Discussion: France's President Wants To Legalize Sedation Of Terminally Ill Patients

Discussion for article #231122

Dying with dignity.

My idea of a perfect ending.

Here-Here! I speak from experience, both as an observer of years of unbearable suffering by my mother, and a survivor of TBI. For those who believe in the sanctity of life, there is absolutely nothing sacred about forcing someone with a terminal illness or injury to needlessly suffer through an unbearable life. Doing so only adds insult to injury. The moment and manner of death for the terminally ill should be the private and sacred decision of that person, and their doctor, and their family. That decision of others is none of my business. Governments should never pretend that they know best in such matters.
