Help me locate Sister Helen Prejean: January 12, 2013 email

To this email, I did not receive even an automated response.

Dear Sister Prejean,
With the recent setback on ending the death penalty in California by initiative, my approach to stopping the enforcement of the death penalty needs to be urgently evaluated. As far as i can determine, this approach of showing the courts that the education of the board Certified Forensic Psychiatrists actually leaves them disqualified under the Americans with Disabilities Act right to experts both competent and experienced has never been tried. Since their education lacks exposure to key areas of medicine, such as sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea, possibly all pending death penalty cases could be placed on hold. Faced with lawsuits over the failure of state licensing boards to have determined the competency of these experts and having depended on a private entity (Boards of medicine specialties are privately owned), many states may choose simply to negate the issue and outlaw the death penalty. I believe that the small business lobby could be recruited to help this effort since it can be shown that there is a cost of mis-educating all physicians that is borne by those purchasing health insurance which is dramatically influenced by physicians’ failure to make accurate diagnoses on a timely basis, thus resulting in the use of drugs with dramatic side effects and repeat hospitalizations.
I await your response patiently.
sincerely,
Cynthia Jeanne Lee MD

Dear Sister Prejean,

I wish to bring to your attention a tactic that I have not seen utilized to halt the use of the death penalty. It may be used to quickly stop the death penalty in all jurisdictions.

I became aware of this issue as a physician experienced in sleep disorders experiencing silencing by the medical board of Texas. Their “expert”, board certified in forensic psychiatry, admitted that she “knew almost nothing about sleep apnea”. I began wondering how a physician without experience in medical disorders could render judgement on a person affected by both oxygen and sleep deprivation. Furthermore, there are numerous other medical disorders that are not adequately covered (or, in some cases, not covered at all in advanced psychiatric texts)  so that the physician so instructed would never even suspect the accurate diagnosis. Among these are periodic limb movement disorder and mild to moderate hepatic encephalopathy ( short of being comatose). The amount of research that is pertinent to understanding human behavior from organ dysfunction that never makes it into prominent textbooks is truly amazing.

Sister, while some attorneys, even specialized in criminal law, believe the Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply to their clients, I do not believe that this attitude would prevail. Certainly, all mitigating factors, including medial diagnoses that affect judgement and reasoning, have to be presented to the court before a death penalty can be meted out. The fact that physicians licensed by states, on the word from a private entity like a medial specialty board, often controlled by pharmaceutical interests, but with crucial information redacted from their education, have been allowed to be presented to the courts as experts “competent and experienced” is surely a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I would have personally tested this issue in federal court except for the fact I was stalked out of Texas while attempting to make such an effort.

I would like to initiate this dialogue with you hoping to network with individuals who could effect this change. While I believe that humans do not have the right to cause another human’s death, especially under government fiat, the above tactic make be able to stop death penalties from being effected until human culture can evolve to where it needs to be this to be fully accepted. If you would like to send my information on, please do so and feel free to clarify my wording with additional comments.

Hoping to hear from you at your earliest convenience,

Cynthia Jeanne Lee MD
