The generation that wanted to have death via abortion now wants death via “assisted dying.”
Baby boomers are retiring in droves and are facing age-related illnesses in increasing numbers. Just as Obamacare is going to gut Medicare which the retirees will be relying on.
Maybe they are not thinking of it that way but the baby boomers–who have caused such cultural harm–are leading the way to exit this life when sickness comes their way.
I have suspected that baby boomers will not want to live unless they are perfect–by their standards anyway. I now have proof. I saw this article about boomers from organizations like Compassion and Choices–yes, they are still pushing this false choice argument!–who want to be able to kill themselves with the help of medical professionals if they get sick and cannot handle it.
They cannot just refuse treatment. They want to corrupt the medical profession. They don’t get the concept of the Hippocratic Oath. They have pushed abortion which of course violates the Hippocratic Oath. And now they are doing it proudly at the opposite end of the life spectrum.
Abortion is about selfishness and convenience. Suicide is also about selfishness and about fear. Fear of pain and suffering.
The baby boomers largely rejected the Christian faith that their parents bestowed on them. They embraced materialism. And unrestrained sexuality. Which led to 55 million abortions over the last 40 years.
Now that they are old and facing their mortality, they are still all about avoiding pain and seeking the easy way out. Even if it means death for them and not just death for innocent babies.
A life spent worshipping death leads to destruction for these folks, who largely are responsible for ruining this country by their sheer numbers and evil choices. And even as they face their end they want to justify their “lifestyle choices” by making it the law. They want to go so others should as well.
What they don’t get is that what may start out voluntary will eventually become obligatory. When Obamacare doesn’t work and costs go through the roof, people who are old and sick–thus worthless according to a post-Christian society–will be the next to go. Like innocent babies, the ill elderly will be called inconvenient and burdens.
Society will not want to pay for them and they won’t have the money to do so. Former governor Richard Lamm advocated years ago that elderly people had an obligation to die.
What was once silly–kind of like killing children is somehow a woman’s right–becomes accepted over time.
Be afraid. Be very afraid, especially if you are getting on in years. Because even if you and I don’t love death, their love of death will put the final nail in the coffin we once called America.
