Letter: An appalling comment from state legislator
It pains me to have to appeal to the public through this means, as I normally believe everyone has a right to their opinion, no matter how obscure, as long as it isn’t a harm to others. In this case, it is a harm, a serious harm to others.
This week, at a public hearing, Republican Rep. Donald LeBrun of Nashua suggested that perhaps there was a less expensive way to deal with those people with disabilities, and that they should consider voluntary euthanasia. I hope the voters of Nashua are ashamed.
This man sits on the House Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee! If he is representing this constituency by suggesting suicide, I am asking that we immediately demand his resignation. Not only is that thinking appalling, but he is in a position where that kind of thinking is not only allowed, but very public.
Please know who you are voting for, and remove this fool from any form of representation of those with any disability.
