This is what the Australian scientist keeps saying. He has even headed to Switzerland for assisted dying. Are there people who just wish to die and they have already made it in life? I prefer to live life until my creator decides its time for me to leave this world!

@porwest He was a professor and researcher at a university here. This gives the background. In the end he fell at home and wasn't found for two days and the hospital imposed quite rigid restrictions on him. If he had been forced into a nursing home he would have been denied any choice in his future and at that point he decided to try to go to Switzerland. I know each person has their own opinion which is fine but I am right behind his decision.
Perth man David Goodall says he resents having to fly to Europe to end his life but has been left with no other choice.
@aureliah Do you know that many carers or nurses could be very rough with their charges? All sort of abused cases came out from hidden cameras, especially when the victims are very old and weak, and can't defend themselves. Nursing homes or village for seniors are not cheap generally. I used to dream of living in a similar place when I was a child , but now I know better from reading news.

I'm not aware of that story but when I've heard of similar things it's usually because the person has some type of terminal illness. Some states allow for assisted dying while most do not. There was a young woman that decided to go on her terms with her family around her and went to Oregon, if I remember correctly. I believe that God knows when we will go but isn't the one causing it to happen.
