On paper and in conversation this sounds humane.
sonnny1 was kind enough to present a tiny piece of the movie, Soylent Green.
Now, in the beginning the individual will be allowed to decide and must meet special criteria.
Will the decision for this "humane procedure" go onto eventually a board, or regulated by age outside of the individual's decision?
Read Minnesota Cold by Cynthia Kraack - Being a older American this story was unsettling.
In the beginning something can look good but science and corporations (which run solely now for $$$) have a way of turning everything into profit.
Myself, If I found out I had say dementia or was going to suffer a long painful death I would rather have someone that knew what they were doing
assist and not be a burden on my family.
But, things have a way of starting out meaning well, falling into the wrong hands and twisted around to suit the agenda of greedy and power hungry
For everyone out there that haven't read the books, Soylent Green and Logan's Run - do so.
They are calling it Death With Dignity................but I can't help wonder if there isn't some hidden agenda by some of TPTB to cull the "useless
Logically I say this is good but deep in my gut, I suspect this new allowance will be abused in the future.
