I don’t have an issue with it if everything is done properly by considering the entire situation at hand.
It is so very controversial for a variety of reasons.
Some people argue it is simply the most loving and humane thing to do in certain circumstances.
I remember watching a special on a young woman with a brain issue that would never ever improve. She was terrified of facing a horrible scenario as her situation worsened.
Her loving husband was so understanding and was supportive up until the very end. She died peacefully.
I can’t imagine how her husband felt. It was heartbreaking for him. It was truly selfless on his part not to ask her to live and face a difficult end.
She did not make a hasty decision. She knew there was absolutely no hope of a cure and was at peace with leaving this world. Her husband seemed to be at peace with her decision too.
I feel that they were both very brave in going through with the choice that was made. If her husband had any doubts he didn’t show it.
After watching this program I was convinced that I was in favor of supporting assisted suicide.
I have even heard people compare it to putting an animal down in order to prevent unnecessary pain. They say humans should have the same peaceful death.
Some people won’t bring their animals to the vet to allow them to die peacefully which is a shame.
I feel assisted suicide is allowing a person to die with dignity and should be allowed to each of us in all states.
