When a family was away from a grandmother recovering from an injury, American killers tried to convince her to choose suicide.
These American killers were (and are?) active in Vermont. That’s because this happened a few years ago:
The governor signed the bill.
So we have a bill that legalizes suicide and we have a horrible government medical system that supposedly depends on getting enough young, healthy people to pay inflated prices for health care so that they can subsidize the elderly. Obamacare is failing in many ways (or succeeding if that was the design all along), but one of the main problems is that the young and healthy are staying away from it.
Well if the government can’t salvage Obamacare by increasing enrollment among millennials, maybe they can reduce the number of elderly. States with legalized assisted suicide, like Vermont, may be the perfect place for experiments in the economics of extermination.
Whether for that reason of some other, American killers were reportedly an uninvited party to one woman’s “care.”
Three years after Vermont legalized assisted suicide, pro-lifers are beginning to witness the abusive effects of the law on the elderly and disabled.
Mary Beerworth, executive director of Vermont Right to Life, shared the story of a 91-year-old woman who was staying in a rehab facility because she broke her wrist. When her family was not in the room, Beerworth said rehab staff repeatedly asked the elderly woman if she was in pain or depressed; then they would remind her that she could commit doctor-prescribed suicide under the new law. Beerworth said the woman never was diagnosed with a terminal illness; she just was old and had a broken bone.
Coercion and abuse are major problems in states where assisted suicide is legal. Beerworth said the Vermont legislation makes it worse by requiring that every person diagnosed with a terminal illness be told that they can commit assisted suicide with a doctor’s prescription.
And the pro-euthanasia group Compassion& Choices, formerly the Hemlock Society, hired someone in Vermont to go to geriatric conferences and senior citizens’ expos to promote assisted suicide, Beerworth said. On their display table, they give away life savers, she said.
I have been in rehab. When you don’t have use of one or more limbs and have to try to recover use (or worse, learn to live without the proper use of that part of your body), attitude is everything. The encouragement and optimism of the staff is extremely important. I can’t imagine trying to recover amid whispers that I would be better off dead.
In many cases, that would prevent recovery that could happen otherwise.
But then they won’t be “draining the system” anymore!
I’m used to reading euthanasia horror stories from Europe, but these were American killers!
