176. I did address it. I said that I don't agree with the desire for suffering, how I would deal with my
my own mother (or at least my options), how I have dealt with a very similar real life application of the problem, and even included a personal parallel dealing with an admitted bigotry of my own and how it would apply in a similar situation.

In short, I dealt with your post fairly comprehensively, honestly, and seriously.

It isn't about being obnoxious, it is about ignoring all logistical concerns and magical thinking.

There are a ton of very real reasons why bigoted considerations are not plausible to deal with in these types of scenarios.

The patient, her family, the facility, and state law got what they wanted. You might find it uncomfortable but there is a such a thing as dark or gallows humor, she got what she asked for (in writing as well).

You can't deny it is ironic.
