard Shaw and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger as examples of what this kind of thought can lead to. It is a slippery slope.

Glenn explained that the day after he saw this segment on Dr. Phil there was a story of this seven year old girl from Pennsylvania who has no hands, and just won the penmanship award. Her name is Annie Clark, and on Friday, she, along with an audience of about fifty parents of special needs children, will join Glenn on GBTV at 5pm ET for a show you do not want to miss.

    When obama was born in the 60′s, he would have been the perfect candidate for abortion being half black and half white.  He was lucky to be born.  It is sad he is too stupid or evil to know that.

    Indeed the cycle of history, the darkness of humanities worst nightmares, is repeating itself and will here in America unless we stop it. I had my friends who like me are bi-polar or others deemed as “disabled” or “useless” as the mother might have us called; and explained the pattern of history – we all would be the first put to the sword.

    The two communists here in the building I live in heard Glenns show on the second play this morning when we were, and basically explained “Good let the useless be gone,” and I told them they are in that category as being seniors.

    They seem to grasp their own words at that time.

    What have we become that we seem to feel that life is for the perfect.  Everyone should listen to Representative Henry Hyde’s speech on the House floor when the debate was going on about partial birth abortion.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Here is my feeling on that with Obama – if he was aborted, then the evil of his ideology may have continued in our time in the darkness to strike while the nation slumbered away into eternal damnation.

    Obama has worked and moved so boldy and absolutly that I honestly wonder if God has allowed him (Obama) to come to power in an last ditch effort to show and remind this generation how precious our freedoms endowed by God truly are, how close we came to losing them, and OUR need to be the custodian of those freedoms.

    Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of lentils.

    We have been given a last minute reprieve to avoid selling our birthright of freedom for eternal serfdom.

    This is what happens when you take God out of the mix. As I Catholic, I understand the Kids have a straight shot to heaven, and if you suffer the hardships from caring for them with love and patience, it increases your chances of getting there as you become a better person. As a Catholic, it also takes off time from Purgatory.

    Anyone else see a connection to Obamacare? This opened the door to healthcare rationing and gave people a sense that the easier, more expedient and far less humane route was exceptable. I still believe that America is better than this and that we should never again allow a Terry Schiavo to be murdered by bureaucracy. Fire every carrer politician this fall and cleanse Washington of the disease that has infected OUR government. Jesus cast out the money changers, let’s “We The People” cast out the power brokers.

    If anyone didn’t think society was going to hell in a handbasket before this I hope they do now. It’s appalling enough that the mother wants to murder her children but with some in the audience agreeing with her I fear we are already around the bend. What’s next? Pepsi using stem cells from murdered babies for flavoring? Oops – they’ve already done it!!! The only reason they stopped (they claim) was because of the public outcry.

    Hitler killed the disabled.  Used them as guinea pigs.  Also killed the elderly.  History is repeating itself.  This country has sunken to a new low.  There is a special place in Hell for those who play God.  That’s what this mother deserves and all in the audience who agree with her.

    Unbelievable!  Why doesn’t she just put them in a home so she isn’t bothered with them any more.  I’m in an electric wheelchair, have been for nine years.  I have five other family members also in electric wheelchairs.  So at what point do I or we become “too much trouble” or “dispensable” because in some people’s eyes I have no worth?  When we can’t take care of ourselves?  Already there.  When our families get tired of us?  Some of them are.  It is not up to people to determine when my life should end.  That date was written in the book long before I was ever born.  We are not God.  But this is where our society is headed.  We’ve deemed that if a baby isn’t “wanted” (by the one carrying it) then he/she should not be allowed to live.  So when people with disabilities are not “wanted” (by those around them or our government) is it up to them to decide if we should live?  Our country is in some serious trouble.  I may be weaker in body than most, but I’m a heck of a lot stronger in spirit than most!  I guess if the government comes to euthanize me they better be fast runners, my chair does 6 mph and I intend to run them over before they can get their needle out!

    i am so shocked…this woman is selfish and doesnt want to continue being responsible for her children…she had them and she had 7 children….she should have thought about that when she was having them…you cant just have children and throw them away if they dont come out as you planned….committing suicide is a crime…anyway….now we are talking about allowing someone to commit suicide for us on others…like terri shiavo…we watched as her husband put her down because he caused her to become handicapped and had a new woman with children in his life and wanted to start out fresh with her being his wife and couldnt because he was still married to terri….so he wanted to kill her to get her out of the way stating that she wouldnt want to be this way …handicapped…she didnt know she was handicapped…so she couldnt say…for her husband to have that say…was murder…and we didnt stop it…she was starved and dehydrated….that is and out and out murder commited…something done to someone to kill them….its one thing if someone dyes because of illness or something wrong with them but to deprive a person of life giving sustinance…that was wrong…illegal ….people are not throwaways because they arent perfect and who is to decide what is prefect and what isnt..yes this is a slippery slope…pretty soon we are going to kill people at 65 because they cant produce or contribute to the work force..or if they retire they die…this is getting scary…sanctity of life is on trail here…and the minority of the people are influencing the majority with their sobs and selfishness….we need to look beneath that evil and stop it from happening…read your scriptures and pray that you arent pulled into this form of evil….its said in the last days that people would become devoid of natural feelings…and I think that would be natural feelings even for their own children…and sanctity of life…

    This is   re disabled children – my son and daughter-in-lw had a daughter that was born with only the perifery of her brain – people told them to put her in a home – they refused to do so – they took care of her at home – she could not talk, do anything at all except perhaps a  smile when she heard her dad’s voice -special van, special bed and can u imagine taking care of her as she got older.  Lifting  her up to bath at 13 years and on.  Doctors said she could live until 21. She  died last year at the age of 17 – Shame on those people who do not want to take care of them.  They had 3 other  children who were wonderful with their sister.  Ann

    This mom must not have a very strong support system if she advocates murdering her own children.  I have a handicapped child and had another whom died 12 years ago and I would never THINK about ethanazing them, nor will I do it for myself.  I am a Catholic and do not believe in euthanazia, abortion or even capitol punishment.  WE should not and do not have the right to destroy what God has made, imo.  This is murder pure and simple, no matter how the mom would try to justify it.

    i have read some of the comments and feel the same way as I stated about terri shiavo when her husband was allowed to kill her…she was healthy other then being retarded ..which I think he had something to do with…Im a sickly person always have been since birth..I was lucky to have a period of time once i was married to not be so ill and have 5 wonderful children ..they are great people…a credit to society and Im not bragging just stating the facts…if i had been put down then my children wouldnt be here or would have been born in another family..I am so grateful to God that this kind of rhetoric wasnt happening then…probably thought of but not spoken about….I also believe that if obama hadnt been elected…we wouldnt be hearing some of the things that were kept hidden away…I am a conservative…haha and voted concervative..always will…but I can see God’s hand sometimes when allowing the wrong thing to happen to open our eyes …I often wonder how we the american people who are suppose to be the actual governemnt…remember of the people by the people and for the people and washington is our servant…yet they make way more than we do and dictate to us…obama has gone even as far as saying we dont know what is good for us so he will make that decision for us..hello….who is he talking about that we dont know…we know…most of us as you only mainly  hear from the minority …so the majority of us know what is right and what is wrong…I dont know what world he came from…but we can think for ourselves and dont need a ring through our nose with a rope to be led along because we are dummies….its why you see people objecting to what is going on right now….we need to become more involved and more outspoken on issues that are not humane..or are not right…remember we are the government…and its true that saying..all it takes for evil to succeed is for a few good men to do “nothing”.  Obama said he would be transparent…I dont think he knew exactly how transparent he was going to be…esp with his little side conversations with other leaders of different countries…but we can see through all of the things he is doing…haha…I think God wants us to see these things so we will be prepared…I believe that things happen for a reason…..

