Pat Robertson Criticizes Terminally Ill Woman Brittany Maynard (Video)


Brittany Maynard, who suffers from terminal brain cancer, has decided to end her life via physician-assisted suicide on Nov. 1.

Maynard, 29, was told by her doctors in April that she had six months to live.

"I quickly decided that death with dignity was the best option for me and my family," Maynard wrote in an op-ed article for "We had to uproot from California to Oregon, because Oregon is one of only five states where death with dignity is authorized."

"My dream is that every terminally ill American has access to the choice to die on their own terms with dignity," Maynard recently wrote on her website.

However, Pat Robertson slammed Maynard and those who support her right to die with dignity on the "700 Club" today (video below).

Robertson offered no medical facts about Maynard's condition, but insisted she not be allowed to die on her terms, noted

"It's amazing that the so-called liberals are a culture of death, they want to kill babies, they want to kill the terminally ill, they don’t seem to honor life,” claimed Robertson.

"What we should do is honor life and not hasten death," lectured Robertson, who opposes Obamacare, which provides health coverage to ten million Americans.

Robertson trivialized Maynard's dire situation by claiming that people who are "hurting" will be given a pill to end their life because they will run up "huge bills."

"I really believe we ought to leave some of these things in God's hands," stated Robertson. "He knows what to do with them."

However, if Maynard were to allow the brain cancer to continue and become brain dead, her body could be kept "alive" by modern technology as other people have been, notes Live Science.

Robertson's co-host claimed, "If you're alive, there's still hope. There's always hope and so she's still young and we don't know what God could do."

“She has brain cancer, but brain cancer can get healed, God can heal anything," added Robertson.

His co-host stated, "I have a good friend who recovered from brain cancer that they didn't think she would recover. If [Maynard] is listening I hope she will choose life."

Maynard has a terminal condition and has no real "choice" to choose life, but has chosen to pass away in her sleep after receiving an injection.
