<<I wonder what our conservative friends think about this cost-effective solution to the long-term care crisis? Or is this just another example of someone failing to "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" and "take responsibility for themselves" by not being wealthy enough to afford long-term care?
As I understand it, earlier generations of Christians understood that this life was about suffering. A bed of roses they didn't expect.
These days, I guess that's something some people do not understand or will not accept.
If someone wants to take their own life, I have no objection to that. I don't think they should make that decision for other people as a general rule.