    As the mom of a disabled adult I’m stunned, and yet I’m not really surprised at all.

    I have to wonder if the woman on the stage noticed the irony here — she wants to kill her children because they don’t even recognize her, while she admits that she has tapered off her visits to them and now rarely goes at all. How can they possibly “know” her — her presence, her perfume — whatever it might have been that allowed them to know their Mom was with them? Even in the best of settings, there’s only so much that staff can do, and they will never replace loving parents. It’s no wonder these children have pulled back and do not appear to respond.

    There’s no simple solution, especially if you are someone without an eternal perspective and a relationship with Heavenly Father. But starving to death the severely disabled?! Life is difficult — we’re meant to be challenged and to grow — if it weren’t, it’d be called “heaven.”

    Matthew 25:40 — And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    I saw this episode of Dr. Phil, and I was blown away by the audience’s response to that mother who spoke against the guests.  I wanted to write her and say, “good job, Lady!  Keep shouting against this bull!”  I don’t remember how many of you know the Karen Ann Quinlan story, but when I was a teen, I was on a debate in speech class and I spoke FOR “euthanizing” her.  Now , as a mother of four, I wonder, “what was I thinking?????”  What IS this world coming to?  “Even, come Lord Jesus, come.” (

    I am mufti-handicapped from birth, and a disabled friend and I  saw this coming years ago, due to the increased focus on each person’s ability to financially contribute, which we both did for years. I have been very cautious throughout my adult life about accepting help from any government agency unless I had no option, because I fear the ability of the government to start making decisions about whether I am to live in a facility or independently. I continue to recognize, as my friend and I did years ago, that the history of Nazi Germany predicts what will likely occur, and you are correct about disabled people being murdered because they could not “contribute” (note: only financial contributions “counted”!). At that time, twins, people with albinism. Black people….any person they did not understand was “studied” (murdered through medical experimentation) or dismissively eliminated (murdered). I wish my friend and I had been wrong. I wonder how long I will be safe in what used to be America?

    My son was 26 when he was very critically injured in a car crash when the friend driving his car fell asleep at the wheel.  Numerous major broken bones, and 5 separate massive brain injuries.  He was in a coma for a month, and even when he came out we didn’t know if he’d be able to see, or hear, or speak, or know who we were.  About 6 weeks after the crash, a doctor told me “In my professional opinion, the BEST YOU CAN HOPE FOR is that he’ll be a step above a vegetative state”…  Well, it’s now 5 years later, and he needs to use a wheelchair (unable to stand or walk… for now).  Thankfully, he’s mentally pretty much who he was before the accident (except for memory loss, confusion, depression, and cognitive issues – all sporatically).  Oh, and he lives at home with us, and gives talks to high school students to help them decide to NOT drive drowsy… What if we had believed that stupid doctor’s prognosis???  This woman should have any and all parental rights/power of attorney/whatever taken away from her.  Her children look very healthy and well taken care of.

    SUGGESTION: Let’s all pass this on and encourage people to write in to the Dr. Phil show and shout our disgust at this episode and the audience’s response.  

    Also, I am studying Special Ed Law for my Special Ed endorsement as a teacher.  NO WHERE  in the laws such as IDEA is there an allowance for such idiocy.  In fact, we teachers/educators/school systems can be sued for not doing everything we can to help disabled students to achieve a FAPE (free and appropriate public education).  How in the world do these people justify these attitudes?  Hmmmm, wouldn’t that be a “hate” crime??

    I have a grandaughter  that is disabled.  She doesn’t talk either, she has seizures frequently,  She also has a smile that lights up the world. She is 16 and I put her in the bathtub.  She can help a little bit.  She helps very little with dressing.  There is no way I would even consider putting out this light. She is my own special blessing.  I would give my life for her.

     There is no such thing as Purgatory…nor can you do enough good works to earn your way into Heaven.  Entrance into heaven is based upon the work of Christ dying on the cross for the forgiveness of sin.  It is a free gift, Grace through faith in Christ ALONE.
    As a “Catholic” you have no chance of getting there.  If you are placing faith in your own “good works”  you can never be sure if you have “done enough”.  It is  Christian faith that believes it is not what WE do, but what CHRIST did for us (in dying for our sins and paying for them on the cross) .  Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, he was buried and rose again on the third day, according to the scriptures.  Christ offers you eternal life by placing your faith and trust in him  alone (Not the Catholic church).
    If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him form the dead…you shall be saved.  I wish that more Catholics would read the Bible instead of trusting in their church leaders, and acts of righteousness to save them.  I will be praying for you Christopher that you will see the light before you die ( there is no hope for you after you die)

    I’m a lone wolf on this one. I am a fan of Dr. Kevorkian and I believe in assisted suicide also. I watched my mom a retired nurse that had told me never to let her end up in a home with no quality of life. The rest home made sure she stayed alive to collect the benefits of $250 a day plus. When there is no quality of life, then there is no life. I have told my wife and brother to make sure I am not around to go through what mom went through. If I can take care of it myself I will. In nature you will not see a creature that can not take care of itself and in some ways I think nature is right. I’m not condoning anything like Hitler or having the government tell you when it’s time. If you have a living will and have your wishes stated and in the case of this mother on Dr. Phils which I believe is out of love and mercy I’m all for it.

    Obviously no God exists for this mother, and more surprisingly, *may exist * for only 3 in the audience.

    I read a story once, which may not be related, but may be interesting a few.
    A marriage counsuler administred to a couple dozen spouses with marriage issues.

    At the end of one session, he said to them, “Next week I want everyone of you to bring a photograph, not the best one, of the person in your life that you hate the most”.

    At the next session, he asked them to be seated, then pointed to a blank frame on the wall.  He then asked each one, in turn, to pin their photo within that frame, backed with fabric.
    As each did so, he gave them 3 darts, asking them to throw them at their photo.

    When all those, who participated, had finished, he went up to the frame which was backed with fabric.  Needless to say the fabric was in shreds.

    He carefull removed what fabric remained.

    Behind the fabric was a painting of Jesus Christ!

    Too bad that Dr. Phil didn’t know this story.  Maybe he could have used it.
    Maybe he would have been run off the stage.

    I’m 84 now, in pretty good health, but my parts are old and bit worn.  I couldn’t work for long periods so I don’t contribute much any longer.  I’ve junked a couple old cars in my life, and several broken down lawn mowers, just about anything that no longer contributed to my life.

    I accomplished and did a lot in 50 years of work, but, guess I’m ready for the junkyard too.

    It’s a small slope from legalization of murder to government sanctioned killings. Look at abortion, and now ‘mercy’-killing. It’s not only legal to kill others, it’s paid for by taxpayers. Abortion and euthanasia are not “personal decisions” because people are murdering other people, and the government allows and supports it. When will they start enforcing it?

     But who  gives her the right to decide when to die? They arent elderly they have not lived all their live yet- they have challenges sure but look at Stevie Wonder born blind, and other people who are famous- but have disabilities- they had the right to live- till they passed away- dissability does not mean you are going to die anytime so in most
    cases

    That poor, lost, heartless woman. How can she look at her children and determine that they’re miserable? And by the way – babies CAN see and hear, they just can’t respond “appropriately”. I bet she didn’t hold that against them when they wouldn’t focus on her face at 2 days old, or respond to their name at a week. What a monster.

    I am the blessed mother of a beautiful child who has special needs.  Let me tell you about how he is different than the rest of society. 

