    How you deal with it teaches the next generation how to humanely deal with you. If you are a person that believes in an afterlife, euthanizing is even less of an option.
    You seem to have misunderstood my point too. My comment isn’t an endorsement of euthanasia. But in an honest comparison, im not sure which is really the more humane option.

Basically drowned from the fluid in her lungs.
    Bullshit.................AGAIN. That's EXACTLY what your comment of "Iím not sure that euthanizing them isnít the compassionate thing to do." implies. OWN IT!

    I say that because she lived with my parents. I’m not going into all the details with you. But I will say what I meant by that was watching the toll it took on my own mother.

    What pathetic is you. You are selfish and only concerned about your own guilt instead of actually considering the facts

    That's how I understood it but I still can't see how one could consider euthanasia in such a case as being humane.

    How we deal with such things is definitely a reflection on ourselves and tells the bext generation how to deal with us as we age.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    I have sister with dementia. I went to see her in the nursing home a couple of weeks ago and her eyes didn't focus on me the entire visit. She is alive but lifeless and I don't want her put down.

    It's all a matter of costs. If California (etc) has over $422.3M a week to throw away on illegals..............
