I'm a strong proponent of death with dignity. In Washington state they have a law that says if you're terminal, with less than 6 months to live, you can choose your own time. I think its a very important step. I mean, c'mon, for my entire life I've been told that its the humane thing to do to "put down" an animal who's dying and in pain. And yet for humans, even if the patient really, really wants it, they're doomed to stick around through whatever pain and agony is in store for them, usually in the hospital, and often with extreme measures being taken to prolong the misery. My family has at least all signed living wills, but they don't go far enough. Its my body, my life. If I'm dying, I don't see why its anyone's business how I go out. I'd prefer to go out quietly, peacefully, and painlessly, in my own bed, surrounded by loved ones. That's how it should be. My choice.