    He will never hurt another.  He will always accept a person for who they are.  He will never be racist or materialistic.  He will never care if someone is fat or thin, pretty or homely, bright or challenged –  - or disabled. He values all people.   He never asks for more than is given him and is perfectly content to be himself. He takes joy in his accomplishments as well as the accomplishments of others and is always supportive – wanting the best for everyone. He is guileless and knows only how to love others — He has never expereinced hatred or animosity and never will. He will never lie, cheat or steal or commit any offense. He loves God instinctively and with abandon.  He is always full of gratitude and wonder.

    Who is handicapped?  It is the rest of us.  Would that we we were all created as perfectly as he.-

    The opposite of love is not hate but use.   This woman is selfish and it is a sin for her to kill her children.  We live in a culture of death and we are moving toward a culture of murder.  These children exist because people have intrinsic value beyond what they can do.  Mercy is not to kill these people but to have them live.  People are born with dignity.  Maybe her children exist to make their mom a better person.  First it is people with disabilities and then it is people with simple diseases like diabetes.  Where does this end???

    Actually the government does allow you to be more humane to animals than to people. People have to suffer in most cases. “Shouldn’t we be as humane if not more to our fellow human beings as we are to animals? ” I absolutely agree with your statement because it is exactly what I am saying. ” Possibly maybe I’ll be enlightened when I don’t have to listen to the corrupted drivel of people who think they have the Authority to determine whether another human being lives or dies.” If you are referring to me I don’t advocate for death panels or people that are not family making any decisions. My mother had Alzheimer’s, diabetes, blind, amputee, could not speak etc. The hospital would give her insulin and oxygen to keep her alive. I asked for what reason? Do you have a miracle that will bring her back to me whole? I ordered them to stop (after I found out they were doing this) and to give her morphine for comfort so she did not suffer and she died three days later.I can only imagine that in your perfect world she should have been kept alive at all costs so she could suffer longer. I’m so glad that we are not related.

The thing you don’t get is if people can’t express themselves properly, they can’t tell you where it hurts or how they feel.  I know if I get really bad, I hope someone is merciful enough to end it for me… We refuse to let animals suffer, we if fact “put them down” out of love and mercy, but yet we insist that no matter what the circumstances are, no matter the suffering or excruciating pain they are experiencing, a human must live until “God” takes them…. It’s insanity at it’s peak, period.  I’m not talking about letting pissed off teenagers off themselves, so don’t go there… I love Glenn and agree with him a lot, but I seriously disagree with this…

    Why is this surprising? Since 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court (nine people out of a population of almost 300 million at the time) decided the murder of the unborn was moral, ethical, and a Constitutional right, why is it surprising that in 2012 a mother would suggest she ought to be able to murder her adult children? What would be surprising is if the U.S. Supreme Court DISAGREED with her. After all, the court gave only MOTHERS the legal right to murder their own unborn children so logically, that right could be extended to born children as well.

    C Everette Koop (might not be spelling it right) co-authored a book with a famous Christian writer before he was made our country’s Surgeon General by Reagan, so it was in the 70s, in which he foretold that exactly this sort of thought, that killed so many in Nazi Germany would progress from the Supreme Court decision to allow abortion on demand. He and his co-author, told all that Glenn and the others here spoke about how the Nazis started with the mentally handicapped, went to the physically handicapped, then to the old, then to the Jews, taking out decent people along the way who disagreed with their slaughter.
    I had been surprised that a man who wrote such a book made it to Surgeon General of this country. Either Reagan was unaware of the book, or was even more of a decent man than I already think he was.
    I wish I could remember the name of the book. It outlined everything that is going on right now in THIS country as being a parallel with Nazi Germany and warned up this was to come. This book was written more than 30 years ago warning us this was to come in OUR country.  It was largely ignored and is now right at our doorsteps.
    We started by giving in to the feminist argument that an unborn baby is a parasite dependent on its mother, so the mother has the “right” to kill that baby. Now it is progressing to where the handicapped or elderly are parasites to the country, so they should also be killed, for the better good. We’ve already seen and heard how if Obamacare is approved, if you are over 70 you will be considered too old to bother spending gov’t insurance money to save. Like Obama himself said, there is a point where it is better to give grandma pain meds than waste money trying to save her. When a peoples start equating life with the cost of maintaining that life, you know you are in trouble. The concept that life is sacred has been lost.  And in this country, right now, with the left in control, no life is sacred.

It should not be asked, because common decency should dictate the proper thing to do.

    Unbelievable! If this woman didn’t want to take care of the 1st child that was disabled then it was her responsibility to stop having children! Under our constitution they have no right to make the decision to take someone’s life because they are disabled! We are to protect LIFE! I have a granddaughter that is blind and may have some other developmental issues. I fear for her life if this comes to be. I had 3 dyslexic children, putting them through school was tough but we never gave up and they are all now productive adults with special talents.

    I have a dog that is 15 years old and can barely use her back legs. She sleeps much of the days but gets herself up for dinner time, dog treats and just to be with the family as much as possible. I can’t even put her down!

    This must be a very cold-hearted woman to even consider this about her children. She isn’t even caring for them as they are in a home. Is this a financial consideration for her? They didn’t ask that question, at least not on the clips posted here. The audience response shows just how far the moral values of this country have gone down. Chilling…do they understand at all what may be coming to their family?

    Why didn’t the mother quit having children after the first disabled child was born?What about her children that aren’t disabled but may be carrying a gene that could cause their child to be disabled.Do we as a society decide that we should also “euthanize” her other children so that any defective genes they may be carrying can be eliminated from the genetic pool.Maybe the mother should commit suicide and then she wouldn’t have to worry about the kids or anything else since she seems to not care about anyone but herself.

While most of that time has been spent with folks who are not as debilitated as this lady’s children, I have learned that so, so many of them are so, so much more aware than might meet the eye. I am also a dedicated history buff who has seen video of “my people” as they were being herded to the Nazi concentration camps. It brought tears to my eyes as I heard the description of the rationale presented to the German public about “acts of compassion” toward “useless eaters”. While I feel for the plight of the woman on Dr. Phil’s show, her desire is one which is a good distance down the slippery slope which can bring us to a place of indescribable horror.

    So? It is a bad thing to want to end the life of a person who has no life or awareness, or is suffering.
    But it is ok to murder a murderer in prisons, shoot a criminal or someone in war, or blow them up from a plane. It is ok to kill an animal or plant.
    I dont get it. What is the difference? Isnt LIFE – LIFE?
    - Look, humans are the TOP PREDATOR on the planet. We thrive on killing, and always have, and always will. Americans are no different than someone in any other country. We are not a ‘special or new’ species, with some ‘new found conciousness’.
    If you condone killing in ANY form, by ANY means - then kill. If you dont – then dont kill.

    I was sickened to the core when I read this article.  I have spent ten years working with people of all ages and all severities of various disabilities.  I went to school for Psychology and got a specialization in Developmental Disabilities because I wanted to make a difference.  I have learned so much about the about the pain many individuals have endured, and I was hopeful that acceptance was finally here.  After working with children for seven years, I spent three years working with adults who had been institutionalized.  A majority of these people endured neglect, abuse (physical, verbal and sexual) along with scientific testing and a multitude of other horrendous acts.  If anyone one group should be angry at society, it should be them.  Yet in my experience, these individuals were the friendliest, most loving, kindest people I had ever met in my life.  Even those individuals who relied on myself and other staff for their every need from eating to toileting, were the happiest people I knew.  Just to see them smile and laugh even though they lack the control of basic needs proves that to me.  Who is to determine whether or not their lives are meaningful? Quality of life is not simply based on a disability; it’s far more important to see and realize the relationships individuals with developmental disabilities form with their peers, staff, family and friends.  You see the joy these relationships bring them.  And it doesn’t take much to understand that they are no different from any other individual without disabilities.  As humans we should be protecting our own kind, not destroying lives based on any one persons’ opinion. It’s not up to us to determine when someone’s life should end, we should never play the role of God.  Instead I would hope society would be there to help bring the most to this wonderful group of people.

