California just became the fifth state to permit medically assisted suicide along with Washington, Vermont, Oregon, and Montana. The law says that two doctors must agree that the patient’s illness will be terminal within the next six months for them to be prescribed the life ending medication and they must be able to swallow the medication themselves. I honestly can’t believe this isn’t the law everywhere. If people are without a doubt going to die from their illness, why make them suffer through the inevitable? We give our pets better treatment than that. I’ll take it a step further and say that I don’t even think that you should have to be terminally ill. It’s your own body and you should be able to do with it whatever you want.
