Re: Dr Kevorkian goes to Europe

Yeah, and that palliative care and hospice in this country have become much more acceptable and widely used. It wasn't always that way. They used to hook you up to life support indefinitely. They had to keep you alive no matter what, it seemed. The Karen Ann Quinlan case here in NJ finally allowed relatives the right to turn off life support in patients that were terminally ill or otherwise not going to recover. Western medicine saw it as a failure if their patients died, rather than a natural occurrence that will happen to us all, so they took extreme measures to keep folks alive no matter what. Thankfully that is changing.

Here, here!! Well said. Although there will always be a plethora of moral and ethical objections to this type of thing, it only makes sense to me.

edit: And, great **** stirring sheep boy!

That's certainly another negative aspect, along with the stress of watching a loved one be forced to "live" that way.