     Don, How dare you judge!   As far as Death row inmates, evil people should be killed, not innocents.  As far as war, I agree it has become to global, but I believe you should be able to defend yourself.  God made us omnivores; we eat meat and plants to survive. That woman is selfish and doesn’t want to visit her children anymore. 
    It puts a damper on her style.  She has no idea what kind of joy these

    The major difference with Terri and these kids is Terri needed machines to stay alive. It was far from natural and in a way playing God. There is more to the Shiavo case than can be explained, but the biggest issue was she had said she didn’t want to be kept alive on machines. Which is why in FL now you are required to have legal documents stating that is your wish. Selfishness can run on both sides, this woman is selfesh in the fact she doesn’t want to handle the responsibilites that come with disablities, and Terri’s mother didn’t want to deal with losing her daughter. That selfishness refused to see truth, and ultimatley ended with courts deciding.

    This government was created so that when the govenment became opressive or did not align with the beliefs and views of its peole we could restart the gavernment.  
    I do not think it will happen, because when we deciding to make this government and let the powers go unchecked, we have done what the Germans had done; we have become like sheep.
    The Jews having decided to be governed by the German Government also conceded their will to the government, granting them power over them.
    So us like them have allowed our government to go and we think (some of us) that if we arm ourselves we will fight against state terrorism but we will not.   I believe that we will be just as the Jews who so willingly walked into the furnaces.
    The people of those camps wanted us to remember their story.  Then along the way we have forgotten to whatch for what led to thier story and the history of what occured.
    It is not even that far back; 70 years ago was the begining of the Holocaust, we should have been looking at what caused it and compared it to where we are in our society and the views of those who are writing the laws that we have to live by.

    What we have on Dr. Phil’s show is a Category Error, as Glenn and Stu have been pointing out.  A Category Error is asking the wrong question, hence you get wrong answers.  I used to work in IT, computers, and the old adage, GIGO applies here, “Garbage In, Garbage Out.”  Glenn and Co. are correct, is it “putting them to death” and/or “putting them down.”  “Euthanasia is “good death in Greek, but in reality, it is an oxymoron, what this woman wants to do is murder along with the 90% of the “Sheeple” in the audience.  I applaud the courage of the 10%, the Righteous.

    Shame on those people.  My grandfather was among the first to hit the beaches at Normandy, Omaha Beach, in World War II.  He fought through France and all the way to Buchenwald and saw all of this.  He fought and killed people fighting a regime that this lady and the 90% of the audience are all for.  I also knew another World War II vet who was in the pacific against the Japanese.  The Japanese were just as bad with their Unit 731.  He just passed away at 90 a few weeks ago, he always had nightmares about the time he had to shoot one Japanese and bayonet another, but he told me, “I had a job to do, fight for freedom and the right to live.”

    If we let these people get their way, not only God and Jesus will weep but so will World War II vets, the victims of the Holocaust and so many others well as well.  Sometimes I wish these World War II vets woyuld come back, we need a Normandy type liberation in this country it seems.  World War II, although not perfect in this, was closest to a modern day “morality play” if you will, between good and evil.  These people forget that or are not willing to remember and learn that.

    To borrow the main line from the 1983 Peanut’s special on the Normandy Invasion (and Flander’s Fields), “What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?”

    It’s a shame that we fought a terrible war over this to have this stuff surface in our own country.

    God’s commandment is quite clear.  “Thou shalt not kill”.  As a mother of a handicapped adult child, I fear what her life will be like when we, her parents are no longer here to care for her.  but i realize that all of us have a purpose on this earth.  Perhaps those of us with disabilities are here to help others gain their way into heaven.
    As a nurse I also realize that there are many ways to make the lives of persons with pain and discomfort more comfortable.

    I think we should “euthanize” any one stupid enough to consider voting BO back in office for they are apparently too mentally impaired to exist (Just joking). But kidding aside, this is horrible. We were put on this earth to endure a life granted to us by whom ever you believe to be your creator. Terri Shiavo’s mom wanted nothing more than to keep her daughter alive, it’s sad to see a mom who wishes her children dead. I don’t know if they’re in pain or feel love for those around them. I would hope that they have a simple peace in their hearts. But we just don’t know, I don’t know if the mother spends enough time with them to even try and connect. But either way it’s hard to judge, it’s very difficult for me to try and put myself in her place. If it were my loved one, especially if they are not in serious pain, I would chose life, even if it’s limited. Perhaps their simple enjoyments are all they need.

    Don’t know where you live, Dave, but in CA we have medical plans which allow we the

    patients decide on how we want to live/die.  For instance, should one have a massive

    heart attack, he can have a health document where he has checked off: do not resusci-

    tate.   If he’s been in an accident and the doctor says he will always be in a vegetative*

    state and he has checked off: no heroic efforts (or however it reads), then he knows he

    won’t be put on a feeding tube or breathing machine.  In matters like this, I think all the

    family should ask is for the patient to be kept comfortable and free from pain.

    *Personally, I would ask for a 2nd or 3rd opinion re: vegetative state before acting.  This

    would depend to a large degree on the age of the patient.

     I remember a movie (1968?) where everyone got put down when they reached the age of 30. It reduced the population; reducing the cost and demand for social services; no more SS, retirement or big demand on the health care system. All the young voters (majority) voted this in. It worked great, that is, until the young saw how quickly 30 comes around.

    Big government and nationalized healthcare are taking us in a similar track. Who is going to decide who gets needed healthcare? It is the money changers. When it is determined that the return on investment (ROI) for needed care falls below a certain point, no more healthcare for you; except maybe assisted suicide.

    Those people truly disgust me.  How would any one of them like it if we had a discussion, with them in the room but not allowed to speak, about their personal merits and accomplishments for the greater good of Mankind and weigh the choice of their life or death based upon that.  Have a debate on their value to society and see if they pass the test.  Perhaps then, they might have a twinge of feeling for those of us who might be locked into a condition where they cannot always express themselves but are feeling and thinking human beings nonetheless.

    I honestly don’t know what to say; I don’t believe there are any words strong enough to show my utmost disgust for this woman.  As a woman who cannot have children (cancer 13 months old, confined inside uterus, surgery at 3 1/2 and has been cancer free since then), It eats at me to see women abusing (this goes for teen mothers as well) their God given GIFT!  Childbirth and being a mother is a precious gift given to us BY GOD. Why would you go so far as to MURDER your own child (I agree with Glenn, Pat, and Stu, stop romanticizing it and calling it something other than what it is, its murder, period.) I would give anything to be able to have a child with my husband.  Suicide or Murder is NEVER an option. Is adoption out of the question?  What is wrong with people, oh wait yea, that’s right they don’t believe in God anymore, we’ve taken him out of this country and our lives.  We have progressed down this slippery slope, first it started with its okay for an abortion in this circumstance (rape and incest) and then for this and that and now we’ve gotten to where a bill is in the process for allowing abortions 9 months AFTER the child is born!  WHAT?! Sin is sin people, there is no gray area.  God tells us things for a REASON and they are not to be taken lightly. People thought I was crazy when I said legalize faggots to marry and before you know it people will want to marry their dogs, well news flash a man in Canada is actually fighting for this right (don’t believe me, the story was on theblaze.com read it for yourself).  Ann, dadgum, Kathy, Kryssi, KatM ..

