It is mind blogging how some people are so ready to suggest the plug should be pulled on others. What if the pluggee doesn’t want the plug pulled? Pull it anyway?
There you go. One more down. Who else can we get rid of?
The thought brings to mind a picture of an eager face with a vile grin and some drool running down the chin for good measure. “Oh look, that little old lady in Aisle 4 doesn’t have quality of life. I wouldn’t want to live that way, walking with a limp. Let’s get her. Boy, this legal murder is empowering. Look at me! I have power over life and death. Why didn’t we start doing this before now? Oh, good another one back by the frozen foods. Such a good day for plug pulling.”
Think it can’t ever happen?
Who would have thought we would ever be where we are today? Who would have thought we would be so ready to say that helpless people “aren’t in there”, and thus believe it is simply okay to starve and dehydrate them to death? Who would have thought, but that is where society has arrived at. Society is killing off the weakest without thought to those who have fallen victim to illness, injury, disability or age. It is outrageous at how cold and cruel our society has become.
It is easy to say someone has no hope, when no therapy or attempt has been made to help the person get better. It’s causing the problem and then having the problem be our supportive argument as to why not to take any positive actions.
[P]eople can’t always get better without the tools and treatment being made available to them.
They can’t wheel themselves down the hallway, if they don’t have a wheel chair to wheel.
They can’t do physical therapy if none is offered, nor anyone to tell them how.
They can’t take the necessary medications to cure their illness, if no medication is made available.
They can’t eat or drink if no food or water is provided.
They can’t look out the window if there is no window to look out of.
Simply put, people can’t get better if they aren’t allowed to get better, because all things that will (or might) make them better is denied them.
