    I feel there have to be protections. We know some doctors get so frustrated with patients they have hastened their deaths. I would argue it is up to the individual but there should be shown to some legal authority so it can not be easily abused. Generally, I am pro-life but understand when one does not want to endure pain forever.

    I get so frustrated with doctors that I wouldn't mind at all hastening a few of THEIR deaths.

    I understand. When a doctor tells a patient nothing to worry about and then a year later says - oh, it is cancer that demonstrates carelessness on the part of the doctor.

    I have no respect for the health care industry or the folks who work in it. I have found the whole shebang to be incompetent and uncaring.

    My experience in the UK has been very different - I've seen an awful lot of them over the last three years and most have been excellent in both respects, can't speak too highly of them. And you don't need money to get good care - the friend i made in hospital who was brought up by a druggie mother on a sink estate and developed a degenerative genetic disease at 14 so has never had a penny to his name got several months specialist care in a neurorehab centre to get him from wheelchair back to walking and a decent quality of life.

    The UK is such a totally different animal from the USA when it comes to health care. That probably has much to do with why your experience has been so positive. I am, of course, sorry you need frequent medical care, but, since you do, it's provident that you live in Queen Elizabeth's kingdom.

    I understand that prime minister Trudeau of Canada is proposing to legalise assists suicide. Be interesting to see how the bill fares and what safeguards are built into it.

    The Supreme Court ruled that no matter the government, they had to provide a law for assisted suicide. They decided not to follow the recommendation of a Parliamentary Committee which would have permitted youth or dementia patients arrange for assisted suicide. They will only permit Canadian citizens or permanent residents. It will probably pass despite the RC Church being against it. It is to be given a free vote meaning no party will tell their members how to vote.

    Hope the bill has more success than the one rejected over here

    Even if it does not pass, the Supreme Court has ruled that as of June 6 assisted suicide will be legal. The bill is to define what rules apply but if it does not pass there will be no rule and anyone can legally get assisted suicide.

    I think one should be able to end his life when he is ready to go.

    Yeah. If somebody is in such pain they honestly wish to die, why force them to keep on? I personally would take a neutral stance in talking and tell them I won't do anything but at the same time, I'd leave a gun at their bedside.

    If it's consensual then yes.
    I'd want someone to kill me if I was in that situation.