    This is how Hitler started. 

     Hitler’s second cousin, Aloisia Veit, suffered from schizophrenia. For nine years, she was locked up in Vienna’s Am Steinhof Psychiatric Institution.  In those days, the Nazi Youth  Program branded thousands  as “unworthy of life.”  Aloisia was transferred to the Hartheim Lunatic Asylum.  It was a death sentence.  Over 18,500 mentally ill patients were murdered in Hartheim. Aloisia Veit died in the Hartheim gas chamber in December, 1940, a victim of the mass murder engineered by her great-uncle, Adolf Hitler.

     The government is elected by the people. 50% of the population has below average intelligence. Overall, out of the 100%, most people do not really understand the issues or the best way to deal with them. Their votes count just as much as those that know all the details on every issue. It is really those who don’t know what’s going on, the majority, that elect our representatives. They like being told what they are going to get. They believe the lies because they are what they want to hear and they never check the facts. So we get what we deserve

    I have worked as a bus driver for our local county DD program.  I can say first hand that our special needs are not given enough credit.  I pick them up at their own homes, which I can say Most, not all but most who are taking care of their own family member does care and does do a great job.  I have seen to many that come out of group homes that need better care than what our tax dollars are paying for.  Alot of the homes have mostly africans but other foreigners taking care of them.  I have seen clients that havent had baths, need their teeth brushed and their wheel chairs cleaned.  most of these caretakers can hardly speak english, they dont understand us drivers and assistants when we tell them to give our clients baths.  We usually have to say “soap and water”.  I have told providers(like a case worker) about these things and also that there is no way they could know our clients when they only see them maybe once a month.  of course they dont like this because it’s the truth.  I have personally give a client clothing just to find out that it was taken from them.  Alot of this goes on in the group homes.  i live across the street from a group home and see the doors wide open in the winter, caregivers washing their cars, caregivers standing on the porch talking in their native tongue for up to an hour when they should be in the house cleaning and taking care of the clients.  if more tax payers knew what was going on with these clients and group homes I think they would stop passing the levys.  I have seen shady things going on in the transportation department and have tried to report it.  but no one will touch it, not news media, news paper or radio stations.  I have worked with the transpertation department for 7 yrs now, i dont like what I see going on and will probably have to find other employment very soon.  please pray for our special needs people , they need all the prayers they can get.

    I would like to clarify one thing….you don’t have to have GOD in your life to know its wrong to euthanize a human or animal for that matter. Its a way of getting rid of something no one seems to have a use for. We are to eager and unsympathetic when it comes to taking a life. I think its to easy to just turn the other way. Im not religious in fact Im an Atheist but I believe in life!  In fact euthanasia is playing God! So all you religious believers out there think about how many lives are taken every day because of our human beliefs. Go to a shelter and see which and how many animals are up not for adoption but for euthanasia in one week. I think its just a way of life to throw away the useless. I also believe that’s why when some humans kill another its just their way of getting rid of something they themselves have no use for. Killing has become a way of life and accepted by many CHURCH GOERS! Our moral and reasoning are or seem to be very clouded. We have a dog or other animal and it may not “fit” into our lifestyle anymore so we take it to a “non kill shelter” who then if it cant be adopted send it to a “KILL” shelter and we aren’t the ones killing the pet but the shelter. We have a clear conscious that the pet will find a new home…. how stupid of us as humans. We take the trash somewhere else to be disposed of. Now when will they have somewhere to take humans who need to be disposed!

    My mother had a couple of brain anuerisms 20 years ago. She was left with severe physical limitations (and mental reprecussions) but she has worked around them through the years. It hasn’t been easy for her or anyone else in the family. She walks with a walker but she can walk a mile or more! If someone had decided that her life was not worth living my children would not have known their grandmother. In fact she would have missed out on knowing 4 grandchildren. She may not be like other grandmothers but my kids are much more compassionate and caring and patient kids for having a mimi who spoils them but also needs their help.

    I do have one minor disagreement. This isn’t starting like it did in Germany, this started almost 40 years ago with abortion. This is just the next logical step for the soul-less. Not a huge leap from a poor child’s quality of life to the quality of life of the disabled and elderly.

    From abortion, partial-birth abortion (killing a perfectly healthy child outside the womb), to some now advocating for after-birth abortion up to 3 yrs old, and now to this. The left is INSANE and rooted in evil. They want to imprison someone for cutting down a tree, but see no problem whatsoever with this line of thinking. We are doomed as a society if this idea isn’t met with fierce shame, ridicule, and intolerance. This woman has her handicapped children in a home and only visits them twice a month. How much of a burden can they be? I’m sorry, she’s dispicable.

    I am saddened by the response of the audience but not
    surprised. Remember when God (in Old Testament -Gen. 18: 16-19:29) was going to
    destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and Abraham pleaded with the Lord to have mercy – “You
    would never kill godly people along with those who are evil, would
    you?…….The Lord said, ‘if I find 50 godly people in the city of Sodom, I
    will save it. I will spare the whole place because of them.”  The scripture continues and Abraham boldly
    asks in verse 32 “…..what if only ten are found there?”  Ten were not found and Sodom and Gomorrah
    were destroyed.  Praise God there was a
    holy woman who spoke out with her heart wrenching and tears streaming. We must
    stand up for God’s truth. Every person was created in His image – we each have a purpose and we are loved by God our Creator. Let us call
    out to our Lord with all our hearts for His mercy. God is counting on us.

    You can’t compare someone who doesn’t have limbs to someone kept alive by a feeding tube. These adults are a WHOLE LOT worse off. Who even knows if they can feel anything they’re so severly bad off. It’s also not known if killing them is the guest lady’s last resort or one of the first. If it’s the last resort and everything else has been done she should release them to the care of the state and walk away from even thinking about them(Seems like she does that already mostly). They don’t need such a bad mom as she is anyway. If it’s one of the first then shame on her.

    I won’t judge her on putting them in a home because I don’t know if it’s possible for her to take care of them on her own. They may truly be getting better care where they are. However, not visiting them because it “bothers” her is resprehensible. She has no idea if they recognize her or not. I would hope that even if my children had to be institutionalized, I wouldn’t abandon them. That’s what this is. It’s abandonment. She left them there and is done with them because it makes her sad to look at them. Where do we draw the line on this attitude? Down’s Syndrome/ Blindness? Deafness? Not being an honor student? Wrong gender? Not pretty enough? I felt like dying when I was a fat kid. My mother put me on starvation diets. My father compared me to his friend’s daughter who was a popular cheerleader. Should I have been “euthanized” because I didn’t meet their expectations? I wonder how many of the people in this audience would be appalled at the idea of killing (death penalty) a murdering pedophile yet would be willing to kill these disabled people. This is why pro-abortion/anti-death penalty people make my head explode.

    You bring up a good point. She has SEVEN children. Why, if you feel that caring for a disabled child is too difficult, would you continue to have children? It seems like, after one disabled child, you’d stop. After two, I’d certainly stop. It makes me wonder if she has seven because she’s opposed to birth control. If you’re opposed to birth control, wouldn’t suicide certainly be against your principles? It doesn’t make sense.

