When it comes to committing “assisted suicide”, these DemocRATS need to start leading by example.
Soylent green is people!
Satire now, but just wait a year or two................
Ha ha ha.
Look for the government to force hospitals that are affiliated with the Catholic church to provide euthanasia.
Well, it would mitigate the Medicare Unfunded Liabilities problem...
Despite the anecdotal consensus that this is a “life” issue, good guys vs. bad guys ... I think a true conservative/libertarian position has a little more nuance.
I can imagine there being a point at which I can rationally and peacefully decide that it is my time to go, after my body has utterly betrayed me but before I’m dead.
I do not want government to make any decisions in this matter but nor do I want anyone who might carry out my stated and clear wishes to be prosecuted.
an assisted suicide bill calling it a crucial element of a successful implementation of Obamacare.
Is this really a surprise for any non-demonic possessed conservative?
Save money. Kill the sick.
After you, Gov.
It’s not suicide if you had helped. The medical community needs to be kept as far away from killing people on purpose as possible.
Soylent Green is people but their skin makes an excellent alternative to pork rinds.
I support is now for all Democrats and liberals including RINOs.
I have a terminal illness. When GOD chooses to take me home it will be with dignity, and I won’t be helping him along.
Colorado governor Lamm ran for Governor of Colorado in 1974 on a platform to limit growth, and was elected. Reacting to the high cost of campaigning, he had walked the state in his campaign.
One of his acts as governor was designating musician John Denver as the Poet Laureate of Colorado.
As candidate and then governor, Lamm promised for environmental reasons to "drive a silver stake" through plans to build Interstate 470, a proposed circumferential highway around the southwest part of the Denver Metropolitan Area. However, continued development in the area led to increased congestion on surface streets, and the highway was later built, largely with state funds, as Colorado State Highway 470.
In 1984, his outspoken statements in support of physician-assisted suicide generated some controversy, specifically over his use of the phrase "we have a duty to die." Lamm later explained that he "was essentially raising a general statement about the human condition, not beating up on the elderly," and that the exact phrasing in the speech was "We've got a duty to die and get out of the way with all of our machines and artificial hearts and everything else like that and let the other society, our kids, build a reasonable life."  His dire predictions for the future of social security and health care ("duty to die") earned him the nickname "Governor Gloom".
Lamm was elected Colorado governor three times. When he left office in 1987 after three terms and twelve years in the office, he was the longest-serving governor in state history (his successor, Roy Romer, matched this record).
