Letter: Deep concerns over assisted suicide

(Continued)

And what happens to those who go this route alone? This is a concern as there is no requirement for any notification of family; or for anyone to be present with the person. What if only part of the prescription is taken due to weakness or nausea and one doesn’t quite die? Where is the dignity in that? I would prefer to put resources into symptom management and palliative care; not an all or nothing, do-it-yourself answer such as suicide. Vote no on this question!
