The following comes from a Nov. 5 story on CBS-TV San Francisco.
An Alameda man who said he just wanted to end his wife’s suffering is in jail Wednesday night accused of fatally shooting her, and neighbors insist it was not a murder but a mercy killing.
Neighbors are saying prayers for the loving couple that was once inseparable. 72-year old Joann Canfield was suffering from advanced dementia and had been hurting herself around the house.
Investigators say her husband J.C. Canfield, also 72 turned himself in and confessed to a mercy killing after apparently shooting Joann in the head before leaving roses next to her side.
“He told us that he decided to end his wife’s life to end her suffering. He said it was something they had spoken about,” Alameda Police Sergeant Rick Bradley told KPIX 5.
Neighbors say Joann’s recent stay at a nursing home was brief.
“She was running from the monsters she was seeing, so he thought it was best to put her in the nursing home. And he was really happy to bring her home,” neighbor Bridget Milet said.
JC is also very ill according to those neighbors.
“To hear he did that is sad, but it’s [understandable],” neighbor Rosa Flores said. “She was definitely sick, and he was worried he wouldn’t find anybody else to take care of her if something happened to him.”

We will be hearing lots more stories like this as we are being softened up to accept killing as a compassionate option. It is not! This is evil from the pit of hell and all the sentimental hooey cannot hide it. Do not be fooled!
Keep this in mind folks and repeat it often:
CCC: ” 2324 Intentional euthanasia, whatever its forms or motives, is murder.
It is gravely contrary to the dignity of the human person and to the respect due to the living God, his Creator.”
CCC: ” 2277 Whatever its motives and means, direct euthanasia consists in putting an end to the lives of handicapped, sick, or dying persons. It is morally unacceptable.
Thus an act or omission which, of itself or by intention, causes death in order to eliminate suffering constitutes a murder gravely contrary to the dignity of the human person and to the respect due to the living God, his Creator.
The error of judgment into which one can fall in good faith does not change the nature of this murderous act, which must always be forbidden and excluded. “
Code Words “Death with Dignity”.
“Death with Dignity” is included in the 2014 California Democratic Party Platform.
This means it is one of their goals.
When are the Bishops going to teach that one may not VOTE for those who support the INTRINSIC EVILS of: Abortion, Euthanasia, Homosexual Marriage, Contraception, Human Cloning, and/or Embryonic Stem Cell Research ? ? ?
When are Catholic VOTERS going to learn that they have a critical responsibility ?
Let me get this straight! His excuse is that he killed her because she might get hurt around the house? Really!!!!
I guess we can all kill family members, since the home is where accidents are most likely to occur
with ages 0 – 4 being the most vulnerable.
