Are the economic interests of the personal care industry a relevant political factor that prevents assisted-suicide rights?
Assisted-suicide rights - A little known but huge hurdle ?
Wondering if possibly a huge hurdle ( apart from the traction-challenged hill arguments ), to politicians moving towards more Assisted-suicide rights, may be the resulting unemployment of personal-carers, less employment in public and private health-systems, and less employment in nursing-homes, and less consumers / customers for goods and services, initially an economic impact.
This economic impact would be temporary as society would adjust.
The aged, ill, handicapped, etc, may be one of the biggest industries.
Could it be that individual political parties in power, would not relish facing that initial / temporary economic impact.
