    Great idea. Kill off everyone over 60 or better still go for the logan's run solution and do it at 30.

    I doubt that there really has been such an order (probably another distortion by sensationalist jurnos) but with the world going to hell in a hand cart nothing would entirely surprise me...

    I know nothing about this personally, but someone I know who is exceptionally well informed about the Liverpool pathway has told me that the Daily Mail's reporting of this issue was absolutely untrue. I can't say I'm surprised.

    To be fair to the DM (words I thought I'd never write) I've read elsewhere, and heard anectodally, that the Liverpool pathway is not all its portrayed as being.

    If I am actually able to end my life myself if ever it became undendurable to me, then I would like someone to end it all quickly for me. I don't want to take a while to die, tormented by thirst (a particular horror of mine), and which I've heard *can* be the case.

    I read - at least ten years ago - an account by a 56-year-old about being in hospital and seeing the letters DNR on her chart. She was told by a doctor friend that it meant Do Not Resuscitate, and was put on the charts of everyone over 55 in that pertickler hospital. She was named and photographed in the article, and AFAICR she named the hospital as well, and the hospital said they were going to change the policy.

    As for being tormented by thirst...when she was over 100 my mother had a major heart attack. The doctors told me she wouldn't last the night, but she survived another week, with no food or drink. I tried giving her tiny drops of water, but she'd screw up her face in disgust and wouldn't swallow. I suspect that at a certain point everything shuts down, and you don't want to ingest anything.
