Right To Die Misconception

I heard a woman on the radio who was worried that physician assisted suicide could be invoked by accident. That small chance meant nobody should be allowed it no matter what agony they were in. Physician assisted suicide is a legal procedure. You no more likely to invoke it accidentally than you are to get married accidentally or buy a car accidentally. Two experts must judge you competent before you can even request it. It is not something you can do in an Alzheimer’s fog. Further, the way things are now, physician assisted suicide does occur without any safeguards, without paperwork, under the table. You will be much safer from accidental death than you are now.
