Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

This is suppose to be in relation to unbearable mental illness... I think that was addressed quite early that if a patient is terminal, that is one thing BUT if the patient is NOT terminal that euthanasia is wrong. It is a very emotional situation of course, but what is "unbearable"? The ...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

In the context of the conversation, eyes means experience empirically. Good. Now please empirically prove that you just had that thought. To your satisfaction? Or mine. Ken I'd personally be content with your satisfaction. If your burden for empirical evidence is as high as it is for burden of proo...

Re: Anthony, Cleopatra, and Trump

There's plenty to dislike. He's still campaigning, which is irritating. He can't seem to give a speech, anywhere, to anyone, about anything, without taking time out to pimp his buildings, which is tacky and embarrassing. He's a blatant hypocrite. (Obama played too much golf, but Trump plays far, fa...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

What makes you think I dont talk to myself as well 8-}2 Maybe that's the unbearable mental illness you were talking about? So Nessa, Recently you started threads about loneliness, and euthanasia in relation to unbearable mental illness. I may not be sigmund Freud, but I think you may be trying to t...

Re: Anthony, Cleopatra, and Trump

winning an election with foreign aid Yeah, that's the Hillary/Left spin - which is far from true! If a different conservative (Trump is a pseudo conservative) opponent had run against Hillary, as many conservatives who despised Trump (AND despised Hillary) opted to just not vote for either, I think...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

From my understanding, which comes mostly from my dad's hospice nurse, is that morphine can shut down organs. So, in lower doses, it helps with pain. In higher doses, it basically hastens organ failure. Is organ failure and death inevitable? In many cases, yes. But if someone is given high doses of...

Re: Euthanasia for Unbearable Mental Illnesses

How so? For one, I'd say it can be a fine line between giving enough medication to relieve pain, and giving too much of certain meds that hasten death. Morphine is one such drug, which I was told by my dad's hospice nurse, can hasten death if given too much. Ok, what are your issues with hasten dea...
