Beggars can’t be choosers. Do you know the phrase? It’s an old phrase but it was said by someone who truly understands the nature of poverty and financial inequality. It’s not about the money. It’s about the freedom which the wealthy have but the poor don’t. We’re all the poorer and we’re all beggars but doctors (and others who are free to choose how and when they want to die) are rich as long as assisted suicide remains illegal.
