When I was a nurse, particularly in the field I practice, military...
I understand the need for assisted suicide in SOME cases. However, this sort of practice should and is suppose to have red tape and a deliberation
process for the patient, the family, and the licensed medical officials, who are going to assist in the death.
I believe in total individual freedom. If someone wants to take their life, that is their business. BUT, when it's assisted, and a person is asking
someone else to take up the burden of assisting the person through the process... that's something totally different and can manifest later in
traumatic ways for all involved, after the deceased loved one is on their otherworldly journey.
I understand, these patients are suffering and in pain, but so is everyone involved in that persons life personally. The family watching their loved
one suffer, the medical professionals assigned to take care of the well being of the individual... For me, nursing, was daily heartbreak. I care that
much.There is more to consider than just the person who wants to be assisted before natures time, to the hereafter. Ya know?
