Forced agony

Initiative 1000 [pdf],

The proposed Death With Dignity Act

“When death is inevitable, we shouldn’t force people to endure agonizing suffering if we don’t have to,” says Former Gov. Booth Gardner.

“We have all made tough decisions throughout our lives, and we should be trusted to make tough decisions about the end of life. It’s about autonomy, personal choice and respect. I was in control of my life.

“I should be allowed to be in control of my death.” [LA Times]


Washington State is moving ahead with a Death With Dignity Initiative, and these are humane steps. Their link is It’s My Decision.
