Voluntary assisted dying legislation must be more ethical than recent police tactics : Comments

By David Swanton, published 25/7/2023

Although suicide is legal and the ACT Government is working to legislate for voluntary assisted dying (VAD), recent insensitive actions of police in Canberra suggest that police think suicide is illegal.

I recently read about an Albanese government webinar for age care workers on dealing with euthanasia for the elderly. I went to the site, and sure enough, there it was. Above another one advising on prevention of suicide among the elderly! As they say, you couldn't make this stuff up.

A few days later I revisited the site, and both webs had been removed.

That makes me laugh.

If you consider NGOís as bureaucrats, along with the less hidden of them, itís easier to understand the depth of the bureaucratic nightmare we contend with on a daily basis.

VAD was never ever designed for the demented to top themselves. There are nursing homes that cater for that category.

I believe the police were doing their job and are not likely to frighten the law abiding without good reason.

Various nut jobs want VAD extended to all manner of complaints, including burdensome old age.

Many of our oldies have much to contribute and need to be allowed to fulfil their destiny!

Endlessly reusable solid state electric star drive won't invent itself nor will it be produced without capital. Idiots with capital, believe those with the best ideas are just there to be exploited to the max, ditto Joe public.

Gotta spend a sprat to catch a mackerel! I am very unwell, and the clock is ticking! Can't fund it alone? Consider a consortium? Tick, tick, tick.
