    I heard this on the radio this a.m......per Michelle Bachman (R-MN)....Obama's thousand page health care plan includes a mandated checkup for seniors beginning at the age of 55...which includes.....get this....."end of life" counseling....

    ....along with Obama's plan to include abortion in his heath "care" plan (i.e., we will take "care" of you) it appears the real plan is to kill off the more costly people.....both young and old....

    ...also....considering that under this plan a government official....not your doctor....would have the ultimate decision-making power....

    ....this is plainly nothing more than evil on the march....:evil:

    Isn't it the duty of the old to die? Under Obama's plan it is.
    Kind of reminds me of "Soylent Green."

    One step at a time...not too many on the left will risk agreeing publicly with the concept....thus you won't find much in the media....but there are a few...

    Former Governor of Colorado Richard Lamm thinks so....

    People in Europe (whom the left wants to copy) think so....

    Just as freedom of speech includes the freedom not to speak, so does an individual's right to life include the right to die. The only ones who fight that are the "religious" extremists.

    That being said, why would anyone want to lie around with dementia in a nursing home for 20 years, if they could make a living will beforehand that licenses someone to let them die with a little dignity?

    I wouldn't want to lie around like that, but neither do I want to be perfectly healthy at 68 and have them tell me that for the good of the country I have to go to sleep permanently because Social Security doesn't want to support me and I have been forced into retirement and I didn't run for Congress so I don't have a pension built for a king.

    I completely agree: and if you're perfectly healthy at 68, you should have no reason not to go out and earn a living, along with all the other perfectly healthy people out there.

    Bullshit. It's wrong and immoral to pressure old people who are vulnerable to off thtemselves.

    For one thing, as anyone who has worked with people with dementia, there are varying degrees of it, and most people suffering from dementia still lead productive lives and remain a positive influence on their families.

    Learn to read. I was talking about people being able to make living wills BEFORE they get dementia. Such wills talk about just how bad one's dementia has to get before someone else gets power of attorney.
