Posted on 10/12/2012 5:32:15 PM PDT by wagglebee
An international industry of sorts has been established to help people commit suicide. The relatives of a recent victim has pushed back in the Telegraph. From the story:
A woman suffering from multiple sclerosis took a fatal overdose after a suicide website sent an advocate to her care home to discuss euthanasia.Wheelchair-bound Anne Veasey, 71, died at the nursing home where she lived on August 1 last year after she overdosed on pentobarbital she had bought on the internet. An inquest heard that Mrs Veaseys health had been deteriorating, she had money worries and had been diagnosed with depression.
The court was told she had met with someone from pro-choice website Exit International six weeks before taking her own life with the drugs she bought online from China. The website was founded by Dr Philip Nitschke, the assisted suicide campaigner who has been dubbed Dr Death for holding workshops demonstrating chilling suicide methods including a helium-filled exit bag and DIY Peaceful Pills.
Nitschke infamously told Kathryn Lopez in an NRO interview that he supported assisted suicide for troubled teens.
Please realize that this isnt the fringe. Throughout the world we see assisted suicide promoted via a two-pronged strategy: First, legalize it for the terminal or hopelessly ill. Second, have pro suicide counselors help those not legally qualified do themselves in. It is an abandonment of despairing people at its most profoundall the more disturbing because the ghoulishness puts on the mask of compassion.
And under Obamacare it will become the norm.

In actuality, homeboy did NOT title his article with his name.
That would be colossally arrogant.
So you were arrogant for him... on his behalf?
Whichever, you altered the title and furthered fawning over a mere human.
I hates me some fawning.
No, I annotated the author's name to the title, the title itself remains unchanged.
Because his name wouldn’t have been prominent enough otherwise.
Isn’t there a scriptural warning against sucking-up and glorifying folks like that?
Hmmm... which one is that?
The is no problem with the addition of the author’s name to the title.
It’s helpful to those that like to read a certain author’s writings.
I agree. Would you be so kind as to repeat yourself to whoever had it removed from the title?
Things have sure gotten strange around here.
Thanks for the heads up.
The Stealth Rogue Mod must be lurking in the background...
Yes, it will. The new normal is eliminated choices...FORCED mandates. Obamacare will spawn thousands of Jack Kervorkians and hundreds (if not thousands) of Josef Mengeles.
TREASON to "free" people.
