Re: Assisted dying
28 June 2012
Could we have a little more integrity in the debate about assisted dying please? Dr Wong expresses "great sympathy" for individuals with unrelievable suffering such as Tony Nicklinson, as did many of the speakers in this week's BMA debate. But as Tony Nicklinson tweeted in the Observer, are they "seriously telling me that I must sacrifice my life for the common good?" Do they "seriously ask me to accept that intelligent people who can work out how the universe began can't devise a few simple rules to that those who need protection get it while those like me get assistance?"
Of course there are solutions, and to ignore them is not showing sympathy but cruelty.
