If I am in my right mind, don't want to either be in pain or constantly drugged, have no mobility, perhaps cannot move and need someone else to wipe my arse or feed me -- why can't I opt for the same sort of death as we give a terminal family pet. When my 100 pound dog's hip went out from old age a few years ago , and I found her trying to get up out in the yard in 100% sun and close to heatstroke, I was able to put her on a blanket and carry her inside. Then I had a vet come to the house and who gave her two shots. The first was an anti-anxiety medication. Friends and family gathered. A second shot and she was instantly unconcious and 2 or 3 seconds later dead. Why can't I have the same dignity. The fact that I don't is one of the reasons I depise religions.
