Kathryn Tucker Out at Compassion and Choices?

by Wesley J. Smith

It is always a good idea to keep an eye on the death pushers at The Hemlock Society Compassion and Choices. Apparently, there has been a big change without formal announcement. Kathryn Tucker, the legal director who brought the case in 1997 unsuccessfully (9-0) seeking an assisted suicide Roe. V. Wade, has poof disappeared from any mention on the C & C Website.

A new legal director, formerly of the ACLU (of course) has been named. 

Most curious. One would think that someone who has given nearly 20 years to the assisted suicide cause would rate a tribute as she made her exit. Or, if something awful had befallen her–I hope not–that some mention would be made.

But from what I can tell, C & C has kept radio silence on Tucker’’s leaving and why. Oh well. I hope they gave her a gold watch.
