Is this really where we are heading?
Think this is is ridiculous and couldn’t possibly happen? It already has.
An 85-year-old woman from northern Italy, Oriella Cazzanello, who was mentally and physically healthy, disappeared without telling her relatives where she was going and paid €10,000 for an assisted suicide in a Swiss Lifecircle Association clinic. She ended her life because she was lonely and ‘weighed down by aging and the inevitable loss of the looks of which she was proud.’
Her lawyer received her ashes and death certificate from the clinic and broke the news to her family.
