Scary. It seems to me most people, including those who are against euthanasia while in top form, will more than likely change their minds and attitude when faced with their own suffering while on death's threshold. Thanks for the heads up. Very good article, excellent writing.

I'm a big campaigner for the right to die. I'm glad you introduced this very important topic.

I personally do not see why Dr. K should be in prison. When someone has no chance of recovering from an illness it should be their decision on whether they want to continue. Life sciences should be taught in highschool so that a well educated student will know what his options are should he become brain dead. However I object as a nurse to starving someone to death. The options should be made available where a person can sign their own document and have placed in a secure place.

It is a tricky topic,but I feel nobody has the right to make the decision of how and when for me.It seems to me,that most of the people who are against euthanasia are so because of religious persuasion,that was not based on personal conviction,but rather on indoctrination.Those same people I often hear talking about sending our sons and daughters to war to kill other innocent and ablebodied young people or risk being killed themselves.It often was a bullet in the front from an unknown enemy,who was in the same boat,or one in the back from your own leaders.I will not call on anybody to take resposibility for whatever decision I made when I am to meet my Maker.If we believe to be living in a democratic society,then we should be able to determine our own fate.Man should be master of his own destiny.

Being a senior citizen I find this very interesting. I've often said it's a good thing we can't die just because we want to, but I wonder................

Good question. I keep it the back burner. It's my decision. Thank you for the informative and interesting update. You had me thinking about Cleopatra's search - anything further on the asp?
