Open Letter to HHS

This is a copy of the email ‘submission’ I sent today, as a Registered Nurse to Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt who asked for public feedback on whether MD’s and RN’s should be allowed to opt out of medical events that violate their conscience. I urge you also to reply to this public request for making your voices heard on health care that gives true health and life and does not kill. Info on how to do that at the end of this letter:

To Mike Leavitt, Health and Human Services, US

Sir, I am opposed to the US government demanding that licensed health care
providers participate in any form of killing whether that includes prescribing
abortifacients [ some so-called ‘contraceptives’] assisting with abortion,
administering drugs that kill, withholding food and water and life-giving care, or
smothering them, or placing them in a metal tray to die alone, or starving them, or
shredding them or gassing them, or any method known to any diabolical mind, or
being complicent with those deeds in any whatsoever. I am a Registered Nurse of
many years and I adhere to the Commandments of GOD particularly the ‘thou
shalt not kill’ Commandment.

Furthermore, I believe it is not the duty of the US government to ever license
medical assassins. Nor is it the duty of the US government to implement public
laws that depopulate the nation.  Furthermore when the word gets out that certain
states have hospitals that do perform such evil killing events, their population will
eventually learn of that through the grapevine and they will have no customers
except those seeking death. Is that the kind of ‘health care’ you envision–kill ’em
and burn ’em? [many cities now have crematoriums much as existed in Nazi
Germany]. It sickens me to think of the US becoming that type of nation, and I
ask you to oppose such with all your heart and ability.
  When a nation, any nation legalizes killing, it becomes a ‘convenient’ method of
legally disposing of those who annoy you. Remember again the Nazi German
medical ranks that assigned Jews to death until a brave 100 member group of
Doctors said “NO” we will not participate in this; and some of them went to prison
because of it. But it turned the tide because the world’s attention became focused
on the testimony of the medical doctors of conscience and courage.
  Please I beg you Sir, allow medical doctors and nurses to opt out of any event
that involves killing.
