I totally agree that people who are ill and want to die have that right to make that choice.
I resent the fact that government and religion get in the way of what I see as a basic freedom of choice. Lets face it this right was grabbed from us because of a few stinking rich who were worried their relatives might give them a quick shove.
We put down our pets when they are suffering and there is no hope. Yet my grandmother was brought back to life against her wishes by some 'indulgent' doctor, who thought we should thank him for his efforts at keeping her alive and in considerable pain.

God uses floods not guns. Shame on you all, but there is nothing much to say for the corrupt sheep to soon have a rude awakening.
A 24-year-old Belgian woman who suffers from depression and has had a "death wish" since childhood has been granted the right to die — even though she's not terminally ill.
Laura, who entered a psychiatric institution when she was 21, said her alcohol father and troubled childhood contributed to her longtime "death wish."
A gay man in Belgium is attempting to end his life through the country’s euthanasia laws because he can’t accept his sexuality.
The 39-year-old, who is going by the name Sebastian to protect his identity, would have to get three doctors to agree that he has demonstrated “constant and unbearable physical or mental suffering” in order to be granted a right-to-die by euthanasia.
“My whole life has led me to this, really,” said the man, who admitted that the hardest thing for him is the thought of telling his family. “I have always thought about death. It is a permanent suffering, like being a prisoner in my own body. A constant sense of shame.”
