Julie Ali I don't agree with this death by doctor business because it puts the handicapped at greater risk. Right now we have regulations in place to prevent those without insight and the mentally ill from having access to this service but I imagine that a few more years of such a program and we will have more and more categories of folks allowed termination.

Barry Douglas Robbins All doctors who deal with elderly patients make decisions that determine how their patients die. No doctors perform heat transplants on 90 yr. olds. There comes a time when each of these physicians makes that call to 'not resuscitate', unless some loony religious relative gets involved.

Julie Ali Actually the loony religious relative can be a family member with genuine doubts about the decisions of doctors to impose DNR orders. For eg in my handicapped sister's case a DNR order was imposed on her by doctors for non-compliance of her BIPAP machine. No one bothered to do a compliance program for her. It is unrealistic to expect handicapped citizens to be compliant with BiPAP use and yet we had entire swaths of doctors yapping -non-compliant and therefore do not resuscitate. 
Now with a compliance program, my sister is not going to hospital. It is amazing how the provision of an integrated care plan that ensures that supports are present can change compliance and end the DNR junk.

 So what has happened to empathy and compassion? Nobody should be obliged to suffer or to lose their dignity. Isn't death just a natural part of life? These doctors should really go back to school or change profession.

Lance Walters-Unrau Because they refuse to do one procedure? I'm not against assisted suicide, but we need more doctors, forcing them to quit over this is immoral and counter-productive.

You want to terminate grandma?
Do it yourselves , you cowards.

Don't force us to do it.

Julie Ali I am all for empathy and compassion. However I see good palliative care and excellent pain management as the way to go not terminating folks to ensure economic benefits to the health care system. This legislation is all about saving government money.

 Killing is killing. Some people just aren't cut out for it, others seem to get some sort of a rush out of it. Maybe one day this country will see the error of its ways. Slaughtering the unborn at will, now lethally injecting those at the other end of life. Disgusting.

Julie Ali I agree with you. The death by doctor business is good for government and the insurance companies but not good for the handicapped and those without insight who will be next in line for disposal.

Richard Lane I support assisted dying. We should not be asking doctors to do this, IMHO. We should have specialized technicians who administer the drugs in order to protect doctors from violating their Hippocratic oath.

Julie Ali I don't support death by doctor but I do agree that mentally competent folks should be given this choice and that doctors should not be involved in ending life. Their job is to do no harm.
