wyrd thoughts: my other blog

"The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things...."

News and views about current affairs, religious freedom issues, and the fight against euthanasia. Also the latest about my cats, goats, sheep, geese and chickens, life in Menominee county, and whatever else is on my mind.

British man fights for right NOT to die

Link above leads to news story
In England a man with a degenerative brain disease is fighting in court for the right NOT to be starved to death once he no longer can feed himself.

Funny, when it comes to 'right to die' a person's alleged death wishes are sacred. But when a person has the courage to want to live in spite of a severe disability, the guy has to fight in court to avoid being put out of his misery like an unwanted dog.
