Dignitas is creeping



“Minelli said there should be virtually no restrictions on helping people to kill themselves, describing it as “a marvellous possibility”.

“I have a totally different attitude to suicide. I say suicide is a marvellous, marvellous possibility given to a human being. Suicide is a very good possibility to escape a situation which you can’t alter. It is not a condition to have a terminal illness. Terminal illness is a British obsession.”

A grieving spouse.

How caring.

How dignified.

Extreme togetherness.

“Ludwig Minelli, whose Dignitas group has helped more than 100 mostly terminally ill Britons to die, told the BBC he planned to test the legality of helping a healthy person end their life alongside their dying partner.”

For now……….

And later?

What situation will be tested later?

A grieving son?

A grieving daughter?

A grieving sibling?

A grieving grandchild?

Children can grieve so very much.

And it is so painful to watch the sadness of an orphan.

Children have rights too……

And the sick cost the taxpayer so much money………

Your money. My money.

“Minelli said assisted suicide made good sense financially for the NHS because many people who failed to kill themselves required expensive long-term care.

“For 50 suicide attempts you have one suicide and the others are failing with heavy costs on the National Health Service,” he said.

“They are terribly hurt afterwards. Sometimes you have to put them in institutions for 50 years, very costly.”

No, Mr Minelli, Lawyer of Human Rights. Of the 49 failed suicides, many are simply a transient cry for help.

And no. It is unlikely they will be in institutions for 50 years.

“As a human rights lawyer I am opposed to the idea of paternalism. We do not make decisions for other people.”

God forbid that paternalism might ever get in the way of suicide.

Or murder.

Will the law creep too?

Probably, My Black Cat.


Because The Human Kind eventually display their  inate thirst for power in many, many ways.

History has told us this is so.
