Dr. Anna Pou on 60 Minutes

The Attorney General sounds pretty ignorant to me during the piece. Dr. Pou responds:

Asked if she murdered those patients, as the attorney general alleges, she says, “No, I did not murder those patients. Mr. Safer, I’ve spent my entire life taking care of patients. I have no history of doing anything other than good for my patients. I do the best of my ability. Why would I suddenly start murdering people? This doesn’t make sense.”

She also says she is just not capable of any sort of mercy killing.

I do not believe in euthanasia. I don’t think that it’s anyone’s decision to make when a patient dies,” Dr. Pou explains. “However, what I do believe in is comfort care. And that means that we ensure that they do not suffer pain.”

This blog has provided extensive coverage on the issue, and subsequently (thanks to Google) I have received many emails in support of Dr. Pou. Her official site can be found here.

Also, please visit the official site of the Memorial nurses, Cheri Landry and Lori Budo.

    Dr pou treated me in galveston
    in 2003 for esphogus striture
    caused from radiation. we did not
    have ins or money at that time, but
    that didnt matter to her. she gave
    us the same consideration and
    kindness as any one who had money.
    she went over and beyond to help
    me and anyone who says she is a
    murder don,t know what they are
    talking about. This is probably
    all about money and how much they
    can get out of her.
