You shall not murder. Exodus 20:13
Alright! I have had just about enough!! This news has projected me into a whole new dimension of rage, the Twilight Zone of fury!
You read that right. Some poor individual was just getting to be too much of a burden for the family, so they put out a hit on him or her…WITH THE HOSPICE!!!
“Excuse me, Nurse Diesel? If you’re not too busy, could you please whack Aunt Gertrude in 127? She’s been out of it for some time now, and, quite frankly, our pockets are producing lint. And if anyone asks, we just can’t bear to see her suffer any more. But who can tell, right? She isn’t exactly Chatty Cathy lately.”
Am I being snarky? Oh, you betcha! It’s how I get when I’m mammothly pi$$ed. Am I being judgmental? Again, you betcha! Am I alone? Well, let’s go to the videotape, Bob! From the article itself:
The case is described in a letter written by a doctor who resigned from Belgium’s euthanasia commission in protest over the group’s actions on this and other cases.
It has raised concerns about weak oversight in a country with some of the world’s most liberal euthanasia laws.
Although euthanasia has been legal in Belgium since 2002 and has overwhelming public support, critics have raised concerns in recent months about certain practices, including how quickly some doctors approve requests to die from psychiatric patients.
That’s right: it’s getting to be a bit too much even for a country that’s taken to playing Whack-a-Mole with their less-than-fit countrymen.
Some people throw this accusation around most inappropriately, so I won’t use the word here. I will ask you if snuffing undesirables throughout a country doesn’t sound like another regime not too many miles from Belgium within the last 100 years. Goose-stepping was a fave past time of theirs.
I submit that the whole concept has taken a more subtle turn. The concentration camps have been replaced by nursing homes. They’re so much more user-friendly, don’tcha think?
You think not? Well, let’s try some articles I’ve written about eugenics and euthanasia.
Let’s start with Pirates of the Sacred Spiral, Part 9 from last June. Eugenics is something that has been planned and refined over generations! The elite who want to control the size and quality of the world population have steadily moved from brute force efforts to more subtle tactics. In today’s case, from death camps to nursing homes.
Not enough? Let’s try Euthanasia – Out of Our Hands? from 2015:
France Debates Making Euthanasia Doctor’s Decision…Doctors in France will have the right to put terminally-ill patients into a deep sleep until they die, under plans unveiled on Friday that reignited a national debate on euthanasia.”
Then there’s Told You So… from 1/14/2015, which is about as horrific as it gets:
So the doctor, without asking the (nursing home resident) if SHE thinks it’s time yet, slips her a mickey in her coffee to make killing her easier. The doctor must have been out of practice, because she apparently got the dosage wrong.
The old girl wakes up when she feels the needle and fights back. The doc then asks the family – whom I presume were indeed mentioned in the will – to hold her down…AND THEY SAY YES!!!
Maybe something on a lighter note – Making Euthanasia Fun! From 1/22/2016:
“…euthanasia in Holland has trebled in the space of a year, new figures have revealed. In 2013, a total of 42 people with ‘severe psychiatric problems’ were killed by lethal injection compared to 14 in 2012 and 13 in 2011.” And now, unbelievably, someone has invented what he calls the Euthanasia Roller Coaster. Seriously. It’s designed to pull excessive forces for an extended period that will cause the riders/victims to die from oxygen starvation of the brain. Most experts think it’ll just be unpleasant and likely make someone pretty sick, but WHAT KIND OF MIND THINKS UP THIS STUFF?!?
I can do this all day –
And this is just looking at euthanasia. Scroll down to “Categories” at the bottom and click on “Abortion,”
We use language and pleasing images to justify monstrous acts: Weasel Words & Wiggle Room. But here’s the thing…
What part of You shall not murder are we not getting?!?
