Euthanasia

Euthanasia

Post  cyprussyd on 2016-05-13, 10:47 am

Back in the news following assisted suicide of..

Sex abuse victim in her 20s allowed by doctors to undergo euthanasia.


A very difficult and emotive subject but, I watched my mum suffer dementia and suffer. For the time she was at home she was happy in her own way but. The time came when she had to go into a care home, so sortmething she was always afraid of and that's when I lost her.
The next two years of her life had no quality of any sort, I dont want that end so I would welcome the option to end my life when that time came.

But there are massive risks, whats your view.

Tricky subject

If there is no quality of life, or if there is only suffering and pain as a future then yes. But who presses the button?

In general, a very compassionate way to end a loved one's suffering, but there is a danger of abusing the system!

And those two replies show how a compassionate end is never easy.

You know I lost Osca a few weeks ago, he was starting to suffer badly. We visited an expert, his vet who knew him and me. She said it was my decision and mine alone however she gave me her expert opinion. I felt and still feel I only had one choice for Oscas sake and when I made that choice the vet said it was the right choice.

She pressed the button because she knew the button to press.

If a loved one has lost all quality of life and is suffering I feel it should be allowed....but as Vinkel says...who makes the final decision that that is the case?

A while back I had a serious life threatening illness....my thoughts at the time was if the pain was no longer bearable I wanted a way out.

I suspect I would think the same if dementia was the diagnosis
