The Other Price

What is a human life worth?

A Canadian doctor criticizes Sarah Palin for not aborting little Trig.

In Oregon the state offers to pay for a woman to commit suicide.

Now a British ethicist says it's OK to kill people with Dementia because they are drain on resources.

And they call conservatives heartless.

The veteran Government adviser said pensioners in mental decline are "wasting people's lives" because of the care they require and should be allowed to opt for euthanasia even if they are not in pain.

She insisted there was "nothing wrong" with people being helped to die for the sake of their loved ones or society.

These first lines are disingenuous because she isn't seeking for volunteers; she is actively encouraging it.

Lady Warnock said: "If you're demented, you're wasting people's lives – your family's lives – and you're wasting the resources of the National Health Service. Thus you are morally obligated to kill yourself.

We are approaching the means of helping people with Alzheimer's Disease. So let's kill them just as effective treatment appears on the horizon. One very ethical ethicist there.

It's interesting that this all for the benefit of society or the state. What is the political philosophy where the best interest of the state is but ahead of all other considerations, including humanitarian ones? I believe it's called Fascism.

Britain, once the gem of Europe, is under assault by forces determined to destroy that great nation. Sad.

Lady Warnock is 84 and sadly may have senile dementia herself.

Starting to sound like Nazi Germany all over again - they had a program to euthanize or sterilize the "mentally defective" which included dementia.

Sounds like the pointy-headed elitists are sounding off again...

The Left continues to reveal their fascist tendencies. Ugly, soul-less creatures.

If you all haven't seen Ben Stein's movie, I recommend it. I am buying it when it comes out. It really shows what we will be like if the left gets their way.

Of course, by killing the diseased and mentally ill, you are removing the need to spend a dime on research into treatments and cures. This is a money-saving endeavor!

Now I can support it! Yep!

Eugenics again!

Here in Virginia, to our shame, Joseph DeJarnette ruled one of the largest of the mental asylums, one which had an adolescent wing. The horrors that went on there!

And now Britain is taking up a similar campaign? Ugh!
