Help me locate Sister Helen Prejean: she doesn’t respond to my emails

First, a copy of an email received July 10, 2012 in response to my email sent July 3rd

Then the technical details for this email

 

A separate post will have the August 29, 2012 email and a 3rd post will have the january 12, 2013 email which never received any response

Of course, Sister Prejean does not have to answer me…however, the death sentence keeps getting applied…and ..one would think…?

 

Dear Dr. Lee,

 

Sr. Helen is in seclusion working on another book at this time.  She will return to the office for the week of July 22 and I will give her your email then.

 

Thank you,

Carolyn Clulee

Office Asst.

Subject: Using the ADA requirements for an expert competent and experienced to halt use of death penalty

 

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
