It's not about ideas, it's about making ideas happen.

I have over 30 years of experience with Intact, initially joining the company in 1985 as a Mechanical Engineer. A steady progression of personal development resulted in an appointment to management of the company’s expanding Technical Assembly Department in 1992.This role encompassed all aspects of fitting, testing, installation and commissioning activities relating to the company’s products. As the company changed ownership in 2000, I was asked to lead the management of the product group, overseeing, internal sales, mechanical and controls design, project management, compliance, and commercial activities. This in depth business working knowledge, product knowledge and experience, enabled Isabel to progress into a role of General Manager in 2003 this later translated into the Managing Director , adopting a hands on approach to business needs.

Her 31-year-old daughter Lynn led an"unimaginably wretched" life and"feared degeneration and indignity far more than death"

When you go into hospice and they give you comfort care which is morphine and they slowly up the doses and the person starves and doesn't drink isn't in any more pain, becuse they can't feel the pain. but they just lay there slowly slowly dying. what is the difference between that and what this mother did to help her daughter? it's much more humane what she did then watching a person just wither away and their body deteriorate because of the morphine slowly killing them. So if she committed a crime so is comfort care a crime when they put a person in hospice that's slowly killing them only they call it legal. something's wrong with this world something's wrong with this system. She did nothing wrong.

"From the Guardian...January 2010
“Although the sentence for assisting suicide is up to 14 years under the Suicide Act 1961, Gilderdale was given a 12 month conditional discharge, walking free from court today. Her acquittal on a charge of murder, after the jury indicated strong sympathy for her case, is in strong contrast to other cases.”"

"Kind of gives the saying...
I bought you into the world I'll take you out a meaning. The daughter is the property of the parents, if mum felt her child had suffered enough and was done then that's a choice she made for her girl just like every other choice she's made since her daughter was born. Why can't she make the final decision for her girl?
Why can't she take the pain away?
If one of my kids were suffering beyond repair I'd do the same, not to ease the burden but to ease their pain and suffering ❤"

I've said since my middle son was born it's quality of life vs. quantity of life. And as a mother I had to make the same choice but to pull my son off of life support. In no way shape or form should this momma be in trouble for respecting what her daughter wanted.
