President of the United States

Dear Mr. President,

On behalf of the American TFP, I commend you for Attorney General Ashcroft’s decision yesterday to reinstate the DEA’s original determination under the Controlled Substances Act that the prescription and use of federally controlled drugs for assisted suicide is not a “legitimate medical purpose.”

You are confronted with the arduous task of having to fend off with one hand the most serious threats to our nation’s very survival, while attempting with the other to instill renewed vigor and life into its moral fibers. Yesterday’s decision certainly focused on this second responsibility. By reversing the Clinton administration’s position in this matter, Attorney General Ashcroft sent the welcome signal that it is the duty of government to uphold the natural moral order. His decision was an opportune reminder that government’s sole purpose under Natural Law is the common good of its people, and that this good is not found without morality and ethics.

I hope and pray that your administration’s good example in this matter will inspire similar courage throughout our nation’s political leadership.

With my best wishes, and heartfelt gratitude.

Sincerely yours,

The Honorable John Ashcroft

Attorney General of the United States
Office of the Attorney General

Washington, D.C. 20530-0001

Dear Mr. Ashcroft:

On behalf of the American TFP, I commend you for yesterday’s decision reversing the Clinton administration’s misguided opinion that permitted the use of federally controlled drugs in assisted suicide.

Natural law establishes that the purpose of government is the common good of its people. This good, however, is not found without ethics and morality. Your decision to reinstate the DEA’s original interpretation of the Controlled Substances Act is a welcome signal that the Bush administration will not be a partner in a practice that dishonors the medical profession, undermines society, and violates the natural order.

With my best wishes, and heartfelt gratitude.

Sincerely yours,

Raymond E. Drake
President
