Perhaps the middle ground is for the individual to pre book so to speak with a list of requirements
Mrs L has stated if she ahs no quality of life through illness / injury or shes gone completely broken brained as in putting electric kettle on the fire, giving rabbit food to the washing machine and doesn't know who people are or where she is - she would like a one way visit to Dignitas - Im in complete agreement**
Surely in those circumstances - its very much the persons request and is it right to deny them the right to choose
**That's agrees with the sentiment - not agrees as in I will be booking her flight regardless.
My wife has repeatedly said "Rule #1) If you ever develop Alzheimer's I will drive you to a town 200 miles away and push you out of the car with fake ID. #2) Incontinence, don't even ask for help, #3) If you ever end up in a wheelchair say goodbye to the outside world."
You mean like the laws on abortion? Two qualified doctors to sign off that it would be detrimental to health, either physical or mental. Now it's used as another means of birth control. In the GP practice I worked at one doctor would say yes and another one would sign it off without seeming to ask about any health matters.
Checks and balances are all well and good if they are adhered to.
So saying, I've told the missus if I get to that stage she can just put a pillow over my head one night. As long as she buries me under the fine hedge at the bottom of my garden cos I planted that from scratch and want to keep feeding it for a while.
