A hot topic on Facebook, right now...

Members Only

Into a hornets nest I shall go.  The hot topic is - legal euthanasia or assisted suicide.  The question posed - for or against?? 

 

This is likely to put a wedge between a number of friends - BUT - I have already spoke to family and friends, and there is a clinic in Switzerland - that I intend to use when the time is right.  I worked in the emergency medicine field for more then 20 years.  The last five years I worked as a private medic under contract for those with terminal illnesses(mostly cancers), and those suffering from dementia.  It is under these situations, while I still have dignity and peace of mind - I will seek solace in knowing, I am able to determine when.

 

Choice, it is a wonderful thing, and this is a choice I chose.  I am sure I shall get an ear bashing from many of you...
