Like Banco said, horrendously difficult.
Making a personal decision on assisted suicide, euthanasia, whatever, requires you to be able to come to terms with your own mortality - not something many (any?) of us would find easy.
Think about your mortality now, and what the future brings...
Myself, I can't find it in me to support something like assisted suicide or euthanasia - seems too easy to abuse in someway.
As far as the actual case, what does this say about the way we treat the elder members of our society?
I understand the situation from a UK perspective - but would a similar situation arise elsewhere in Europe or USA?
Please do not interpret this as an opportunity to kick off an infantile Europe vs USA slanging match, but is there anything that we can learn from this sad situation?
Incidentally, that the case went to court was absolutely the right thing. DI
Phil Burke explains this well on the BBC website link.
I don't like signatures...
