It was a conversation with a young woman. I just wondered how many share her sentiments. She has a grandmother who is 99 years old. Grandma lives alone, in a condo in Florida. She takes care of herself. She's a bit confused sometimes and thinks that the people on television are talking to her. The granddaughter said that Gradma should just let go and pass on. I told her that since Grandma wasn't ill, there is no issue of letting go and passing on. She's in good health and doesn't even take medication of any kind. Grandma even has all her own teeth! Nevertheless, I was told, Grandma is not mentally all there. But, Grandma doesn't know it. She thinks people are coming to visit her. Then we come to the issue. Since Grandma is not sick, she should be euthanized and given the right to die because she is really old. Has "right to die" become a euphamisim for "obligation to die"? Should those of advanced age be put to death whether they want to go or not, whether they are sick or healthy because they are deemed by others too old to continue living?
