Perhaps the IARDC and Jerome Larkin aren’t so unethical as we think. Perhaps we are turning our morals and ethics back to 1930 Germany when Hitler said it was okay for parents to euthanize infants with defects that “weren’t good enough” for their parents. What do you think?

The use of assisted suicide, voluntary or not, is vociferously opposed by this blog. Life is precious and should never be taken for granted. Grandmas and grandpas should be treasured, given great respect, and not stuffed into nursing home cages like a boarded cat or dog when you are on vacation and do not want to be bothered.
The mission of this blog is to treat grandma and grandpa and any disabled person with the utmost care and concern for their welfare, as if they were the President of the US, The governor of Illinois, the mayor or whatever. These are important people in our lives who know all about life and are a continuation of respect for life, past, present and future. Join with us today in opposing involuntary assisted suicide for the elderly, making sure they are aging in place if they want to and that they are appropriately visited and socialized and have a phone, as long as they want one. I am still being told of too many cases where elders are isolated and drugged and placed in nursing homes against their will and this is shameful behavior–esp. when it comes from the court system and court connected/appoitned attorneys.
