here's my question to all of you. if you were the patient, and you have cancer and an inoperable brain tumor and you know you're going to die, would you rather go though the agonizing pain of the "natural" death (and trust me, its jsut about the most painful thing you could ever imagine [read---uncle died of cancer]) or would you rather save yourself and your family the emotional and physical pain of a drawn out unwinnable battle with cancer?
i'll take the needle please
I agree, and was going to post the same thing.
It's physician assisted, for the terminally ill. Generally speaking, your family GP isn't going to make that determination on his own.
People have the right, I believe, to die with dignity, and without bankrupting their families while the medical community forces them to pursue expensive measures that won't prolong their lives or improve the quality of the time they have remaining.
