We Treat Our Pets Better Than We Treat Our People
My dear Aunty is currently in palliative care, her wasted body wracked with excruciating waves of pain that no amount of morphine can subside. She is 95 and isn’t going to get better.
A few years ago my family dog, Schooner, was in tremendous amounts of pain, and after a fun-filled 18 years it was time for her to be put down. This was the humane thing to do.
There is nothing humane about the situation my Aunty is currently in.
I’ve spoken about euthanasia before and I still think that the laws need to be reviewed. People in my aunties state should have the option to choose to die...should have the option to die with dignity.
