'A rose by any other name....'

In the last three years, the following have euphemized their names. To what benefit remains to be seen.

It has certainly confused a lot of the rank and file supporters of the 'right-to-die' movement.

1. Hemlock Society USA changed name to End-of-Life Choices. (Considered more palatable name.)

2. End-of-Life Choices changed name to Compassion in Dying (upon merger)

3. Compassion in Dying changed name to Compasion and Choices (to complete merger.)

4. Voluntary Euthanasia Society of Victoria (Australia) changed name to Dying With Dignity - Victoria.

5. Voluntary Euthanasia Society (London) changed name to Dying in Dignity. (Considered more acceptable name)

6. N V V E (Netherlands) changed name to Right to Die NL (because euthanasia has been legalized)

I think that in the case of elderly people it's not necessarily to apply the euthanasia since they have already complied with the normal course of their lives and the rest of their path on their way to death is too short. That's what it said in the news yesterday and also said something about Generic Viagra
