A woman by the name of Britain found out that she had terminal brain cancer. She made a decision to move to Portland Oregon where assisted suicide is legal. I total disagree a Doctor's hippocratic oath is to do no harm. BTW.. Do you know who invented the whole concept of physician assisted suicide the Nazis. Why because for the NAZIS those who were disabled or burden were dispensable. By legalizing physician suicide we're entering a slippery slope.

I do support it. By the by, the Nazis did not 'invent' the concept. Look at your ancient Greek history, for instance.

I support it under certain circumstances such as the one this young lady is facing.

We do it for animals and we call it "humane". Can we not extend the same care and compassion to our own species?

Once again, hyperbole trumps fact. The NAZIs murdering people had NOTHING to do with the concept of physician assisted suicide. By definition, the commission of suicide is by someone choosing to cause their own death, assisted or not.

She is terminal, and she should be able to choose the way she dies.

She is not just terminal .... her death by cancer will be extremely painful.

The slippery slope argument is so overused as to become contemptible and absurd in most cases.
She is making what, for her, is probably the wisest decision and thank goodness, there is someplace where she can exercise it.

Assisted suicide something I support 100%.

I want the choice for myself if I am ever that ill.
