The sound of doctors speeding up the death process does sound pretty bad. Unless you are the one suffering and feeling the mental and physical pain of someone that is in this position, you really cant say that it is wrong and doctors shouldn't be allowed to do that. Doctor assisted suicide is legal in 5 US states. Individuals who are suffering from a terminal illness and has a prognosis of 6 months or less to live, are given the option of doctor assisted suicide via court decision. "The Humane and Dignified Death Act" is an act that would allow a physician to end the life of a terminally ill patient upon the request of the patient, pursuant to properly executed documents. Under present law, suicide is not a crime, but assisting in suicide is. I believe we all have the moral right to choose freely what we do with our own lives as long as we do not inflict any harm to others. We have the right of "Free choice" and that includes the right to ends one life when we choose. We ourselves, I believe have an obligation to relieve the suffering or our fellow human beings and to respect their dignity. There are people lying in hospital today, afflicted with excruciating painful and terminal diseases that have left them permanently incapable of functioning in any dignified human fashion. All they have to look forward to is their lives filled with yet more suffering, degradation, and deterioration. Begging for a merciful end to their pain and dignity, I believe it is cruel and inhumane to refuse their pleas. It is not right to just stand their while someone is in agonizing and unbearable pain, knowing that they are dying and cant take the mental and physical pain anyone, and deny them their request to end their suffering. Compassion demands that we comply and cooperate.
