Dear Editor,

The article, “The Long and Short of Managed Care,” by Dr. Vernon L. Goltry is superb. There is no question everything he says is accurate. I am going to make copies of the article and pass them out to patients, since they are the ones who should know about this information.

The editorial, “Report on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Turning Point Project,” by Dr. Lawrence Huntoon tells the story the way it should be told. There is no question in many of these studies that are performed, that these so-called research projects, are designed and funded when the decisions have already been made, and these projects are only there to further certify what they want us to do.

I had this experience when I was one of three members of the Ear, Nose, & Throat Specialty appointed to the RVR-RBS study that was conducted by the Public Health Unit at Harvard University. There was no question that the decisions had already been made and we were being used to certify what they wanted to do. I tried to organize my specialty and others who I met with to do something about this before it happened, and no one would participate. In fact, I was labeled as some sort of a “nut case.”

I commend Dr. Huntoon for his editorial, and I hope more people read it and pay attention to it.

Your article entitled, “Euthanasia, Medical Science, and the Road to Genocide,” is most interesting. It gives the background of all that has gone on in our world, including all the terrible things that happened in Nazi Germany. I commend you for your excellent report. I also look forward to reading those books you have written.

Kindest personal regards,
