Euthanasia: an absolute essential for a civilised society.
Mistakes will be made with/through it no doubt, as in any other human endeavour, but the positive aspects outweigh the negative substantially.
I write as one who lost my father to suicide – his life was not of high quality, physically, and had not been for many years.
I think the trigger-point for him was that he could see the onset of what was probably Alzheimer’s, less commonly diagnosed 30 years ago.
He hanged himself and, in similar circumstances, I hope I would have that courage and determination, yet I am afraid I might not have, and thus for me – and everyone else – assisted suicide should be there as an option.
