I have told you recently about a beautiful man who now has maybe 4 months to live. I can"t give you exact time of his death because he has yet to decide. You thought God and the human body decided when one will die from a terminal disease? If you live in one of four states,you get to pick. Oregon was the first state,then came Washington state,Montana was next, and Vermont is the last state I know of that allows Physician-Assisted Suicide.
My friend has been fighting Cancer for over 15 years. I love this man, He is funny,and very smart. He has met Presidents,sports figures and knew two of our states Governors.I was going to meet Booth Gardiner,former Governor of our state. He
died of Parkinson"s before I got the chance.
Any time your told you have a life ending disease, though it"s a long time in the future I hope. I think ,as my friend has, that drinking the "magic juice" is the way to
leave leave this world. A party will be held, hugs all around, and then the drinking of the medicine,
I worked in a niursing home while I was going to college. People sitting in chairs,blank
looks,drool from their lips. I stood by my Uncle as he died in pain. Morphine was of no use. I held his hand and wispered how strong he was. He fought in France
and his uniform had no more room for his medals. At the moment of death,his knees
were crunched up to his chin. He was that bent over in pain. I dare anyone to keep
smoking after they watch a man drown in his bed. Emphysema is a mean way to die.
I wish he could have just drank a class of medicine and gone to sleep. We treat
animals better than my uncle. Prisoners get lethal-injection.
46 states in America have no such law. You have to have less than 6 months to live.
You need 2 Doctors to sign the okay to get the prescription that will end your life.
You have a waiting period of 15 days in our state.
Religious folks will fight this law. I guess pain,loss of reality,tears, doesn"t matter
as long as the person is alive. Red states would never allow this law,I guess. Compassion is not part of the DNA of a Republican.
I hope all of you and your loved ones live to be 100 years old. I hope such a law isn"t needed for you. Just in case:pass a Death with Dignity law in your state.
