THEY WON'T LET ME DIE....1/28/23

Imagine a close friend with a terminal illness who wants help to end his or her life to alleviate their suffering, but legally can't. Only 11 states currently allow Physicians Assisted Suicide. Instead people in the other 39 states are forced to endure excruciating pain until the end, while do-gooders around them preach about the sanctity of life.

Dr. Jack Kevorkian, or Dr. Death as he was known, pioneered PAS by participating in the death of about 130 patients during his career. He was tried, convicted of 2nd degree murder, and sentenced to 10-25 years in prison for his actions, but was released after serving 8 of those years. As far as I'm concerned, he's a hero.

Adults of sound mind should have the freedom to check out when and any way they want to, even if they aren't physically or emotionally impaired. The fictional "Thanatorium" in the 1973 movie, “Soylent Green" offers us a model of how suicide could be pleasantly accomplished, although I wouldn't necessarily be inclined to snack on the wafers coming out of the facility.
