Valeria, your experience is somewhat different from mine. I had a very dear friend commit suicideRead More because all that could be done, at the end, was to sit in bed on major and I mean major drugs to control the pain.They decided for themselves before they where totally incapacitated to end it. Watching that suffering they went through convinced me that the end of a life is a personal choice that belongs to the person who is living that life and no one else on earth.

For one who has a family member just diagnosed as terminal (many problems par for the course for aRead More 92 year old) if we had such a law permitting assisted suicide, I'd say proceed with caution based on our experience of the last couple days. Loved one requested the "plug pulled" many times (actually no plugs or machines simply occasional respiratory mask as breathing aid) but changed mind yesterday, and is entering hospice care. He is in no pain (yet), condition has actually improved and has had the opportunity for many family members to come and visit. I sense a winding up of a life well-lived, and the opportunity for many "I love you's". This would have been missed if his request had been immediately jumped upon and was legal. Don't know what the next few weeks will bring, there may be a time when the suffering will be great and wish for euthanasia, but glad at least of the past couple days.

Euthanasia is a means of respecting the sanctity and quality of life while providing an individualRead More the choice to die with grace and dignity. It is a very personal choice, but a choice that an individual should legally be permitted to make - provided of course, there is a protocol established. Whether or not to pursue euthanasia should not be a decision that could be made on a whim, when the subject is experiencing a low point.

RON Ostrodamus July 8, 2014 at 01:06 pm
What is called "palliative" of "comfort" care is for the most part also a myth.Read More Pain killing drugs themselves often have horrible side effects including horrific dreams and then comes the time they simply do not work and who is there to suction out your throat when you cannot communicate that you are choking on your own secretions? This eventually results in what is called the "death rattle" a horrible term that is still used today by both nurses and doctors. A cardiologist once told me after I brought in a friend of mine to Beaumont that after the third rattle there is little hope, and it is only recently that some kind doctors are informing people that CPR on the elderly invariably breaks the ribs and causes pain in a knowingly futile effort which only prolongs the dying process.

Hmmmmm....You notice whenever someone has a position inconsistent with the Liberal agenda they areRead More simply told to shut up? No discussion on the merits...just shut up. BTW: Alternative publications have always justifiably prided themselves as being totally different from mainstream print media. Reveled in the fact that their following would always support them as their perspective would be embraced and accepted by more and more Americans. Sadly, for them that has not happened. Metro Times decision to closely associate themselves with drugs, porn and prostitution pretty much tells their story of desperation. Although the internet has definitely challenged the mainstream print media business, to their credit, they haven't sunk to the levels of Metro Times to try and survive.
K. Scott July 1, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Hey boot licker boy wonder. Just based on your post you have no idea what the Metro Times does orRead More how they operate. You attacked them as a liberal rag so when people speak to you on your level you get your knickers in a twist. All of that new advertising came from Real Detroit Weekly that merged with MT. But don't let facts get in the way of your rant. Go turn on Fox and leave the adults to talk. Your not interested in any other view but your very, very narrow one.
