Is Terri Schindler-Schiavo a Test Case for Culture of Death Activist George Felos?

It seems that George Felos, the Florida lawyer spearheading the drive to kill Terri via judicial fiat, is a nationally known "right-to-die" activist and New Age pagan intent upon establishing legalized euthanasia in his state as well as all over the USA, his repeated denials of such intentions notwithstanding. (Actions speak louder than rhetoric, Herr Felos.)

The evidence? A book Felos wrote last year titled Litigation As Spiritual Practice

According to the publisher's blurb on this book --described as "the excitement and drama of the courtroom, and the ecstasy and anguish of spiritual evolution in a combative environment"-- Felos "became the legal advocate of Estelle Browning's right-to-die and in the process plumbed the depths of death and dying and spearheaded a social revolution to enable death with dignity in the state of Florida. Felos uses this case and Fellouzis vs. United States of America --a decade-long tax battle sending him to Hong Kong's back alleys in search of antique jades and ivories-- as framework to interweave the story of his law practice and spiritual unfoldment."

Apparently what is meant by "spiritual unfoldment" is discovering the "right" of neo-Nazi* Culture of Death New Agers to do away with "useless eaters."

Sieg Heil, Herr Felos.

*(EDITOR'S NOTE: By "neo-Nazi" we mean, of course, not that an individual or group so named is necessarily Neo-Nazi in any formal sense, but rather that such has adopted any attitude or theory which is identifiably Nazi in origin. In this case, i.e., the philosophical relationship between euthanasia and the so-called "right-to-die," please see the article Euthanasia in the Third Reich: Lessons for Today?, first published in Volume 18:1 of Ethics & Medicine.)
