There's a lot to the issue of assisted suicide.
Good arguments on both sides.
When I become (more) feeble minded, and dependent, I think I'd like to have the choice of a painless quiet passing. Hopefully there will be folks out there who can guide me and mine through this, without having to evade prosecution.
If not, I reckon I'll have to go it alone...

I believe the only reason laws exist for assisted suicide is the ability to cover up an actual murder. Very difficult at times to determine what elderly, dying people really want. Slippery slope. I'd support assisted suicide if the law was written similar to the DNR law. The choice should be made while of sound mind.

The older I get, the more I agree with assisted suicide. However, dontcha think it should be passed,,and regulated like any other health law..?? problem there is, a lot of times, even simple DNR wishes arent followed through,,for a myraid of reasons..
