Fanatic Homeschooler Equates Nursing Home Care With Euthanasia
According to fanatic homeschooler Kevin Swanson in his 9/3/13 Generations Radio podcast, those that place elderly family members needing assistance in nursing homes are, at least in spirit, complicit in euthanasia.
Instead, the truly pious individual takes care of such family members in their own home.
Those advocating this variety of stridency would then turn around and pitch a fit at those that would then not be able to afford to send their children to private school or be able to dedicate enough time to the pedagogy of the offspring with most of the attention going to address the increasingly complex health issues faced by the particular parent slipping into dementia or disability.
Secondly, if women are to be denied higher education as the Swansonites have suggested from time to time, how are these wives suppose to acquire this variety of expertise?
Thirdly, if the infirm needing around the clock nursing attention are suppose to be cared for in the homes of their children, what is to happen when the health of these frontline caretakers (who do not necessarily derive the same kind of endorphin high certain medical professionals seem to experience in these sorts of situations) find their own health compromised to the extent that they can neither oversee the wellbeing of their offspring nor their aging parents?
