I know this is mostly going to be a touchy subject for quite a few people and that it usually elicits quite strong emotions when discussing it.
However, watching the BBC documentary "Choosing to die" that was broadcast on Monday really made me think about what my stance is on Assisted Death.
When the BBC aired the programme they received 898 complaints from viewers over the content. (BBC flooded with complaints over Choosing to Die documentary - Telegraph) While the programme wasn't exactly impartial I do feel it successfully highlighted the requirement for a change in legislation.
We as humans have no control over how we are brought into this world and how we are raised. To me, personally I feel that if my quality of life had deteroriated to the point where I was a mere shadow of the person I used to be and life was a cocktail of drugs to keep me alive and in pain, then i'd choose an assisted suicide.
I had no choice as to when I came into existence, at least give me a choice as to when I.want to end it.
What are everyones thoughts on the subject?
