Does anyone realize that two states in our union have laws allowing doctor assisted suicide? There are also three states where it is not a criminal act to assist in a suicide. THREE states have abolished the common law of crimes and do not have statutes criminalizing assisted suicide : North Carolina, Utah, Wyoming In Ohio, that state's supreme court ruled in October 1996 that assisted suicide is not a crime. In Virginia, there is no real clear case law on assisted suicide , nor is there is a statute criminalizing the act, although there is a statute which imposes civil sanctions on persons assisting in a suicide. Only the states of OREGON and WASHINGTON permit physician-assisted suicide.

Don't have a stroke or develope a degenerative disease like MS or Huntington's in these states. Don't have a baby with life threatening conditions...cause there are doctors who will side with death out there and your state may give them the power to make your decisions for you. http://www.patientsrightscouncil.org/site/ I work in healthcare. I see the trend where I live towards speeding up the process of death, I hear doctors say it'll cost to much to save them, it's time we faced the facts and time to stand up to the social engineers who want to plan our lives from cradle to grave...if they let us be born to begin with. http://zombietime.com/john_holdren/ http://blog.jonolan.net/politics/complete-lives-system/ Be brave-step outside your comfort box and find out what our leaders and our so called scientists are up to. Read the material. Then lets talk....

First world nations are very unique in their culture not to mention deaths and it's very terrible that such thinking is so permissive, I just pray that these kind of laws does not end up in our country.

I think money should be the last reason this decision should be made. I believe in people making their own decisions, and being allowed to ask for help to hasten their deaths, but I don't think a doctor should EVER be allowed to "help" someone die against their will. THAT is still murder. (in my books, anyway.) Some people do not want their lives artificially prolonged by respirators and the like. They have faith that it is their time to go.

I agree, I pass meds in a nursing home. Normally we are not allowed under any circumstances to force a person to take their meds. NEVER. Except when they are on hospice. The rationale is that they are not thinking clearly and don't know what they want or don't want...how do you feel about that? I wouldn't force someone and the told the nurse they had refused...and she gave it to them (Xanax 2mg.) in a bite of pudding. After I told her the woman refused.