     This is very disturbing and frightening of where our society has come. It seems that life means nothing. Because it’s difficult for her, she wants to end her burden.  It’s not up to her; it’s up to God.  Since this woman only visits her adult children twice a month, why visit at all?  Maybe they wouldn’t know or maybe they would, but that doesn’t seem to matter to her.  As a parent, a mother, she has a responsibility and that is to protect the life of her children always.  How can anyone determine who’s life is valuable and who’s isn’t?  Supporting 3 kids with a home, food, activities, clothes, personal care items, braces, glasses, college, etc could be considered a financial burden on my husband and I, but it is a burden that we accepted when we became parents.  What comes next after ‘putting our children out of their misery?’ Eliminating them because of the financial burden they cause or just because we get tired of them?  Murder is murder, whether a disabled adult/child, a perfectly healthy individual, or an unborn child.  Responsibility is what everyone seems to lack anymore.

    I think when people make decisions like this I wonder what their relationship with God is like? Do they know Him? However, without faith…without an understanding of His Love and His suffering that He did for us…I believe it would be easy to then look at our own sufferings and seek to find a solution our way. I also think that in a crowd we have become so afraid to stand up against the crowd when we know they are wrong that we don’t. Especially when it comes to calling a spade a spade. Euthanasia is murder, but murder is too harsh of a word to use, so it is masked in a more polite or medical term. We should be less concerned with hurting someone’s feelings or stepping on the toes of someone, and more concerned with speaking Truth. We should judge the actions right or wrong. Murder under any name is murder. This show depicts symptoms of a greater problem in our present world. We are selfish people; good people who have left themselves stray from the natural law and order of life. Reading this makes me realize how much more I need to devote my time to inviting God into my life. Let us not be perpetrators of evil.

    Murder is still murder no matter what “GOOD” excuses you use. This mother being ‘upset’
    because her children are disabled needs to deal with HER problem of being ‘upset’.  Killing her children is not the answer it’s a sign of selfishness on her part. Perhaps she needs to understand God does not always create perfect bodies for people. It may be a chance for her and those around her to learn compassion, patience, love and tolerance.

    Seeing Obama’s face on TV everyday….ad nauseum upsets me too. But that doesn’t give me the right or the authority to want him dead just because I am upset. I’m sure I can learn many things from him (and I might add…mostly what not to do if I’m in a governmental position nevertheless I can still learn)

    The audience’s reaction is a sad testament to our society today– including the 92% of aborted children with a diagnosis of Down syndrome.  What started in the 19th century as “eugenics” and putting people out of their “suffering” has escalated into the Jewish Holocaust, genetic tampering, cloning and genetic manipulation of characteristic traits.    If anyone ever said my daughter with Down syndrome “suffers”, they are missing the entire point.  She is more content and happy and COGNIZANT  of that joy than our typical children who suffer through bullying, name calling, the acquisition and need for stuff for social status and more.  Really?  We need to look at ourselves very clearly.

    Oh, Helen!  You hit the nail smack on the head!  I am a mother of a handicapped child who has huge problems, yet, he’s here in my home, and I take care of him.  No-one else has that right, or that blessing, at least till I am gone from this Earth.  I have lost marriages, yes, plural, over this.  But here’s the truth.  I am also an RN, who has many years of experience working full-time in the Med-Surg units of our local hospitals, and as a Home Health RN, and I have experienced “life after death” personally,  (including  my own life-death-then-life experiences, twice,) as well as while helping other patients who were dying at the time ‘crossing over’.  I will stick my head out here for all that don’t understand to come down upon, and tell you that there IS life after death, and if there is, (which there IS,) then it would logically follow that there is more to our story than be born, live and die here on Earth.  You’re right about the lessons.  We are in a ‘school’ of sorts, here, and I have, over and over, personally experienced in my many years, exactly what your point was;  -That if we don’t get the ‘correct’ response to the lesson we are immersed in at the time, we will experience the ‘problem’ over and over in our lives till we get it right.  -Just like being held back in school till we get that all-important test question right.  I will also step on out there and go so far as to say that because of my experiences, I KNOW there is a GOD, and HE is our GOD, and we can accept it or deny it, much like the woman in the story above accepted then denied her motherhood,  but it is what it is, regardless of what we choose to think or to do about it.  That is my testimony and I am sticking to it.  :)  I know what I know.  I also know full-well that people are free to choose to accept or to deny GOD, and those that accept HIM have a much deeper happiness that horrible life-experiences does not destroy, and those that deny HIM are never truly, deeply happy.  They are always moaning about something and they have a sense that something definitely needs changed in their lives, so they go about trying to influence others to accept their ideas they came up with themselves, like euthanizing the handicapped, or legalizing child porn, or any number of other dumb ideas that hurt others, never realizing or admitting that it is their relationship with GOD that is the thing that needs changing.  Bless you, Helen, for understanding!

    As a preacher of the Word of God, I have said from the pulpit many times that I have more respect for pornographers than I have for the likes of Oprah and Dr. Phil.  At least, a pornographer does not pretend that he/she is doing something besides the obvious — providing pornography.  But, Dr. Phil pretends to be being helpful and providing life answers in his shows.  It’s like D-Con.  Most of it is nutritious corn meal.  But, it’s the small amount of rat poison in it which will kill, just the same.  I have a surreal feeling, as I watch these clips.  Is this the America in which I was reared?  Dr. Phil seems far too sympathetic with this woman.  She is a textbook example of one who is “without natural affection.”  Sure, this is a picture of where our society is.  But, the Oprahs and Dr. Phils do nothing more than add fuel to the fire.  Without being a judge, I can simply see from the Scripture that such as these will answer to a Higher Court, to the Judge of Judges, some day.  Shame on Dr. Phil; and, shame on America for supporting his poison.

    I usually don’t comment on much, but I can’t help myself on this one. I cannot believe that a parent would want their child “put down”, “murdered” because they are too selfish to take care of them. Don’t give me any crap about they would want to commit suicide. That is just plain ignorant. And, another thing I don’t understand, our illustrious government and other people want to have involuntary suicide for seniors that are disabled or whatever. What the heck do they think they will become if they are lucky enough to grow old???? A Senior…and if they are lucky, without any problems. Every person in Government will grow old for crying out loud. Don’t they get that? Heck, some of them are as old as dirt now. Should they be put down? Oh, I forget, they get to live cause they are so open minded their brains have fallen out and they LOVE the way the country is headed. Like some one else on this page, I have thought of leaving the country. France sounds good about now. But, they are in just as bad shape as our country. And, I don’t give up….So, I will continue the fight to turn our country back around and trying to get across to the bozo’s out there that this is not the way to go. I’ve vented enough now.

    As a nurse this situation angers me. These children where born and live for a reason. My fear is what I will be forced to do because of government mandates when Obama care takes effect and is not repealed. You realize we will start with holding care for the elderly and disabled. We will be forced not to place feeding tubes, ect. for people with conditions like these children. Infants born with certain conditions will be left to die and our death rates will go up. Or quality health care will no longer be. Our country is no longer the country it once was and I am afraid for the future my children will have to face.

    I have worked with individuals with the disorder that this mother delt with. It is tough. I also very much care for individuals no matter what their disability may be.
    I do find it extremely interesting, that this thread condemns our government for something a mother in Canada said. I don’t see any connection to our government or to the Health Care Act- which would actually help support families with children with disabilities.
    I also find it very confusing, that individuals who support ultra conservative view points, condemn liberals as the “Hitler” like villians. In my 30 plus years of experience; it has been the right wing that has consistently cut funding for supports of individuals with disabilities and their families. Without adequate supports, euthanasia might seem more appealing to families.

    Proverbs 6:16-18 (NIV) “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are destestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil.” 
    What amazes me is the supposed rationale these people use to eliminate their problem.  
    God forgive them and us!

