"Lucy I'm sorry to hear about your father. I happen to agree with you. I was upset about what they did to Dr.Kevorkian - he used to give assisted suicides but was put in jail. It is your life and if you are in pain I don't see why you…"

"I agree Jerry about whose life is it anyway?  Just like when the government tells a woman what she can and cannot do with her body.  Whose uterus is it anyway?"

"Thank you for all your condolences.  And thank you for not calling me "emotive".  I still believe religion is driving the laws for these types of events.  We as humans can do better.  I know death is a part of life,…"

"My wonderful father died 3.5 years ago at the age of 95.  He suffered a lot in the months before he died.  I don't know how much because he never was one to complain or even talk about it.  But it was obvious that his body was…"

Legal Euthanasia - Death with Dignity

Hello fellow Atheists,I have just lost my Father after watching him slowly die for 3+ days in a Hospice. It was the most horrific & painful event I have ever witnessed.  The Staff was caring & respectful but there was nothing peaceful or dignified about his passing.  Not only am I traumatized & heartbroken, but I am filled with anger.  As a society we will not let our cats & dogs suffer such a death & will put them to sleep -  for humane purposes. I ask you-  why I am forced…See More
