We could cure the common cold or solve the Gay marriage conundrum by respectively snuffing the snotty and burying the Gay.

My inner libertarian wants to believe that every individual has the right to do with their body   what ever they please. However my inner conservative thinks that those who want to have themselves either chemically or surgically disfigured to make them into a simulation of their desired gender are mentally ill and utterly delusional if they think that any amount of “renovation” can ever make them into what they want to be. At the very best they can become a sad parody of their desire. Naturally such radical disfigurement can lead to terrible regrets as this woman from Belgium discovered after she had convinced doctors there to mutilate her body.

athan, born Nancy, Verhelst, 44, was given legal euthanasia, most likely by lethal injection, on the grounds of "unbearable psychological suffering" on Monday afternoon. Wim Distelmans, a cancer specialist who carried out the euthanasia, is the same doctor who late last year gave lethal injections to congenitally deaf twins who were frightened they were also going blind. "I was the girl that nobody wanted," Mr Verhelst told Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper in the hours before her death. "While my brothers were celebrated, I got a storage room above the garage as a bedroom. 'If only you had been a boy', my mother complained. I was tolerated, nothing more."

This instance of “buyer’s regret” is by no means unique but the fact that this sad woman was Belgian meant that she could get assistance to commit suicide which raises the ethical question for the euthanasia enthusiasts, namely where do they want to draw the line when the mentally ill seek suicide as the final  solution to their very poor life choices?  Surely the next step in Belgium has to be to start helping the schizophrenics to die when they voices get too loud? or to offer the manic depressives the needle when the lows are to dark?  What about those of us with chronic back pain?  Are we too going to qualify for the blessing of death? What about athletes who get a nasty sprained ankle surely they too should be put out of the misery of failure when they can not compete? Maybe even sporting teams who suffer the anguish of loosing the grand final should all be given the phenobarbital  blessing    to save them from the anguish of defeat. (and to improve the sporting gene pool by culling failures ) Why stop there? We could cure the common cold or solve the Gay marriage conundrum by respectively snuffing the snotty and burying the  Gay.

Oh hang on this line of argument sounds awfully familiar to me as it should be to any student of history, it is where the  well oiled slippery slope could lead too and sadly there are far too many euthanasia enthusiasts who are either uncaring or oblivious to the negative consequences to the changes that achieve their desire to embrace the fleshless  arms off death.

Do we really want to go there Comrades?

    I’d go along with that one, Iain. It’d sure provide some pretty strong motivation to win. Oh, and I’d make it retrospective to 2011, the year Collingwood lost the GF – they deserve to die. Hawthorn lost the final in 2012 so that would have been the end of them and they wouldn’t have been in this year’s GF (which they won) and nor would Buddy Franklin be getting $10 mill from Sydney. And that means Freo would have won this year against Geelong so it’d be bye bye to the up themselves Cats at long last too. It’s a great leveller, Iain. Good idea.

    Dare I suggest the Australian CRICKET TEAM Ray?

  3. GD says:

    Tragically, Nathan Verhelst regretted his/her choice for ‘gender-reassignment’.

    ‘My new breasts did not match my expectations and my new penis had symptoms of rejection. I do not want to be… a monster.’

    This is such a sad story. Yet the Left promote this dysfunctional behaviour as the ‘new norm.’

    Bill Shorten reckons that these disfigured human beings deserve a quota-filled place in Parliament.

    He says the party should consider quotas…for the lesbian, gay, bixsexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community.

    A place in hospital maybe, but certainly not a seat in Parliament.

  4. Ray Dixon says:

    The Coalition already has a quota-filled place in Parliament for transgenders. Oh, wait, …. ‘she’ lost her seat.

  5. James says:

    Was this really a case of “suicide” or a physician-assisted killing? To what extent was she encouraged to end her life? What kind of society finds killing the psychologically vulnerable a “good thing?”

  6. Ray Dixon says:

    The Greens believe (strongly) in assisted suicide. Says it all.

  7. GD says:

    The Greens believe (strongly) in assisted suicide.

    And they’re the party/ideology who support this transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community.

    You’ve really got to wonder what side of the bed these fools get up on.

    First they welcome sex change, gender reassignment, or whatever you call it, then they promote euthanasia and assisted suicide.

    First cab off the rank was this sex change gone wrong.

    Way to go Greens.

    Not happy with your gender, cut your dick or tits off, or pretend the doctor can build you a penis or vagina.

    When it all goes wrong, don’t worry, the Greens have a simple solution…

    euthanasia or assisted suicide…

    simple really