    If you don’t know if they’re happy or not, why even make the decision?  She doesn’t go because she can’t look at them.  How selfish is that?!  So she’s making her decision on what SHE sees while nothing is known about what the children see.

    And you know what else?  In this country we presume that anyone who wants to commit suicide is insane, by virtue of the fact that they want to commit suicide.  If you call 911 and report that somebody just attempted to commit suicide, they’ll send an ambulance and the paramedics will try to save the person’s life, against his will if need be.

    Sometimes, I think, just like in asking forgiveness….it isn’t so much for the other person as to change and grow our hearts into the likeness of Jesus.  When we have disabled or limited children(my granddaughter is deaf), it teaches us and we grow.  I love her dearly.  She just graduated from college and is was working for Boeing before she married.  Everyone has the priviledge of quality of life. We do not judge nor do we take another person’s life.  That is murder!  thou shalt not kill means just that!  God has His reasons.  Teach us, Lord, teach us!

    I am the farther of a son with autism. Not so long ago people like my son where locked away in institutions and forgotten by all but those who walked the halls of such places. Shut away and forgotten and never expected to have any quality of life. REALLY. After many hard years of fighting the system, learning all we could, and providing all the support and love we could muster my son is now 12 years old. He is an honor roll student, and has been on the principals list the past two years. He is one of the most honest and sincere people you will ever meet. So as you might have guessed this sort of thing hits a little close to home for me.

    Dr. Phil shame on you. To me it seamed that you are on her side. You are not a parent of a disabled child, You can’t even begin to know what it like to take care of a child with disability, These children have compassion and love, even though some of them can’t show it physically. I am a parent of a disabled child and we love her dearly. God gave me her to us and for that we am Blessed. My daughter is 19 and she is living with us, I do a lot for her, yes its hard but she is worth it. When my daughter was born we fought the doctors & felt the pressure to take her off the ventilator, their only argument was our life was going to be hard and expensive, we stood strong. She is our whole world and we Thank God that she is here with us, all children are a gift from God, disabled or not.  

    God Bless You Glen Beck & Team, Stay Strong!

    Well first off, I’m irritated that I’m not able to watch these clips. They aren’t downloading, ugh technology. Tho it’s probably good since I’m at such a level of disgust & anger from simply reading about it. I too am a mother of two kids. My son, almost 14 yro, has severe Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy. My daughter, almost 12 yro, is basically typical tho she does have ADDHD & Sensory Processing disorder. My son is completely reliant on others for EVERYTHING. So physically, he is like a 100 lb baby. He has multiple other diagnosis including but not limited to Epilepsy, Tracheotomy for breathing, non-verbal, can’t take anything by mouth because he aspirates everything, has a gj feeding tube, is wheelchair bound and I could go on. As you can probably guess, his life is quite challenging for us, his parents & caregivers, not to mention how he feels on the subject. Collin can not communicate without first being prompted. His severe physical limitations prevent him from using sign language & complex augmentative communication devices. He is unable to initiate conversation due to these physical limitations. He CAN however, answer True/False, Multiple Choice & make other choice decisions by using a preprogrammed

    Sorry it cut me off. ……..a number of preprogrammed switch devices. So he can really only respond with whatever We put on the switch. He does cry for pain or unhappiness & laugh at people, jokes etc. I was told that he would never be able to communicate with us. So here’s the deal! He and a buddy from the private special needs school they attend have started a reading program. He knows over 100 sight words, can build simple sentences & pick its correct punctuation. Five years ago Collin was still working with cause & effect. His doctors scarecly believed it. Now here these two boys reading. Not verbally but they are doing it at a 90% accuracy level. They are the first there to read. I just find this mother’s choice as self-centered. She can’t read their futures anymore than she can read her own. I am additionally disgusted by the amount of attention she’s received. Where are the shows with parents like myself and others with the same challenges. Thank You Dr. Phil for allowing this person an entire hour of fame!

    Oh God have mercy on our country.  My heart hurts for our nation, a nation that was once proud to be “under God”.  Now we condone killing unborn babies.  Will we also ok the killing of the disabled and the old??  Where will it stop??  We have embarked on a slippery downward slope.   
    We need to stop this now by first repealing the murder of the unborn. 

    For those of you that have not read “Hitlers Cross” I would strongly suggest it as required reading for all family members.

    Evil is like a fungus. Once it starts growing it spreads and spreads. It doesn’t just stay the same size. Abortion is legalized killing. The boundaries of when you can kill the baby have steadily increased, and will steadily increase. There is no stopping this train if we have audiences who will clap for a ” mom” who wants to euthanize ( how horrific”) her children as if they were unwanted kittens.

    Kryssi, you know what God’s answer is to that? “Occupy till I come”. He wants to come back for a glorious Church, powerful, not hiding and just enduring what comes our way. He wants His Children to make a difference and stand up and take this world back for Him. The most powerful weapon He has given us is prayer. We can pray for our country, our world, our leaders. He told us to do that. Above all pray for God’s Church to stand up and take authority over the evil in this world. He gave us this authority, so why aren’t we using it?

    This is horrific. And it’s not 300,000 that were murdered, in an old book I’m reading on Germany and Hitler, it actually says over 800,000. Although, probably more than that. Glenn needs to tell his Daughter to not get “flu shots” or to be injected with anything. Unfortunately, these practices are sneaky… by the politicians and doctors. I’m currently reading about all this and Hitler and his doctors actually sent out a notice for all parents of deformed and/or retarded children to be put into hospitals because they found “advanced care” – along with other “hopeful words” to get the parents to willfully put their children into these hospitals all over the country. ON PURPOSE, then Hitler and these “doctors” put out a 2 week timeline. After 2 weeks in EVERY HOSPITAL around the country, they injected all the kids to their murders. Then they quietly told each parent that their kid died from pneumonia. Most parents were suspicious but were never told the truth. It started out with sneaky lies. Somehow they made this practice legal. But they lied to everyone about it. Then to move on to MURDERING more people, they used a practice from old Chinese governments (currently reading about this also in a psychology book) called “foot-in-the-door phenomenon” Saying “to get people to agree to something big, “start and build small”…. this book even says how to bring up the murder rate. It’s gross. It’s included in this big text book called “Psychology” by David G. Myers reprinted 1992. It’s overly gross and the government is using all these practices now.

    They call is “euthanize” instead of what it is MURDER, TORTURE, SLAUGHTER. Just like they don’t say “lets eat some dead pig for dinner.” They say “lets eat bacon, ham, and pork.”  Anything that sounds more acceptable to sneak their way into you actually sitting in the audience at the Dr. Phil show and listening to these morons. Dr. Phil, I’m not so keen on.  But this is about adults wanting to murder their children.  I’m sure glad I don’t live in THEIR household. Yuk! But the problem is they will sneak this onto people without their permission and also into the public… knowing the problems they had back in the past with it, learning from it, therefore, today’s creepiness will actually be more “successful.” (to the politicians)They will sneak it to us. Protect your children. Hold their hands at the doctors office and in the hospital.  DO NOT allow anyone (and they will all be smiling) to inject your child with anything! There is no humanity, we must protect each other, unfortunately you can’t trust anyone but yourself… not even a spouse who may fall for this. ~sad.

They’ve committed no crime! They would strictly have them put to death just because they are an inconvenience!

