STATEMENT FROM JUDY SNOW FEBRUARY 1980
Nobody can say I haven’t tried to get assistance (see file of letters and teIephone caIIs made). I am now at the point where there are not ·more “regular channels”. ‘ I can’t afford more years .of being polite. In desperation and frustration, I have finally decided it is time to let people know how unjust and cruel the system is and how wiIIing some people are to let me die.
