Princess Diana of Great Britain, Britney Spears, Owen Davis, Drew Barrymore, Sammy Davis Jr., Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor and Halle Berry are just a few of the wonderful people we would have lost if they’d been any good at doing suicide. Accept and Be is the message from the Trevor Project.

The New York Times is staffed by those wonderful people who gave us Dr. Jack Kevorkian. The Times continually defended him as a courageous American hero until his “assisted suicides” of healthy people finally became too bizarre and immoral even for them.

Thank you, Massachusetts, for voting against physician assisted suicide. Our opponents carefully chose your state when they decided to put their initiative on your ballot, and you said no. Good for you!

Voters of Massachusetts: You don’t have to be religious to vote “no” on doctor-assisted suicide. Many in the international movement against physician-assisted euthanasia are not religious but motivated by the logical reasons against assisted suicide given below.

But the end of his story I cannot fathom. Taking the life of someone whose love was surely gifted to me by some power beyond my knowing would be unthinkable.
“For if I have come to comprehend anything from my experience, it is simply this: the person you have long known and loved who is no longer there is still there.”

This from the Onion!
Brain-dead 13-year old, capable of rolling her eyes and texting, to be euthanized. Devastated parents tell reporters they will donate her organs ….

One of Compassion and Choices’ slogans is “LET ME DIE LIKE A DOG.” Apparently, they believe that if we offer dogs “compassionate choices,” why not the same for Grandma? This is hard for so many of us simple Westerners to understand.

This leaves open the possibility that the thousands of people in hospices who are not terminally ill could be offered the legal option of euthanasia. After all, they are officially dying, even though they are not. In order to prevent this, everyone who walks out of hospice alive should be awarded a T-shirt. The “I SURVIVED HOSPICE” shirt will raise awareness that not everyone in hospice dies or needs help with suicide. As more and more people win their shirts, within four years, one million people will be wearing them! — that’s more than the population of San Francisco! and one in 300 Americans! The mind boggles.

Myth #4: Physician-assisted suicide is a legal “right”. You don’t need a doctor to commit suicide, and in that way, it is nothing like abortion rights, gay rights, or civil rights. You already have the power to commit suicide. No one can stop you.
Myth #5. Laws can be written in such a way that there will be no abuse of the elderly or handicapped. Any lawyer can tell you that there is no way to write a law legalizing assisted suicide without opening the way to abuse, especially elder abuse.

The 91-year-old grandma sold over 1200 suicide kits at $60 a pop last year from her home in El Cajon, California. For 60 bucks, you don’t get your money’s worth. The suicide kit is a tacky mess, and does not provides a dignified death, as promised. You die wearing a plastic dry cleaning bag over your head. She considers herself on a “mission of compassion,” a kind person who helps others, yet one of the people who bought her kit was a much-loved young man in Oregon.
