  • Jul 21 2012: Fundamentally this is a question of education. Instead of the term "euthanasia", for which many people have an aversion to, the term should be "physician-assisted suicide". Thus we should begin the conversation of how we can compassionately assist those who are terminally ill, to decide how and when they wish to leave this life.
    To die with dignity is a human right.
