Good headline, sad story.

On the one hand, I suppose it was their own choice.

But enough about getting rid of Grandma by getting her a one way ticket to China.

Didn't The Daily Mail get caught making up stories a while back? I don't believe much of anything they claim.

If it is true, then... okay. Probably not something I would do, but if they're of sound mind, it's their choice.

My sister applied for a scholarship that had an interview component. When one of the girls came back from her interview, they asked her how it went. It was at that moment that the girl realized the question had been about "euthanasia," not "youth in Asia."
 
2013-01-14 04:40:06 PM  
I think the Spiffy tag would be more appropriate. They wanted to die, it's not sad. It's amazing they got their wish.

Euthanasia? Isn't that a vaccine?

There was another article on this from another source and a really trolly headline in the queue earlier, but I'm too lazy to go find it.  I think it's legit.  Sad story.

Being either deaf or blind is one thing, but being deaf already - relying on sign language and visual cues for every bit of human interaction, communication, and basic information required to function and care for oneself - losing sight under those circumstances would have been devastating. They would have gone from employed and functional to completely unable to care for themselves. Not something to want to live with.
I doubt this had to do with not seeing each others faces again.

Good for them. Over here they'd need to try to DIY, due to Bible-thumping asshats.

If adults of sound mind want to die, they should be allowed to.

Agreed. They could have used braille to communicate FFS. But their life belongs to them, not the state. I agree with the article that in Switzerland you must be an active participant in the act instead of being put down passively like an animal when they had the faculty to do so.

I've just cared for a close friend during her last weeks in hospice at my house. I will not go out like she did in a delirium of pain and psychosis no drugs could touch because they caused much of it.

I've also had a close friend take himself out due to depression. He needed help he couldn't seem to find. I didn't know he'd tried to kill himself on several occasions, he hid his problem well and was coldly methodical with his end so that there would not be excessive trauma to those who were alerted. I feel he had other options he didn't consider IMHO. I still miss him and harbor survivors guilt -- at least I hope I'm better prepared to look for signs in others who are salvageable.

Regardless, I think these twins had options but instead of acting alone, they involved others in their decision so at least it wasn't unilateral and impulsive.

It's still sad. It's the only life you have and if you're not in pain and can still contribute and participate, cherish every moment. Look at Prof. Stephan Hawking. He's in a shell of a hunman body but the world looks to him for his knowledge and insight. If there's anyone whom I'd feel could make a decision to live like that, it would be him, the owner of that situation.

If someone is so far gone that they don't notice that the hospital has stopped feeding them, it might be time to let them go.

If their family doesn't notice that the hospital has stopped feeding them, it's definitely time to let them go.

From yesterday:

Stay tuned for MIss California's perspicacious, penetrating and insightful comments when asked her opinion about euthanasia, which follow in their entirety: "That's a vaccine, right?"
 
2013-01-14 04:57:38 PM  
They were going blind and couldn't bear the thought of never seeing each other again? Couldn't they hold hands or something?

Ooops... I should have read the article. They killed moby and his twin because they were depressed about going blind? WTF? That doesn't even make sense.

This is why you always want to know the latest medical findings or advancements. Just a week ago, blind mice were given sight through an experiment. They just didn't have blind human test subjects to see if whatever they did would also work on humans. What if it actually works on blind people and not just mice?