    When your muscles atrophy, it hurts, it’s unreal pain. I know because my legs are slowly doing so.  If that happens to you or someone you know, pray you or they are paralyzed. I’ll tell you, I still have the use of my legs, but if this continues, because I can express my feelings… I’ll most definitely start screaming and writhing in pain and never be able to stop…. Did you see the jaw spasms that poor girl has? Do a little experiment will you?  Do the exact same thing she is doing over and over for a day and multiply that for as long as you live…. I’m hoping I am not coming across as snide or crass, that is not my intention at all.  I may not be able to change your mind on the subject, but I can at least educate you on what is happening to their bodies and tell you what kind of pain is involved…..

    My left arm is atrophying due to a car wreck from two years ago. Yeah, it hurts and it hurts bad. It is now about half the size of the other arm due to nerve damage from the wreck I was in. And the doctor has warned me I might lose the use of the arm eventually if I do not get the nerve damage corrected, and because of osteoporsis, I cannot get the surgery for at least a year. I still do not feel like I would rather be “put down” nor do I think that would justify killing someone else. I do not scream, nor do I take narcotics. I have had ten surgeries on my back since injuring it in the Army in 1970, and I was warned I would have pain all my life, get used to it. You CAN live your life with pain, without feeling a need to kill yourself, and knowing your attitude, I would not trust your judgement around any sick or badly injured relatives or around me if I got worse and was in the hospital. You sound like you would not be someone I would wish to have power or attorney to decide when it was time to “pull the plug,” as you would put your values on “quality of life” over mine on living.

    I am a 49 year old mother of two wonderful young men with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  My oldest son Theodore, who will turn 29 on May 16th.  He has been dependent on a Ventilator to breath since he was 14 years old.  Due to severe scoliosis he has been confined to a hospital bed since Nivember of 2005.  His brother Nathaniel is 22.  He sleeps with a bi-pap at night and is still able to get up in his wheel chair.  I was told there life expectancy was late teens to early twenties.  Words can not express how greatful I am to still have them with me.  I have cared for them at home there entire lives.  I became a nurse to be able to care for there complex needs at home and to try to give them the extras that government assistance does not provide.  Both of these young men are very positive and full of compliments to everyone they meet.  Both of these young men want to live as long as they can.  They have a light about them and touch everyone they meet with there positive outlook and there smiles.  Theodore likes to say “Always blessings, never losses.  I cannot comprehend a mother wanting to kill her children.  Nor can I comprehend how all but 3 people in Dr Phil’s audience would agree with the mother.  I did not see this episode of Dr. Phil.  I just wanted to tell you about our lives and that I hope anyone who viewed that particular episode and agree with the mothers wishes to  kill her children will reconsider and think of thes children as gifts from God and look at the people they have touched instead of viewing them as burdens.  I believe the mother is trying to rationalize killing her children by saying that they would chose suicide if they could.  She does’nt have a clue!!!

    My son Daniel is now 18, who is nonverbal with severe cerebral palsy. Before age of 3, even many professionals suspected that he couldn’t see, hear, or feels; because he wasn’t able to response. When he was in 11th grade, his IEP teams (special education team) evaluated him with an IQ of an infant. Throughout his public school years, his school’s therapists only see him 1 time per week for just a few minutes. While he was able to stand and walk in specialized medical equipment; his public school stopped him from all physical activities when he was in middle school. Four years prior to his full spinal fusion (age 14), his orthopedic surgeon who has been Daniel’s doctor since age 1, refused to write a prescription for a full body brace (TLSO) and an electric wheelchair for Daniel to drive, this doctor told me that Daniel could never drive and that I should prepare Daniel to “let nature take its course”.
    However he was willing to get Daniel a manual wheelchair with custom made cushion to form to his scoliosis deformities; therefore, I obtained a second option, now Daniel can drive a standing power wheelchair and know his way around different places. If Daniel’s parents didn’t take the time to teach Daniel to drive, to acquire necessary medical intervention, and to give him the cares that he needed to enable him to learn; others might continue to assume he can’t see, hear, or feel, since he can’t talk for himself. Daniel does have very much physical deformity and able to sit upright, because his parents provided him with close supervision, help him put on his braces, and teach him life skills.

    This mom only see her disabled children couple times a month and claimed she know what these children are thinking? When was the last time she actually took care of them? The court should revoke her guardianship; since she is not acting on behave of their best interest.

    You can learn more about my son’s challenges on YouTube and Facebook. I made videos documentary of Daniel just for situation like this on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/walkingdan or message me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WalkingDaniel

    Do they truly think that these kids are enjoying their life? I am willing to bet they can’t even scratch an itch, tell anyone when they are hungry or what they want to eat or watch or listen to or anything- let them die peacefully and go one with their life…All of you who say no because it is murder because God gives and takes life, why would you prefer them to suffer here than to go one and live peacefully with their heavenly father? I don’t understand this. I am not saying God would want you to kill them- I am saying it is quite possibly the lesser of two evils. And starving and dehydrating them to death- this country is ass backwards! I don’t understand how that is legal and giving them a peaceful death is not.

    I’m 30 and want to be put down. I’m mentally disabled, not enough for the state to care for me, but enough that I can’t even find a job. Do you have any idea the trauma I’m inflicted with -daily-? My parents are forced to take care of me, and the programs set in place to help me either refuse to help me or say I don’t have the right disability to get their help. I’m literally trapped being a burden on my family. If tomorrow the government said “We’re paying for anyone who wants to be put down.” I’d be the first one in line because I -know- my family’s life would be easier, and I spend every day of my life waiting to die in such agonizing pain physically from the mental stress and pain I’m in. How is it fair to me to keep me in this state? What did I do to ya’ll that deserves this kind of hellish situation? And I’m not alone. There’s plenty of people just like me out there. I don’t put myself down because I have an insurance policy they’ll get nothing if I put myself down which will add even more burden they can’t afford.

    You are a sick sadistic person SunshinelQ. Reread what I said now put what you just said into context. This isn’t just despair talking this is real life. And Don’t ever assume you know me. I believe in God, I’ve never -STOPPED- believing in God. Now lets show you exactly how you are a sick sadistic person.

    You just told me in not so many words that I’m supposed to be suffering, I’m supposed to sink my parents financially. Lets have a deal I want you to quit all your medications, all of them for say a year. If you can survive a year without any medications, no psychiatrist, no doctor except in life threatening emergencies and only to stabilize yourself. Quit your job and live only on what other people will give you. It has to be only what they themselves have meaning you’ll have to live with someone else. Provide no viable assistance, just sit there in pain for a year. Then you can tell me to see the light. I guarantee you won’t do it.

    I may be ignorant of your situation but I’m not a sick and sadistic person (according to you) implying that you’re “supposed to be suffering,” and that I want you to “sink (your) parents financially.” Like you said “this is real life.” We all get various deals in life.
    You have parents? My father died after an 18-month-illness (maybe bit by a spider) at age 40 when I was 12. I was the oldest of 5. My youngest sibling was 3. I never realized we were poor (we just didn’t have anything) until in recent years when the media faun over so many “victims of whatever.” Some get much worse deals than others. I’m reading from your words that God isn’t enough.
    Research the stages in dying. (Okay, you probably already know.) One day I know I will have to face “dying.” I have experienced the “prospect” of it. None of us escape dying. I pray (nothing implied to your situation) my anger and despair will be shorter than the acceptance of dying. If you’re in pain, death btw is when doctors CANNOT or won’t provide the medications, surgeries, etc necessary to sustain life. And yes, in real life there is a cost for what they can provide.
    I had an aunt who in October discovered she had cancer and refused radiation and chemo.  She told me she had a good life and was ready to go. I wasn’t ready but she was. She’s passed. She was 73. Again, nothing implied to your situation. You have a cross to bear. I’m sorry.
