Rights of the Aging (81002-C2-¶162.E)

Amend ¶ 162 E) Rights of the Aging as follows:
We urge social policies and programs, with emphasis on the unique concerns of older women and  the various  ethnic origins  persons , that ensure to the aging the respect and dignity that is their right as senior members of the human community.

Rationale

Men do not tie as many close relationships as women, and often end up lonely as spouses and friends pass away. We ought not emphasise the women, when so many men have difficulties as well. We also feel a need to say ethnic origin instead of ethnic person.
