Intolerable

Something to chill your blood. This is from Section 2.3 of the Consultation Document on Margo MacDonald's proposed End of Life Choices (Scotland) Bill:

“Patients” who are not terminally ill, suffering from a degenerative condition, or unexpectedly incapacitated but who find their life to be intolerable may request assistance to end it from a suitably qualified and registered attending physician. In this case, the attending physician must seek a second opinion from a suitably qualified consulting health professional.


Did you get that?

“Patients” who are not terminally ill, suffering from a degenerative condition, or unexpectedly incapacitated but who find their life to be intolerable may request assistance to end it


They are planning to allow the State to kill people who have nothing wrong with them but find life 'intolerable'

Paulinus,

This is not a bill, but a hangman's charter.

I am starting to get scared.

Wasn't there supposed to be something about two doctors in the Abortion Act? No slippery slope?

A euthanasia bill has thrice been put forward. Interesting how once upon a time, say 60 years ago or so "They" said the Pill would never lead to such as this - yet, it has.
