Healthcare to Die For

In an Examiner article Kelly Bartlett takes a look at the recent bill to allow for physician assisted suicide:

“Lawmakers introduced a physician assisted suicide bill (H. 274) on Thursday that would allow healthcare personnel to help terminally ill patients to kill themselves.”

Despite the lofty rhetoric surrounding this notion, some see it as more sinister:

True Dignity Vermont states, “Suicide is never death with dignity, and assisted suicide legislation threatens true patient choices at the end of life.”  The organization reports that teens, the elderly, and people with disabilities are at risk:  “Elders and people with disabilities are, as a group, at high risk for violence, abuse and exploitation.” (Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services.)”
