Why Assisted Suicide

I have heard many people say You don’t need assistance. Do it yourself!

I don’t think these people have the tiniest clue what is like to be seriously ill. The thought of making a cup of coffee feels like an Everest expedition. There is no way you can wrestle a helium tank and screw on the tap for a gentle suicide. You could not even open a bottle of ginger beer.

They don’t have the mental energy to make a phone call, even if someone dials for them.

Because they cannot count on help, they must kill themselves way early while they are still both physically and mentally strong enough.
