When the government bargain shops…

The family of a Canadian man who suffered from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is urging the federal government to change the way it treats patients with the disease after he received a medically-assisted death following years of struggle to find adequate care.

    More than one in one hundred..administered by a “physician”. Heydrich and his crew would be proud.

    One of my cousins had ALS, and had an “induced death” a little over 3 years ago.
    He got all the machines he needed,but his wife and daughter provided his care.

    At the service for him, his wife told everyone how, for the last few months of his life, she would greet him every morning by asking, “Wanna go to Heaven today?”
    And she was smiling as she said it.

    I still get chilled when I think of that.

    I hate to say this but with the prognosis and non-quality of life of those suffering with ALS, I’m sure a lot of them are “helped” along with their journey. Nobody needs to discuss it, no busybody needs to get involved (think bureaucrat, etc). This just opens the door to euthanizing others with diseases that aren’t as horrifying as ALS.
