Life in a broken bureaucracy with a bendy and borked body
If assissted suicide were legal, with proper safeguards to ensure that no-one would ever be killed against their will, would you still oppose it?
I can't think of anything sadder than someone dying - not because they HAD to - but because they WANTED to. And the sadness arises out of the understanding that somehow, their lives got to be SO bad - that they were willing to end it rather than go on. That is so, so sad. That their lives got to be that bad - that there wasn't anyone near and dear enough to help enough to make it better enough so that they might want to live.
