Before I go: I want to make a suggesstion.

You reach pension age say 67. You can opt for a reduced opension for life or,

You an opt for a higher pension until you reach the age of 77. If you die before 77
the money saved is put into a pool for other pensioners. If you are still alive
at 77, you are taken away and euthenazed.

Do you think it would be a good idea?

I think you need to stay away from the Youth Fine Gael for a while....

I never supported Fg , I was from a FF family. I tended towards the NP, but its not great either.

Its a pity you did not comment on the post. In years to come abortion will be the end of 40% of prenancies and there is no way older people will be kept living into their 80's.

Legalising assisted suicide does not change your statement.
You still can commit suicide. The question is, should the State kill you?
This is a dangerous precedent.
Nothing to do with the state killing me.
A friend could do it.
Or a private agency.
Right now that would be an offense.
No one dying wishes to get their friends into trouble

I'll kill you. Would you like me to torture you to death, or humanely poison you?
