It's a shame that we have such a hangup on assisted suicide. Even though technically it's murder, it's also a mercy killing. No one wants to sit and watch their loved ones suffer.

This is another reason we need suicide centers in the USA, as in Soylent Green.

The problem with mercy killings is that the person on the receiving end isn't exactly there to corroborate the story.

Thats why it should be allowed for a medical professional to carry them out.

It would be abused.

 

People are greedy.

 

You would see family members slipping doctors money under the table to deal with their "financial burden".

Of course it would get abused. But its better than shooting your wife yourself.

That doesn't exactly make a good argument for legalizing it, LOL.

Eh, maybe. I think in each case an exam would have to be performed on the patient in question. What is their condition, what's their mental state, etc. If they are in sound mind and just facing a lot of pain and a terminal illness, then I think it's only respectful to let them choose to die with dignity and as little suffering as possible. No sense extending the inevitable. It's often pointed out that we're more humane to animals than to people--we put them down when there is no more we can do for them, and they can't even speak up and give an opinion about it. If I were in this woman's situation, I'd far prefer to have the option to go peacefully in a controlled environment, and not have my loved ones have to deal with my blood on their hands afterwards. But she didn't have that choice.

 

I suppose she could have done it herself instead, but it's messy and traumatic either way. :( Just a sad situation no matter how you look at it. I feel sorry for this man.
