Thanks Jeff for posting the broadcast. I just finished listening.
I have a few questions:
Is Lawrence w/his family now? He is DF because he signed for blood for his daughter, but I was wondering what happened w/him and the rest of his family.
Who made the choice of using arsenic for Bethany's treatment at the end? I remember when they used laetrile treatments for cancer back in the ' 70s and ' 80s from Tijuana, MX. Many JWs went there w/no success. We had a few from our cong. who also went there. Why didn't the WT lawyers and Liaison Committee push for using the latest approved methods w/blood products?
It is like David up against Goliath. Goliath in this case being the WTS. Bethany had 20 lawyers from the WT Society. Her mom didn't have to pay whereas Lawrence could not possibly keep up w/his lawyer's fees and his lawyer could hardly keep up w/the bombardment of correspondence from the 20 WT lawyers. So he had to represent himself.
And not only did they have 20 lawyers who had the advantage of attorney/client privilege, but also the liaison committee w/clergy privilege surrounding Bethany w/the social worker sitting in the corner keeping an eye on the whole ordeal to make sure that Bethany's rights were followed. But they still managed to take her away from the hospital and keep her hidden. Unbelievable!! And then knowingly inform Dad about her impending death an hour before whereas they knew it would take him 3 hours of driving time to reach the hospital.
So this father never had the opportunity to say "good-bye" to his daughter.
I hope others will listen to the broadcast; it opens your eyes to specific atrocities that are going on in this organization which claims to be directed by God.
