Swiss Clinic Suicide Over Lost Beauty

There is no limit to the death culture any more. An elderly Italian woman paid Dignitas 10,000 Euros to be made dead because she had lost her looks and was lonely. From the Daily Mail story:

A healthy Italian woman paid a Swiss right-to-die clinic to take her life because she was ‘unhappy about losing her looks.’ Oriella Cazzanello, 85, travelled to a clinic in Basel, Switzerland, where she paid €10,000 for an assisted suicide.

The elderly woman, who was in good mental and physical health, disappeared from her home in Arzignano, near Vicenza in northern Italy, without telling her relatives where she was going.

Her family, who had reported her to the police as missing, only learnt of her death after they received her ashes and death certificate from the clinic.

That last bit says it all.

Euthanasia/assisted suicide is an abyss with no bottom.
