No it is everyone's business when the law is changed because it applies to everyone: the elderly person in a nursing home who is lonely and told it would be better if she died or the cancer patient who is told he can't get expensive treatments but the state will pay for assisted suicide (this happened more than once in Oregon). You may not be concerned about these people, but I AM.
It's no ones business except the decisional adult and their physician. It's called freedom. If it's not for you, don't do it.
Never give up on treating your cancer and diabetis for there is a cure and my husband was once a cancer patient, am wesie ryan living in Belgium. Two years ago my husband suffered from lungs cancer and diabetis the doctor told us that nothing could be done, I was so frustrated and the thought of loosing my husband was so unbearable that I lost all hope.
One faithful day my daughter told me that she had found a cure for cancer and she found it on the internet. Although i didn’t believe her I watched it anyway just to please her and after watching it I discovered that it brought my hope back and i wanted to give it a try.
I and my daughter started searching for legitimate source that could provide the hemp oil that would cure my husband. We read a lot of testimonies online of how a lot of doctors has helped a lot of patients cured their cancer with hemp oil and it was on one of this sites we found a sole distributor of RSH oil,olokum, we contacted him Via his Email: email@example.com or call +19147094469 or add him on whatsapp +2348158836673 which we found in the testimony we read.
RSH oil is the best ever, I followed his instruction and now my husband is healthy and I am so excited. doctor can cure diabetis, hiv/aids, warts and alot more.
Thanks to RSH oil for helping my husband cure his cancer with his and for also making life worth living once again. We all love you jon wesie.... God Bless
It's just a tough pill to swallow, as a long time Colorado Springs resident. c/s has some responsibility of maintaining parts of the incline and Barr trail. Most users of the incliners are from the Springs and most of the $$ donated is probably from c/s. So we pay for it, tax dollars go to purchase and maintain, fight for it, give our land(strawberry fields) and we get nothing from manitou! Other then the "your unwelcome here" sign when you try to park! Where's the long term solution if this doesn't get the results they want? Just keep raising parking? What about the alternative route down and parking at the bottom? We gave up strawberry fields for what? This? Cause this sucks. We get screwed again.
It is a delicious irony that you cite a Kennedy as having "the strongest arguments" against physician assisted suicide. I suspect the Kennedy family is a full spectrum away from your personal political positions. Politics aside, though, her husband never really answered to the family of Mary Jo Kopechne about the circumstances of her demise. That would make it awkward in my view for the senator's widow to advise anyone on the matter at hand.
Notwithstanding Kennedy politics and a mysterious fatal accident, the Kennedys, including, presumably the late senator's widow, are Roman Catholics. For them, suicide in any context is a mortal sin for which one will burn in hell for eternity. Mrs. Kennedy can hardly be considered a neutral or unbiased source.
I read the article. Mrs. Kennedy says:
"Kennedy argues that everyone wishes for a “good and happy death.” But passage of Question 2, she said, would not grant death with dignity, but would rob people of precious time with friends and family."
I can't help but wonder how Ms. Koepechne's family feels about that statement. They were robbed of "precious time" with their loved one. They never got the truth from Senator Kennedy. That the widow of the driver of the vehicle in the fatal crash is now preaching about how we should die is both hypocritical and insensitive..
She only mentions Spanish-Colonial Art. What about all of the Native American & other southwest pieces?
I wasn't trying to convince you. I want to show people how dangerous this bill is. Massachusetts had the same bill 4 years ago and the voters defeated it.
One of the strongest arguments put forward then was by Ted Kennedy's widow, who called this kind of bill "cruel.". Here it is:
This happened today at Northglenn High School. 09/29/2016. I confronted one of the men about my concerns as a parent and how they hang around a school and give out bibles. I told them it's not right that they hand out anything without a parent's approval. I wasn't there to agree to it, so they are in the wrong. I'm very angry that they reserve the right to hand out anything. For all we know one of these men may be a pedophile. Seriously, how do we know? It's how us parents view this. We have to protect our children from everything and for these men to put fear into the parent's eyes and showing us that anyone can do this outside of school grounds is concerning that the state and federal government are letting this happen. Isn't there such a thing as 'Parent's Rights'?
If you give someone a gun and a map of a jewelry store with instructions on how to rob it, you are as guilty as the person who performs the physical act.
If a doctor gives someone a poison with instructions on how to take it, that is being a party to the act of killing a human being.
By the way, calling them "pharmaceuticals" is not honest.
Learn how Amendment 69 will affect you from this balanced informational citizen generated site: colorado69.org
Insurance company scare tactics are alive and well...
Socialist propaganda is alive and well...
Blaming the Mantitou Springs City Council's greed on TABOR simply shows that"Vietnamized" has no idea what he's talking about. If they were really concerned about first responder access, then they would simply ban parking on Ruxton completely, not raise fees and fines.
No. it's about money and trying to convert Manitou into Boulder South.
These suits are likely to be dismissed because they are suing the wrong people. The real problem isn't the FPC manufacturers, but the USAF.
Also not mentioned was the use of these PFCs in the 1996 Mesa Ridge Tire Fire...
Money aside, both 69 and 70 are bad ideas. In fact, with the exceptions of 106, T, U, and Palmer Lake 301, every ballot issue should be voted down this election.
Maybe Willie Nat ought to read the initiative. It doesn't give the doctors the legal power to kill anyone (a power incorrectly and immorally delegated to government!), but it does allow them to prescribe the pharmaceuticals for the patient to self-administer.
I wish people who are so adamant about dictating to others what they can and can't do with their lives would simply STFU and go away.
None of the flaws pointed out (by yourself or Mr. Williams) is fatal to Proposition 106. Could it be better? Possibly. Is it better than nothing? ABSOLUTELY.
You don't like Prop 106. Understood. However, you have shown no flaw serious enough to vote against it. You've had a chance to convince me that it's not worth considering. You have only convinced me that you won't vote for it.
You are right. It is literally a matter of life and death. That's why I will vote for it.
Mr. Bill W.
You say: "Prop 106 may be flawed. It is, after all, a "Proposition," most of which are flawed in some form." Yeah, but if this is voted in, it becomes THE law affected all citizens of Colorado. If it is flawed, voters should reject it and send it back to the drawing board. NOT vote it into law. Especially since this bill involves matters of life and death of vulnerable people!
Mr. Bill W.
How would I be "offended by [your] support" for prop 106? That doesn't make any sense. I pointed out that someone can critique the details of the law and be opposed to assisted suicide in all cases. How can you dispute that? It's like being against a war but still pointing out that too much money is being spent on the costs of it.
Great balanced story Stanley. Whatever you think of these amendments you show the distorting effects of money on the campaigns. Thank you
