The trial of scientist Sean Davison, accused of attempting to murder his mother, ended at the High Court in Dunedin today when he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.
Davison (50) was on trial on a charge of attempting to murder his terminally ill mother Patricia Elizabeth Davison, 85, a former medical practitioner.
He today pleaded guilty to an alternative lesser charge of inciting and procuring his mother’s suicide.
There can be no doubt that as the Boomers approach retirement and old age euthanasia will become both legal and encouraged by a society which increasingly will come to see the elderly as nothing more than a financial drain on the resouces of the “productive”.
And while it may initially be limited to those who have bad health, is it much of a leap to imagine that anyone (and not necessarily just the elderly) who is viewed to be “a net drain” on society will also be ‘encouraged’ to make that one way trip?
Just as abortion is now viewed by wider society as little more than another means of contraception, so too will state sanctioned euthanasia quickly evolve into the cure all for an aging population.
