I watched 'How to Die in Oregon' a documentary on Netflix. It's really powerful. Opened my eyes to the pain some of these patients have to endure, where hourly morphine injections still can't help. I'm certainly in favor of helping these people go out with dignity.

They touched on it briefly in the Doc that one guy was initially denied chemo treatment through insurance and they sent him a letter suggesting Death with Dignity since he was terminal, but I think they reversed it after he protested. A bit of the slippery slope argument where we don't want the health system to give up on people who are willing to fight.

Anybody else watch it?

I was initially against it, but as I stated in the post before I watched 'How to Die in Oregon' and changed my mind. All the morphine in the world can't stop the pain of certain terminal cancers.

As far as the state being involved, I'm supportive the law of the option. I'm sure some people on the no-side may see some danger in mandated euthanasia becoming more commonplace. I think that is a valid concern, but if it is modeled after Oregon I don't think it will be a problem.

Assisted suicide was declared legal in Canada by the Supreme Court about 8 months ago, with a 12-month suspended ruling to give the government time to draft the relevant laws. I am very supportive of this - I think we are kinder to our pets than to people suffering.

Add me to the list of people who support this. If this is what the person with the illness wants, they should be allowed to have this option available to them. It's their body, and it should be their choice. I don't get why that fact is so hard for some people to understand.

The only sort of concern I can understand is if the person's illness is advanced to where they may not be able to make that choice of their own accord, for fear of another Terri Schaivo situation occurring.

But of course, that's why it's advised that people make their wishes on this issue known and put it in proper writing when they are healthy enough to make those sorts of decisions.
