    KiwK Dying with Dignity

    in Entertainment

    Today's show is a tough one, as I have a very special guest on the show to discuss her feelings about the controversial Death with Dignity program offered by Oregon as an option to terminal patients with 6months to live or less. It is a lethal dose of barbituates self administered by the patient who is looking die when THEY say, around the people THEY choose and without the pain they most certainly would face, otherwise. My guest, a close personal friend, is the widow of a man who had the same disease Brittany Maynard had, only unlike Brittany Maynard, her husband did not have that option. We will take a very emotional and painful look at the weeks leading up to and the day of her husband's death.


     


    I will take calls, even if you oppose Death with Dignity. HOWEVER, you better be respectful or your off air, no warning given.


     


    Thank you for listening.

    A Constitutional Right to Dignity

    in Politics

    The closest the Supreme Court has come to embracing the anti-humiliation principle is through its use of the term “dignity.” This link should be intuitive—what, after all, is the opposite of “humiliation” but “dignity”? Ackerman recognizes this nexus, but his discussion of it is tantalizingly brief.26 He acknowledges that the link between human dignity and the anti-humiliation principle may be unfamiliar to American constitutional lawyers, given that, in contrast to other jurisdictions, our constitutional traditions are built around the concepts of equality and liberty.


    Warren was simply calling upon judges, and the rest of us, to make common-sense judgments about the prevailing meaning of social practices. One of the greatest legal thinkers of the era, Karl Llewellyn, persuasively argued that judges couldn’t decide the most humdrum case without relying on this capacity, which he famously called “situation-sense.”It was Louis Brandeis, not Thurgood Marshall, who first used social science to convince courts to consider the real-world impact of their doctrines. As early as 1908, the Supreme Court relied heavily on his famous “Brandeis Brief” in upholding maximum-hours laws for women. During the following decades, the law schools became centers of sociological and economic critique of the regnant legal formalism The Anti-Humiliation Principle and Same-Sex Marriage Kenji Yoshino

    Death with Dignity Movement – A Catholic response

    in Christianity

    True death with dignity is trusting in our Lord God that He is seeing to the perfect timing of our personal death. We find dignity in God’s will. Nowhere else!


    I’m afraid the so-called “death with dignity” movement has the potential to become a rapidly growing problem. We Christians and all those who wish to follow the truth of Jesus and His Church or even just the truth of natural law have a duty to do all we can to bring the light of truth to the culture on this vital life issue.


     Jesus literally put the death we fear so much to death so we can be happy with Him forever. Nothing good comes from trying to take shortcuts form the cross. 


    Our heavenly Father is bringing a great good out of our pain and suffering when we unite it to Jesus on the cross.


    As very horrible as it was I thank God for my cancer. It was a gift like no other gift that had the efficacy of bringing me closer to God than I ever would have any other way. It also brought my family closer to God. And there is no price too high to grow in union with God. I can frankly say that I would not trade my cancer journey for anything.

    #Throwback - Bringing Dignity & Compassion to Caregiving

    in Caregiving

    “I Am Somebody” is a spiritually nourishing book by poet/author Frances H. Kakugawa - that is also likely to be healing for people who lack the words to describe their caregiving experiences, both past and present, and the range of emotions that accompany those experiences.


    Her message is a powerful one: Despite all the demands and burdens that caring for someone with dementia entail, the bottom line is never to forget that person’s humanity. The care recipient may no longer have the memories, abilities and personality that he or she once did, but there is a soul within that body that responds to and is deserving of love and compassion.
