-This is a sensitive topic, I would not consider physician-assisted suicide due to my religion.Not only that I would want to cope with it as best as I can and try to live my life. I would not want to go down without a battle.

-I do not think it should be legalized. I put myself in a doctor’s perspective and who would want to play a part in something like that? This is not something I believe should be a thing or even normalized.

The question as to if I were a 75-year-old and had a terminal illness, and severe pain, would I consider a physician assisted-suicide as an option for coping with my deteriorating condition? No, I say this because I don’t believe I should be consulting a medical professional honestly. Morally I would want to go to my family and have them help with the decision and then perhaps go on to consult a physician on “assisted suicide” however, I still don’t believe in it.

Should physician-assisted suicide be legalized for older people with a terminal illness, and who are in severe pain who want to die? I have mixed feelings about this, one side of me agrees that it should be legalized, and another believes it shouldn’t. Coming from someone who has had a family with a terminal illness, to have my loved one be able to have their physician help assisted-suicide, I couldn’t fathom. At the same time I believe it is anyone’s right who doesn’t want to suffer anymore to be able to have that option if it exists.
