    Considering that statistics show that the most deaths have occured between 40 and 50, this is appalling. To say that someone’s life is summed up by 8 points, and that your means of survival is halved when you are 71, etc, is completely untenable. Every life matters, EVERY life! And, re the idea that learning difficulties may go against someone, as shown in the ‘not yet’ of one of your previous posts (which presumably means ‘maybe’ at some time in the future) means that anyone with Down’s Syndrome to any number of problems may be deemed unfit to live. What next? People with Asperger’s or discalculia? Maybe introverts? Forgive me for sounding somewhat over-exaggerating, but this really is the thin end of the wedge. And when GPs are advised to contact their older, frailer patients to ask them if they have wills, etc, in place, I find this extremely chilling and hate to think how badly this will affect those vulnerable people. If we think about it, the country is now being run by a small handful of elites with no checks by even their own party members, let alone the opposition in parliament. I think there may need to be some accountability when this is all over…IF it’s ever over!

      I hope the church leaders will speak up – “Do not cast me off in my old age, do not abandon me when my strength fails”. Psalms 71.9
