It's only a matter of time

Voluntary euthanasia is an issue which is not going away. Lesley Martin is still very busy and you can read about her activities here. I'm not sure she is the right person for the job. But I was pleased to see Peter Brown's Death with Dignity Bill is back in the ballot box.

Yes, with the aging populiation we certainly will need a bill to allow people to ehh, 'retire' with dignity. Completely voluntary of course. Bills like these don't have any unintended consequences.

I agree wit BDB. Time my parents got the chance to leave with dignity. I really need to pay my mortgage off, buy a new car and have a holida.

Here we have the mindsetof the socialists of the soul,who thinking they have a right to determine for others what they should do with their lives...and even their deaths,spout the tired old crap about there being a free for all kill fest of old people if VOLUNTARY euthanisa comes to pass.Based on their faith in some ghost in the sky that runs things (and never asking why the ghost gets off on having people suffer in agony waiting to die ) they smugly assert that people are all homocidal leechs just waiting to pull the plug on their nearset and dearest given the chance...what a low sad strata of thought they represent.
