Re: Thoughts on assisted suicide in... Nancy
My uncle was in such uncontrollable pain from metastasized lung cancer he begged the Drs to "put him to sleep." The cancer had spread everywhere. The Drs finally put him into a medical coma as there was noting left to treat him with. It was a relief to the family when he died a few days later. Was it euthanasia or his time? It doesn't matter. His suffering ended. Had assisted suicide been legal back then (1970s) he would have been spared months of endless pain.
