For many in the medical field it's difficult to discuss physician assisted suicide. Surprisingly many doctors are very much against physician assisted suicide. I personally believe that each individual has the right to make that choice for themselves. When i speak to other professionals about this they usually bring up 'morals', the problem i have with the argument is answered by a question: "Are we talking about religious morals, or morals from society". I always believed it was more ethical to allow someone to end their pain rather than the questioning is it ethical for a physician to end the life of his/her patient. Anyhow if you haven't already i would watch "How to die in Oregon" it's available on Netflix for download.
As I mentioned in another thread I'm a R.R.A, I see people all the time with Hodgkin's disease and other forms of cancer, and lymphoma. Every day you can see the emotional and physical pain they have to endure.
