OrÂ killing, in other words. No matter how the assisted suicide people play with semantics, they’re ending lives. And feeling good about it.
Take ‘Reverend Death,’ for example.
A well-known assisted suicide activist is making plans to open a â€œright-to-dieâ€ hospice in Gastonia. The Rev. George Exoo says he wants to help terminally ill people end their lives in a quick and painless manner but some in the medical community are concerned about his plans.
“I think it’s the reason I’m placed on this planet,” Exoo told a film crew in the documentary â€œReverend Death.â€
Over the years, Exoo says he’s directly helped more than 100 people end their lives. He’s assisted an additional 20 over the phone…
“I have a heart and a passion for those people, and so reaching out to them may be in the spirit of the Good Samaritan. That’s why I do this,â€ he said.
This isÂ sinister andÂ seriously misguided, and we need to tighten up laws to protect the vulnerable against such predators. Call things what they are.
