This is the entirety of my post to which I received an obnoxious reply making me out to be a genocidal Nazi:
“Everyone should be allowed to decide for themselves whether they want to continue living.
The more relevant question of this article is whether anyone has the right to make virtual slaves of strangers to prolong their own life. Can you demand healthcare that you have no way of paying for, knowing that it will lower the quality of life for hundreds of other people ? Isnt that what is really happening when the government must tax hundreds of other people thousands of dollars each to pay for $500,000 of longterm nursing care for a comatose octogenarian ?”
NOWHERE in this post did I suggest euthanizing anyone. I posed a simple question as to the morality of people being FORCED to pay for the medical care of others. And for this I deserved to be called a Nazi who would euthanize people with “hereditary defects” ?
Bykr Bayb could have replied to me with a civil, reasoned argument ... but instead chose to post me an inflammatory picture essentially calling me a Nazi. It was outrageously insulting.
Anyone who has read my posts over the last 7 years knows I am very much pro-life. I consider abortion to be murder and always have. It was actually my tagline for years. I also think “euthanasia” is quite different from refusing to pay somebody else’s hospital bills. My first sentence was that people should live as long as they want. Maybe we disagree on that, but I don’t think that justifies calling me a Nazi.
