Suppressing the evidence for self-evident truths
“WE hold these truths to be self-evident…”
By Brian Johnston
The Right to Life is asserted as an observable, self-evident fact. “The laws of nature and of nature’s God” are to be seen in the objective reality of unique human lives.
The purpose of the Right to Life movement is to show forth those self-evident facts of human life, and to assure the protections of government for those lives. We do not assert our personal faith or idiosyncratic beliefs regarding those lives, we simply show the self-evident uniqueness of the individual. According to America’s founders, the just powers of all governments is derived from the intrinsic value and worth of the lives governed. The ‘power over lives’ is directly related to recognizing the value and uniqueness of those lives.
On Nov 10, 2016, the French Supreme Counsel shocked caring people world-wide, when they ruled that the mere image of a Down’s syndrome child could not be broadcast on national television. The smiling images were part of a campaign by the Down’s Syndrome Association, ‘Dear Future Mom,’ it showed the hope and joy of Down’s syndrome individuals.
The State Counsel said that allowing people with Down’s syndrome to smile on television was “inappropriate” because it was “likely to disturb the conscience of women who had lawfully made different personal life choices”. Note that the High Court has ruled ending the life of a Down’s child is not to be considered ‘inappropriate,’ but the true offense against humanity is the showing images of those joyful children.
In our movement the most difficult challenge is not merely the opposition of those who disagree, but the imperious use of government authority to suppress and dismiss the ‘self evident’ nature of the Right to Life, of the value and significance of each life, even the seemingly insignificant life. For Government to war against ‘self-evident’ truths, it must first commit itself to suppressing the evidence. In France, 96% of Down’s children are ‘eliminated’ via abortion.

Re: URGENT emails and phone calls needed to the American Medical Association (AMA) over next several weeks
Date: September 15, 2016
There is an effort currently underway within the American Medical Association (AMA) to abandon its decades-long position opposing assisted suicide and take a neutral stance. At its July 2017 annual meeting, the AMA will consider taking a “neutral” position which essentially sends a green light to the states that legalizing is acceptable. However, we have recently been made aware that the AMA will hold an interim meeting on November 13 and 14 in Orlando where a special breakout session will be held on assisted suicide.
Both the national and state medical societies’ opposition to doctor-prescribed suicide have been instrumental in stopping the spread of these dangerous laws. In fact, when the Vermont and California medical societies took neutral positions, it was devastating to the efforts in the legislature to block legalization. Assisting suicide is now legal in Oregon, Washington, Vermont, and California, and the practice may have some legal protection in the state of Montana.
We are asking the following things:
1. Please have your members contact one or both contacts below via phone or email.
2. Please restrict arguments to the suggested bullet points, in the person’s own words.
3. Speak with any physicians you know and urge them contact the AMA.
4. Ask for a written response/ report any information received back to NRLC.
1. Who to contact:
Dr. Andrew W. Gurman, MD, AMA President, email@example.com
330 N Wabash, Ste 43482
Chicago IL 60611-5885
Bette Crigger, PhD, CEJA’s Secretary, firstname.lastname@example.org
Secretary, Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs
American Medical Association
330 N Wabash, Ste 43482
Chicago IL 60611-5885
Based on both polling and the positive experience of many states fighting these assisted suicide laws, please try and restrict your arguments to one or two of the following:
2. What to Say:
(Select one or more of the following statements and re-word or add your own thoughts.)
The AMA should retain its longstanding position in opposition to the legalization of assisted suicide because:
· Medical professionals should focus on providing care and comfort to patients – NOT becoming a source of lethal drugs. I would not want my doctor to have this power and suggest suicide to me as an “option.”
· Will the government and insurance companies do the right thing – pay for treatment costing thousands of dollars – or the cheap thing – pay for lethal drugs costing hundreds of dollars?
· Everyone knows someone who has been misdiagnosed or outlived a terminal diagnosis.
· Wanting to die because of depression is treatable. Millions of people are living proof.
· Everyone agrees that dying in pain is unacceptable, however nearly all pain is now treatable. A patient in pain should find a new doctor.
· Oregon is proof that general suicides rise dramatically once assisted suicide is promoted as a “good.”
· My family member could die from taking lethal drugs and I wouldn’t know about it until he/she is dead because no family notification is required in advance.
· Assisted suicide is a recipe for elder and disability abuse because it can put lethal drugs in the hands of abusers.
· A relative who is an heir to the patient’s estate or an abusive caregiver can pick up the lethal drugs and administer them without the patient’s knowledge or consent. There is no oversight and no witnesses are required once the lethal drugs leave the pharmacy
