Maine legalizes assisted suicide
Maine became the eighth state in the nation to legalize assisted suicide Wednesday after Gov. Janet Mills signed a law allowing doctors to prescribe fatal doses of medication to the terminally ill. Mills had previously said she was unsure about the bill, which declares the practice does not constitute suicide under state law. She also issued an executive order for the state to analyze how the law’s impact on the state. “It is my hope that this law, while respecting the right to personal liberty, will be used sparingly,” said Mills, a Democrat. ...

No, I won't take your word for it. How do you know they do a good job? From their own claims? NGOs love to blow their own horn.

BTW people, I didn't claim hospice *necessarily* means euthanasia, but it can be used for it by the unscrupulous. That I saw firsthand.

Not at all overboard, Christopher. It may well be that legal assisted suicide could become mandatory. You know, when you are no longer "useful" to society, etc. Now that might be overboard, but not so much in this sick world.

Hi Frank, me neither. I was listening to a Christian radio station yesterday morning, and this pod came up as a topic. I looked it up right away to read about it, and I was as surprised as you were. Imagine for a moment if the "Sarco" became readily available, and little Sarco, brick and mortars were set up where the downcast and brokenhearted could walk in, and never walk back out, and with a line of hurses, permanently parked at the back door for pick up, and transportation to the nearest funeral home. Should suicide become that easy, painless, and available, just imagine how many people would start taking their lives, because they're having a sad day, a difficult year, or suffered a recent break-up, etc., etc.

I suppose I went a little overboard on its future availability, but in todays climate of "My body, my choice", how long before anyone and everyone is given the legal right to just off themselves for any reason? Jack Kivorkian would be proud...

One of my very close relatives died in a hospice. As far as I know, everything was done as it should be. She had terminal cancer, of an aggressive type, had had one very brief course of chemotherapy which did not go well, radiotherapy, and surgery before that. The palliative care provided at the hospice was very professionally done.

Though we do not have full blown euthanasia permitted by law in Britain, and pro-life MPs in the House of Commons, and peers (nobles) in the House of Lords, many of them permanently disabled or with a terminal illness themselves have successfully managed to resist proposed laws that are constantly being raised up by secularists and liberals, we have had many very subtle forms of euthanasia such as the infamous “Liverpool Pathway” used in hospitals on elderly people.

I have heard of relatives who have successfully objected when a hospital tried to withhold basic food and water from their loved one when they had a stroke.

Tragically I believe it is only a matter of time before the leftists and secularists get their way, and get a bill successfuly through Parliament, aided by activist court cases.

Hospice care provides care that incorporates pain management. Many people who enter hospice have but days to live but don’t want to die at a hospital or a nursing facilitiy. For families who have watched their loved ones suffer from cancer, hospice is a viable option.

A man named, Philip Nitschke, recently created a 3D printable death pod, naming it, Sarco, because his pod of death doubles as a coffin (sarcophagus). The pod is for anyone who wants to commit suicide. A person wanting to end it all would lay down inside, close the cover, and push a button on the interior that will fill the pod with liquid nitrogen, killing them. Before the pods hatch will open, the pods artificial intelligence must approve their suicide by requiring they first take a mental capacity test-ridiculous.
Assisted suicide is on the rise, and gaining in popularity and approval around the world, even being made available to people for depression, like the recent case of a Dutch teen who just couldn't cope with life any longer. Tragic all around, as this world waxes worse and worse.

from the news:
“It is my hope that this law, while respecting the right to personal liberty, will be used sparingly,” said Mills, a Democrat. ...

That's why she signed the bill, so it could be done "sparingly." Similar to abortion should be "safe, legal, and rare." Also said by a Democrat. Such is the depth of their words.

And don't forget the new trend in burials is to be buried in a forest after being cremated. The newspaper article I read on this did not mention that cremation does not convert your body into 100 percent ashes; there are still some bone fragments left to be disposed of, so I guess the forest burial route will look more like a cemetery.

Take it from me, Neil, hospice can also be a very good program especially when it's run by a religious denomination. The Lutherans do a good job here in Lincoln ❗

If you're contemplating a will, better hope you can grant Medical Power of Attorney to someone you can really trust your life with.

Take it from me: Hospice can be a backdoor means for euthanasia.
