Convicted Murderer claims he may run for Michigan Congressional Seat
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 13, 2008 – In response to an announcement that Dr. Death, Jack Kevorkian, intends to run for Congress, Judie Brown, president of American Life League issued the following statement:
Kevorkian is the poster boy for the pro-euthanasia movement in the United States. His outrageous actions made it socially acceptable for less controversial killings, such as that perpetrated on Terri Schiavo, to take place. As many of us know, it took several tries for a jury in the state of Michigan to find the man guilty of a crime. He took more than 130 lives. It was only because Kevorkian used the major media to publicize one of those killings that a jury finally took the matter seriously. That in itself is hard to believe, but we monitored his actions for all those years and realize that many people were in complete sympathy with his deadly activities.
Subsequently Kevorkian has become a nationally known figure, but I have to be perfectly honest. It is hard for me to believe that there are enough people in the state of Michigan who would provide credibility to Kevorkian’s most recent ridiculous announcement. However, we do live in a culture of death and therefore we will be monitoring coming events very carefully. After all, there are already many members of Congress who support killing innocent children in the womb, so nothing should surprise us.
American Life League was co-founded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and it is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to death.
