‘Aid in Dying’ Movement
Takes Hold in Some States

New York Times, by Erik Eckholm

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 2/8/2014 5:46:05 AM

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

My family is in the midst of two 92 year old grands doing the slow march to glory. It is painful but God is in control. Lethal injection is murder cloaked in deceptive words like aid in dying. I reject it totally.

From its recent financial reports, it looks like the NYTwits could use some Aid in Dying.

One of the most powerful lessons in my life came from my father in his last months fighting an aggressive, terminal cancer. He showed me how a human can face a godawful ordeal with courage and grace.

I´m glad. For those who aren´t happy about it, consider it you needlessly suffering with no hope of getting well or even any improvement. How long should you lie there in pain? No thank you. I´ll take Aid in Dying any day over that.

It´s incredibly naive to think that a person making the decision for himself is where this would end. If YOU want to buy the farm, go ahead and DO it already. The problem comes when somebody ELSE gets to make the decision for you or your loved one, be it Granny or a newborn that doesn´t quite fit the ideal of perfection.
As for Mr. Mitton (in the article) -- you doth protest too much. You live in Colorado for cripe´s sake, go buy a gun already. You tiptoe around talking about how you can´t do this and you can´t get that -- just DO it an get it over with. A quick trip to the library´s computer to read up on Google and then a visit to the drug store and you´ll still have time to meet St. Peter before the 10pm news. Good luck, sir.

Agree with #8´s first paragraph. And to add to the 2nd, for God´s sake, he lives in Colorado! Maybe he could get the government to supply him with enough pot to keep him high until he croaks. He refuses to get corrective surgery but would rather complain about his situation. (Aren´t there any bridges in Denver?)

I certainly have no objections to the principle that an individual can choose to end his remorseless pain and a hopeless situation.

But like any other legalized activity it will more and more become organized and regulated to benefit the state not the individual.

Soon declining your state arranged death may be taxed. John Roberts will agree. Ginsberg will recuse.

"Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further.". Which raises the question: Who is the greatest beneficiary? After all the words that best describe the baby boomer generation is "selfishness incarnate". Getting rid of their "frail" parents saves their inheritance and delivers them form care responsibility.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said.

Fail to Pay First Premium

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

War On Banks: Attorney General Eric Holder has opened up a new front against car lenders and has forged an alliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to frame them for racism, too. We don´t use the term "frame" capriciously, certainly not like Holder uses the charge of racism. His department and the president´s new consumer credit watchdog agency, CFPB, have announced a new settlement with Ally Bank for nearly $100 million.

Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
