Assisted dying; yes or no?

    A healthy 75 year old woman ended her life at a clinic in Switzerland because she could not face the natural end as she had been a palliative care nurse and had seen how life often ended.

    Any comments?

    The woman decided to end her life, so it was entirely her decision.

    thumbs up, Nom.

    Certainly not if I'm healthy, would like to think I'd go peacefully in my sleep if possible, if not, and I'm definitely going to die I would accept any assistance offered.

    "Healthy"? Are you sure there isn't more to this story? Seems very strange.

    I think assisted death is right in some circumstances, but is individual, not something that can be all-inclusive.

    Hospice care is a better choice for me

    Nom, you certainly know how to ask a much commented question,there is no yes or no to this question,,it is a personnel decision..however my answer is no,i believe i was brought into this world by God for a reason,,so it was never my life to end,,if i believe i belong to God,then i will leave it in his hands,,corney as it sounds that is my belief..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<..

    No I don't  agree with it personally,  and in this cases I don't think she was seriously  ill. It's a bit different if you have a terminal illness, and you are suffering,  even then I don't agree with it.  This case certainly seems a bit  strange to me.

    If someone is suffering and wants to be put out of their misery, then I don't have a problem with that. We do it for our pets, don't we ? ............cuz we don't want them to suffer.

    Personally, I would rather have God end my life .

    I'm with Baby Jesus on this one; your Lord and Savior. NO.

    You never cease to surprise me Digger,,which is not a bad thing for me..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    I already know my demise. I will win the lottery. As I walk up to lottery headquarters with ticket in hand I will be struck by a meteor and killed instantly. Im all for putting people out of their misery. Why prolong pain and suffering with no good prognosis .

    If all else fails, and the amount of pain, yes but NOT because you just want to……..
