The other day my neighbour s dog was put to sleep. She was already 15 which is very old for a dog and had some health problems. It seems as though animals that suffer from incurable cancers or are vey ill are put to sleep so as not to suffer. Then , if one can euthanise a dog ,a cat or another animal without asking their consent then why do we still refuse to euthanise a person that is asking for it all the time and who would just love to be delivered from pain and suffering.
Here in Switzerland a person can have Euthanasia in the following way. An association called EXIT gives them the exact medication to die without pain and they inject it themselves. Its therefore a way of suicide.
However if a person is tetraplegic(and I think that more than 50% of those who want to get euthanised are tetraplegic) cannot move a single finger and thus cannot inject themselves the deadly mix. Therefore here in switzerland they cannot die in dignity! This is ridiculous.........
