Something to think about…while you’re still able

The culture of death is alive and well at the Netherlands’ Life End Clinic —- aided by a judicial order that a dementia patient be euthanized by lethal injection in accordance with her family’s wishes.

But it’s not just the judiciary that views less than perfect life with such blatant disregard.

A majority —- 52 percent —- of Dutch doctors who perform euthanasia say they would euthanize dementia patients.

Not to miss a trick, the facility thoughtfully includes a mobile service for those who prefer the patient die at home.

According to the Ministry of Justice Termination of Life on Request and Assisted Suicide (Review Procedures) Act in Practice, Question 14:

“A doctor’s main duty is indeed to preserve life. In the case of euthanasia a doctor’s duties conflict: on the one hand, doctors have a duty to do all they can to keep the patient alive. On the other hand, they have a duty to relieve the patient’s suffering.”

    Europeans are so enlightened. In the formerly religious country of Ireland, they authorize same sex marriages. In the Netherlands, they are fine with euthanasia.

    But we’re catching up at breakneck speed. The killing goes by euphemistic names such as , “dying with dignity,” “the right to die,” or “choosing a gentle death.” Montana, Oregon, Washington state and Vermont have passed legislation legalizing the practice for those 18 and older.

    Having to deal with sick relatives is uncomfortable and can be costly. Crisping euthanized Mom in the cheap fire pit of cremation is a much more effective option. She gave you life and you give her death. One for one. Besides, if she could, you just know she’d understand.

    What puzzles me is the fact that killing innocents is easy enough, but finding the “right drugs” to execute hardcore murderers who have been sentenced to death is difficult.

    It’s a slippery slope. Abortion, taking the life of preborn humans, is widespread. Legalized killing of the sick, elderly or those considered defective is the obvious next step.

    Just as important:

    How can these planes be purchased without the Governor’s signature:

      “Just as important“? Are you kidding? In the scheme of things, where do you place the value of life? Putting things in perspective, it’s important to remember that airplanes are THINGS.

      Are your individual relatives worth a Cessna, a Jaguar or a million dollars? More? Less? How about an extended trip to your favorite destination in exchange for never seeing Gramps again? Sounds like an offer you‘d jump at.

      WHAT??
      Your “comment’ is not worthy of more of a response than that.

    • Orion says:

      SmallGovt is nothing more than an antagonistic and resentful leftwing troll masquerading as one concerned about government spending. Begrudging earned benefits and knocking conservative candidates is his stock in trade. Now he demeans life, asserting that government spending on airplanes as “just as important” as the systematic practice of killing the undesirable. He would have risen to the top in the Third Reich.
