Honestly, I have no feeling either way about assisted suicide. I do tend to think of meeting death on your own terms to be the more humane solution towards the concept of mortality though. It seems more fitting than letting whatever wasting illness rot away the remnants of your life. I am far away from the consideration of such a situation in my own life, but it is a consideration for love ones around me. I can only pray, that when it is time for them to go, that they leave with as much dignity, and as little anguish for their own lives, as possible. Death will always be hard for the survivors, we can make it much easier for the dying.
