Iron Lung Patients


Martha Mason died Monday, May 4,2009, less than a month from her 72nd birthday 

You can read Martha’s story at the above link.

A doctor explains how some of the surviving approximately thirty iron lung patients, who are not physiologically capable of being transferred to a positive pressure ventilator, are being abandoned.

These are the lives of real people, lives equally as important as the lives of their enemies—the Duty-to-Die Societies!

In my entire life I have never seen or heard the stories of people living in iron lungs. Until I stumbled across a news announcement this morning about Martha Mason, I didn’t even know such people existed.—And I sure didn’t know that such old, out-dated technology still existed.—Or is it really “out-dated”???

I dedicate this blog to these people who are a good example of civilized citizens Living with Dignity!


About Ironsides

I was born in 1951 with Arthrogryposis, developed scoliosis at ten years old, but travelled alot and worked in several countries with a religious cult. All my adult life I have had to live with others, and after three respiratory-failures I had to move into a long-term care institution.
