We routinely save our animals and pets from suffering by having them 'put down'. Not so our loved ones. We have to watch them writhe and squirm, deteriorate tragically and painfully slowly, become zombies before our eyes, spitting, coughing, choking. We have to witness the utter indignity of their demise, from wonderful functioning beings to wrinkled, emaciated, pallid, living corpses. We have to hear their lungs filling up with liquid and them gasping for air, desperately trying to clear the blockage, slowly drowning. We have to see the torturers come and pump out their lungs, move their bodies while they cry out in pain and discomfort. We have to watch them defecate, urinate and vomit and all this apparently is love, is civilised and can't be changed.
The asinine law fears, rightly, that many offspring may well want to bump us off early to snatch the inheritance and avoid the inconvenience of our care, but can't, among all its intelligent minds, find a way to allow adults, choosing stridently to end their lives, clearly and confidently to avoid the horror of such a death, so to do.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man.
To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression
is truly an act of a pure heart."
